Soreen First

Hi all,

Whilst in Waitrose yesterday doing the usual tour, first up the bbq aisle to get the stuff you need, then up and down every other aisle in the shop picking up additional unplanned and non-required bits, from the corner of my eye something called out .. I looked closer and recognised it from this Forum .. yes Soreen.

Malted fruit bread? .. anyway, if it's good enough for the Forum then I needed it, so it's now on the shelf at home. I saw a thread saying it must be taken with butter, and don't want to kick off a repeat debate, but my query is (without getting overly tech) is it best for a pre-train snack, or a post workout treat .. or either

    Soreen is disgusting!

    I dont think it serves any particular purpose though to answer the question...

    I have just eaten three slices with butter. I tend to use it after training, about 30mins after the recovery drink. I can never stomach eating after 8/9pm at night so I just like a small snack and soreen fits right donwn to tee....

    With or without butter, depends on how I'm feeling. I also eat it pre, during and post workout / race. Never fails.

    If you dig out my Weymouth 70.3 report you'll see that I deployed a medium-range chunk of Soreen after about 1 hour on the bike. Of course, my average speed went up by over 10kmh, I became instantly more likeable and well-respected, my fellow competitors slowed down to let me pass and I was chased across the finish line by a gaggle of tri-ladies.

    I may have made some of that up.

    *Note to self. Soreen is so incredibly sticky that wrapping it in tinfoil then sticking it in your back pocket for an hour makes it impossible to unwrap.

    Soreen is for before, during and afterwards. With or without butter/marg/lard.

    excellent, which parts did you make up ?

    Thanks all .. I shall enter the Soreen world from tonight .. i feel faster already.

    I hope its nothing like the 'malt extract' i was made to eat a spoonful of as a child ..

    I love the stuff

    As for when before or after I cant understand what you mean? O know it seems an easy question but soreen should be beaten all the time

    and TEA
    Maybe even a small slice before bed.

    As Britspin he is the king of soreen!

    I was in the supermarket the other day and they had a buy one get one free offer on Soreen...not only that - the loaves were already 50% extra free...I laughed with maniacal glee and took the whole shelf full... I wonder why I can't lose weight?

    Do what I do, tell her it's the same amount of calories as the weightwatchers one (it's actually pretty close, go figure!) that means she can have it as part of her diet... assuming she's on one, which most of the women I know are.

    (I'm now ducking in case that's a sweeping sexist statement..)
