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…

  • Garibaldi
  • Rich Tea (Thick Tea for preference, but generally you cannot find the things for love nor bloody money)
  • Fig Rolls
  • Nice
  • 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.

I am a nerd for ALL seasons. Ravenclaw...natch. I am a genderqueer Librarian who unsurprisingly likes reading...a lot. But I also love being outside too...sometimes even reading at the same time. Also animals, any and all of them. Never yet met one that didn't get on with me and vice versa. I do a couple of different voluntary jobs (animal charity related), I am a Brownie Leader and have recently completed my MA.
