I have recently concluded that I am an extremely uncomplicated biscuit consumer.
Many (many) moons ago, I read: “A nice cup of tea and a sit down” by Nicey and Wifey (honest to grapefruit that is how they call themselves).
Anyhoo, I was cogitating my optimum biscuit choices as I was happily munching on a Garibaldi biscuit the other day and I realised that my top 5, go to biscuits of choice are not particularly extravagant or interesting to others…though now I am thinking about it, maybe that is in part self-preservation of always knowing you aren’t going to have a great deal of competition for any given biscuit type.
So, in no order…
- Rich Tea (Thick Tea for preference, but generally you cannot find the things for love nor bloody money)
- Fig Rolls
- and Rusks.
So basically, the only competition I am likely to find is in the under three and teething set. I can take them… I am certain, though some of them are extremely persistent in the face of biscuit delights. Also, Pensioners…don’t think I’d win there, though I could probably proffer the one available Pink Wafer at a Church Coffee morning and make a break for it with one of my biscuits of choice. I have noticed it’s the quite ones,, who get there early and then casually nip around all the tables and pilfer the pink wafers before anyone else gets a look in.
I’m not much of a chocolate biscuit fan… I do rather enjoy a Lemon Puff or on occasion a Jammy Dodger, possibly even a Ginger Nut. But for the most part I refer back to my optimum choices more often than not.
