9 out of 10 hawaiian pizzas from independent takeaways contain turkey ham

Recommended Posts

So an expose on itv tonight took 10 "ham & pineapple" pizzas from 10 different independent takeaways and sent them off for analysis 

9 out of 10  contained turkey ham instead of pork ham 

would people really order a turkey & pineapple pizza? i know its near xmas n all but would you? 

all 10 establishments were contacted for comment......

2 replied

"our menu is halal accredited and so we use turkey ham instead of pork"

"most of our customers are muslim and everyone knows "ham" means turkey in this area" 

Food standards agency states:

"religious observance does not overide the food descriptions act" 

Apparently "sampling" has been stopped by Food Standards agency  and a sniveller from Blackpool was interviewed and when the evidence was put to him he just shrugged & went beetroot red. 

i think the proliferation of kebab & pizza takeaways has been allowed to flourish by the FSA turning a blind eye and dropping "sampling" stating "lack of funding"

Has anyone ever actually ordered a ham and pineapple pizza since the 1980s? O.o

you see this is the scam, they call it "Hawaiian" these days, so they can claim you ordered "hawaiian" and not HAM & pineapple

thus avoiding trade descriptions act. 

I Actually had a leaflet drop and phoned the place, i said i wanted ham & pineapple, 

fella said "its a turkey ham sir" 

i said no i want pork ham

fella said "ahhhh  its a turkey ham sir, we do turkey ham"

ALL food on Britain should contain pork, by strictly enforced laws.  

My diet is pretty much pork products and steak.

Not ordered one, as I tend to go with spicy meat feast. Surely the pepperoni is pork? Ham and pineapple is my preference when buying to cook myself though. Fold it in half to make a sandwich. Love 'em.

Incidentally we discovered tonight that Old Jamaica Pineapple Soda goes really well with After Eights.

I get them at Christmas, along with Vienetta. Remember them? :D

Vienetta seems to have been weirdly relegated to such as Farmfoods, Herons etc., along with multipack raspberry ripple mousses. Similarly odd is how Carabao can afford the naming rights to the League Cup, but I've only ever seen the actual product in B&M's/Poundstretcher.

Pretty sure I read Carabao in S America or somewhere sells 10x as many cans as Red Bull...

A Freedom of Information request found 33 local authorities have done no food sampling at all in the last year.

A further six councils did not do any food hygiene sampling including Liverpool, St Helens, Windsor and Maidenhead, Richmond upon Thames and Waltham Forest.

      Well, how was your day?
      Mine was good, woken by youngest, got him to wake his brother and opened some stocking presents. Made some tea and got them to wake their sister, opened the rest of the stockings. Went downstairs and had scrambled eggs and pancetta, drank Buck’s Fizz then off to tree for present opening. Put toys together, dealt with huge amounts of paper and cardboard then played. Sorta mooched about drinking and eating then cooked the big meal and ate about 5ish (?). Did a bit of tidying and had a shit then watched Elf, played a bit more then got the boys off to bed. Gonna have a wee play with the new Kindle Fire and sleep. Folk coming round tomorrow and more presents, food and drink. 
      It was a stress trying to get ready for the day, and January is gonna be a skint month and therefore a stress, but it went well, food was lovely too, I’m off to eat a bit more, not much room so prob chocolate cake and tea. 
       
      God, sorry- this could well be a really poor thread, hopefully others will have more riveting accounts of their day. I’m tired, full and a bit wasted. 
      Anyone got much in the way of plans for new year too? I have almost not thought of it at all, I did get a nice bottle of 90 proof Bourbon for Christmas though....
      Next year is where it’s at, for me anyway, I’m gonna rock the shocking show!
      Anyway.... Merry Christmas to you all, and may next year be good to you as I am going to make it be for me.

      Mexico launches the 2000 Peso note

      'which begs the question: why the sudden need for an even higher denomination note? The most likely answer? To keep up with inflation.
      In the last 10 years the Mexican currency has lost much of its value despite the fact that inflation during that time has been relatively tame by Mexican standards! The accumulated inflation rate of the last 10 years of so-called “moderate” inflation is 51%. The result has been a 34% fall in purchasing power.'
       
