Was helping a friend with a work marketing project and the age old 'if you were stranded on a dessert island, what 3 items would you want'? Came up.
I had a complete mind blank and came up with three boring things.

What would you want? grin

Spoon, cake knife, and a plate grin

A boat
An engine
A pallet of patrol drums.

grin

Patrol should petrol

TheCrowFromBelow Thu 21-Jul-16 19:18:46

it would depend whether it's an arctic roll or isles flottant grin

I would like a flint thingy to make fire easily, a sturdy oilskin and a knife

A dictionary.

TheCrow and I are on the same wavelength here - I opened this thread with the thought that I haven't had iles flottantes for far too long !!!

LadyMonicaBaddingham Thu 21-Jul-16 19:23:53

Hahaha, Natsku beat me to it!!!

TheCrowFromBelow Thu 21-Jul-16 19:26:37

I love the crispy caramel bits!
I clearly can't spell my french desserts grin which has a certain irony grin

Tuiles Thu 21-Jul-16 19:28:38

Mmmmm Arctic roll...

Optimist1 Thu 21-Jul-16 19:44:02

I knew exactly what you meant, Crow, and am not 100% sure my spelling is correct, which does indeed carry a tiny ironic touch! (You can have my caramel bits - it's the custard/soft meringue combo that I yearn for.)

barkingfly Thu 21-Jul-16 19:47:40

MMMMMMMM dessert. I would take whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and ....

FlowerOfTheWest Thu 21-Jul-16 19:48:53

If I'm on a dessert island, I'm pretty much sorted. No extras required! grin

Haha oops the lack of sleep from 15 week old twins must be getting to me blush

TheCrowFromBelow Thu 21-Jul-16 21:49:59

I like your dessert island better anyway op grin
Hope those wee ones let you get some sleep soon flowers

If I was on a dessert island I would want a banana boat to take me on trips across the toffee river to the banoffee mountain cake

buffalogrumble Thu 21-Jul-16 21:59:47

I would bring some napkins and a doggy bag. Also some snow shoes in case significant land masses were made of trifle and cheesecake.

Doilooklikeatourist Thu 21-Jul-16 22:08:48

Dessert Island
Crime brûlée
Lemon tart
Baked Alaska

Desert island
Radio 4
Black coffee
Cheese on toast

FarsleyLass Thu 21-Jul-16 22:28:17

I would take my family, our local fish and chip shop plus a big chocolate cake.

I cannot believe no one has said tweezers and mirror

JellyBelli Tue 22-Nov-16 01:36:03

Stout boots, a good knife and Ray Mears.

BratFarrarsPony Tue 22-Nov-16 01:42:20

Insulin
Spot cream

ElizaDontlittle Tue 22-Nov-16 01:42:40

A spoon, extra custard, and toffee sauce...

Or maybe, a tent, a Swiss army knife and a seed library.

Bluntness100 Tue 22-Nov-16 01:47:22

What about a mobile phone, a signal and my husband,...?

Or Yacht, Husband, Perfume?
