The other day I was wandering home from work and found myself hankering for the delicious taste of clinkers. I pondered that, due to me missing out on this year’s Tasmanian wolf expedition, it would be another year before I could dine on those delectable little brown pellets.
It should be noted here the clinkers are an Australian confectionary made by Cadbury. They consist of chocolate pellets covering a core of fruit flavoured honeycomb. I noted that in Australia there was a far, far greater choice of chocolates than in the UK. There were a number of exotic, fruit based chocolates. Over here if it’s not a Mars Bar it gets rejected.
Clinkers brought much hilarity to the English members of the last expedition. The Aussies had no idea what clinkers meant in the UK.
Upon reaching home I found a package waiting for me. Sent by the lovely Rebecca Lang it consisted of not one, not two but three packets of clinkers along with a Tasmanian wolf key-ring and a Tasmanian wolf postcard saying ‘We missed you’. How wonderful is that. Thanks Becks xxx.
