    To me, shortbreads are the bagel of the buscuit world. I eat one and it like a rock just went in my stomach. I’m not just full, I feel like I’m gonna be full for the rest of my life!

    With a hot drink, Rich tea are very nice, or milk digestives.


    you can get tim tams in my local tesco. I just don’t rate them! your biscuit are like your beer…..SH1TE.

    Hmm milk malts are nice but fox’s chunkies milk chocolate cookies do it for me at the moment as they aren’t goughie like the supermarket’s ones that are supposedly freshly baked BS.


    That’s technically a caramel bar and not a biscuit !


    ginger biscuits


    I’m with mamadirt on this one!


    That’s technically a caramel bar and not a biscuit !

    It says on the wrapper “milk chocolate coated wafer biscuit”

    They wouldn’t lie to you.

    i like bourbons, but only ever eat them when you buy or get a tin of biscuits for christmas.

    mine would have to be chocolate fingers, but if that is considered confectionery i would go for Fox’s Chocolate Viennese

    Mr Krabbs you’ll probably love this website linky

    Jaffa Cakes, but then I’ve opened the whole cake/biscuit discussion.

    Premier Icon muggomagic

    there is no discussion. this matter has been settled in court (borrowed from wiki).

    Cake or biscuit?
    Under UK law, no VAT is charged on biscuits and cakes — they are “zero rated”. Chocolate covered biscuits, however, are subject to VAT, currently 15%. McVities classed its Jaffa Cakes as cakes, but in 1991, this was challenged by Her Majesty’s Customs and Excise and the case ended up before the courts.[9] This may have been because Jaffa Cakes are about the same size and shape as some types of biscuit. A question that the court asked itself was “what criteria should be used to class something as a cake?”

    McVities defended its classification of Jaffa Cakes as cakes. In doing so it produced a giant Jaffa Cake to illustrate that its Jaffa Cakes were simply miniature cakes.[citation needed]

    McVities argued that a distinction between cakes and biscuits is, inter alia, that biscuits would normally be expected to go soft when stale, whereas cakes would normally be expected to go hard. It was demonstrated to the Tribunal that Jaffa Cakes become hard when stale. Other factors taken into account by the Chairman, Mr Potter QC, included the name, ingredients, texture, size, packaging, marketing, presentation, appeal to children, and manufacturing process. Contrary to a commonly held belief, whether something is considered a ‘luxury item’ is not a test for VAT purposes.

    Mr Potter ruled that the Jaffa Cake is a cake. McVities therefore won the case and VAT is not paid on Jaffa Cakes


    oh!! I just remembered the mighty Jammy dodger!


    Carrs or Jacob Water Biscuits. 😀

    choccy hob nob

    discussion over


    I have no favourite biscuit – they’re all good


    Fig Roll
    Choccy hobnob
    Custard Cream


    I’m with Ton on this one – Tunnocks Caramel Waffers all the way.

    Oh, and Abernethys, of course.


    Milk chocolate Hob Nob for me

    Premier Icon chakaping

    Up until last week I was all about the plain chocolate Hob Nobs, but then a wonderful thing happened and I discovered Fox’s Millionaire’s Shortbread.

    The way the caramel centre liquifies but holds in place to be eaten after a dunk in my tea is a taste sensation.

    Second ton and dave_aber on the scrumptiousness of the Tunnocks Caramel but they should probably be classified as more of a chocolate bar than a biscuit. Next fave would have to be jammy dodger or plain chocolate digestive.

    Reckon the key test as to whether it’s a biscuit or not is whether you could eat 2 or 3 with a mug of tea. Dodger or digestive yes, Caramel no.

    I would also propose for nomination another top Tunnocks comestible – the mighty tea cake


    ‘At the moment I’m loving a biscuit’

    What on earth have you been doing the rest of your life? I can’t imagine life pre-biscuit tbh.

    Party-rings or Anzac (prefered for dunkers) and I’m anyone’s.

    Just like me, all the best things started in the 80’s


    There’s some right poncy nancy-boys on here – what with all your girlie biscuits.

    The only thing I might have with my mug of tea is perhaps an extra teabag.

    I bet you all pass the biscuits round on bone china plates and stick your pinkies out when ‘sipping’ your tea – pah


    not eating biscuits with your tea makes you a ponce. I bet you like your tea in one of those funny shaped mugs served by some italian fella in costa or starbucks, and it’s probably a fruit tea.

    my tea is served in a dirty mug, and biscuits are straight out of a ripped packet. i don’t even use the pull tab!


    Custard creams mmm, One of my faves but i cant find them anymore is pink wafers, Jammy dodgers were nice but overrated now 🙂

    Premier Icon PePPeR

    Mr Krabbs to be the real man you’ve got to have opened the packet of biscuits with your trusty pen knife, not with these poncy rip pulls they try and fob us off with these days!


    The mostest chocolatiest biscuit ever!!!! Always taste better with a good strong cup of Yorkshire Tea

    Oreos -urrgghhh

    Any kind of all butter shortbread please 😀
