    Flarn? Wait, what? :p

    It's a Spanish word, so it should be "flahn", not rhyming with ban/can at all. :D

    That's an excellent link Annia, that last one! I especially love the definition of Banoffee pie.

    My favourites are the banoffee pie, haggis, crisps and chips. :D

    I spend so much time on google because of this thread. :p

    It looks like those are similar to our thumbprint cookies.

    This thread has me wanting to go to World Market to look for British foods! They were out of the Heinz beans last time I was there, must go look for them again. I'll also look for Jammy Dodgers.
    I'm angry they changed around their food displays, though. Everything used to be categorized by country, but now it's by food type. It's harder to find specific things now. :(

    So you have to ask the staff where stuff is? "Excuse me, do you have a spotted dick?" Go on, do it :D

    The biscuit bit is so fake? I don't know how to explain it. It doens't seem edible. :p & the sweetness of it tastes weird and fake too.

    I do like the chocolate ones though...

    Flan rhymes with lawn.

    And now I understand the lyric, "How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?!" It brings back bad memories of being forced to eat meat as a child. I really didn't like it, but I wasn't allowed to fill up on "side dishes" and had to finish my meat if I wanted any "dessert".
