Food we no longer eat

Recommended Posts

There have been some posts on here in the last few days about food no longer part of the everyday staple diet and thought a thread to discuss these is timely.

 

ill kick us off with spam fritters. Spam deep fried in batter

No batter, but I enjoy a thick slice of fried Spam as part of my breakfast each day at work.

What other parts is your breakfast made of xyy?  Black pudding is another delicacy not seen much of now. But those fancy chefs sometimes have a go at bringing it back

I do indeed. 

With scrambled-eggs, tomatoes and a slice of black-pudding.

Lost 5 stone on this regime.

Specialist pork butchers used to be common. Saveloy (proper stuff, not the carp sold in supermarkets and chip shops ) and smoked polony. My life is impoverished now these are no longer available

There are still two butchers in Hartlepool that do proper saveloys - bright red, full of lard and salt, and the look of a porn-star's nob about them...!

You are thinking of ordinary polony saveloys, at least in god's own are smaller, kind of wrinkled and a light brown colour. Can't think what they remind me of

Morrell's in Hartlepool do a smoked savaloy that is a light-brown colour and is a bit wrinkly - but whatever the regional variations, I am guessing we both agree that those mass-produced orange things they sell in supermarkets as saveloys are the spawn of the devil...!

Findus savoury pancakes. 

Very popular in the 70's when the Americans would drop them over Vietnam to flush Charlie out of the jungle. Sticks like sh1t to blanket and burns you down to the bone.

I'm still happily eating most of those, though my last spam fritter was a couple of years ago in a chippy.

Sugar in tea and particularly coffee used to be standard but that's now a minority habit.

Vesta Curried Mammoth Ready Meal.

Loved these, along with the findus pancakes mentioned above, but the beef rather than cheese

 

the vesta curry wasn't a ready meal as we know them today.  Dry powder that had to be reconstituted and boiled. 

 

Are te they still available?
