I was even more frustrated by the fact that some idiot put a table and chairs in front of the chocolate counter, perfectly obscuring the view of both product and information when a pair of equally unobservant customers deposited themselves upon it.
We weren't offered cake or chocolates with our drinks, which I was surprised by - you're missing vital sales there! Whilst friendly, the staff weren't exactly at their most attentive...
The sweets themselves were passable, but nothing to really get excited about, and certainly not justifiable to the price at £3.60 per 100g when Thorntons is only £2.99 for a 100g bag of Continentals. Needless to say, I was both underwhelmed and unimpressed; it looked great, until you look closer - a bit like this garage.
Dinner at Mum's more than made up for it though. Muhmummah's enchiladas were grand. I mean that in all senses of the word; sensationally tasty and BIG. Apparently the trick is to steam all the contents - the mushrooms in a covered pan with a wee touch of proper butter for flavour, and the chicken in lemon and lime juice with fresh ground pepper. They were rockawesomely good.
