PostSubject: More manly stuff: biscuits   Tue Apr 01, 2008 1:38 pm

Got thinking about biscuits the other day. Who invents buiscits and do they have a patent on them? I'm a bourbon cream man myself and I always assumed they were a brand. But no, a few people do them.

And do all biscuits have names? What do you call them ones with two sliced of shortbread and a bit of chocolate in between?

They are scary biscuits.

There's a book called A Nice Cup of Tea and a Sit Down by Nicey and Wifey and it tells the story of biscuits, where each variety comes from and the different categories. It's one of the few food books I don't have but I've seen it and it's cool.

I think if you're of an age where you remember the heyday of the biscuit (before it became socially acceptable to put the individually wrapped and utterly soulless chocolate bar on a plate and call it hostessery) then you'll have different biscuits for different people.

My grandmother - the original and true Kate P was a fan of the ascetic bally biscuit - the Lincoln (Cream) and my grandfather occasionally had a packet of extravagant sugary lemon puffs in his pocket.

They are doing a haka I think: it is their culture

Jacobs Jaffa Cakes are better than anyone else's especially better than those moon-food McVities ones

I think authorities are still divided over whether Jaffa CAKES count as biscuits. Unless you want to bring a p.ie-like ruin on our little community I'd think twice before presenting such divisive views as statements of fact.

At the very least, you'd have gone off-topic.

Book? There's a whole feckin website on the all-important topic of tea and which biscuits go with which. Féach ar sin:



Watch and learn, it is the gospel truth on tealogical matters.

Jacob's Goldgrain would be a delicious dunkable favourite of mine. The chocolate is gorgeous on them.

I'm a cookie man myself, but I guess we already knew that.

I used to make chocolate and peanut cookies that were fantastic.

I'm also fond of a chocolate rich tea.

Could there really be a copyright on a type of 'biscuit'? Or would it be called a trademark? Wouldn't it be like getting a patent for a particular type of weird sandwich you'd make yourself at home?





+ milk: mmmm

Well, I bet Woody, Sniffer and John prefer chocolate biccies to Bonio.

Those chocolate animal biscuits don't taste as good now as they used to - the base used to be quite short but isn't any more, in the same way that the Twix base used to be buttery (you know what I mean!) and shortbready but isn't anymore.

And Bonios have gone downhill too. They don't have that chewy light brown one anymore.
