Good on paper, not in practise

Recommended Posts

I was introduced to a vegan-friendly energy drink made entirely from plant extracts. Tenzing is the drink.
For me, it went through multiple layers of "wrong" with an aftertaste of "wrong" - who puts salt in an energy drink?

What weird not-right food/drinks have you found?

I've never tried it, but https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surströmming

During the production of surströmming, just enough salt is used to prevent the raw herring from rotting. A fermentation process of at least six months gives the fish a characteristic strong smell and somewhat acidic taste.

Alright so it's on Amazon for £17.

You're about 7 hours away from me by train, so might have to get a 1hr flight to Manchester, then get a train.

 

MakeWebGames, should I?

It pretty much still is. You've got 4 options here.
- Eat (takeouts/cafes/restaurants for miles)
- Drink (pubs for miles)
- Watch films (cinema)
- Leave

That's pretty much it

Jimmy? Yeah. I've not seen him for a lengthy time, come to think about it. Wonder if he's still got a pulse

Jimmy? Not aware of him, unless he's using a new name up there. One I'm thinking of is called Michael who moved to Bolton from Leicester. Most probably has a sign saying "Street Flowers".

This guy?
