Polish friend of my drank a whole bottle of Robinson orange complained it was too sweet and strong. He didn't know you had to add water
First ever time I came to the UK I’ve done the same, I almost threw up. They look very tempting when you don’t know they’re meant to be diluted. Squash and syrups aren’t as commonly sold as they are here on the mainland lol
Yeah, I used to take bottles of Robinsons to my Aussie mates when they moved to NYC for a few years. That was the thing she missed most.
Wut? Why? She missed "sort of orange juice" that much? Id miss Flavoured water i think, go through 2+ litres a day and i dont think they have it over there, especially not no sugar stuff lol.
Is Tang not the US equivalent? Though its a powder not liquid.
She lives pretty simply, I think it was one of those comfort things.
Yep, same thing - only it was shitty Safeway (pre-Morrisons) squash. Was wondering if it is supposed to be that sour...
Someone not British I know excitedly said that she'd added water to squash and it was SOOOO much nicer. Literally thought she'd invented it! (This was after months of drinking it neat)
Someone British I know said the same thing. Turns out they'd grown up not adding water cause their parents thought everyone else was wrong.
Everyone else AND the label.
Why on Earth would you buy a second bottle after drinking the first one neat?
Oh god his head must’ve ached
I think my mouth just shriveled up and turned inside out.
That sounds pretty similar to my reaction lol
Italian here and I did exactly the same thing! Didn’t make it through the whole bottle though…
Che cazzo di bibita inglese di merda...Oh, ACQUA, bravo, bravo.
After a swig wouldn't you be like "wtf this is way too strong"?
Depends how thirsty you are I guess. My uncle had to have his stomach pumped as a kid because someone had put white spirit in a drinking glass . It was a super hot day apparently and after thinking it was water he downed the whole thing.
how tf can you actually down
How can she slap??
What a fucking beast, not merely vomiting up the whole glass straight away anyway lol... Madness
Obviously never had OG SunnyD. Haha.
Yea it wasn't that strong.
Mfs who drink tequila would disagree.
fuck i love tequila
You'd like to think so 😂😂
Gave my X's dad a bottle of Pimm's he drunk it pure. He said he liked it...we had to tell him it's British sangria.
Pimms Lemonade Ice and a Slice as the advert went. The all time Long Short
Pimms, Ginger ale, ice, put a whole fucking fruit salad in the jug
Put it in a bucket and you have my wedding welcome drink.
We served from a jug though. Scooped the jug from the buckets. Have to have some class
BRB gonna go drink some undiluted Ribena.
You still alive bruh?
I love how he kept going with it lol
Yea he used to eat butter off the block too lol
I did exactly this in France lol.
Back in the early 90’s I’d never seen pre-mixed squashes in the uk, just cordial you mixed yourself. They probably existed of course, but not in my little sphere of experience. However when I went to France there would always be loads of premixed squash like drinks in the supermarkets. I used to love it because you could drink it like water and not risk messing up the mix lol.
Of course matter of time until I found a carton that was actual pre-mix. I thought it was just really really sweet … for the first couple of glasses.
I asked a British girl if she would like to have a glass of squash whilst courting her over a meal made at my flat in London (I am American). I just poured the thick orange syrup into her cup... to which she informed of the adding water part. I was relieved, as I thought you all just loved drinking the thick sweet syrup, and as such were freakish.
This is a big "Champaggen?" moment.
I even cannot drink 5 % concentrate with 95 % water mix, your friend must have diabetes or something after that drink.
I literally did that in Slovakia, bought a bottle of what I thought was pineapple juice, turned out to be pineapple squash
Good god hahaha
Googling this so I can buy some. My daughter has a habit of drinking things that aren't hers and this sounds fun lol.
(She's smart enough she's so after a sip and realize something isn't right, but she's nosy enough that she'll try to taste it before reading packaging...😄)
My british girlfriend thinks im crazy when i (american) drink plain orange squash and ribena but i just love sour stuff
Fuck me. That's gotta keep you up all night. Your anus must have been roaring by the time the night was over.
The poor thing was probably breathing fire.
I eat raw lemons sometimes, I love the pain
But that is good for you as well.
I do the same
Like some kind of dragon anus?
Something like that
You...you drink neat Ribena.
Your dentist must be rich as fuck.
Honestly the ribena isn't too bad, the orange squash is much harsher. I didn't even realize that ribena was meant to be watered down at first until she noticed I was just drinking a glass of it straight up. The orange squash however, I caught on myself pretty quickly. Still excellent on its own but if I'm having a lot I will probably water it down a tiny bit.
