Anyone for Seconds?

The Laverstone Manor Halloween Ball was open to all residents of Laverstone who could prove they lived within a four mile radius of the manor (this being a distance determined by Lord Robert Waters (1724-1 769) as the furthest he was willing to ride to collect Demesne taxes). A good time was had by the majority (those who managed to remain sober) but very occasionally a gatecrasher would blag his way inside. Such undesirables were treated with every courtesy due a genuine guest with one exception: the ice-cream they were offered was produced in the Manor Dairy. Only the privileged were aware the Manor didn't have a dairy.

Devious the Imp was always pleased to offer his Chunky Monkey.

OMG. I will NEVER eat Chunky Monkey now and am so pleased I hadn't got round to it before reading this post.

I think B&J claim it to be 'chocolate'

I had to ask what it is - duh!

Probably not going to eat it anyway - who knows if it's safe for me.

I doubt it's suitable for celeriacs, Ams, sorry!
