Flapjacks are made by basically taking porridge oats and mixing them with syrup and a few other things like butter then cooking. They come out as mainly oats but kinda stickly stuck together, so they're all gooey and chewy. although sometimes they come out a lot drier and i guess those are healthier. you can add nuts, chocolate, toppings. and make them with lots of different types of oats. very yummy!

I've only seen them in Canada! They also have orange KitKats and Strawberry KitKats. The strawberry ones are gross, but the orange and banana are awesome.

My friend in Japan sent me a Fruit Parfait Kit Kat for my birthday. I still have it and sometimes look at it in wonder. I may try to eat it before it gets hard and moldy.

I don't think that anyone prefers the thin woman. IMO, she not only looks grotesque for self-inflicted reasons, but clearly has a debilitating outlook when it comes to appearance. She comes across as unhealthy in both mind and body.

I wouldn't choose that much exposed rib cage or a slightly sagging, flat behind, no. But if I were forced to choose either body type and face/hair, I'd choose the more slender build. Ideal would be her current weight on a shorter woman (about 7 inches shorter), or her height + about 20-30 lbs. Think Salma Hayek or Bridget Moynihan, pre-pregnancy. That would be ideal.

Will you send me a few? Please? :P
Gladly H!! But trust me, you are so better off not trying them. But, if you must, they sell them at Cost Plus, if you have that near you? They are not as previously pictured in this post, the only way I have seen them here (or in Europre, for that matter) is in a roll packet. I am too lame-o to figure out how to post an image or I would find one for you.

I wouldn't choose either as an ideal body type, but if I HAD to choose one over the other I'd choose the smaller woman. So I guess I do prefer her to the larger woman, but I'm not crazy about either.

If I had to be either, I'd probably choose the smaller woman too, but only because it's easier for me to gain weight than to lose it.

The thin girl has this weird thing going on. Above her hips she looks really 'smooth' and skeletal which is unattractive. But below her hips she looks 'flabby'not meanin fat but really really untoned with nothing there but the fat her body is trying to hang onto which is just sagging off her. Her legs are almost blue?! The larger woman does lok better in that respect as even if she's carrying a bit extra it looks more natural and voluptuous rather than saggy and flabby.

There is a big difference between the English and American calories. Us brits use KCAL(s) and you guys use KJ(s).

This explains it better than I can!

Not likely. There's a big difference between Cost Plus and Costco....




I'd rather look like the heavier woman if a mid-range, healthy weight weren't an option. I looked more like the smaller woman growing up, except my legs were bony, too. I was unable to put on weight, and because of that was constantly lethargic and sick. It was horrible. The heavier woman at that weight is probably doing her body a lot of harm, but it's long-term harm, and since she's on the weight loss path she's doing what she can to help her health. The skinny woman, though, is in constant danger should she get more sick then the constant "off' she's probably feeling.

cost plus is also known as world market.. they have a website.. www.worldmarket.com

publix carries digestives down here.. maybe your local grocery store has them and you don't know because you've never looked for them
