After having not blogged in far too long, I have been trying random foods and drinks all over the place. This was so long ago, it was when I was revising… and now I’ve finished my final University exams for UCL. Just Goldsmiths left… I find out my UCL results at the end of July for my Dissertation subject.
This was a revision trip to Costa, hence the laptop, and I found they had recently introduced Pink Lemonade to their every varying menu. I would love to say it was refreshing and had real flavour but it lacked both aspects. The strawberry bits were just annoying and the drink was watered down so much I could barely taste it, I love my Pink Lemonade with a real kick and it lacked all excitement. It wasn’t the drink from my youth sadly.
Secondly, the night before my friend’s wedding, ya know, the one I went on about… which went really well and was one of the best events I’ve ever been to. Green Ranger turned out to be a fabulous dancer and we had wine and danced till the early hours. Anyway, the night before whilst straightening my hair, I had my favourite Belgium beer, Fruli. It was everything I had remembered from my trip to a Belgium bar with my two good friends in London. I may have been slightly tipsy afterwards… but it tasted delicious.
This was my coffee from Shakeaway, an ordered misplaced or misheard but either way it was the worst coffee I have ever had. But as part of my lunch from Boots with Green Ranger, I had a Mixed Berry Trek Bar. It had the strangest texture, it tasted like the fruit bars that you can get in lunchbox aisles at supermarkets, it was tough but soft at the same time. The only thing I could compare it to is a tougher Nutri Grain Elevenses bar. It tasted delicious thought, it tasted healthy and filling. The berries were sweet enough to carry the bar itself and I would definitely eat another.
Lastly, the night after mine and Green Ranger’s flat-warming, which was fantastic and very, very alcoholic – we had a Frankie and Benny’s Breakfast. I’d wanted one for a while and GR was hungry so we went for it. I had the Amazing Pancakes which consisted of three american pancakes, three rashers of bacon and syrup. I wanted to see if the flavours did actually go – sadly, they didn’t but the pancakes were delicious, fluffy and sweet. I also ordered hash browns on the side, that were, honestly, perfect – not oily but very tasty. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. To top it all off, it was only a fiver and we got unlimited tea! I also tried Black Pudding and it was totally different to what I imagined – soft and tasted like stuffing, oddly. I always imagined it to be hard and burnt but it was nothing of the sort. I don’t think I’d have it again though, just knowing what it is.
Buy anyway, nom nom.
