And lo, KitKat did go too far. Not content with their odd and disturbing KitKat Mocha (in the classic four finger style, but with overtones of mint and cold tea) this Chunky version is loaded with two types of caramel.

Our nominal destination wasContinue reading “A Walk Down High Street North, East Ham, E6”
I’ve lived in East Ham since the mid 90s and never really felt the need to do a lifestyle blog. Perhaps I will though. Apparently there are a few springing up now that hipsters and first timers have been forced out of Forest Gate and the Stow and Mile End, even. Perhaps I was justContinue reading “Lifestyle Blogs”
