As a child a Tunnocks Teacake was a Very Special Treat.  The wondrously gaudy wrapper.  Milk chocolate encasing stickily sweet marshmallow atop a crunchy biscuit base.

Good times.

To. Die. For!

Obviously there is no elegant way to eat this and you end up looking like a 4 year old with chocolate and meringue all over your hands and face.

But who cares!
