The real thing?


The time had come to do a bit of dousing of the Xmas cake with brandy (for a chemist's slant on this, see my Chemist's Kitchen blog.).

Now, I was not keen on using any of my cognac so I bought a regular sort of brandy to do the deed.

What puzzles me is the need to make AUTHENTIC the largest word on the label.

I would have given BRANDY a bit more prominence.

Proclaiming their virtues so loudly just makes me suspicious.


  1. yep, it would worry me, too. So... did it taste ok?

  2. was it? Did anybody die yet?

  3. Don't know. Just dolloped it on the cake and wrapped the cake up again to 'mature' until Xmas.

  4. It was certainly interesting for me to read this blog. Thanks for it. I like such topics and anything connected to them. I would like to read more soon.

  5. Lots of products tend to claim that they're authentic or real! I always giggle and imagine the opposite.. I mean, do they really think we think they're fakes?

  6. At least they didn't claim it was NATURAL!

  7. I guess there must be so many fake French brandies - Canadian, perhaps?
