Brixham and Butterfingers







Sod the diet!  It's three days away from weigh in so I reckon that I can get away with it!  I popped into the Co-op for  eggs and a rather wonderful loaf of their mature cheddar and jalapeno bread  to go with some homemade soup.   How I managed to end up in the sweetie section I don't know.  Whilst there I came over all of a quiver with excitement.  No, I hadn't spotted one of those new, lurid pink, ruby chocolate Kitkats that are coming our way.  How different from the '70s Pink Panther bars are they going to be? 

What whetted my appetite and supplemented my salad-y lunch was a Butterfinger.  Yay!   I got a taste for these when walking the Appalachian trail twenty years ago.  They're unlike any confectionery bar that's hitherto been available in the UK.  Of course there's chocolate.  That goes without saying but inside there are shards of peanut buttery sugary stuff.  I'm sure it pretty darn healthy.  Not!  But never mind that.  With nostalgic gusto I wolfed the lot.


So maybe it was guilt that caused me to stroll out yesterday evening.    Burn baby burn those calories!  Actually it wasn't anything of the sort.  It was just too gorgeous  to stay indoors.  So I headed out and walked the Breakwater.   When you live somewhere quite this beautiful these longer spring evenings are too good to waste.

  1. Lucky you having a nice spring evening to walk in.....it has been misty and damp here for what seems like the last week!! I bought some solar powered light jars for the garden nearly a week ago, and not yet had any sun to make it worth while putting them out to charge up!

    1. I will probably give them a try. Seeing that I have a teenager a lot of chocolate seems to find its way into the house. xx

  3. My daughter vaguely remembers Pink Panther bars only because she was never allowed sweets like that because of her allergies. I love Brixham harbour but I’ll need to seek your opinion nearer tha time about where we can park the motorhome. It’s based on a Renault Master long wheel based van so not a giant like Knaus. Happy weekend.

    1. There used to be a spot where motorhomes parked for free just down the road but it got ridiculous and so the council have now banned it. I'll have a think for you. The site at Stoke Fleming is lovely and a lovely walk away into Dartmouth. xx

  4. I can do without sweet things but I do have a bit of a problem if I buy salty snacks & I gobble them up greedily, so I just don't buy them often.I have put on almost a stone in weight over the last few years & I'm not comfortable with it x

  5. I have to admit that I ate one of those when I saw it on sale at my local Tesco but I have been strong since then... xx
