English Foods

Not to be outdone by the tasty treats fed to me by the Scots I've met, my English friend set me up with this collection of very British foods. 

Tea and crumpets
Toasted and slathered in butter and quite a tasty way to start the day. 

Jaffa Cakes
Spongey orange flavored cookie with chocolate on one side. This was the last cookie in the pack. They were devoured without hesitation. 

Oat cookie. Delicious when dunked into tea. For when you want to eat an entire pack of cookies, but want to pretend you're eating healthily. 

Spotted Dick
Yummy, but no sticky toffee pudding. Meant to be eaten with custard poured over it, but the photo of that just looks weird. 

There were chocolate bars as well, but they didn't survive long enough to be photographed. 

Cadbury Fruit and Nut is AMAZING. I attribute my survival on an 12-hour megabus journey to this bar (and a very kind man from Kazakhstan, but more about that later).
