Usually, I am loathe to use processed foods, things which seem ubiquitous in many American kitchens. Most people I know can't even imagine making pancakes or cakes without resorting to the boxed mixes, whereas I have a hard time even buying a loaf of industrial presliced bagged bread. But I'll confess to my guilty indulgences - there are a small number of processed food items that I find either enjoyable or irreproducible in any other form, and I'll feature them in a series of blog posts.
First up, a recent discovery:
Not exactly flaky, more crumbly. Somewhat sweet, goes rather well with a cup of hot tea and some cheese - and watching a Wallace and Grommit film. Cheap enough that I can't seem to justify learning how to make them :).
