that's down to the EU too. They have a law about a maximum amount of rusk allowed in dog food. When that came in, the white stuff went. Bloody outrage if you ask me

You can't get one for under a score in most places.

Isn't it because dogs don't have much calcium in their diet any more, because they're not fed on scraps?

Soreen dont come close to the old stuff, very perfumey taste, probably loads of chemicals in it
the old stuff had a nice sweet dough bread, lovely tasting currants and raisins
Soreen is like a heavy stodgy dough and the fruit is the equivalent of long life milk, does the job but don't compare to fresh

They sell all kinds of fruit breads in the supermarkets, and in some bakeries.

Plus teacakes are better anyway.

Oh yes, I was in the pub with my late dad and I bought one in the toy shop next door and put it on the table that my dad and all his mates were playing cards.

When it went off one bloke knocked all the drinks with the fright he got and I got a bollicking :D
