What's Your Favourite Biscuit?

Post by Rowls » Mon May 27, 2019 1:46 pm

I'm voting for malted milk. A classic that can't be beaten.

Top marks for taste, texture and dunkability.

A quiet word of remembrance though for the long lost "Lincolnshire Biscuit" which was, truth be told, a round and baubled malted milk.

What's your favourite biscuit (current or extinct)?

Definitely a top 5 biscuit but they do need a separate biscuit tin to avoid contamination. Nobody likes a custard cream that's got ginger nut dust all over it.

Haha ginger nut dust.

They’re a fine biscuit. But the major problem is 1 dunk in a cup of tea isn’t enough. But if you attempt 2 dunks trouble awaits. It’s one of life's major annoyances.

I enjoy a milk chocolate hobnob.

Honorary mention for ginger nuts, nice, malted milk, and along with a cup of tea, a slack handful of rich tea.

Apparently, the difference between a cake and a biscuit is determined by what happens to it when it goes stale.

Biscuits go soft when stale, cake goes hard.

They can call it a cake or they can call it a biscuit... but only if it stays on the table long enough to go stale will you know for sure.

Shortbread gets my vote. Though the issue is there’s too much naff fake shortbread around that doesn’t taste right, proper shortbread dunked in a good brew is the best.

A cheap custard cream is as good as a premium custard cream . Same goes for most biscuits.

But you're right about shortbread - quality ingredients needed for shortbread.

I’ve never had a milk chocolate digestive that comes close to a Mcvities.

Cadbury Shorties would be up there for me and Fox’s chunky chocolates.

When I was a lad I used to regularly pride myself on polishing off a full '2 row' pack of Custard Creams with one single brew.
