People *buy* gravy? Also, I have two packets of jelly in the pantry, which should last me roughly two years. If a British farker needs some, just let me know.

I love the headline, subby!
 
2021-01-25 8:33:53 PM  
There was no gravy shortage with my Poots issue this morning, I tell thee!
 
2021-01-25 8:34:08 PM  
Oh no, I may have to eat something that does not contain jelly or gravy.

Spotted Dick still widely available.

Chin up, lads - we've learned that blancmanges reproduce asexually so we'll always have plenty of those.

What about jellied eels?
 
2021-01-25 10:22:11 PM  
Just figured out that "BBC News NI" = BBC News Northern Ireland, and not an abbreviated BBC News for Monty Python geeks.

If a jelly and gravy shortage is going to cause unrest it's no wonder Northern Ireland had Troubles.

I have learned from watching 'Chef' that in British cuisine, 'jelly' is not simply sweet Jell-O desserts.

Like, a savory meat pie in pastry with gravy and 'jelly' in the filling.  Not sure what that jelly is, but it ain't sweet Jell-O.

Maybe it's gelatin, used as a thickener.

like a lovely grey meal of pie and mash with jellied eels from F. Cooke

Yup, the 'jelly' in a pork pie is gelatine.

Since it's for sale in supermarkets, wouldn't that be an obvious yes?

I've bought it quite a few times, and whilst it's not as good as the real thing, it's better than nothing.

I don't know how it's made. Like KFC gravy, which you can also purchase, how do they make it?

KFC gravy tastes like shiat btw. At least here in Denmark. I don't get the Southpark meme at all.

Wait. So the green blob is the gravy and the red blob is jelly?

Neither look appetising. What the fark are those people eating over there?

Any way to watch ' The Grand Tour ' without having to pay Amazon?

Agreed.  It's just an emulsion of flour, salt, and MSG in vaguely chicken-flavored water.

This headline was rewritten for American readers.  For those who don't speak Yankee, he's saying there's a right paucity of fruit spleggings and meat water.

I actually like British food  it just gets picked on because the UK isn't the home of hot peppers and spices. All those spicy foods didn't do those shiftless foreigners any good when John Bull showed up and said he'd be staying for a few hundred years now did it?

For a nation that invaded over spices and tea, you'd think that they'd have better taste...

I dunno about my fellow British countrymen, but a bacon sarnie with no ketchup is blasphemy.

The British love spicy food. All those 'traditional British dishes' you hear about? Hardly anyone under 50 eats those anymore.

Other than the roast beef and two veg, and I think we only stick with that cause it annoys the French.

As long as they keep making plenty of Marmite & shipping it to my local Kroger stores we're cool
