Well the one thing rowies are missing is sugar and a bit more fat so yeah, go for it!
I'm wanting a Rowie with butter and golden syrup right now but can't be bothered to trek down to the bakers.
Asda's just along the road! Them and chocolate cookies are the only things I go to that shop for
I got a bargain last night. 8 4 packs for 3p each! Sorted
I'm beginning to yearn for a rowie now!
That's what you get for going to foreign places
I am well rowied-up now!
How do you pronounce this. Row rhyming with crow. Orrnow? Got to be a winter thing I think but I would try one. sound a bit like scotch pancakes. Which come to think of it I haven't eaten for years.
Row - as in argument and ies - as in tellies
Biddlybee dunno if you ever looked but this is the rowie thread
I'm still not sure I've tried them
Oh you should, you really really should!!
*I want some now!*
I don't live in Scotland.
I really thought you had received at least one on my various visits. I know wiskey and spangles did, but that's all I can remember
I saw a cajun-spiced rowie in the baker not long ago. Flavour of the week!
Rowie Ice Cream anyone...?
Mackie's creates Buttery and Jam ice cream for Aberdeen music festival - Evening Express
Not sure about rowie ice cream tbh And Mackie's are yoons so I don't buy their products.
For the Union - ie anti-independence.
I can remember back to the time when Mackie's made a fairly principled stand against the Tories by going out of their way to offer jobs to people remaindered by cutbacks - at the same pay grades and similar conditions.
Whatever his politics (Old-style Liberal) and uber-worthy status, old Sir Maitland was IME a rare, genuinely good man who did a lot for this part of the world and its people. I worked quite a bit with him in his last years (he was also on our board) and saw at first hand how hard he went at it - well above and beyond virtually all the other members and with none of the elitism/standoffishness of most. Its a lot more complex than them just being Yoons. In most other ways, their corporate values are just about in the right place!
Made a new discovery recently:
Micro-Rowies - and very moreish they are too!
The new artisan baker at Crathie nr Balmoral has started producing these beauties:
Look at the thickness of that..!
And it seems you can get them from the honesty box outside her house too. I think I'll be stopping whenever I pass by now.
I'm tempted to go to Crathie now
She has a drop-off/outlet in Banchory and maybe Stony soon.
They are worth it - Even third-day, heatup under the grill and its a delicious crispy outside but still soft and fluffy inside - Lovely
Told us she uses 50/50 butter/Lard in her recipe and they are nae too salty either.
Banchory is just over the hill
