Crumbles originated in Britain during the 2nd World War. As there was strict rationing the ingredients needed to create the bases of a normal pie weren’t available. Pie’s would require too much flour, sugar and fat to make the pastry. So people got creative and made a simple mixture of flour, margarine and sugar and used this to make the top of the crumble. The dish is also popular due to its simplicity.

And FYI - Some parts of America also have crumble however they call it CRISP.


Did you know that?

Funny, the thing shown as a crumble is what I would think of as a crumble. I would try to picture something different for a crisp and tend to think of it as a British term.

You'd think a great big corporation like that would know how to spell its product, especially if that word is in its name.

There's a lot of reproduction stuff about, but the real ones seem to fetch above £10. I'd have thought more but there you go.

How about a cow pie?

(Another post that might be better in the disgusting thread, but work-safe.)

I know the tag says United States, but those guys sure sounded British to me....

Obviously forgot the mandatory 10-step back-off after ignition. Safety office hears of it, they'll pull his pryo ticket.....

Stupid git.....

At least he didn't win a Darwin Award for that video......
