    Fair enough, not sure I ever had them. Sound ok though.

    Well the violet crumble is back and word is that they are bringing the polly waffle back too. Maybe Robern Menz can bring that back too?

    Here in NZ, L&P were making a creaming soda soft drink and it was the best creaming soda, and they fkn discontinued it and swapped for a meh ginger beer. :mad:

    Its ok, but not at all mind blowing, especially when compared to Bundaberg. The creaming soda was really good, probably the best I've ever tried

    They sell that L&P brand up at the chip shop but just one sort, lemon and something that begins with a P. Kiwi people run it.

    speaking of ginger beer, is bundaburg ginger beer sweeter and less tangy than what it used to be?

    Something else I've been thinking about, Large dim sims. Not that round ufo crap that there is now, the old style thick outer crunchy casing with the same filling as the small ones. How I miss getting one, peeling the four sides down, scooping out the filling and eating it and then eating the crunchy shell goodness.

    I miss NZ and my L&P. But always make sure I get some when I travel back for holidays.

    I bought some once, I can't remember if I liked it. Not enough to keep getting it (but then I don't usually get soft drink and if I do Coke usually wins). It's just interesting that we've got our little kiwi "outpost" over here with a kiwi product in stock. I don't remember seeing the L&P brand around and about, though I'm sure it'll be sold elsewhere.

    Link say Woolies don't have them available. Does anyone know how much they sell them for when they are available?
