A&R Scott's Porage Oats
As Stephen Fry said " It had to be Scott's Porage Oats" for breakfast. Facing a cold day outside the porringer is bubbling away on the Aga with the spurtle to the ready as the Scott's Porage is prepared.
But wait, on the back of the Scott's OLD FASHIONED Porage packet there is a recipe for Flapjacks: Oats, Marge, Demerara, Golden Syrup and a pinch of Ginger, BUT it is only in Grammes. I haven't bought or sold anything in grammes since my College days, I'm not starting to now, not on the advice of the so called Scott's OLD FASHIONED Porage.
Time for a quick email. But no website, no email, maybe Scott's OLD FASHIONED Porage really are OLD FASHIONED! But lurking at the bottom is a customer service number in Leicester. In bloody England, what the hell are A&R Scott of Cupar, Fife, KY15 4PD doing letting the bloody Sassanachs get involved with their Old Fashioned milling of oats?
Leicester = pointy eared footballer = crisps = Quaker foods = Pepsico.
It seems A&R Scott of Cupar, Fife, KY15 4PD are just part of the bloody Pepsi Cola empire not some honest smiling bunch of Jocks. I yield to no one in my admiration of the benefits that American Multinationals bring, but if the stinking Yankees come over here buying up our heritage they can at least leave our customary weights and measures alone - it is not as though they use them themselves!
