Are you going to eat them then? Or put them to some other use?

Crumpet threads always remind me of the aborted West End farce entitled Get Your Hands Off My Crumpet which was set in a crumpet factory.  It was mentioned with great enthusiasm by On The Buses's Bob Grant on the Wogan 'reunion' so is obviously a little tragic in hindsight.  The 70s phwooar use of crumpet was jaded even in 1990.

Anyway, get your hands off my bakery items.

I normally have two, both buttered, one with marmite, one with marmalade.

Sorry but if you're not eating three in one sitting you are a pathetic worm

Hark at old Johnny Three-Crumpets.

Forgot to get butter for them so they've gone straight into the bin I'm afraid.

English breakfast muffins are infinitely better than crumpets...slathered in cheddar and ham, grilled with splashed hendos relish.

That's because you're eating holes. It's like taking two steps forward and three back. Eating three is getting the upper hand on your hunger. Basic science.

Crumpets are not sufficiently hearty for breakfast. However they are excellent for elevenses or a mid afternoon snack, with a cup of tea.

Exactly. If I do have them from breakfast, I'll have some fruit as well to bulk out the meal. Eating half a pack just to get through the morning is just silly.

Eating half a pack just to feel something.

Yeah crumps are some good toasted fellows.
I like them double toasted and crunchy,but I saw an older boy microwave them once.But that was in the '80s when microwaving was taking the country by storm.
Problem is when you forget about an opened pack and rediscover them all mouldy somewhere.Then I throw them out to the birds to recycle except that they leave the packaging all over the place.
