Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Living in the Mess I sometime like the odd bit of Crumpet.....don't we all!
    Now Sunblest were the original makers of the Crumpet but now there are what I call imposters!
    Twice now I've digressed from Sunblest to such fakes as Warburtons (taste like it was made in a School Chemistry lab!) and now Tesco's which may advertise they are "extra thick" but I think this extra mass is taken up with mulched paper!
    This is a short lived rant as I've now been caught out twice with these horrible imposters and will only now go for Sunblest.......silly CH for trying to buy cheap!!!

  8. I like mine with jam. And I don't think sunblest are the best......aldi do a nice crumpet.
    Additionally, as a veteran crumpet scoffer, a little advice on how they are cooked......grill, do not think you can get away with chucking them in the toaster. They should be toasted under a very hot grill taking care not to dry them out.
    off to put some on for breaky
     
  9. You utter, utter bastards. Now I have to go out to the supermarket and get some crumpets.

  10. Warburtons do need a little longer toasting time to get them just right. Excellent with Scrambled eggs on for breakfast. NOTICE NO BEANS THOUGH. However crumpets with beans for tea mmm mmm.
     
  11. We can't buy crumpets ready-made here, so make them ourselves. Delicious with gruyere butter and spread with Patum Pepperium (Gentleman's Relish).
     
  12. A liberal spread of Crab pâté on for me.
     
  13. There are some seriously odd people here

    Crumpets should only be served with butter!
