Just like the title says, your
Top 5 Biscuits, for when you have time for a cuppa.
Don’t worry about the order, truth is one day you fancy a digestive, next day gagging for a custard cream and we will clearly argue over the Number One biscuit anyway.
(Also the one you can’t stand if you want to add it)
My Top 5.
1: Dark Chocolate Digestive
3: Rich Tea
4: Ginger Nut
5: Malted Milk
“No way” choice: those horrible pink wafer things grandmother’s pretend is a biscuit.
Oh, you did it, fantastic!
Ginger Nut, best timing dunked at 17 seconds and still held integrity.
(dunked in tea, not coffee, v. important distinction)
Bourbon, Choc cream and choc biscuit - no brainer.
Garibaldi - squashed fly biscuit!
Chocolate Digestive - but really just the dark choc as the milk one is just too sickly.
Regular Digestive, but only places just above a Rich Tea.
One to avoid - Wagon Wheel - just a sickly gloopy mess that is nowhere as big as you thought it was when you were a kid.
Thanks for the thread, Tamsin. I for one feel cleansed.
Did not expect to see those here but definitely delicious.
Possibly the pointiest of biscuits…
You swipe the strip of jam with your finger, then suck off the little pink tufts one by one. Delicious!
Digestive (also dark chocolate)
ETA: Huh, turns out you can’t do descending numbered lists on here.
Hobnob? One nibble, and you’re knobbled?
The two biscuits we miss since leaving England are Bourbon Creams and Penguins.
Uh oh… isn’t that confectionery? And let’s not even start on Jaffa Cakes.
It’s hard to
stop with Jaffa Cakes.
Dark Chocolate Digestive. (You are correct on this. Superior to the milk chocolate version, which is a little too sweet).
Honourable mentions: All-butter Shortbread. chocolate chip cookie, Choco Leibniz
No way- Party Rings (bleah), Blue Ribband(always stale)
I’m missing out on a whole world of nibbles. Down here “biscuits” are a completely different thing
Yeah, hideous things. Just pure hard sugar with something that is a distant cousin of a biscuit underneath.
I feel like we could well be delving into “what makes a sandwich a sandwich” territory but with biscuits.
Dammit, I’m so buying a whole assortment of biscuits tomorrow, there are some here I have half forgotten. Haven’t had a Garibaldi in years. Known as “Squashed Fly Biscuits” where I hail from.
@Purplecat and @politeruin, Party Rings are just tiles that look temptingly like biscuits but are in fact grout on cardboard.
They look more like scones though.
A scone (/skɒn/) is a baked good, usually made of either wheat or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent, and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often slightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash. The scone is a basic component of the cream tea. It differs from teacakes and other types of sweets that are made with yeast. Scones were chosen as the Republic of Ireland representative for Café Europe during the Austrian Presidency of the European Union in 2006, while the United K...
They are more like scones.
Scones smothered in gravy.
