You can usually get Cremora from the International Section at Countdown.  Cremora is my treat in coffee and I can always get it.

No worries.  You can make that Cremora Tart now.  I love it too!!  That and peppermint crisp tart was always favourite birthday treats with our family.   Yum-Yum!!

We get Rooibos and Honeybush in our local New World.  Baie Lekker !!!    I love it that my Kiwi friends have "Red Bush " in their homes and offer it to me.

I just love the internet.
"We" sometimes "forget" that we're actually "out there" and it's then that you'll get a joke like this.
I am sure you will not ask the same question in your lounge with a bunch of "males" in the conversation...  ::) ... :2funny:  :2funny:  :2funny:
Enjoy,  :2funny: , SAKB

Yeah that can be a problem. Saffers come here and think 15 isn't hot because we're used to 25+ and you cannot get a sunburn in the mid teens and then when it's too late we ask what the hell happened...  ???
They don't say "slip, slop slap and rap" for nothing...  ::)
