Don't worry Mel, in a few posts time someone will read the first post not bother with the others and be outraged.

Here's hoping  O0   ;D   :D

aweeee, I hope that the preceding posts are overlooked as it's a thread that will get bumped every now and again and further outrage will follow, lol.

Kendal Mint Cake....it's not a mint and it's not a cake, it's a cross between soap and mouthwash  :D

That is to denigrate soap and mouthwash! The only saving grace of KMC is that you will never be hungry if you have some in your pack on the basis that if you are, you would have to eat it.

Kendal Mint Cake is on the banned list (vile, horrible stuff it is) so it makes no difference if the ingredients are being changed  ;)  :)

Shame I missed the other posts that have been deleted  :D

Edited to add, I have just realised Ridge posted about deleted posts that were on another forum  ;D

Kendal Mint Cake is still seen as one of the most beneficial quick energy boost, snacks on the outdoor market, that's why it's been a favourite of many walkers for over a hundred years.
It may be incredibly high in sugary content, but when ones glucose energy reserves are almost depleted, it has that amazing effect of recharging the battery's.
On reading some more background to Romney's, Quiggins and a few other companies who developed  the sugar bar, back in the very early part of the last century, as such was it's popularity, John Hunt and the successful 1953 Everest team used it, whilst on the mountain.

It's a bit like Marmite, you either like the incredibly sweet taste of Mint Cake or you do not.

Its been a while since ive bought any, but the chocolate covered version is a favourite of mine.

What will the Government target next.?

Placing a tax on sugar, will do nothing at all to the majority of people living in the Uk.

The overweight alway's complain about the yummy things in life, the things that are making them obese.

Many people have the capacity to do something about their weight, but because there is no easy fix to their problem, they lay the blame on sugar in food.

The easy answer to that, is eat less sugar, and burn off a few of those unwanted calories.

Well done, I believed it and it bought out my views about food 'improvements', I'm very suspicious when scientists start mucking about with food. I remember reading 'Fat is a feminist Issue' by Susie Orbach years ago, about obesity and at the time it was a very popular book.

Obesity is an interesting subject which I suspect has many causes. One of them could be an indicator of a mental health problem, an undiagnosed medical issue, depression, personal unhappiness and so on but one thing always seems to be very viewable when seeing obese people in the flesh is that they eat too much!

I know someone who is very overweight, she had her stomach made smaller by surgery and she lost weight for a while. Now she is as big as before the operation.

The other book I remember reading was 'Dieting makes you fat!', I always thought that this was sound advice. I've never dieted and I'm still about the same weight as I was when I was 20. Human beings are rather odd I think!
