Thinking back the school dinners that were served at my infant school during the early '70s were terrible. There was no choice and we had to finish up what we were given, watched over by stern dinner ladies. I wasn't a fussy eater but I'd regularly miss my entire lunch break because I refused to eat what was on my plate. Puddings, funnily enough were the worst. I've written a post before about my food dislikes. Semolina and prunes have to be my least favourite meal of all times. But 'fizzy custard' came a close second. I'm trying to get to the bottom of what the hell it was.
I've ruled out tapioca and sago. They're too distinctive looking. This stuff was yellow and it was served with a travesty of a shortbread And yes, it had an unpleasant fizziness. Does anyone know what it might be?
