retail disappointment

How come the sodding COOP sells 12 different sorts of flavoured cream and NO BRANDY BUTTER?

I still have had no mincepies yet this year. Woeisme.

EDIT: soddit, the local shop had none either! Damnit, I shall just MAKE some.

I prefer brandy cream on principle, purely because my Mum - who Spoonerises more than Spooner himself - always manages to call it "candid bream". Brandy butter ends up as "bandy brutter," which is far less interesting, and brandy cream wins out because it makes for a more amusing Christmas dinner.

Am now racking brains to come up with 11 other things you can flavour cream with...

Whisky (several ) Baileys, Grand marnier, vanilla liqueur, Kalua...

I don't even know what 'vanilla liqueur' tastes like as a liqueur - surely most of these items are more obscure than brandy butter?

I shall have to make a special voyage to Waitrose, it looks like.

Maybe someone at Co-op head office accidentally added an extra zero when putting in a standing order for cream, so then had to desperately come up with exciting ways to use it...?
