Ever notice how the folk who say stuff like 'I wouldn't mind if he was funny' etc are some of the most boring uninteresting posters on the site? I have. To be fair it's usually the veterans who've been here for a decade and spend their weekends in emart sifting through cartons of milk to find the one with the expiry date 24 hours after the row of cartons on the front of the shelf. Hope dem homemade muffins taste good though, shit, anyone know where I can find a renforced plutonium 4.73" x 4.7256789" baking tray from?  :rolleyes: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

They actually put the ones with the nearest expiration date in the front, and the ones that have a later expiration date in the back. I thought that is pretty much how all stores stocked shelves, being here or back home. I have never done it, but would imagine that most do it that way.

At home they stock it like that too.
While I usually take from the front, there is a diary based product I buy here that has a short use-by time, so I'll take from the back to get that extra day or 2 of the use-by day; Only because it takes me about 3 hours and 15 minutes to go to the supermarket, and back home, from where I am. So, it's not something I can go buy easily if I run out during the week. :p However, if there was a supermarket here that stocked the product, I'd just take it from the front and buy more when I run out. :P

+1 - If there is a deal going on, usually with yogurt, tofu, or milk, then I will check the dates and get one that will give me a few extra days.

Muffins are awesome!
And if you ever do find a plutonium baking tray of any size at all, please let me know, because I'm pretty sure I could find a use for it:afro:

Holy moley, pickle indeed. My ex used to have to complain about giving his mom salary presents for certain things, and that was for his own mother! And usually not over a grand. I can't even imagine if he had to pay that much to my mom.

The sprinkles I need I can only find on gmarket have "fee on delivery" and I'm too chicken to buy them and figure out how to pay said fee.

I've only seen the cylindrical type sprinkles at Homeplus, and I think most fairy bread use the round pellet type?

I haven't checked in a while. Has Homeplus started selling more than just the ice cream sprinkles?

That's pretty expensive though. If you can wait 3 days get these:

http://www.coupang.com/vp/products/11688148?itemId=50303254&vendorItemId=3078343009&q=sprinkles&itemsCount=36&searchId=75239ba2d2ae4c4aaf5665cca36cfc1e&rank=6 

or buy them at homeplus  / lotte


or these are next day delivery :

Sadly the sprinkles for Fairy Bread are the little round rainbow ones, 100's and 1000's. I can't find them anywhere except in a 5kg bag for $50.

I suppose I COULD buy them and just make a lot of sprinkle cookies after??

Does Coupang do the whole "fee on delivery" thing too? Idunno how to handle it. Do I give the guy cash when he gives me the box? I found the ones I need but I'm only used to Gmarket

As someone who consumed fairy bread at every birthday party I attended from ages 2-7, I can tell you that there is no specified type of sprinkle that has to be used. Yes, the little round 100s and 1000s were the norm, but that's becuase in 1980s/early 90s NZ, that was all that was available. The typical sprinkle-type are fine and I've seen them used on fairy bread in my adult years.
