Poliss, thank you for the tip off about the toffee rolls. That's all hope of losing weight out of the window  :smiley-laughing:

Hi  Dave,     

Welll i had open heart surgery last year &  nobodies  mentioned not eating sweets to me   ::) i   dont mind  dark   chocolate prefer to milk    ;)

So many of us with heart problems Nick, I had a 3.5cm hole repaired and later 2 stents fitted and SWMBO had a heart attack six weeks ago and is now like me on a cocktail of pills to keep her going.

What I miss most of all is Licorice Allsorts and Jelly Beans.
Keep on Smiling
Dave.
