There now follows a short advertisement for something I was sent in the post by a friendly PR.
She wrote to me and said "Can I send you some chocolate orange macaroons?"
And I said, as I always say to anyone who wants to send me things (this doesn't happen very often) "I can't guarantee you any coverage in a newspaper and so I'd feel bad, so maybe don't bother."
And she said "Oh GO ON for God's sake stop being such a square and have some goddamn macaroons."
(She didn't really say that but she heavily implied it.)
And so I said "Oh, okay then." I wasn't very hopeful. My husband got sent a curry in the post the other day and it was disastrous. Genuinely evening-ruiningly horrible.
But then the next day I received in the post some of Mrs Crimble's wheat and gluten free chocolate and orange macaroons. And I've pretty much eaten them all, quite pleased that I'm sent a better quality of freebie than my husband. So if you're looking for something wheat or gluten free this Christmas, I recommend them to you. I don't know where you buy them, though. Probably Waitrose.
