To think two oranges after dinner is too much sugar

They are pretty large navel oranges, two of them (whole not juiced) is probably half your daily sugar allowance so probably not a good idea to eat two after a evening dinner?

For whom exactly, yourself, a five year old, whom?

There are much worse things to be eating.

Are they Terry’s?

Can't see the problem personally. Now if had said 2 magnums ......

What - you begrudge someone eating two oranges? hmm

Are you for real?

We had raw cookie dough after our dinner, that was probably too much sugar grin.

Bloody hell, you wouldn’t want to see the amount of Toblerone I’ve just eaten after my dinner grin

My three year old ate two Go Aheads after tea today. She tricked us. She asked me for one, scarfed it then asked her dad for one and pretended it was her first.

I wish she’d eat two oranges.

What was for dinner op?

Erm ... No. They're oranges. They're fruit, they're good for you, part of your 5 a day and all that jazz. Ok they have sugar in them but sugar isn't the devil and it's better to have it in orange form than ben and jerrys form. Some people, like me when I'm eating healthy, 'need' something sweet after a meal and try to supress that need with yogurt/fruit. Having 2 oranges after dinner is perfectly normal, and healthy

Is this a joke? I hope so, because otherwise this is sad as fuck.

My favourite dessert is to melt a bar of chocolate, golden syrup and a lump of butter...mix in cornflakes. Eat with a spoon.

I had 1 Orange earlier. I now can't sleep.

Don't worry about the sugar in whole fruit - the obesity epidemic in this country is definitely not caused by people eating too much fruit grin

You sound deranged.

KC225 Wed 18-Apr-18 23:07:16

I'm guessing you ain't Nigella then?

Oranges are not the only fruit OP 🍊

Fluffyunicorns Wed 18-Apr-18 23:09:00

I got 2 oranges in Poundland yesterday - a chocolate orange for a pound - bargain! Didn’t have them both after dinner though - I had one before smile

Bluntness100 Wed 18-Apr-18 23:09:06

Who ate the oranges then?

What a bizzare thread. It's got that horrible under current of suspected controlling behaviour...

formerbabe - sounds like my knid of pudding that.
OP - you are bonkers.
