Farewell 2012. It has been a good year.
As well as the advent of the FishFingerSandwich blog, 2012 has seen the arrival of peddlers of fine filth such as Honest Burgers and Wishbone. Pizza Hut's Cheesburger Pizza hit the headlines. Cadbury had the laughably stupid idea of launching a chocolate bar for women. And I ate lots of Gelupo's mince-pie-and-mulled-wine ice cream.
So what can we look forward to in 2013?
The London burger war is about to intensify, when US chain Shake Shack come to London, going head-to-head with the likes of MeatLiquor. The FishFingerSandwich blog recently went on a reconnaissance mission to Shake Shack in NY, and after tasting their charred-yet-juicy burgers between the squishy buns, and the so-rich-it-hurts peanut butter milkshake, I can only assume that they are going to be a force to be reckoned with.
There are also new flavours of Ben & Jerry's ice cream to look forward to, which have apparently already gone into production, yet are still a closely guarded secret...
And of course every chocolate lover will be looking forward to Easter, but if you live in Doncaster, you might just be in for a special treat.
And right here on the FishFingerSandwich blog, we'll be looking at the best ways to use those Christmas left-overs, assembling some absurd sandwiches, doing some unusual things with beer, and combining things that really shouldn't go together.
See you on the other side.
