I drink too much coffee in the day but like Yorkshire Tea so should get back involved with that.

Don't drink caffeine after about 7pm but like a Horlicks every now and then. Got to make it with 100% milk though.


Is it still Horlicks if it is 100% milk?

I actually looked at Horlicks in the supermarket yesterday, haven't had any for many years.

Used to love the chewy bits.


Is it Horlicks if it isn't 100% milk and that's got to be whole milk not this semi stuff, even better straight from the cows udder yum

we all seem to be looking after ourselves, and I do drink my Yerba tradicional and get odd looks but then I'd rather that than the migraines/panic attacks.

Hot Vimto!

Can't understand the obsession with tea - my father-in-law drinks gallons of the stuff. And one of our friends brings her own kettle and tea bags on the skiing trip every year - "just in case!"

Coffee
And none of yer nescafe pish neither :x

Beans, roasted black, ground and made into 8 espressos. This tar like substance is then combined together in one large (prewarmed) mug along with a healthy portion of double cream and a heaped teaspoon or two of molasses sugar and a measure of home made vanilla syrup made from Madagascan vanilla pods .
EVERY MORNING :D


Sometimes i even have a 2nd mug.

Tea, milk 2 sugars mm. I couldnt do without, though i wouldn't rate 5 or 6 mugs a day as excessive. Coffee i can take or leave though it's hilarious how badly addicted one of the missus American friends it to hers!

coffee coffee coffee. instant espresso moka or caffetierre and im there. i NEED 2 cups befroe even thinking of dealing with customers, yet can quite happily have a mug of filter and sleep like a baba 1/2 an hour later. i like it nice and strong and usually white without of black with one depending on my mood.

on the opposite side to that, i assisted in hospitalising a mate with my coffee and he doesnt touch the stuff now.
