Still, spotting said ‘spelt popples’ in a local tofu emporium, I thought: “What the hell, can’t be all that bad?”
I should add I have fond childhood memories of sugar puffs, and was only allowed to eat them when I went to visit my grandparents up north (usually while watching kids TV classic Wackaday (another forbidden pleasure.)
The honey monster has nothing to fear from his vegan competitors.
Spelt popples are utterly bland, without a doubt more like styrofoam than anything else I’ve ever tasted.

Couldn’t be easier really – so long as you’ve got a mixer. Which I don’t. (Gasp!) Unwilling to wip out the pestle and mortar for the moment, looks like it’s back to hummus bros for me, at least for the moment.
“If I was a wild animal, I’d start eating this now. But I’m not like your momma.”
Did you know that current Celebrity Big Brother contestant (and hence current London resident) Coolio is the star of his own web TV cooking show?
You’ll probably live to wish you didn’t.

He quickly comes to regret letting possibly the most obnoxious child in New York to guest on his web TV show, as he offers up a nifty, easy to make chicken recipe. He also finds a ‘foreign object’ planted in his food (almost certainly not suitable for work…)
I think this has the makings of a great web TV format (seriously)… And who else but Coolio could get away with having ‘Sauce Girls’?
Easy to make, healthy and quick recipes for Londoners starved of time
