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. 😊

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. 😉

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 – 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 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!

    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 Bourbon biscuits are my absolute favourites, and I’m pretty sure my blood has now been replaced by tea, so I guess that makes me quite British?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!

    • Kim says:

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

    • Kim says:

      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!

    • Kim says:

      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 don’t even get me started on Yorkshire puddings (the best part of any roast but I constantly have to explain them).

    • Kim says:

      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?
