As I did the weekly food shop this afternoon I came across some Tunnocks Teacakes [tunnock.co.uk] on the shelf and found myself unable to resist their allure. I have very fond memories of these chocolate and marshmallow creations from my childhood and they??re just as delicious as I remember. The box celebrates the fact that they??re still a family run firm, established in 1890, and this prompted me to look them up online. It seems they started in Scotland by a Thomas Tunnock and the company is run today by his grandson. The other ??useless fact of the day?? that I learnt was that they now export their products to thirty countries and the biggest importer of Tunnocks products is Saudi Arabia ?? I wasn??t expecting that at all! If this has whetted your appetite to visit Tunnocks apparently you can go on a factory tour but there??s a year long waiting list to do so……
