On to the Poetry
Higgidy pies for me,
My Higgidy friends agree,
That nothing is better
Than spinach and feta
In a Higgidy quiche for your tea.
Twinkle twinkle little Star
Now I see just what you are
You’re not in the sky so high
You’re on my favourite Higgidy Pie
This Higgidy rhyme written by me; is supposed to encourage charity.
So, next time you go to the shops to buy an Higgidy quiche or pie, remember to buy one for the homeless too or otherwise they will wonder ‘why?’
I know they are scrumptious so yummy; that you just want it for your tummy.
But remember it’s much better to share; so show the world that you care.
Higgidy crunchy, Higgidy yum; you can’t just have it all for your tum.
Higgidy tasty so delicious, so share it with every one; encourage them to buy their Higgidy treat; those quiche and pies you just cannot beat.
Higgidy fresh, Higgidy pure; when you want one you just want more.
Remember to eat it moderately; and remember to save one for me! :-)
Next time you’re peckish and fancy a treat;
A Higgidy quiche could be just up your street.
It’s fresh and nutritious and tastes like a dream;
When your teeth sink into it your taste buds will scream.
I went and bought a Higgidy Spinach and little feta quiche for mine and my mom’s tea
I couldn’t believe it when I had one bite; I decided to have it all for me.
It was so scrummy, so delicious, so yummy
That I now want more Higgidy quiche in my tummy.
I’ve just ordered some more quiche just for me
If anyone else asks for some you’ll know what my answer will be.
Of course I will share it moderately
But I will make sure there’s more for me – yummy!
Your little quiche was such a treat,
No prep to do and so good to eat.
This was my first and I have to agree,
I’ll be buying some more to eat for my tea.
I’ve been writing poems for a year or two
And couldn’t resist doing this one for you
I realise that it’s not very good
Which is more than I can say for your excellent food!
I had a higgidy pie today, the first I’ve ever eaten -
I have to say that I believe the pie cannot be beaten.
The crust had poppy seeds in and the eggs were laid free range
I ate it walking down the street – the looks I got were strange!
I had a higgidy pie today, the best I’ve ever seen
The feta was so creamy and the spinach was so….green!
The little cherry tomato looked so scrummy on the top
(My husband didn’t get any – I had to eat the lot!)
I had a higgidy pie today, it’s caused a little prob
My husband now won’t talk to me, nor my son or dog.
They say I shouldn’t eat it all, that it was so unfair
But it was so deliciously gorgeous that I JUST DON’T CARE!!!!!!!!!

A group of people – a quorum ?
Make wonderful food down at Shoreham.
Their pies and quiches
Are simply deliches (delicious!);
You really just cannot ignore ’em !!
Oh! higgidy piggidy pie,
I can’t afford you so much,
that’s no lie.
So imagine my shock and delight,
when out shopping one wintry night.
I past the reduced and then I deduced,
that paying £1.69 was alright.
I clutched on to you, oh! so tight,
never for once leaving your sight,
paid at the till,
then drove up the hill,
to my house that was perched on the right.
Safely inside I went to switch on the oven,
then I remembered I had no apron to put on.
I couldn’t possibly cook without an apron,
so I sat with my face all forlorn.
Then, I wondered if I could be so bold,
as to eat a higgidy mushroom & leaf spinach pie cold.
Yes!, you were still tasty and surprisingly filling for one so small,
then I knew, without a doubt, even if eaten hot, you’d still be cool.
Today at home,
When I came back from school,
I saw a quiche,
That made me drool!
In the lovely warm oven,
By then I was tingling,
from my head to toes!
I sniffed a little,
A smell quite inviting,
Sat at the table,
Gave it a taste,
It passed my lips,
Better than any old,
Egg and chips!
I’m only 9,
Higgidy’s the best,
I’ve had in my life time!
I wish I could put it,
In a treasure chest,
HIGGIDY’S IS THE BEST!!
Peckish, it time for me to eat
So to the store I go for a treat
Higgidy, oh what can that be
A quiche, sounds pretty good to me
That was great, now I want more
So once again I’m off to the store.
Oh small quiche, small quiche,
How you console me so.
Oh little quiche, little quiche,
In my belly you go.
You were two days out of date,
But still tasted great.
Oh baby quiche, baby quiche,
You make the good times flow.
There was a young lady from Devon, While tasting a pie, was in heaven! The label said higgidy, So she did a jiggidy, and proceeded to scoff the next seven!
