When I free-pour muesli I often pour too much, more than I can handle, so I wondered what size an official serving of muesli was. This led me to the website singleportions.co.uk and the distinctive, passionate style of its product descriptions, the sort of writing we’ll miss when all marketing copy is produced by large language models:
This is ALSO not stored in a ‘plastic dispenser’ as seen in “poor” Hotels and Guesthouses - how do we know how long that cereal has been there ? what’s the BBE date ??!! (and stale!) Always ask for fresh, sealed and dated cereal ; and if they don’t have any - suggest they come to this website
This is NOT a large box of - Frosties - that go stale the minute the box is opened - each one of these is fresh and the same as you would get in a Top Class Hotel
I’ve never had breakfast at a Top Class Hotel, so I don’t know if that’s true. I keep my (homemade) muesli in a plastic box and it hasn’t gone stale, but maybe it will now I’m only having 45g at a time. Alas I won’t buy anything from singleportions.co.uk, because actually I care about seagulls not choking to death on plastic waste.
(This dredged up a memory of Stewart Lee telling a made-up story about David Attenborough stealing ketchup sachets, and I’m pleased by how quickly I found the audio, an episode of the weak Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive from 2007, in which two other leading lights of the BBC are accused too.)
🎦 The Boy and the Heron.
The Holdovers, a Christmas film ingeniously released in mid–late January in the UK (and why not). Not quite as funny as the men guffawing at the back of the room seemed to find it, but what is?
