Hi. Bit busy today. But listen: I’ve mentioned Martin’s Jerked Meats here before, right? UK purveyors of fine, tasty and often experimental jerky and fruit leathers and other good things. Just got email from them (sent to all their customers), and the snow’s killed their most profitable market show of the year — after they drove twelve hours through the bloody snow to get there. For a tiny specialty food company to miss out on a huge Xmas market… that’s going to hurt. So they’re throwing freebies like their excellent Jack Daniels Jerky into orders over fifteen quid. Frankly, meat (or fruit, or their vegetable options) makes a better gift than socks.
