Message 1365427 - Posted: 7 May 2013, 13:56:25 UTC - in response to Message 1365401.

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.

Silly pair of sods, they would be worth money on Ebay today.

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.....

Yup...I luv the brits and their rather unique sense of humor. Or should I say humour.

Monty Python, The Two Ronnies, the Pink Panther bits.
So many I can't bring them to mind right now.

This.
And The blackberry bit.
And of course, So cheeky...Monty.

OR, perhaps a younger Hugh Lorri doing [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNoS2BU6bbQ] This bit.....
