  • Scotland, Independence and the Tunnock Formula
  • Enough messing about now, it’s time for what hip hop people call ‘Real talk’.

    In the event of Scottish independence, will Tunnock’s Tea Cakes and Caramel Wafers be more expensive? I’m not so bothered about Snow Balls.

    Not only will the be more expensive they won’t taste the same, like “Irish” Guinness…safactinnit

    +1 on the Snowballs thing.

    No, there would have to be a reciprocal tax agreement, or else their entire nation would be bankrupted by a combination of the the Buckfast Tonic Wine export levy regulations 2014 and the Tennents Super (import prohibition) order 2015

    Tennents Super (import prohibition) order 2015

    That would set new records for unpopularity wouldn’t it?!?

    How will the Tennents Super (import prohibition) order 2015 fit with The Protection of Rambling Drunks on Park Benches Act 2016?

    There’d be an amending clause of the Drunken Singing on Early Morning West Coast Trains Commencement Order 2015 and the Shortcake Masquerading as a Biscuit Regulations

    As I split my time between offices in Newcastle and Edinburgh I’m quite looking forward to the opportunity of bringing in some extra cash as cross-border ‘tunnocks runner’. Don’t worry I’ll offer a discount for premier members 😉

    The Caramel Wafers are awful anyway and Ringtons Teacakes are superior to Tunnock’s so not an issue.

    And where do we stand on the “Its Legal Tender Pal” clause?

    Most places accept tunnocks these days

    We’ve only just started getting Tunnocks Wafers round here, you all must vote NO!

    Mind you, if you go independent and come over the border to look for a job, Big Bad Dave will stop you getting any benefits for 3 months….

    Tennents Super. The most ironically named beverage (this gag is not suitable for the grammar bitches).

    You all know nothing. Caramel logs are supreme above all other tunnocky type snacks.

    Athgray+1 Also Tunnocks should get on to the EU for Protected Geographical Indicstor Status because if it’s not Tunnocks it’s not a teacake!

    I genuinely have a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer addiction. Think I must be responsible for over 4 million of the 5 million bars sold every week. They must put MSG in them or something. I currently have 8-bar multipacks in my drawer at work and the cupboard at home. Thank god for cycling as I would be massive otherwise.

    Hadn’t considered the effects of Scottish independence on availability of Tunnocks products in Englandshire. Hope it wouldn’t end up with the Scots keeping all their A1 premium quality Tunnocks for themselves, while we only get the Friday afternoon end of shift rejects south of the border (bit like the French and their wine). Scotland can keep the Tennants Super, I want the Tunnocks Super. or is that Tunnocks Supper?

    I always thought it’d be disgusting but one night we got a slab as it was cheap, and you know what? I can’t remember anything about it. Taste test passed!

    Has anyone ever suggested that tunnocks confectionary was legal tender?

    However perhaps that could solve the independent currency question AND be the next bitcoins at the same time…

    No there’s a long history of disputes over Tunnocks products poly. Logists on one side , teacakerati on the other, and wafer munchers sittin on the fence. Now as Max Boyce nearly said. ‘Loggy!Loggy! Loggy! …’
