WTF? Friday

So last week we were reminiscing about childhood lunches and I remembered one of my favourite lunches which were Zoodles –   I started asking around the office if anyone else knew of Zoodles and it seems that our ‘animal noodle’ friends are only familiar to us Canadians (for added nostalgia see commercial below), for anyone else they are just tinned animal shaped noodles in a tomato sauce.

Anyway from there we started talking about odd lunch items and the famous ‘crisp buttie’ was mentioned.  A buttie is another name for a sandwich over here (can’t find out why) so you can have a bacon buttie (and I would highly recommend you do) which is a bacon on a white bread sandwich- best if its toasted and buttered, the un-toasted bread sticks to your teeth.

or a chip butty (french fries on a sandwich)… not joking at all.

…or the crisp sandwich (the crispwich) which one of the supermarkets launched as part of a line of nostalgic sandwich flavours which was essentially 2 slices of buttered white bread and a bag of ready salted (original) crisps (potato chips)….and here I was feeling weird about explaining my hippopotamus shaped noodles in tomato(ish) sauce.
