Hobb Knobbs stay crunchy. No matter how many time you dunk they stay the same
I don't care how crunchy they are when they are too salty.
But I am not stopping you dunking ... as long as it is in private
Come the Revolution and you'll all be dunking your biscuits in warm beverages or else you'll be deported to Southend
Totally agree. Hope no one is from Southend on here now
If there is anyone from Southend, please can you enlighten me as to whether or not you eat crunchy biscuits?
A couple of my relatives have the Southend postcode, they live in Basildon and Wickford,so maybe that doesn't count ? never been to Southend myself.
Southend sounds a looooong way from home. I think I'd rather dunk! I don't mind dunking Sainsbury's own version of Hob Knobs (vegan) but I dunno about Rich Tea. I shall consult the Womble, who is the Oracle of all things vegan in the UK.
Do they know whether the biscuits as soggy dunked, or dry and crisp, though?
That is a good question, I could get a family member to Facebook them ( I am NOT randomly asking them, because they will think I have really lost it lol )
Yes, I agree, it is a bit random. Funny how stuff becomes important, when it really isn’t. Especially as I don’t eat biscuits. Southend biscuit query will remain one of lifes little mysteries to me.
I don't and won't dunk and I'm going nowhere near Southend.
Tea is tea and biscuits are biscuits and they shouldn't meet outside of the stomach.
Hi @porl69 I am off to Turkey in just over 3 weeks but on this occasion will not be taking my pump. i just feel it is too m uch stuff to take, all of the pump spares plus pens insulin etc as back up. I will come off the pump a few days before i go to get back in routine for injections and make any necessary adjustments
You know you are allowed an extra carry on/hand luggage because of your T1D. Just contact the airline and they will make the relevant adjustments to your ticket.
What part of Turkey are you off to??
I live in a suburb of Southend..........no dunking of biscuits of any description in this household....
Suburbs don't count
Rich tea biscuits! Yuk! Only thing I could stomach when pregnant (hospitalised hyperemesis) used to nibble one over an hours period.
@helensaramay Have found Lidl’s Hobnobs to be less sweet and less salty. Called Oaties not Hob Nobs. Don’t eat biscuits as a rule but occasionally have one of these if a little low.
@smc4761 I get your point about all the pump stuff you have to take with you when you go away.
Personally, I decided it was worth it because, when I go away I need to vary my basal more than usual ... because I exercise more constantly. But I get that you want a break.
One thing I realised when I was forced back to injections (due to pump failure) was I needed my basal injection as soon as I stopped the pump because I had no basal on board. From then on, I had to remember my basal at that time of day which was an inconvenient 3pm.
Given you are choosing to return to MDI, my hint would be to remove your pump at the time you want to do (and remember to do) your basal injections.
@Pipp .....most definitely crunchy.....can’t stand a soggy biscuit....and preferably containing or coated with chocolate....
@Robinredbreast ....spent my childhood and grew up in the second of those so know it well....not far from Southend where we live close to now....I haven’t moved far....
Thanks @helensaramay , as always great advice from yourself.
Before I go on holiday to Turkey is about 3 weeks I am flying from Stansted to Glasgow, so I will see how my experience of scanners goes.
Other minor concerns are i will on a fairly hot country, typically around 30+ each day, so will be in and out of pool and swimming sea constantly. Not sure how strong the adhesive will remain on cannula. Will be using plenty of sun cream as well so not sure if this will affect adhesive.
Also the high temps, will this maybe have an effect on insulin within reservoir
