Re: Pepperoni Pizza Menu 23 NOT in 2021 inspection case

I contacted Bridgford asking for a sample pizza. Due to EU regulations they are not able to send me one, but otherwise would have liked to do so.

"Lite" versions of German EPA rations?

Hi folks, Some EPA ratpacks on the market seem to be a lighter version of the older EPAs - in the way that Britpacks have been downsized to something more like 3000Kcal as opposed to 4100KCal..
