MissSantaClaus's mention of gingerbread in August reminds me of the seasonal goodies sold by ALDI and LIDL. To my english taste they seem very good. Though it's difficult to read the tiny english description among the multi-lingual packaging it is reassuring that the same products are sold throughout europe and are hence edible and eaten by discriminating europeans rather than being the ersatz food that we poor put upon and exploited brits get foisted upon us.

Roll on October! I wonder what will be new this year and what spicy and tasty treats I can try again...