I’m at my desk -my lunch looks great
A Higgidy pie upon on my plate
It’s steaming hot and tastes divine
The same tomorrow will be just fine!
I know the reason my pie tastes so good
The Higgidy people do just what they should
Everything’s wholesome and finished by hand
That’s why their pies are the best in the land!
I love all sorts of pies you know
Even though they make my middle grow
Apple, blackberry, raspberry, peach
All within an easy reach
But just lately I must confess
There’s only one that I consider best
I hear you asking which that may be
And I’ll shout aloud “HIGGIDY”
I’d been feeling a little bit ill
I’d been suffering from a small chill
Hot quiche with spinach and feta
Soon made me feel better
And now there’s no need for a pill!
Higgidy, Piggidy, Pie and punch,
Us veges are usually a poetic bunch,
We eat our cheese and spinach too,
And sometimes a tomato, who knew!?
The good folks at Higgidy Pie,
Have created something we find fly,
From the pics to the little hearts,
From the pies to the good ol’ tarts,
They’ve put it together and made a delight, Which all us veges enjoy.. Right to the last bite!
I bought a pie, a little dearer than most.
To put in a buffet, I was the host.
So lovely it looked, I had a try
A bit more, another slice, by and by
My taste buds and tummy it did please
My guests got pickles, bread and cheese!
The very next day I trundled into town.
For more tasty pies in boxes coloured brown.
I went to buy two but ended with six.
I’m happy I’ve got my Higgidy fix.
ps Happy to spend the money on something so tasty and full of proper ingredients.
from a farmer who knows what good food is x
I am a vegetarian,
Something I am by choice,
I don’t eat fish or animals,
I don’t think that is nice.
So when it comes to lunch time
And I need a little treat,
I know exactly what will help
And where to direct my feet!
When looking for something filling,
Something to really hit the spot,
With its red pepper, spinach and feta too,
My Higgidy quiche really has the lot.
The whole thing is very easy to eat,
Wrapped in its lovely coat of pastry,
You don’t need to add a single thing
To something that’s this tasty.
No nasty things or colours added
Its pure in all its glory
“Suitable for Vegetarians” it shouts
Which just completes my story!!
There was a young man from Skye
Whose favourite food was a pie
Haggis he stuffed
In a puff pastry crust
And when asked if he liked said “och aye!”
Little mushroom and spinach pie
I wouldn’t want to tell a lie
Its too yummy to share
so we have to buy a pair
Its one for me and another for him
so we can continue on our way to being slim
It goes well with a nice leafy salad or a naughty plate of chips
as long as we don’t think of it going straight on the hips
Little mushroom and spinach pie
Its so delicious it can make me cry!
Your pies are pieces of heaven,
lovingly moulded on a dish.
They brighten up the dullest day,
fulfilling my every wish.
Waitrose staff that sell them are blissfully unaware,
of the selfish pleasures within them, truly not to share.
So everytime I indulge, I get a special little tingle.
The thought of lovely ladies making them, unattached or single.
I well recall that special day,
Shopping in the month of May.
A vision was within my reach…..
A counter full of Higgidy quiche!
Rushed back home, put oven on,
Removed quiche from the pack.
On second thoughts, let’s eat it cold -
It’s such a yummy snack!
There once was a quiche, that so pleasing,
delighted a lady in eating.
She was so wonderfully fed
by its peppers of red,
her friend said “I’ll have what she’s having!”
My1 My! My! What a pretty pie!
Well! Well! Well! What a super smell!
Nice! Nice! Nice! Have another slice!
Have another pie! It’s a reasonable price.
How good to have found this jolly little pie!
It even conjures doggerel! My! My! My!
Higgidy Little Quiche is my special meal
How lovely & full you make me feel
With spinach, onions, chedder & feta too
All these things are good for you
If a weightwatcher you will be
Then here are the ProPoints & you can see
For 155 g size its eleven points for all
A half will certainly keep you small
But as a main meal or lunch itâ€™s better than for tea
So slimmer Iâ€™ll stay and theyâ€™re still good for me
The morning goes so slowly,
my desk is piled high,
meeting after meeting the hours just wont tick by.
My solace comes at lunchtime
From the desk draw I do pull
A little bit of heaven, my belly I wish to fill.
The afternoon is easy
I’m set up from my feed
I can take whatever comes
Higgidy Pies my friend indeed!
