Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 17/09/97

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

Whatever happened to Wagon Wheels?

When I was a young 'un, the school social was a bit of a thrice-yearly highlight. I'd go into a room full of people who normally wouldn't deign to talk to me, fling myself around to records like 'Moscow' and 'I Was Made For Loving You', and then pop outside to the canteen for some oral refreshment. One of the regular features of these pre-adolescent binges was the Wagon Wheel. So when I encountered one recently at a cafeteria where I was lunching, I just had to try one.

Bad mistake. Wagon Wheels have evolved since my troubled childhood, and not in a good way. For one thing, they're a heck of a lot smaller (and no, it's not just because I've got bigger). For another, despite claiming to be a "choc coated marshmallow and jam snack", jam is pitifully thin on the ground.