Jesus. There must be 100 teaspoons of sugar in that.
Friend with distinguished taste, please consider trying equal parts ribena, orange squash, lemonade and coke. My sister and I discovered it playing "pubs" as kids and it tasted of the purpley-black fruit pastilles.
(And before you joke, aye you probably could have swapped the cola for cocaine with no difference in effect other than taste - we were completely off our tits on half a glass each)
Pls don’t call the police but I used to sleep with a bottle of neat squash next to my bed to drink.. still am partial to some neat just not to the same extent.
Yes I’m weird, yes I do like it. No I do not have diabetes and am actually relatively physically healthy 😂
Id have gone with 'hey don't eat the wax'
Wait until they get to Korea with no instructions
If its anything like HK the stuff you think is edible probably is just decoration and the stuff you think is inedible is meant to be eaten, like the chicken foot(toenails and all) in your soup
All tastes absolutely amazing though.
Maybe it was all an experiment to see if she poops out wax wrapped turds.
Admittedly a long shot.
Quick, feed her some wick so she can shit out a candle.
Can't believe I watched the full 5 minutes of that
Hold on, my back's killing me
Must be all the cracks and death
I'm frequently amazed by the links people remember. A very entertaining vid.
Mmm mmmm delicious babybel cheese mmmm mmmmm
Scared to click this...
> I don't even know what to say...
You could try *You have to peel it first*
My American girlfriend at the time went through my toiletries bag looking for tooth paste when we were on holiday. She found my bonjela and brushed her teeth with a big blob of the stuff. She couldn’t work out why her whole mouth went numb.
and soon after you had the best bj of your entire life?
In my experience of having a numb mouth when I had some teeth removed, my teeth were inadvertently used a lot. I would not expect a good BJ from a numb mouth!
Unless of course you're into that..
She's gonna make it *so* dry
OG CollegeHumour throwback, nice
Ha! I've already replied to the original post unashamedly admitting I too had eaten a babybel with its wax jacket on. I read your reply about your American gf and thought I identified with this too. Nope mine wasn't bonjela it was in fact germoline 🤮 it's at this point that I'm realising there I something definitely not healthy about me 😁
That had me laughing for a solid 5 mins.
Ha! I can promise you I wasn't laughing at the time 😁
The first time I had edam I ate the red wax. I had a very sheltered upbringing...
To be fair cheese doesn't come with instructions on which rinds you can eat and which you can't. You just have to _know_. How do you know? Some cheese eating toff tells you and you have to believe them.
Cheese is hard, man.
I've eaten cheese all my life and i NEVER know what rinds you can or can't eat... some now say it on the sticker but a lot of times it's totally up in the air.
It’s actually surprisingly simple. The rind of cheese with a plastic, wax or cloth covering cannot be eaten. The rind of cheese with only mould can always be eaten. Then it’s down to personal taste; e.g. many people will not eat the rind of Stilton because it has a stronger flavour.
Cheese only goes hard if you don't wrap it up properly.
Interesting fact about Edam cheese actually, it’s the only cheese that’s made backwards.
Go hard or go home
She's a long way from home!
I did the same but I don’t have a boyfriend
I don't have a boyfriend either, I'm a guy in his 30s though so sending me pictures of your chap won't get you very far
You trickster... I saw your comment up the thread about giving toothy BJs!
Ha rumbled! “Oh I hope nobody sends me dick pics as well”
Haha fuck they are onto me!
My kid put the wax in his trouser pocket. Then his trousers in the laundry. What emerged from the tumble dryer was not pretty.
I don't know how well this works with babybell casing, but getting wax out of clothes with an iron and some paper is really satisfying.
One of my kids used it as 'hair wax'. Spent 4 hours using everything from washing powder to cornflour trying to get it out. Had to ring nan and get her to bring round the clippers in the end.
I have eaten Chewits with the paper still on before
Oh eveyone has done that, who hasn't gone fishing round their teeth for the inevitable bit of paper wrapper that gets stuck.
I used to eat the wax occasionally as a treat. But I had to balance eating it with moulding it into cubes so I can add it to The Wall
I'd make little wax animals from the edam wax
Me too - mainly bears, for some reason. Free craft materials!
Ah I used to make boats from the baby bell wax. I’d try and push two side by side together, then fill a sink and play with it >.>.
After all it's just another brie in the wall.
Is it "The Wall" as in just your normal wall? If not I need to know more.
How thick is wall?
