saying that tomato sauce is an excellent brass cleaner but I'd still dip my chips in it (not after it's been on the brass of course)

Picalilli is a kind of relish of chopped up vegetables and spices.

The website says it's a work in progress, so the stuff might not actually be available yet. Some of it might be drinkable if I hadn't given up soda, but they sound too sweet, except for the bacon flavor (which is just not right). Sort of like classic UK soft drinks of the 1970s... :whistle: I had some when I was there in 1979.

Piccalilli is an Abomination Unto Nuggan.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I like a nice pickle.

So do I, but I detest Piccalilli.

I seem to remember Top Gear showing a bacon scented car air freshener. :?

Never heard of these before and now I have to go poke my mind's eye out. :o I might be tempted to try the coffee flavor but the rest just leave me nauseous. Image

Bacos sound revolting as well, if you want to put bacon on your salad why not put bacon on it rather than an entirely chemical product :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Well, obviously that's a joke. Buffalos don't have wings.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!
