    Does anybody know why the only 2 decent bars are restricted again.
    The supply issues that LL have seem to be a bit of a joke. It is not as if the shelf life of the stuff is only a couple of weeks!

    We had both of them in unlimited supply this week Mikey, so maybe when you go next yours will too. :)

    I hate when they are out of them - they are the only 2 I can eat anymore - completely off the others now!

    Maggie did say to me that she had a "shipment" coming in on Friday - I wasn't able to get the St. Clements flavouring to make that tea we tried on Thursday - fingers crossed all will be well when we go on Thursday.

    That said I've kinda enjoyed a change in flavours this week, but can't wait to get my hands on those longer and thicker bars!!

    Fingers crossed then - looks like it is not a major problem - Hope that is the case!

    The reasons there so short supply is that the others are so bloody ghastly and they are kind of like real food. Just a thought.

    It is pretty annoying when things aren't available, with the money we pay and stuff. But I hear it's not the fault of the LLCs but LL itself

    I was told it is the suppliers who keep messing LL about, not that LL are not ordering enough for their popularity. So equally frustratng for LL as it is for us!

    I think demand keeps outstripping production! My LLC rationed hers during the bleak period over the winter, so we never went without, even though we couldn't always have what we wanted!

    Try freezing the toffee ones and sucking on them, or cooking the lemon ones into crunchy lemon biscuits.....heaven!

    Thanks for the ideas - I actually plumbed to have 2 lemon and 1 toffee in lieu of the ones I wanted.

    I have always quite strangely liked the lemon one (I am not a big lemon fan except when squeezed onto tandoori chicken!), but now I find that it tastes so full of chemicals with a nasty bitter after taste that I am having trouble eating it!

    I think Ill see if the biscuit recipe makes it palatable!

    Cheers

    Well the biscuit recipe does seem to make them taste OK - perhaps it is just the texture as there is atill a bit of after taste.

    Amazing how the swell up!

    Oh, just eaten an overdone one - it tastes much better slightly brown - very much like a ginger biscuit!

    I agree Mikey - I like all the biscuits ever so slightly burnt. Have to be careful though - can go to far in a split second!

    lol

    Ever since I was a little girl, I have always liked burnt food. burnt BBQ chicken, burnt toast, burnt cookies.....weird.

    My gran ALWAYS burnt our toast. Till it was BLACK. She told me by eating it I would get curly hair. So I did. And I have always made my toast nearly black. And I am still waiting for that first sign of curly hair. :D
