tunnocks tea cakes,ahh!! a wondrous confection with legs...no,not those kind of legs,i mean they've been going for yonks.for the uninitiated they comprised of a soft biscuit base & an A cup size dome of marshmallow all covered in the cheapest,most sickly coating of chocolate...perfick!!when i was a kid they were eaten by first applying gentle pressure to the chocolate so that it broke up like a hard boiled egg shell,the bits were picked off & eaten then the marshmallow dome was peeled off the base,the biscuit eaten & then the marshmallow last of all!!sadly the filling is now a sort of whipped mousse so one is forced to stick the whole thing in one's gob all in one go.rude not to really!!
