The British Tag

I found The British Tag over on Laura’s blog Merkitty and thought I’d share my answers with you. I love tag style posts – I think they can be a great way to get to know the blogger better.

You can read Laura’s answers here.

The British Tag

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day?

I can’t remember the last time I had a cup of tea at home but I will have one with my breakfast if we’re eating out. I prefer fruity teas with a spoonful of honey in them instead of sugar or sweetener.

2. Favourite part of your roast?

Yorkshire puddings or gravy or roast potatoes. I love crunch roast potatoes.

3. Favourite dunking biscuit?

I usually dunk Bourbon biscuits as some brands have ones with no milk or dairy products in them. ๐Ÿ˜Š

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?

Having a spot of tea or a crumpet.

5. Favourite British word?

I use spiffing and gutted quite a lot, so I’ll say those.

6. Cockney rhyming slang?

I’m going to go down the apples and pears to use the dog and bone. ๐Ÿ˜‰

7. Favourite sweet?

Haribo, but they’re a German brand lol. Umm… British… Fizzers, Love Hearts or those double lolly pops that taste like Fizzers.

8. If you owned a pub, what would your pub be called?

Off the top of my head – the Prancing Pony, like the one in the Lord of the Rings

9. Favourite male and female British celebrity?

Sir David Attenborough and Hayley Attwell

10. Favourite British shop / restaurant?

Is Waterstones British? If so, Waterstones.

11. What British song pops into your head?

Bohemian Rhapsody โ€“ Queen.

12. Marmite?

I love Marmite! On toast, in sandwiches, mixed in with pasta (recipe here) or cheese twists (dairy free, of course). It’s delicious

    This is such a fun tag! Yorkshire puddings are my fave too, especially with lots of gravy! Bohemian Rhapsody is a tuneee! I love the name of your pub, Sir David Attenborough is fantastic and now I’m craving a crumpet. He he, awesome post Kim! <3 xx

      Thanks Bexa! I loved doing this one, it was a bit different and full of British humour. x

    Thanks for the heads up!! I’ll edit it now. Doh!
    I love spiffing or spiffy, they’re great words.

    Thanks for doing this!

    I love your answers (but just to let you know.. on number 5 my answer is still below yours!)

    I’ve never really heard anyone say spiffing before, so that’s a pretty interesting one!

      I love it! Let me know if you do it(?).

    What a fun tag! You had so many great answers. Bourbon biscuits are my absolute favourites, and I’m pretty sure my blood has now been replaced by tea, so I guess that makes me quite British? David Attenborough is a legend, too!

      He really is! A nature programme not narrated by him is just wrong. Haha, tea blood, definitely sounds British to me. ๐Ÿ˜…

    This is another really cool tag post, I love your answers. Totally with you on Marmite, it’s a staple in our household – Marmite soldiers and a boiled egg is the breakfast of dreams! Really enjoyed reading this, thank you, Kim ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

      Yes, another Marmite lover! So far everyone that’s commented is a fan. Marmite soldiers are a must! Thanks for your comment. x

    I love this. I recently did my first tag (on Harry Potter), & could easily become addicted to them. In fact, I think I might have to do this one too…

      Let me know if you as I’d love to read your answers. I’m going to have to check out (and more than likely do) the Harry Potter tag!

    I love this tag. I agree with you about marmite, I’m obsessed.

      November 27, 2018 at 17:47

      Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed. Marmite is delicious!

    I am not British, but I love marmite!
    Must have spent too much time with my British family ๐Ÿ™‚

      Marmite is the perfect breakfast food (in toast) or sandwich filler. I’m happy to hear you love it too! It’s an acquired taste.

    As a Brit who now lives in Canada this really made my day. The things I miss the most from home are all food related. I miss crumpets. The ones here are terrible and flat. Having a nature show not narrated by David Attenborough is a crime, and donโ€™t even get me started on Yorkshire puddings (the best part of any roast but I constantly have to explain them).

    1. Kim

      November 27, 2018 at 17:45

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! I love crumpets too, I missed them when I went on holiday to the US this year but I did get Lucky Charms. Haha, I guess you don’t get yorkies in Canada?

    The tag is hilarious! I fully agree with you regarding Sir David Attenborough . I’m chuffed about him too. :))

      Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜ He’s definitely my favourite.

    I loved reading this! I’ve seen this tag a couple of times but I wish there were more of them. I’m all about the roast potatoes x

      Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜Š Roast potatoes are delicious, especially crispy ones! x

    This was cool to read! I’m not British and I didn’t quite understand a few things you wrote or what the question was asking LOL but I could answer the first one for myself – at least one or two cups a day! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Haha, it is very British! Lol. I had a lot of fun answering it.
