A big confession………since a little boy my number one indulgence has been an apple turnover.
Others may turn to alcohol, drugs, smokes, gambling or whatever……we all have a weakness.
Over the years I learnt all about food’s nutritional value etc. and decided to still allow myself an occasional special treat.
This morning on my early ride I found I had $3.00 in my pocket.
As I rode I wondered how I might best spend this amount.
Suddenly my favorite food came to mind but it costs $3,20…….20 cents short.
Then my mind started working and I devised a plan to get my fav food for $3.00
Approach the lovely girl and suggest I buy the WGAT for $3.00
and give the business .20 cents free advertising on my world blog site.
The plan came unstuck when I suggested I pay $3.00 to the beautiful Claudia……… and she agreed.
I then went on to tell her of my plan anyway and she agreed to have a couple of photos taken.
THE WORLD’S GREATEST APPLE TURNOVER (TWGAT)
Packed with fresh-baked apples, topped with fluffy fresh cream, in a light crusty butter pastry dusted like the first fall of winter snow.
New York might have Gray’s Papaya but Nerang has TWGAT.

Looks delicious! xxoo
Thanks…..it sure is!!!! 🙂
This is a smart story,really….
From the beginning to the end,congrats ,Robert , I know you’re great!
Many thanks……so pleased you enjoyed it…….it was a lot of fun.
Great business model. And lovely pictures. Makes me want to have one. Also, the date is freaky – one day ahead… 😉
Thought that someone might pick up on the business model……..one bite you you would be hooked.
The date thing is always weird…….virually always ahead of the rest of the world. Particularly crazy when you are flying to Europe or Americas.
When I first visited New York it was Christmas Day. Left Sydney at 6.00am on Christmas Day and was flying for about 24 hours and arrived in NY at 10 pm the same day….how’s that!
I guess it works in your favor if you fly from AUS to the US but vice versa must make you feel like you’re losing an entire day…
How true that is…….one day somehow misssing from your life…..
Like the perfect vanilla slice…………. a thing of beauty but not that easy to find……… well done on your ‘cunning plan’ and I hope that the publicity works. I’ll certainly drop in if I’m ever up your way and I will mention your blog.
Terry………………….. real cream, I hope?
Terry……Vanilla slices were originally about number 3 on my list. Think they make them too but nothing comes close to TWGAT. Yes it is REAL cream…..and much of it. Did I mention they are 8 inches in length. Usually share one.
It might we worth a holiday just to have one…….could become a reason to visit The Gold Coast.
Can’t talk…………. mouth watering.
You’re absolutely right!!!
Sounds like a great treat!
Absolutely Meta…..but only ocassionally.
Do they do take out? I’m within 2000 mile radius! Great fun reading your post as always. Best, Nicholas.
Nicholas……..2000 miles…….that’s just down the road. I’ll talk to them about International shipping. In NY they do it with Gray’s Papaya and many other products. But since they don’t do take-outs I don’t like your chances.
Pleased you enjoy my posts……love your art.
Thanks Robert! 🙂
Robert, oh Robert – so admiring of your subtle ‘hungry artist’ line – anything to get those sweets down your bearded throat…..
John…. you have just given me a reality check. How fortunate I have been to enjoy such food and care in a country blessed in so many ways. As I struggle to give something of value to the world life has been kind to me. I am very grateful……..and to be able to enjoy TWGAT too!
Oh man….those look so good, and, they’re big. I too like to secretly indulge in pastry.
Must agree Hansi…….although some won’t admit it.

My husband found this review & asked that I read it, I saw the picture of Claudia & the sweet treat you purchased & I started to get excited by the time I finished reading the blog I had a grin from ear to ear & goose bumps.
I am always a proud wife but right now I’m super proud.
You see my French pasty chef husband made that TWGAT that you discovered on that day. We are glad you enjoyed it.
I know he is amazing at his job, but this is proof, so thank you 😀
Thank you ezznico…….I am thrilled to get your comment and see that your wonderful husband……makes these amazing pastries. It must be sooooo tempting to enjoy such delights whenever you like.
Looks like I will be visiting Claudia again…… very soon.
What an ingenious way to get a lower price and delicious Apple turnover.
It has been a lot of fun……..thanks Kathy…….best wishes, Robert
