Uncle Toby and the shit of the 'bull !

Watching the video below, I felt all warm and nostalgic. I could feel the heat from the flickering wood burning stove. The autumnal sunlight filtering through the ancient mullioned windows, I could smell the  exotic spices and orange peel. I could see, good old Uncle Toby working away in his quaint and old fashioned kitchen, helped by his little elfins, hand crafting the little cheerio’s, because they love children, and like to put a smile on their little faces. What comfort and joy.

The reality of course, is this high starch/sugar, failed science experiment, is churned out 24/7 in a  place that looks more akin to a petro chem. plant than a nice warm and cosy kitchen. Marketing men eh, they would sell depleted uranium toys to kids if there was any mileage in it. The lovely and healthful looking Clare Turnbull tells us “not much sugar” tell them about the starch content Clare, tell them what starch is, go on Clare be a devil.


Starch or amylum is a carbohydrate consisting of a large number of glucose units joined by glycosidic bonds. Wiki