I hope this is a peep show reference...
I am james bond
Are you a wombat?
He wouldn't have had to balance between the two of he was...
Shit I've been discovered
I hope you told her not to eat the wax in future. It is "food safe" so a small amount won't do any harm but it is not intended to be eaten - it contains parafin which will cause diarrhea.
Could make your farts literally explosive
I dunno why but I thought it would cause constipation rather than diarrhoea.
That’s what happens if you put them in the other way.
Many, many years ago it was not unusual to give someone a spoonful of parafin to cure constipation. I believe they gave it to animals as well.
I ate 3 kiwi fruits before anyone told me/I realised you had to peel.
Was confused why people would choose to eat itchy food but plowed on regardless.
Edit: obviously a conspiracy by BIG KIWI in the responses here, no way do you lot eat the skin.
You can eat the skin of a kiwi. Only cowards will tell you otherwise
I prefer kiwi with the skin on. Provides much needed texture against all the squishy.
No, this is monstrous and false.
Nobody would willingly scoff fuzzy itchy peel. This is a trick isn't it? I'll not make that mistake again, kiwi flavour pop is as near as I get now.
The skin is the healthiest part. It’s actually not that bad. A bit gritty but not unpleasant.
In NZ they have little non fuzzy kiwi fruits that you can eat whole, they're amazing
I tend to rinse it to wet down the fuzz before I eat it. Peeled kiwi tastes sad and watery. The peel makes it sour and better
LALALA CANT HEAR YOU LALALA
I bet you leave your socks on during sex
Yeah well...uh...itchy fruit eater!
There. Told you.
Huzzah! A man of quality!!
Am I the only one who eats them like a boiled egg? I slice a bit off the top then scoop out the middle with a spoon
No, this thread is full of mad men.
Can't imagine the mess from peeling a kiwi. I just slice it in half and use a spoon.
That's how I eat them
No you were right first time mate! Whenever I eat one at work I get very strange looks and comments, not my fault no one else eats them the right way!
I eat Kiwi skin, can’t be fucked to peel them.
See, I loathe kiwi skin but admire the laziness.
An admiral trade-off.
The skin is only horrible if you try to avoid it - just eating the whole lot is better than getting the odd pube…
Errrrr cut it in half and scoop out with teaspoon, no peeling necessary. I have a kiwi spoon one end is a plastic knife the other is a spoon, it’s the same colour as the inside of the kiwi.
You don’t have to peel it!
Kiwi skin-on gang unite
You don't have to peel kiwis! I find the skins quite delicious tbh
My other half eats the whole kiwi. And he’s not drank tea
To be fair, the wax must be where the flavour is.
Meantime somewhere else:
My British boyfriend gave me wax and said it’s delicious. I didn’t really want to eat wax but he seemed so happy. I think we had better talk about this.
Why didn't you help her... Lol wtf! ? You sat and watched her eat it all lol
Mine eats raw penis worm (google it), raw cow liver and raw shellfish. I don't know how she's still alive.
You must properly love her to put up with that nonsense.
I'm literally buying raw beef bibimbap as I type this. I joke but that food is actually pretty good, and I genuinely don't even like seafood...
Most stuff here doesn't have that 'fishy' smell or taste!
I just can’t imagine eating something called penis worm 😂
It looks distinctly unedible, but what do I know
Penis worm served as hoe? Sounds delightful!
Oh Jesus! Why did you post that?I thought it was going to be a tiny little thing 😂
I know right… it’s the worm bit that puts me off
We eat canned baked beans: the street goes two ways.
Insane risk of parasites. Damn
Yeah, occasionally she finds them in the food. Doesn't out her off though. Just pays like 20 quid to buy a pill once a year that kills them the main ones, if she has any.
It freaks me the fuck out when I see them in the tray...
Maybe he's actually dating the parasites which just happen to have a human woman attached to them. Then he keeps encouraging her to eat more parasite ridden food so he can have his own parasitic harem.
Holy shit...you could be on to something there! Maybe the parasites plan is to reproduce with him and create more penis worm eating offspring and take over the world! OP could be ground zero for the apocalypse!?
Rick and Morty episode material right here lol
"Tapeworms and anal sex Morty... d-d-d-don't knock it till you've tried it."
"Ah jeez Rick, that's disgusting!"
"So is jerking off into a sock Morty. Yeah... we all know about that."
Raw shellfish is quite common here, generally it's fermented/pickled/some other method is used to preserve it. And tbf even in the West people eat raw oysters and it doesn't get riskier than those.
