The worst thing i've eaten this week!

I have just eaten something so horrid I felt I had to air my disgust to the world! Well Jamie has been making great strides improving School dinners but what about us office workers? The quality of food available for ones lunch around my office is lacking to say the least!

The worst thing I have eaten this week is an Ainsley's pork pie. it absolutely beggared belief, cold damp grey soggy pastry (like it had been sat in a bowl of water) tasteless and old looking. Has anyone eaten a worse pie (apart from frey bentos of course).

We should start a campaign to ban crap food, never mind crap dinners! Now I'm not a snob (clearly by my fondness for pies!) however a pie that bad just shouldn't be allowed!  mad

Manufacturers only make food that we buy.  If we stopped buying it, their profits would fall so that line would be discontinued.

Therefore, the ball is in everyone's court...

I have lovely food when I'm at work, but then I bring in food from home: I know exactly what's in it that way!  Probably cheaper too

It's still a strange phenomenon though that school and work cafeterias don't feed students / employees well although it would increase their efficiency and mood if they'ld be fed well wink
I do the same thing as Mrs Gibba therefor and either take my food or eat when I get home (although the food at uni is subsidized while I pay full price for my own  whistle  )

Mrs Gibba,

That's the answer, clearly people don't buy their porkpies and that's why this one had been hanging around for some considerable time longer than it should've been!

They continue the line because people will always buy pork pies with a basic expectation of what one should be like, even a basic one. I doubt anyone makes the same mistake twice, but in the centre of town there will always be enough passing trade to keep flogging them.

It's not just that it was a bit naff - it was absolutely rank - no one should have to suffer such an abomination of a food item (I don't want to call it a pie again as it is not deserving of the name). All of their food is basic and bland  but you know what you are getting and it fills a hole if you want something basic and cheap in a rush (not everyone has time to make their own food at home everyday).

Anyway this post was kind of meant tongue in cheek to find out what the worst food everyone else has eaten all week and to generally have a good old rant about it!

Talking of processed rubbish - I've just eaten a packet of tooty frooties and they were fantastic!

(I can see you are all building a picture of the health freak that I am - I do eat real food as well - honest)

Re: The worst thing i've eaten this week!

the week isn't quite half over yet but nothing really stands out ..  Maybe the piece of taleggio i didn't realize was overripe til i bit into it and got that nasty ammonia taste. puke  . I was  a bit dissapointed about having to throw it away.  evil Taleggio is top  contender for my favourite cheese these days.  big_smile
