Bella88 Sun 13-Jan-13 19:10:18

Even the chocolate ones? They're rank!

YANBU - only one or two bites to each one.

Mind you...I DO have a very high tolerance for sugar.

I could eat three boxes and still not feel sick if I was in the right mood.

I dont though. Mores the pity.

would it make you feel sick to know that my sister and I always called them, poo, bum and wee cakes.

Geekster Sun 13-Jan-13 19:17:39

No still don't feel sick.

Is it not standard to eat a whole box


HoHoHoNoYouDont Sun 13-Jan-13 19:18:27

Yum! I can usually eat an entire box in one sitting too!

If it is Mr Kipling ones YABU as they are horrible. M&S Fondant Fancies are far nicer!

hermioneweasley Sun 13-Jan-13 19:21:12

Betty's are the best. I couldn't eat more than one but they are gorgeous!

I loved the special blue, red and white ones they had for the Jubilee grin

AwkwardSquad Sun 13-Jan-13 19:23:42

Mmmmmmmmmm Bettys fondant fancies... drool. hermione, that was cruel.

are there any yellow ones left?

MrsMelons Sun 13-Jan-13 19:25:03

ooh I love French Fancies. Our local newsagent does their own brand ones for 50p - they taste exactly the same.

I like it when they do the special edition ones - especially the pink ones.

Not sure I could manage the french fancies, but could easily demolish a box of bakewell tarts, assuming you mean the 6 boxes?
In fact thats what I had for breakfast after DS2 arrived. Tho I did manage to offer the paramedics one each. The declined (it was about 8am!). Not done it since tho.

Bloody lov em yanbu

But. I have to eat the chocolate ones first then alternative the lemon and strawberry. I try very very hard not to eat a whole box but usually do and so dont buy them.

Betty's ones are amazing but can only eat one.

worsestershiresauce Sun 13-Jan-13 19:29:33

You can't eat a whole box, that would be disgusting. One yes, two at a pinch, more than that is greedy. How could you even want to eat a whole box?

PrincessOfChina Sun 13-Jan-13 19:30:40

YANBU for eating them.

YABU for making me think about them while I'm on a diet.

usualsuspect Sun 13-Jan-13 19:32:49

It's quite easy to want to eat a whole box really.

I'm envy at the 50p fake French fancies.

ScarletLady02 Sun 13-Jan-13 19:33:22

Once when I was about 19 and a relaxed, hippy student, I ate a whole pack of Golden Syrup cake bars (10 of them).


Geekster Sun 13-Jan-13 20:08:22

Where do you get the Betty's ones from? Don't usually eat a whole box, I don't usually buy cakes for this reason. Yes I did eat the chocolate ones first. I like the yellow ones best. I start the diet again once we have moved house.

nextphase Sun 13-Jan-13 20:25:02

Order them online at £££, or come and visit us 'tup North and visit a shop.
To be fair, I couldn't eat 6 of hers. Mr Kipling makes them much smaller and less rich!

Primadonnagirl Sun 13-Jan-13 20:29:04

Ooh I didn't know Betty's did them and I was in Harrogate yesterday so could have stocked up..will have to find a reason to go again soon...can I get any for anybody else whilst I'm there?
