Thursday Thirteen (We've Caught 22!) - Name Brand Products!


This week's Thursday Thirteen, I pander to the lowest common denominator... yes, I really try for giggles based on silly, silly things... granted, no harm in a little fun...

Sue and I, a while back, picked up a whacky book entitled "Shelf Life" by Rosie Walford, Paul West, and Paula Benson.

The book is photos of ACTUAL products you can find around the world on shelves... and I'd like to share with you, thanks to this book...

My Thirteen Favourite Brand-Name Products from Around The World least, according to the book "Shelf Life" which missed the British delicacy known as Mr. Brain's Faggots... but these one's are still interesting...


#13: What every man craves a little...

Boo Bee Juice from Thailand.


#12: Why is this fish covered in white powder?

Cocagne Mackerel Fillets from Portugal


#11: Cocagne not good enough? Try some Krack!

How funny! I have no idea how you managed to find all of those foods - unbelievable! I wonder if they are popular in their countries.

Happy TT

Hey Peneloep Anne... Danke!

Hello Nicholas... Well, I hear tell that it DOES work! Boil water, pour boiling water in a cup, place bag of Hardon Tea in the cup and in a few minutes, IT WORKS! One cup of Orange Pekoe!

...that's what you wondered, right?
