Okay, 'splain for the blonde Yank, please?

What's the connection between Ritz crackers and Christmas? http://www.wench.org/forums/images/smilies/oogle.gif
(They are yummy, but I enjoy 'em year round, LOL...) http://www.wench.org/forums/images/smilies/scratchchin.gif

Dunno why but us Brits usually just buy them at Christmas time as a treat. We sell them all year round though but we only remember to buy them at Christmas. Don't ask me why lol... Dawn?

:point: You're kidding right? We buy them all year as a basic cracker and buy other ones during the holidays!! BTW Josh, I like the snow flake ones too but couldn't find them last year here!!

:lol: josh , I like the snowflake ones too . We also have football shaped ones . :unsure: think around the playoffs & Super Bowl .
That is a very good deal .
I like to eat them with cream cheese during a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup .
Do they have the pretzel flips made by the Keebler Elves ... Townhouse crackers . Pretzel on one side and like ritz on the opposite . Oh My Goodness, they are sooo good . I could sit and eat a box . :lol:

You guys have to clarify your food items here for us yanks, what the heck is a shushy cream and a twiglet? :unsure:

I can't answer about the slushy cream but a twiglet is like a pretzel flavored with marmite. I'm not a fan of marmite but Wendy and Chris turned me on to the twiglets and I like them.

If you were really posh back in the day there was nothing better than a plate of Ritz crackers with a perfect swirl of Primula cheese on top. Very la-de-da.

For stuffing Christmas tins; I melt milk chocolate and put a few drops of peppermint oil, mix together and then dip Ritz crackers in it....yummy! My friends and family like those so much that I can't keep them around the house.
