How does one eat crumpets properly? I bought some and am not sure how exactly they should be eaten. I toasted and ate one plain. Is that proper enough?

Normally one puts butter on them. I've never found them very interesting, can't remember when I last had one. Bagels have them licked hollow.

You can put anything on them, I usually put cheese or vegemite on them. You can put jam or honey or something like that. Plain is a bit dry and boring.

I usually toast and butter mine, though I also find honey, strawberry jam or cream cheese to work well.

Caesar, mate, I don't know how to break this to you, but I don't like... tea, either. I love cricket, will that do?

Vegemite, just to make them Australian.

Have you tried tea the traditional way?

You know, sweetened with sugar, poured over iced, and optionally served with a twist of lemon?

I have had iced tea, it's quite nice, but scarcely British. Also Long Island Tea, that I liked.

Hmm, you like cricket, and obviously the Queen, so you might be English... two questions may determine this: do you go to a bar or a pub, and would order a glas of beer or a pint?

Whilst I must admit my shock at an Englishman who does not hold with tea, I do second your approval of a Long Island Iced tea

I have had iced tea and I found it utterly revolting, but, then again, it was Starbucks. Speaking of teas, my favourite tea is rooibos tea (hot, of course).

By the way, in case Tom should think he might try the Long Island variety and see if it's better, wait a few years. You'll have to, it's made from among other things measures of vodka, gin, tequila and rum. I first had one in New Orleans, it was hot and it sounded like it might be refreshing. It was, so I had another one. Noticing a tendency to slide off my stool, I finally thought to enquire what was in it.

I understand Vegemite is something like Marmite, one of the most purely disgusting substances ever consumed by human beings. I'm a celebrity, get me out of here isn't even in it. It basically looks and smells like essence of deeply decayed mouse. What it tastes like, I naturally couldn't tell you.
