    Alas, in the U.S. we don’t have fishfingers or Bird’s custard. So, I will just have to buy fishsticks and eat vanilla pudding with them. Wait, I think I might have some Bird’s cutard mix mum sent over for Christmas!!

    The packaging of the fish fingers in the picture was an April fool, however, national fish custard day is 100% real!
    I’ve ‘ad mine, now it’s my favourite food!
    Give it a try, my parents are very over protective but I got ’em in the end, better than Jelly Babbies!!
