    Didn’t they get a tax break as they claimed they were biscuits and not little cakes?

    Maybe they will be made to pay all the unpaid tax now. Financial crisis sorted in the uk now!

    The other way around. They proved they were cakes, not biscuits. The final proof was that biscuits go soggy as they age, cakes go hard….

    As ever, I defer to my grandad’s opinion, as he was one of the designers of the original jaffa cake:

    “Of course it’s a bloody biscuit”

    Lots of biscuits get harder as they age, it’s a load of cobblers.

    Most soft cookies, oat perkins, some jammie dodgers, some shortbreads…

    Thread needs “mahoosivejaffacaketrackworld – will I die” as the title.

    Can someone please send one to me in Australia?! I can’t find Jaffa cakes here, only disgusting imposter ones, that one giant one may just make up the serious Jaffa deficiency I am experiencing!

    Best thing about Jaffa cakes is when they are dipped in fresh espresso with a huge creme head on top. Simply Devine.

    Don’t think you’d get that one to fit in an espresso cup, well none of mine. I will try though, just for the sake of science.

    I’ve never seen the appeal of something the texture of stale cake with chemically-tasting ‘orange’ gel in the middle and a cheap and nasty chocolate-like covering…

    I have to say, I find Aldi’s Jaffa cakes far more palatable *dons flame suit*

    £7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    phew! if they were sensibly priced I’d be seriously worried about becoming morbidly obese. It’s like them pashmena fox forx and plastic santa cruz frames, I’ll sit here and drool over pictures of them on the tinterweb, then I’ll look at the price and think pffff no chance!

    “Of course it’s a bloody biscuit”

    unless you’re asked to pay VAT on them in which case obviously it’s a cake 🙂

    FAIL – it seems they are either a hoax or have not reached the north east yet.

    tried two tescos and an asda.

    Have a Tim Tam.

    Where are you? We’ve got “British” shops that have them but you’ll probably pay more than seven quid for them!

    Hmm. Massive Jaffa cake. Bowl of espresso. I could live out my “Borrowers” fantasy.

    None in my local “express” co-op, had to buy Turnocks Wafers instead… 😆

    It’s not up on the Tesco website yet either…

    However, it seems they are not one to miss a trick:
    clicky linky for tesco own brand version

    I have high hopes for this as if Jaffa cake lovelyness is directly proportional to size, then it should be awesome. You see the ‘mini Jaffa Cakes’ are rank. Normal Jaffa cakes are lovely. I shall have to prove the theory!

    Anyone actually managed to buy one yet? Or a hoax? Not listed on the McVitie’s website…

    Not a hoax – just got one from my local Morrisons. £7 tho! 😯
    Youngest daughters birthday on Tuesday and she loves normal size jaffa cakes so I’ve either got to get her to have her birthday tea early or somehow resist while it sits in the cupboard for two days!

    Tell her it’s for science & get it eaten!!!!

    That site has a link to their Facebook page, which has details of said cake.
