Food that's been (or is being) taken from meAs Proust identified with his example of 'Petite Madeleines' food is inextricably linked to memory and its evocations and so it was that when I returned to the UK a number of years ago that I noticed (to my mind) Maynard's Wine gums had changed - when I wrote to them about this (yes I know) they completely (to my mind) missed the point and thought the answer was to give me a voucher -well what happened?
And other food that's troubled me is Kellogg's Country Store which disappeared from retailers, I then had some in a Moscow hotel and it briefly returned but has now gone again - where can I get it retail (I know Amazon sell it but it ends up at nearly £10)?
My worry is now that the almost completely synthetic Vesta Beef Risotto has gone (or is going) for good too - I think it was considered exotic when I was a youngster and has been widely sold in £1 and sub £1 stores but now seems to have gone? (they weren't one trick ponies either as Stanley Baxter shows below).
