I Can't Believe It's Not...

Cream?


Julian and I have both been suckered in by this fakie-mac-tricks a lot. It looks like cream, and unless you look closely, you may not realise that the word 'cream' on the side is not a descriptor of the product, but a comparative statement. Let me assure you, it is NOT cream. It cannot be whipped, and pours like milk. Of course, you only discover that it is fake after your guests arrive and/or the shops have shut. I would like to save as many of you as I can from this horrible experience.

Shame on you Elmlea.

Aha! Less fat than double cream, because it's not even single cream!

Just while we're on it, neither of you *need* less fat than double cream....

I opened the fridge last night, and there was a new open container of Elmlea... Kristy had not read this post.
