Dairylea, like Philadelphia (and Quiche actually) are for poofs. These are not foodstuffs for men.

I don't know why I've always thought this. Perhaps the consistency of it might be used as a lubricant, I don't fucking know.

Aye, it's bumming oil.

 Noticed some butteries(ok,rowies then) in Herds the butchers of all places.Asked them where they got them,they said they make their own  :eek:.
    Admiring their British entrepreneurial spirit,I splashed out on a couple,........   but have to say they were no more than average at best  :-\.

   Next stop is the much fabled Aitken rowie.

I see Aitkens are closing down and selling off their shops. Probably in protest at all these Dairylea Deviants.

Are they closing or just shutting up their shops outwith the main bakery?  The wifie at John Street gets fairly crabbit when you ask her what's happening.  She put a note on the door asking folk not to ask about the for sale sign as they haven't been told anything.

I don't think it's the Dairylees Deviants who have contributed to its downfall, probably folk going to Greggs, who should be investigated by trading standards over their claim to be a bakery.

Aye, the lassie in John Street was a bit miffed, they were told fuck all, the "for sale" sign just appeared.

Anyone who goes to Greggs should be shot as a weegie.

List of lost bakers includes

Murdochs

Duncans

Mitchell & Muil

Simmers

Crawfords



And that diznae include all the little "one shop" bakers that there used to be.

What was the one on East Merkland Road called?
The smell of the rolls coming out of the oven used to waken me up when I lived there.

There was a home baker on Rosemount Place until quite recently across from Skene Square School.
I grew up in Hill Street so it was pretty handy, although we used Murdochs mostly.

There was also a superb baker at the bottom of Raeburn Place (backing onto Baker Street)
I remember the road outside was slidey as fuck with all the flour mixed with rain.

That Baker was Kennedys. I served my time their.

Lows in Torry was another one which bit the dust. One of the Thains bought it and went bust after a few months, a real shame that.

Sunnybank Bakery was another one I remember.

The Copie Baker and AB Hutchisons are another two I remember.

AB Hutchisons, I would never have remembered that, fine baps.

Lows on Victoria Road did the best softies in town.
They were my daughters favourites when she was little.
We used to drive over to Torry every Sunday morning for Rolls, Softies and Sunday papers.

Chalmers is up for sale as well.

Used to live next door to the baker on Chapel Street, that was pretty good. Something something Ross I think it was called.

Another baker I can think of is Strathdee.

Aye, Ross's on Chapel Street

Another baker that was worth a visit to the door beside the shop ( which was closed) late at night.

Not to be confused with the bloody awful Ross's baker from Inverurie.

It's been a shadow of it's former self in recent years.

I mind the Famer's Bakery. My Gran used to stay in Farmer's Hall, not from it and I used to get a funcie piece when we visited on a Saturday. That is going back a long time. Not it is the office of an Accountant.

If I mind correctly Kelly of Cults used to have a shop up that way also.

My accountant, strangely enough.

The closest Kelly of Cults shop I remember was on Rose Street.


It would have been Farmers Hall Lane when you visited your Gran wouldn't it?
