I was about to say that's totally barking, and profitable... but I see what you mean about greed being the best stupifier.

That Gatorade thing is almost life imitating art - echoes of the drink 'Brawndo' in the film 'Idiocracy'.

The most terrifying thing about that is the 264 steps to get to the top! With my knees, it would take me a week to climb up there.

There's a set of steps in Falmouth with eleventy one steps. Ten or more years ago I was up and down that every day - now I avoid it like the plague!

Definitely nope. Not even without the ominous latin chanting.

Actual rye bread that I get sometimes at a health food shop.

I am still at a loss as to what the connection is between rye bread and the picture on the wrapper?

Obviously, the lad's name is, 'Nickel'. Bit rude, though.

Her: You smell like you have been baking for twenty hours!
Him: I can't believe you are just £1.39! Shocked

What a rip off. Great stuff with some really mature cheese, like strong cheddar, though.

Do you know somewhere in the North of England where I can buy it cheaper?

Admittedly I am boycotting most of the supermarkets these days and accept paying a bit over the odds in independently owned health food shops now and again just so that they have a better chance of staying open and continuing to supply me with stuff I can't get in the supermarket anyway.

Sorry, no. Unless, what about the local Lidl, Aldi, or some of those Polish produce shops that have opened around the place?

They sell it here as, roggebrood. The Fries stuff is particularly dark and sticky. You can get it in just about any supermarket or bakers. Prices vary considerably, depending on whether it's the mass produced stuff, baker's made, organic & etc.
