My Mum was rather well know (to put it mildly) for being tight, cheap um, thrifty, yes thrifty. Not given to extravagance, to be precise. But every once in a while, maybe three times a year, she’d buy a packet of Butterscotch Krimpets to share. She didn’t have much use for “store-bought” stuff of any kind, and these little cakes, utterly devoid of any redeeming value, were a real divergence from her usual path. There were three in a packet, and she, my sister, and I would each get one piece.

I was in the grocery store yesterday afternoon and saw a display of Krimpets, and decided to buy some for myself. I ate all three of them, and they were just a delicious as I remember. Maybe they tasted so good because I buy them almost as often as Mum did.

    What a delightful treat for yourself! It is so true that we often not buy selves treats. But now and then, we must pamper selves but ensuring it does not harm our health. I am now wondering what Krimpets taste like LOL!

      The cake itself is sweet and soft, and the frosting is butterscotch, which I probably like even more than chocolate.
