Tripe
« on: September 13, 2012, 03:03:51 PM »
Bit of an odd one, this - my wife and I are due to spend a week in Blackpool sampling the delights of the illuminations.

Does anyone know if we will be able to buy tripe anywhere and if so, where?

Many thanks.

Hello Jeremy, welcome to Live In Blackpool.

In answer to your question, unfortunately, no, I don't. Then again I am not a local and it is not something I would be looking for.

Hopefully one of our local posters can help you, there are a few.

Have you tried googling a search for it?

Kind Regards, Chris

You can buy The Sun at any newspaper agents, that's full of tripe.

Thanks, BelleVueShrew.  I had a go with Dr Google but the first result for "tripe Blackpool" was a superbreak weekend in Blackpool! 
I came across a reference to a cafĂ© in Bank Hey Street, Blackpool, behind the Tower, which was the number one tripe venue for millions of day trippers over the years.  It was no doubt there when I was a lad, but is it still going?

I doubt there are any cafes selling tripe, but maybe a restaurant does, or it can be bought in the market?

Ron Reddys sells tripe, I believe.

But, forget tripe, go to Choice Butchers on Dickson Road, by Gynn Square ---- Square Sausage with Black Pudding in the middle -- it's the future !!!!

Try the market on Abingdon Street

Failing that it will be a trip across Lancs in the car to the markets at Blackburn, Accrington or Burnley

I am not sure I get your drift.  I holidayed in Blackpool as a youngster and have fond memories of the place.  My parents hardly ever went anywhere else for their holidays.

Thanks BelleVueShrew. I think there's likely to be a local stockist and maybe I should contact the Tripe Marketing Board mentioned in the article you have found.  Many thanks for that.

Thanks, ericbee123 - I see Ron Reddy's is in Topping Street. 

I know it's a long shot, but restaurants are serving tripe more and more, so if anyone comes across this thread and knows of one in Blackpool let me know!

Excuse Peter, Jeremy, we had a bit of an issue with a past poster who came on here looking for trouble and this obviously isn't that sort of site.

He is just being guarded as he wasn't sure if you were on a wind up. I have to admit it is one of the more unusual requests we have had on here, but I'm all for diversity!!  :thumbup:

Anyway, I have made sure Peter has had his three shredded wheat this morning and there should be no need for his muzzle today  ;)  :biggrin:

Back to the tripe then, is this something I have been missing out on? Is it more a Lancashire thing, like Betty's hotpot (yes, I watched Coronation Street when I was younger)? I can't say I ever recall having had it.

It used to be much more popular than it is today.  That Google reference to the cafe on Bank Hey Street would be an accurate reference - it was in fact a staple part of the Lancashire diet.  I'm from Durham myself but my grandparents ate it regularly and my parents occasionally.  I see that the Tripe Marketing Board are trying to engineer a comeback - personally, I hope they do.  But it's an uphill battle I daresay!

I don't recall going to the Bank Hey Street cafe but I am sure lots of people in Blackpool must do.

You can sometimes get tripe on the menu in Chinese restaurants, and Italians like it a lot.  I see from a Daily Mail article that Gordon Ramsay has promoted it.  I found this rather amusing video while Googling, too:

I am starting to think the Tripe Marketing Board is a bit of a wind up  :confused1:

Their website is a little peculiar (I found the details on the video link I just posted) - probably all a big joke.

Ah, well , I thought it was too good to be true that tripe was making a comeback!

You know, you have got me fascinated, for the sake of my own (fragile) sanity, I am going to have to look into tripe a little more.

I shall ask my mother when I see her tomorrow for starters  :thumbup1:

No worries - as I said, I think the whole site is a spoof the more I look at it.  How on earth did they get into East Lancashire papers?

AND the Daily Mirror... http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/bid-to-get-classic-dish-tripe-back-1274711

I just read on their website that

  • A diet of tripe can increase your libido by up to 400%
    To cure hair loss, simply wrap a sheet of tripe around your head and secure  with a swimming cap
    The first tripe takeaway, Tripe Hut, opened in Manchester in 1979. It closed the following year

It MUST be a wind-up!
