Comfort eating is a deep human need and I'm sure our ancestors in caves or up trees were there tucking into the honey or squidy blackberries to give themselves a lift on a rough day.

Here's something for everyone: Very Happy

Mmmmmmmmmm thank you! I'll have a celebratory bit of comfort eating. Finally got my last application form in for these silly firms. Applied to 8 of the 9 largest firms in the country so hopefully at least one will think I am worthy Razz.

What was wrong with firm number 9 not to deserve you?

Good luck anyway, and if you're going to an interview, don't forget to wipe the chocolate from off the end of your nose Razz

I had never heard of it and when somebody suggested that I applied the time for applications had already passed Razz.

apparently snickers (it'll always be marathon to me!) is the most popular candy bar in the world, with kitkat being the most popular chocolate bar.

why the difference???? i would have thought snickers would be a chocolate bar. and where does mars feature in this? i thought they would have the most popular bar category sown up!

This doesnt do anything for me.
My body seems to crave salty greese lard like pizzas when I'm down.

On the cake side a warm appletart with loads of cream.

Munchie Brunchie is my comfort food of choice while in work.

Chicken flavour instant noodles or Potato waffles and spaghetti hoops when I am at home.

They'd want to be, they're amaaaaazing! Chocolate and wafers, who'd have thought something so simple could be so delicious. TimeOuts too, they're the only kind of Easter eggs I want.

Is anyone else addicted to the Kit-Kat Crunchy Peanut bars? Incredible.

Hot, buttery colcannon made with scallions - not kale and served with cold, flavoursome tomatoes.

Homemade rice pudding and stewed fruit or fruit-rich jam.

My mother's 'hash' - a mush of fried potatoes, fried onions, tuna and loads of parsley.

Real bread pudding with whipped cream.

Hot, thin real egg-custard made with only a little cream.

It's carbs, carbs, carbs.

I've realised that rather than comforting me, chocolate makes me miserable. Except for Minstrels. Minstrels never make me miserable. And Kit Kats I've a conscientious objection to on the grounds that Nesté make them - but I was never mad about them anyway.

I wouldn't know too much of the dynamics of the situation. I just read about a decade ago in the Top 10 of Everything... or something like it... that Kit Kat was by far the most eaten. I don't remember seeing alot of Mars when I was in Africa. Chocolate in Africa sucks by the way.

And in Australia its the same. Cream and chocolate taste horrible there. They use some additive used to prevent them spoiling/ melting in the heat. French chocolate is really nice but eating even a little bit makes me feel sick, that's probably way they are so thin.

The best comfort food in the world is combining very cold milk and a wispa bar in your mouth at the same time and chewing. Try it the cold milk prevents the chocolate from melting in your mouth for ages, great taste and feeling... geek

That is was makes it horrible in Africa too - anti melting agents. Makes everything taste like bad cooking chocolate.

Reading this thread made me make cocoa before I went to bed last night. The trick is to stir the milk and take it off the pan just before it boils, so the milk still tastes sweet.

Irish milk, and particularly milk in Cork, is wonderful.

Very true - getting nice milk is something which always presents a difficulty when abroad for more than a few days.

Not that many lawyers are Masons these days to be honest... mainly because there are not that many Masons. Don't ask how I know how Suspect

I was approached not too long ago to join the Freemasons. They are struggling so much I was almost tempted, just wait til they die off, sell the properties and make myself a fortune Razz. Not tempted enough though.

I would know more than a dozen members anyway. Fathers of friends and the like. Some people use it as an insurance policy because they'll pay for the education of your kids at fee paying schools if you die.

Freemasonry is inconsistent with Catholicism, isn't it johnfás? That's why we set up the parallel organisation of the Knights of Columbanus.

I believe the Freemasons used not to admit Catholics - though I think that was more of a cultural than religious thing. However, I am under the impression that they now recruit from all religions.

That said, Freemasonry is not exactly entirely compatible with any Christian denomination. For example, the Archbishop of Canterbury, a few years ago, blocked the appointment of a bishop who was a Freemason, describing Freemasonry as incompatible with Christian teaching - he eventually withdrew his remark. That said, it does not stop an awful lot of Anglican clergy, particularly in rural parishes, being members. I have a friend whose father is a rural clergyman and almost all of the neighbouring Anglican clergy are members.

In the mid 1980s the Methodist Church in Great Britain stated that Freemasonry competed with Christian belief and asked members of the denomination who were Freemasons to consider their membership of Masonic Lodges. They didn't declare it completely incompatible though.

That's very interesting johnfás. I wasn't as aware of the conflict between Freemasonry and Protestantism as I was between it and Catholicism. It would, however be a bit easier to be Protestant and a Mason than a Catholic and a Mason, wouldn't it?
