Spinneys in AD only have the aerated ones, which are like inflated, slightly-gone-off, pork-free prawn crackers. I want the ones which will crack your teeth.

The mark of a truly good pork scratching is that it makes your head vibrate as you chew on it.

Spinneys in AD now have (or had before and I hadn't noticed) the proper Mr Porky ones. Now all I need is a proper pint of bitter to go with them.

You can't get Marmite XO or Marmite cheddar in the UAE. Or proper vanilla extract.

You probably can't find real vanilla extract due to it being made with alcohol.
