Subby, a "bob" is a shilling, 12d in old money or 5p in new pence.

Maybe the import shop where I buy my annual holiday kringle ring will have a can so I can give it a try.

On a scale of zero to British cuisine, I'm betting this ranks quite high.

I am going to challenge Death which I have beaten several times this year to a full English/Scottish(haggis)/Irish(potato bread) fry up.  Have not identified British Hanks locally (Bush's are all sugar) nor WP brown sauce yet

"If you want to eat well in Britain, eat breakfast three times a day."

Although a full fry-up is enough calories for the entire day.  And I think their highest-rated cuisine is Indian.

I like bangers and mash well enough, but pudding isn't really a favorite of mine. If it were that recipe would be heavenly. Thanks for sharing it.

I mean, we're all used to seeing highly dubious canned food like Christmas Tinner

This is much better in comparison.

It's a hearty soup based on British Christmas dinner ingredients, and soup in a tin is not exactly an unheard of thing.  Keeping it to its lane and treating it as soup, and not trying to compare it to with a homemade Christmas dinner, I'd say it looks pretty good.

It does look to be better than this monstrosity.

I really have nothing to say on this subject of gross food.  My wife was out of town this past weekend, and instead of grocery shopping, I just ate MREs leftover from after Hurricane Ian.

It looks great, though from TFA they only made 500 cans.

So well, yeah. Its an ad stunt that they couldn't sell at actual cost price.

Also, subby, all the trimmings? Why would you eat trimmings, isn't that the stuff you cut away because you don't want to eat it?

It was the first time I have had the heat-up MREs. Took me a little to figure out exactly how to do it with the water and sleeve etc.. They weren't 'bad' for the most part but I wouldn't want to eat them continuously. The breakfast of bread and jelly which didn't need heating was decent. The sweet potato smoothie left a lot to be desired in my opinion.
