    They were always Frosties since I was a kid (a while ago now!)

    We USED to call "Snickers" bars "Marathons" but changed it many years ago.

    I cant think of anything, i work in a supermarket and still know little about which foods/drinks originate where....i do know that we call oreos oreos and m & ms are the same and pepsi etc etc.....i think its probably really due to the fact that kellogg's frosted flakes just doesnt have the impact over here....already other brands called frosted flakes and the advertising using 'frosty the tiger' makes the term frosties more co-ordinated with the marketing of the product.....you gotta love frosty the tiger jumping around having amassed his energy suping up on his daily frosted flakes lol

    Danone Actimel vs. Dannon Activia (yogurt).
    Hellmans/Best Food mayo (this may have changed now to Hellmans in the US too)
    Wall's Ice Cream in the UK is Good Humor in the US. Same logo - similar products (both Unilever)

    Yeeesss, but not the kind of meatballs you'd have with spaghetti. It's a traditional english dish made from pork and various other bits of pig.

    Faggot recipe

    Faggot Preparation Time: 50 Minutes
    Faggot Cooking Time:
    2 Hours

    People tend to love or hate faggots, but these beauties, freshly made in faggot gravy bare little resemblance to their distant cousins, which you may have seen in the deep freeze at your local supermarket.


    Ingredients: Serves 4
    1 pigs liver - diced
    1 pigs heart - diced
    6 rashers streaky bacon - cut into strips
    250g pork belly - diced
    2 medium sized onions - peeled and sliced
    1 egg
    100g breadcrumbs
    2 tsp of finely chopped fresh sage
    Salt and pepper to taste

    A large knob of butter


    :lmao::haha:
