Reminisce with Schoko-Spritz
Once we used to eat at the Ritz
But now we lunch on Schoko-Spritz
And not because they’re cheaper,
Rather that the flavour’s so much deeper.
They recall for us the tastes of youth,
Melting and intense on the tooth.
For Terry it’s the chocolate teacake
That makes his hard heart ache.
Simon loved Liquorice Allsorts
And still can’t keep them from his thoughts.
Despite the coffin shape of the box
He liked them more than any chocs.
Crunchy, finger wafers were Lee’s choice,
As for Lady Penelope, a sweet, pink Rolls Royce.
Powdered raspberry milkshake,
Garibaldi biscuits, Cadbury’s Flake,
Huge blocks of sugary honeycomb
Were the delights that Martin brought home.
As for Peter, he would not like to lose
Candy shrimps, broken crisps and fruit salad chews.
For Jamie, it’s sherbet in rice paper furled,
Flying saucers that taste out of this world.
Nonetheless, the shortcakes that we ate today
Do compare with the flavours of yesterday.
So if you want a biscuit that sits
Well on the palate, try these Schoko-Spritz.