      Spainish banks exposure to South American and Turkish debt crisis
      https://wolfstreet.com/2018/08/31/turkey-argentina-brazil-other-emerging-markets-haunt-spanish-banks/
      'In the case of Turkey’s financial system, Spanish banks had total exposure of $82.3 billion in the first quarter of 2018, according to the Bank for International Settlements. That’s more than the combined exposure of lenders from the next three most exposed economies, France, the USA, and the UK, which reached $75 billion in the same period.
      According to BIS statistics, Spanish banks’ exposure to Turkey’s economy almost quadrupled between 2015 and 2018, largely on the back of Spain’s second largest bank BBVA’s madcap purchase of roughly half of Turkey’s third largest lender, Turkiye Garanti Bankasi. Since buying its first chunk of the bank from the Turkish group Dogus and General Electric in 2010, BBVA has lost over 75% of its investment under the combined influence of Garanti’s plummeting shares and Turkey’s plunging currency.
      But the biggest fear, as expressed by the ECB on August 10, is that Turkish borrowers might not be hedged against the lira’s weakness and begin to default en masse on foreign currency loans, which account for a staggering 40% of the Turkish banking sector’s assets.
      In Brazil Spanish banks have total exposure to the economy of $167 billion, according to BIS data. That’s the equivalent of 44.6% of total foreign banking investments in the country. For Banco Santander, Brazil is by far its biggest market, accounting for 26% of its global operating profits, compared to just 16% for Spain.
      Meanwhile, in Mexico Spanish banks have over $160 billion invested, which represents 42% of total foreign banking exposure. Once again, it’s BBVA that is doing the heavy lifting, through its subsidiary BBVA Bancomer, the largest bank in Mexico. It provided 45% of BBVA’s group profits in the first half of 2018.
      This pattern of exposure to emerging-market risk is replicated across most Latin American economies. In Chile Spanish banks account for 43% of total foreign bank-owned debt; in Colombia, it’s 32% and in Peru, it’s 40%.'
       
      Turkey’s Debt & Currency Crisis Morphs into Financial Crisis as Banks Face Funding Squeeze
      https://wolfstreet.com/2018/08/30/turkey-debt-currency-crisis-lira-crash-dollar-debt-banks-financial-crisis/
      The more the lira falls against major foreign currencies such as the dollar and the euro, the more difficulties the banks will have funding their operations. According to Moody’s, a serious funding crisis could come sooner rather than later, given that in the next 12 months around $77 billion of foreign currency wholesale bonds and syndicated loans — equivalent to 41% of the total market funding — needs to be refinanced.
      Over the past four months, the lira has plunged 40%.
       
      Global bondholders are understandably concerned about this trend, especially given that it coincides, and is partly the result of, rising U.S. rates and a firming U.S dollar. These bondholders’ predictable response is to beg the IMF to step in and impose some semblance of order on Turkey’s economy, whose currency crisis has already turned into a debt crisis that is now dragging some rather large European banks through the mire.
      What global bondholders ultimately want is for the IMF to lend Turkey money to bail out Turkey’s bondholders so as to put an end to the turmoil and torture in emerging markets bonds, which were selling like hotcakes just eight months ago. There’s one big problem with the plan, however: for the IMF to intervene in a country’s economy, it must first be invited to do so by that country’s respective government — and it usually attaches some unpalatable strings.
       
      https://wolfstreet.com/2018/08/30/argentina-peso-collapses-20-in-2-days-as-government-asks-for-faster-imf-bailout/
      Yesterday the peso plunged 7%; and today as of midday in Buenos Aires, it has plunged over 17%. That brings the total plunge for the two days to 24%. It now takes 41.3 pesos to buy a dollar. Seen the other way around, a peso is now worth 2.4 cents (down from $1 in early 2002):
      WTF happened? As soon as those IMF dollars started flowing a couple of months ago, the government – the central bank is under the Ministry of Finance and thus integral part of the government – started selling those dollars and buying pesos. But it was the only entity buying pesos, and those dollars were handed to the pesos sellers and thus wasted instead of being invested in the economy.
      This is what a currency-and-debt crisis looks like: Argentina has $120 billion in dollar-denominated debt, a chunk of which comes due next year and needs to be paid off, and in order to pay off this debt, Argentina needs to be able to borrow more dollars. This was no problem last year, when it was even able to issue 100-year dollar bonds, but sheer insanity has left the building, and investors have opened their eyes.
      This goes back to my old dictum: No one should ever lend dollars to Argentina, not even the IMF. This always ends the same way: in a default.
      The thing is, a collapsing peso makes imports more expensive in peso terms, which pushes up inflation, which in turn helps crush the peso…. You get the idea.'
