Comfort Food

Tunnock's Tea Cakes, for those outside the UK, are vaguely boob-shaped little confections of biscuit, layer of sticky red jam, marshmallow fluff, all coated in a thin layer of low-quality chocolate and wrapped in silver and red foil. They're a staple of lunchbox, school tuck shop and family tea.

They are not trendy.

So I was surprised the other night to see posters advertising them all along the Underground, obviously aimed at the busy young professional.

The slogan was '91 calories, tastes like 900'. Fair enough. Unfortunately, it's easy to misread as '91 calories, tastes like goo' - especially if you're a bit drunk, as I was.

I have not been blown up. Hope you haven't either.
