And, controversially, Warbies did not even include “barm” as one of its four options — instead preferring rolls, baps, cobs or “other” .Unleash the Northerners!
So we asked the Bolton public what they call this particular product — and they replied in their thousands. And those who responded from this fair town were overwhelmingly in favour of — barm.
Anthony Barry, from Bolton, said: “Barm. You wouldn't go in a chippy and ask for a chip teacake would you.”
Dawnie Atkinson added: “A muffin is sweet, like you get in Costa or Starbucks. A cob is crusty. A roll is longer and this is nothing but a Balm (sic). End of.”
Karl Dalglish, from Farnworth, wrote: “It is and always will be a barm cake. End of.”
Brad Hooton, from Bolton, said: “It's a barm. Fact.”I hope you’ve all got that?
