Bingo, I found it
I have looked EVERYWHERE for Bird's Custard Powder, and in desperation, went to the WalMart website - wow, there it was! In my humble opinion, it is the ONLY product to use for making English Triffle.
Birds custard is very good. The directions are easy and the result is a good custard in minutes
Not enough product for the money
I have not actually used the product yet but my complaint is about how small the can is. I was expecting more for the money. However I guess that this is my fault for not paying attention to the amount of ounces in this can when reading the description. I just assumed that the can was bigger.
This Mixture Hates Me.
Ok. I'll admit it: defeat. I have had Birds Custard Powder in my life for 63 years, and I have tried for the last 50 or so to make custard with this impossible concoction of evil powder. I have killed nonstick cookware all over the world, and otherwise perfect stainless steel pans were reduced to a post nuclear explosion state. I have invented more than a thousand new swear words, and I have gone hungry for custard for the last time. Yesterday I destroyed yet another non stick pan containing globules of yellow stuff attached in a welded paste to some black stained stuff (I believe this was originally the bottom of the pan). ENOUGH I cried. No more custard in my life. So Birds, you may have won the numerous battles over the last 50 years, but who won the war hey? Hahahhaaaaaaaha.
