    Did you pick the blueberries yourself or were they picked by the Bonne Maman company?

    £1 for 12. I hate to think what they might contain.

    Anything with The Muppets is good enough for me.

    It's got to be raspberry jam. And - I enjoy the ritual of licking the melted butter that's oozed through the crumpet, using my pinkie of course. I would never just lick a plate. Never.

    When Mr Belle and I visited the Finnish side of the family we picked the most delicious, tiny, sweet wild blueberries. They grow everywhere in Finland along with fragrant wild strawberries.

    Being Warburtons they tell you quite clearly on the packaging
    Wheat Flour [with calcium, iron, niacin(B3) and thiamin(B1)] water, yeast , raising agents- E450,E500; salt sugar, and preservative- calcium propionate.
    They also note that the crumpets are suitable for vegetarians :)

    Anything with a pint of melted butter dribbling through it is good for me.

    So why do blueberries just taste of mildly acidulated water over here? Baby Girl loves them but I'm sure it's because she's never had any granulated sugar product yet. She goes for a mango or a banana like some kids go for chocolate.

    Bless! I hope she'll be getting a teeny Lindt chocolate santa in her stocking at Xmas.

    I much prefer bilberries to blueberries. Smaller, but much tastier. (Same family?)

    There are loads of wild bilberries (blueberries, or blaeberries if Scottish) growing on the Clwydian Hills not far from Camp Jacob. This year was a bumper crop and it was lovely to nibble them walking up Moel Famau.
