8. Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS)

One of the most convienent things about Povey's oatcakes is that you are able to freeze them so you can use at lesiure.. Moreover, you simply can add your favourite ingredients, be that savoury or sweet and place into the mircowave for ease.
Simply roll up some grated cheese, cooked bacon, tomato, cooked mushrooms - or in fact anything you like - in an oatcake and microwave it on full for about a minute. You can also grill them, or eat them cold. Using big chunks of cheese instead of the grated variety gives the most interesting texture. Alternatively for a sweet opition you can add strawberries and cream, or even go to the extreme and place in your favourite chocolate bar... currently the mars bar seems to be a firm favourite. However, for us at Povey's best of all is a cheese, bacon and egg double, with brown sauce. Oatcakes can also be served with jam, a bit of butter (hot or cold) or eaten plain.
Poveys produce hundreds of thousands of these delicious rounds of baked loveliness each year from a closely-guarded family secret, only known to Mr Povey and the potteries people love them.
