Have you ever tried what are supposed to be the original Cornish Pasties, with meat at one end and pudding at the other - so the Tin Miner got lunch and dessert? I haven`t myself but apparently that is the story.
Yes - can you believe a VAT on hot snacks? - although I remember 15% VAT added to take aways back in about 1982 (ish), and I was gutted as an Indian or Chines takeaway broke through the more than £1 barrier for a curry and rice, and that was that. A takeway as it was not consumed on the premises did not attract VAT until that fateful day - and once applied it ain`t ever coming off again!!
Depends on the kind of pudding, I guess. Rice might be good -- lemon, not so much....
Well, GST, our equivalent of VAT, is slapped on things like that, whether you eat in or do takeaway. But if you want stupid government regulations, here's one for you: if you go into a bakery and buy two pastries, you're charged GST because that's "a meal" but if you buy six, then it's considered "grocery" and there's no GST charged.
