UK food adventure #243: Revels. All mixed together in one bag, you don't know if you're getting a malted milk ball, plain chocolate, coffee creme, toffee, orange creme, or a raisin. These things are the candy version of Russian roulette.  :laugh:

Looks like an interesting snack.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Some of it sort of looks like big Milk Duds candy.

Wow - that is quite the trifecta of lesser-used ingredients.

Brawn is pretty bad,

My mother keeps all the left over fat in a metal bowl in the fridge and reuses over and over again must be 50 years old in places

she tips it out and has dripping sandwiches from the jelly and bits that collect in the bottom

I had trotters in Dublin. I actually enjoyed them, they had a surprising amount of meat on them.
