Not for me, but my OH would join you if it was black treacle and especially after fish and chips.

I love a syrup butty for breakfast.

Charleygirl Fri 12-Aug-16 21:45:45

OMG this is disgusting

Make a summer pudding because my blackberry plant is just hanging with fruit.

Oh golden syrup on Yorkshire puds yummy yummy

merlotgran Fri 12-Aug-16 22:05:34

Far too sweet for me.

Ana Fri 12-Aug-16 22:08:21

And me, these days. Used to love golden syrup on toast when I was young though.

. . . buy myself a shiny black fridge when my son leaves! grin

Rubylady we had a shiny black fridge which drove me mad as I could always see smudges and finger marks no matter how much I cleaned and polished. I sold it on e-bay and now have a silver one on which I cannot see marks.

I have bought a cheese and Marmite loaf at my local bakery. I am going to toast a thick slice and eat it just warm with a thick layer of real butter!
I love toasted white bread with butter and Golden Syrup, but try to resist. At least I shan't be able to have it on today's loaf!

When I was a girl it was common to have a sandwich/piece of condensed milk with treacle. It was called conny-onny. Sounds disgusting now.

Ruby No no please think twice re shiny black fridge go to the shop and put your fingers all over it! grin
Our fridge/freezer broke down last summer we needed one quick.
Currys had offer on and could deliver.
It was black.
It is the bane (sp?) Of my life.
Its the only fridge/freezer I have had to polish!
DH has now retired so have passed this duty on to him.
This morning he has used car polish on it and its still streaky in places.

If you do buy one, the only way I can think of you keeping it pristine is to wear gloveshmm

Re sandwich. Had golden syrup sandwiches as a child. But now too sweet.
Having said that I do like a
Frys cream sandwich every now and again.
So when you have your treacle sandwich katie I think I might join you with my frys choc sandwich.
Weekends are ok for sugar rush

Stainless steel fridges are just as bad, I had a stainless steel toaster and kettle and I was forever polishing them!

Andyf Sat 13-Aug-16 21:31:58

I've learned my lesson with shiny anything in the kitchen. I'm forever polishing the cream shiny unit doors. I thought it was a good idea at the time. Thank goodness for Betterware smear free window foam.

You've all just ruined my dream! sad

Willow500 Sun 14-Aug-16 05:38:30

Ruby I have a black shiny fridge freezer, dishwasher, washer and tumble drier. Yes they do show dust and cat hair but are easily cleaned and the fridge doesn't show any more marks than the silver one we have - go for it grin
Re treacle - used to love golden syrup on Yorkshire pudding when I was a child and also used to make a mean treacle tart but it's too sweet for me now as well as the guilt of eating all that sugar sad

My weekend treat is golden syrup on gf crumpets - well gf crumpets aren't really a treat but you get my drift.

Auntieflo Sun 14-Aug-16 09:03:30

My weekend treat is a Belgian bun

POGS Sun 14-Aug-16 10:30:56

I have recently been introduced to golden syrup on a garlic naan bread with a curry.

I initially thought No that's so wrong but I tried it and loved it. confused

Teetime Sun 14-Aug-16 10:33:43

NO pogs that is gross - cant try that one. shock
