Don't fancy telling my dad "Got you this tripe. Managed to get it a bit
more locally this time.........Pets At Home!!!"
Actually, if they also did brawn as well I might give it a go.......

Funny you should say that ...
I was in the canteen of an NHS *Hospital* yesterday. Lady staff member
in the queue in front of me bought an iced doughnut of a colour I am
sure did not exist anywhere else on the planet, it was somewhere
between Cochineal red and Tartrazine orange. I warned her she ought to
wear sunglasses whilst she was eating it or it might damage her eyes.
I OTOH had a corned beef sandwich on white bread, �1.20. It was salty
as hell even for corned beef.

sandwiches out of Brown/Granary type bread, presumably because it
doesn't absorb moisture from the filling.
They might as well go the whole hog and make them out of "Thinbrix"
the decorative slices of facing bricks used to "build" fake chimney

They don't already?
I refuse point blank to eat petrol station sandwiches, because I really
don't see the point in eating something that tastes of *absolutely*
