All biscuits are ultimately disappointing, being neither a pie nor a packet of crisps
Well for starters, the (buttery) biscuit base has lost some of that good old digestive texture
A buttery biscuit base, you say….

@binners – love that vid – seen it a few times and always makes me smile.
Does strike me that some people have far too much time on their hands though.
As for disappointing biscuits – when someone offers you a chocolate digestive and then you realise they’ve bought the dark chocolate ones…

I’m quite partial to the odd chocolate digestive as a post ride recovery aid, so when I spied these new Double Chocolate digestives in the supermarket I thought it was too good to resist – chocolate digestives with extra chocolatey goodness, what could possibly be wrong with that?
Well for starters, the (buttery) biscuit base has lost some of that good old digestive texture and is a bit more like a round bourbon, then the chocolate chips in there are few and far between, so (post dunking) you just end up with a homogeneous mush without any nuggets of crunch or extra chocolatey bits.
Fox’s extremely chocolate chunky cookies are still the gold standard as far as I’m concerned, but I suppose I’ll have to finish this packet just to confirm my suspicions.Posted 4 years ago
A marshal was handing out Bourbons at the top of the grassy climb just before the Red Bull section at Mayhem on Sunday morning. Stupidly, I took one, and got a really slow time on the section as I was totally preoccupied with trying to consume the horribly dry biscuit.Posted 4 years ago
Still, nice gesture, just wrong biscuit.CougarSubscriber
My wife bought a pack of Oreo a couple of weeks ago. I explained that a divorce was inevitable if she ever brought such crap into the house again.
For a nation that consumes so much snack food, the Americans have some bizarre tastes. Oreos seem to be a national sensation, and they’re one of the most insipid excuses for a biscuit I’ve ever come across.Posted 4 years ago
