Sounds like a load of old Tunnocks to me*
*(other snowballs are available)

We called them Tunnocks tea cakes up north. They were smooth chocolate as opposed to the snaíbaís which had coconut on.


I think Tunnocks Teacakes are a different product altogether, Malc. Biscuit base, marshmallow and covered in smooth milk or plain chocolate. I used to visit them fairly often as I sold packaging to them.

Thatís why I posted it Mick. You said a load of  Tunnocks but I didnít think they did snowballs.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

I think this is a happy thread thing, went to a fantastic concert/gig last night featuring Alice Cooper, the guy is 71 and still belting out the classics, he sounds just like he does in the albums, the shows are very theatrical, not your typical band on a stage type of gig.

The opener was a band called Motionless in White, they put a lot of effort in and although they we a little on the heavy/thrash side they seemed to be getting a loyal following.

The second act was Halestorm, they were very good, and have been around since 1997 and have released 4 albums.

All in all a great gig, and well worth the ticket price for 4hrs of love music.

Going again on Aug 16th, canít wait....

Excellent! Being a fan of tank films Iíve been after this one for a while. Then all of a sudden itís available to buy as a download for a mere £1.99 from iTunes or Amazon :thumbsup:

Itís actually called ĎInvincibleí over here, which is probably why I didnít find it soon enough to pay full price :D
