Does anyone remember Virol? You know the stuff...thick, sticky and sweet given to you on a spoon when you were a kid? I used to love it. Mum gave it to me on a daily basis after I had my tonsils out at the age of 5 and became very thin. Well I came across this photo on the internet

Yuk! It has taken me 60 years to realise that it contained bone marrow! From which animal, I ask you? It could well have set me off on a lifetime of weight watching. I don't like eating meat or meat products now, did it set me off down the path to vegetarianism? I blame the Government of the day for all the hype which convinced my mother to buy it! I feel traumatised......
Dear reader, you do realise that this is tongue in cheek don' t you....:-)
Thanks for popping in x
