Low fat condensed milk.

Seriously what is the point when its full of sugar and your probably going to use it to make caramel slice?

lol, I used to think that of people getting a big mac meal with diet coke BUT hey if you can save some sugar/carbs/calories in some way, why not?

I am that person who gets diet coke with their fast food! But I much prefer the taste of diet coke, it isn't about the sugar content for me.

I don't buy anything else that's low fat.

I'd always felt that way about people ordering gin & slim (low cal tonic) but I figure that if you can economise on the cals, it makes sense to do so  laugh.gif

Yuck... diet tonic is horrible.

My poor Bombay Sapphire had to put up with that indignity the other night as there had been a purchasing error.


You know what I think is pointless?

Fruitless hot cross buns.


DP accidentally bought some - What is the point? They set a new standard for bland.

If you don't like hot cross buns then there is a wonderful alternative there for you.......Bread!
Why you can even toast it! Totally fruit free!

diabetics would get a diet coke with their meal original.gif I know I did when I had GD.

Country Mel I HATE with a passion cooked fruit it's just not good. I like the no fruit hot cross buns plus depends on where you get them from is depending on how they taste. If you get the coles/woolworths ones they are just not great but bakers delight ones are amazing, however I do like choc chip hot cross buns.
I dont eat bread, only eat hot cross buns once a year so a bread type thing once a year is ok lol

When I was about 15, I went to a cafe with a friend and her Mum.  There was the waitress taking orders at the till, and then a few feet away the (very spunky) barrista making the coffees.  My friend's Mum ordered a "1/4 strength skinny cap with no chocolate please".  The barrista snorted, poured her a glass of water and slid it across the counter, then winked at me.  

It was the first time I fell in love.  laughing2.gif

What is redundant? EB... lol.

As for the hot cross bun issue - I don't like fruit in things like that. So obviously I go with the bakers delight chocolate hot cross buns! Duh! lol

Wine bottle stoppers are redundant in our house.
Also, any handy hints about freezing leftover wine to use in a casserole.



I have been known to order a skim cappuccino to go with my chocolate mud cake

Or threads on EB asking, "How long will this leftover *insert delicious food* keep in the fridge?"

also known as a 'why bother'. original.gif

I would get diet coke with any meal - why add 300 calories on top? besides, sugary drinks don't quench my thirst.

I also don't get fruitless HCBs - they're supposed to have fruit in them.

winestoppers are defunct now anyway with the rise of the screwtop.

Corkscrews - pretty redundant now!

It only becomes a problem when wine GLASSES become redundant.  Drinking straight from the bottle is anti-social.

I have a one litre wine glass so that I can look classy and still drink the whole bottle biggrin.gif
