Have you ever craved or yearned a certain food, drink or even to re-visit a place from way back only to be so disappointed with the 'new' experience?
As I have been quite unwell for some time I was fancying a custard slice the other day. Oh, how I recall them, placed side by side on the tray in the bakers shop almost standing to attention resplendent in the glory of delicious flaky pastry, set yellow custard and that glistening layer of pure white icing.
My lovely OH picked some up at the supermarket - there's no independent baker within miles - and they were dreadful! Such a disappointment and tasted nothing like they used to. The pastry was grey, the custard filling was artificial and the icing..........well, I have no words!
I imagine many of you can relate to this and have your own experiences, so please share. What was it that disappointed you?
