Oh - elephant's feet buns, they were scrumptious! They also used to sell them at Fletcher's shop in Middlewood Road.:)

What were those buns called that were puff pastry filled with apple and cream and covered with sugar?

I think once you start buying Fletchers bread, you just don't care anymore! The reason it lasts so long is the high fat content.

Yeah, I've got a photo of one too; it's a bit less dramatic than yours though!

 

PICTURE of Fletchers Van.

I think it went something like "Fletchers bread, tastes like lead! When you eat it you drop dead!"

 

Incidentally there's already another thread about Fletchers vans.
