What Is It With Jaffa Cakes?

November 2, 2008

Now I can’t be the only person with this problem… Have you noticed how a box of Jaffa Cakes can literally VANISH?

You must know what I mean.. You open the box, undo the wrapper and take out your first one and nibble away at it.. Sound familiar?

Well, there you are, quite happily munching away and you go to get another one.. ONLY TO FIND THE PACKET IS EMPTY!!!! You’re sitting there, staring at the box thinking “Where the heck did that lot go? I can’t possibly have eaten them all!! Not that quick!!”

But.. you did! You ate a whole box of Jaffa Cakes in about 5 minutes flat!

If you are anything like me you instantly go into a state of denial, and start blaming everyone from your OH to the cat for eating them, while protesting that you had nothing to do with the dissappearance of the Jaffa Cakes.. But no one will admit to anything and you eventually realise that you must have eaten said Jaffa Cakes and thats probably why you now have a tummy ache!

I’ve noticed there is a phone number on the side of the box for people, its the helpline for Jaffaholics Anonymous. I’ve considered ringing it at times, not because I have a Jaffa Cake problem (see, still in denial!) but I’m curious as to what or who is at the other end of the phone line, but I have never rung it, I daren’t in case someone at the other end starts laughing at me!! I wonder if anyone has actually phoned them?
