    They could be twins. Though from memory, I think the Timtam is lighter, more porous than the more dense Penguin.

    I literally just dusted strips of the extra firm stuff in a spicy salt thing I have and fried it in coconut oil until crispy.

    I shall be making a bowl of these to go with tomorrow's lunch-time salad :)

    It’s time for an award.
    It has to be the ....Top Banana award. The proud recipient is going to be @Knikki for services above and beyond in the name of research.
    Never before as one diabetic eaten so many biscuits to benefit so many of us. ( well not today at least :)).

    Hi all, flew to Barcelona yesterday, for lots of reasons it's the first time I've flown for years. Told the first guy I had insulin in my bag, he made no comment so off the bag went in its tray, along with keys out of my pocket. Forgot to take Libre reader out of the other pocket, set off the alarm, explained I wore a sensor, had to go through the full body scanner, wanded, patted down, then had to open bag and explain. Next time everything insulin's going in the tray separately.

    I absolutely hate the 'one person, one problem' caper. The closest 'dig' I have to it is Single Organ Doctors (or SODS for short)!

    I like Roobios - just to be different. Full of anti-oxidants (or is that anti-accidents)?

    Is that to work off the effects of all those biscuits you have been courageously testing on behalf of the diabetic community? Very wet and blowy here in Somerset.

    Aha - sorry for being dim, and many thanks.

    Oooh - in case you're ever tempted - the Real Eat Lentil chips (sort of actual crisps) in tomato and basil flavor spiked me horrendously! Hummus ones in sour cream and chives not so bad. However, I will stick to mixed nuts for a snack in future - no spike and lots of protein.

    @Knikki I think he means Rooibos - Red Bush tea in English, it's South African

    Rooibos tea - I drink about 8 cups a day. Red Bush Tea from Africa. Nicest without milk or sugar (for me) and a good flavour. As @kitedoc says, lotsa antioxidants and supposedly helpful with blood sugar. I dunno. I drink it because 12 mugs of strong black coffee a day weren't helping. I switched to 3 coffees in the morning with rooibos the rest of the day.