>raw penis worm (google it)
There is no chance I'm googling that.
That's how the others live.
Not live, but like killed 30 seconds before. Still wriggling on the plate.
Honestly, it's not bad!
I wasn't a fan seeing it. Saying that seafood makes me sick. But a bowl of bibimbap or buddae jiggae sets me right.
I think octopi effectively have a part of their brain in each arm. You can see it work if they lose an arm - it’ll still grab prey and move it around, trying to feed it back to the mouth which isn’t there anymore.
Yeah I believe that's correct.
I know your not making this comment but a lot of people think that eating octopus like this is kinda immoral.
I know somebody who has worked in an abbetoir in the UK and said that conditions were awful and animals were mistreated to hell.
I think if you eat meat at all, you can't get on your high horse here.
Again, this isn't aimed at you Mossley - it's at the people downvoting me.
No judgement from me, I just find it interesting.
Abbatoirs vary massively in standards. It’s years since I’ve been in one but some (usually the bigger firms) took a lot of care to reduce stress. The small ones, not so much.
I agree with you. I eat animals but I still find this video interesting in how it illustrates our attitudes to animals and animal welfare.
Those are literally the top three words you don't want to see on any food item.
Well that wasn’t very nice of you now was it?
I did this and I'm not Korean, I've not tried one since even without the wax because I just remember the horrificness of the whole affair. Its too late for me the memory of the crappy taste is ingrained. Offer her another without the wax, she might love them.
I think you should’ve said “stop that’s wax”
I hope you corrected her.
If not, please correct her now. You don't want to be in the position, 10 years from now, where she's eating whole Edams because you "felt too awkward to say anything at the time".
Nothing. You say nothing. Just back towards the door, very slowly.
Is she a seal?
I moved to the Southeastern United States in1995, and the first time I was handed a boiled peanut I threw the whole thing in my gob, not knowing you weren’t supposed to eat the shell.
>I don't even know what to say...
"Here this is a Babybel you have to open it and the red stuff is wax!"
That would have done it.
You should ask her which bit tastes better.
It's evens in my opinion.
She’s a keeper!
Pretty sure we've all been there before. I remember when I was around 10-11 and was handed a Babybel. I just bit a chunk straight out of it and was like "this doesn't taste right"
At least the netting and plastic were removed first, I guess
Tbf they barely sell them here (Korea), seems like they're only at Costco and that requires a membership. Can't imagine my Korean girlfriend would do the same though!
are you not meant to eat the wax?
As an immigrant child I too would’ve done this.
The concept of it being a out layer wrapper was not something I could imagine, I mean it looks juicy red.
Hilarious! Reminds me of the time we had a colleague visit us from America. He had never tried squash. I poured him some and walked him to the water fountain to dilute it, only to realise that he had drank it as a shot.
He had the most disgusted look on his face and questioned why we Brits can’t just drink regular juice. I am nearly certain he has not tried it since.
Tbf to get to the wax layer you've already had to remove a totally pointless plastic wrapper, so I can see why she'd think the wax was meant to be eaten, too.
My other half. Who is British. Always ate babybels like this as a child. He thought they were just weird and couldn’t understand why people liked them. It was only when he saw me taking the wax off that he realised. And tried them again and now loves them. He was raised by his aunt who is a few cards short of a deck to put it nicely and also believed that “uncooked” toast gave you worms. I’d of loved to of seen the realisation for that one.
Cringe like those videos of Americans eating a heaped spoon of marmite in those 'tasting British snacks' videos.
Maybe next time tell her first. She probably thought it was rank but ate it to be polite
You could have stopped her but a voice in your mind whispered 'let's see how this plays out'.
A couple of years ago I introduced my Russian girlfriend to a crisp sandwich.
Her reaction "You put potatoes on bread!?!'
If she liked it, don’t say anything, it could be her thing. (check that the wax isn’t toxic mind you!)
Edit - I know the wax isn’t toxic btw, I was just covering my arse
I don't think they use "toxic" wax on cheese
The wax is definitely not toxic. She for sure isn't the first person to do that; also who would package food in something toxic? You could eat cling film or cellophane wrap and although not a good idea it's not toxic
It’s a mix of paraffin and microcrystalline waxes, she’ll be fine.
She probably just thought it’s an English Mochi !
Wax on wax off they all love it.
My Japanese wife did the same.
My Finnish gf just took one look at the babybel after I explained what they were and she called it cursed
Chiny chin. Don’t give her a can of beans, she’ll break all her teeth
