A Yummy Alien Invasion

Darryl Johnston, a.k.a. @ukgnome and one of our most avid listeners recently posted a picture on Twitter of himself eating a strange confection called Flying Saucers, which are made from rice paper with sherbet inside.


He wrote in his tweet, “Sat on a train eating flying saucers for breakfast and listening to @galacticnetcast #alieninvasion.”  So, after a little back and forth, Darryl offered to send me a bag of my own, along with some other alien and space related candy from England.

Included were a…

  • Star Bar
  • Galaxy Smooth Milk chocolate
  • A box of Magic Stars
  • Haribo candy (Starmix)
  • Kinder Surprise with an Iron Man toy inside

Darryl also threw in a bag of Thornton’s Premium collection chocolate for my lovely wife.

Now, this is one alien invasion that’s going to be very delicious!

Gotta go, got some eating to do!!!
