@Sir Percy B Yes! That looks like the one (although I was sure it was black wax). I thought it was very tasty. Are you enjoying it?

 

Excellent, so far I have tried;

Black Bomber

Red Storm

Ruby Mist

Bouncing Berry

and the best of all was the Beechwood, the smoked version which was the only one I'd eaten in one go, just couldn't get enough of it.

 

@HH_Sailor are they still stocking a wide range at Familia?

 

Kaufland hasn't got any at present but I'm suspecting that may well change with Easter approaching.

Back in Lidl

 

Grab it whilst you can, might be a while before you see it again.

 

Separately, it emerged that travellers from the UK would no longer be allowed to bring pork pies, bacon sandwiches or cheddar cheese into the EU in the event of a no-deal Brexit. If the UK crashes out of the bloc, individuals will no longer be allowed to bring meat, cheese or any other animal-based food into the EU, although commercial imports will be allowed subject to checks and controls.

Does that mean that all imports will stop? I'm very nervous about my Chiver's Lime and Ginger marmalade.

The restrictions generally just apply to animal products which are imported by private persons.

They are the same as for any products from any non EU country.

Yeah, e.g. Turkey. Passengers bring sometimes suitcases full with food and most of it ends up in the bin (see also TV program "Achtung Kontrolle!").

No, but I would reckon that there would be a period where the commercial imports might take a while.

Means the end of bringing back 20kg in a suitcase though :angry:
