    Who doesnt love playing soggy biscuit with their mates

    Apart from myself …

    I do like dipping ginger snaps into a big cup of tea but only because they stop snapping,…and breathing..and..oh wait did I murder that ginger?

    Biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience involves the auld stalwart Digestive into a cup of Bewley’s tea. Simple but still the best.

    (unless we can include chocolate bars, then a Wispa for dunking as the middle melts first creating a mushy chocolate straw).

      As a fellow Bewley’s devotee, do you also suffer shocked looks and screams of ‘Heresy!’ when asked by either the Lyons or Barrys brigade to pick sides?

      1. Paul

        A lot of people don’t even know Bewleys is an option, “but… isn’t that a café?” Having family from Cork makes the Barrys-snub that much more painful. Another jackeen with his fancy tea :-)

    I do not understand biscuit-dunking. It ruins the biscuit and the drink.

        I am racist against chocolate biscuits on this side of the world. Your chocolate is rubbish.

    Biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience involves a Penguin into a cup of strong tea. *top tip” nibble one corner from each end of the Penguin and use the biscuit as a straw for the tea…… then bite into the biscuit. Thank me later.

    biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience is a biscotti into a glass of Vin Santo

    Biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience involves a chocolate biscuit cake into a cup of double cream.

    Just the one cup, I’m trying to watch my figure.

    This isn’t good for you.

    Also, €4.75 for a milkshake with a single mikado on top!

    ‘Biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience involves a Arrowroot Biscuit into a cup of tea made from collected rainwater that dripped through the roof of our atrociously built new apartment block, it was 2009, times were bad, so pleasure had to be drawn from such everyday simplicity. It was a simpler time, a happier time, a more innocent time.

    Biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience involves a cantuccini into a cappuccino. Why?
    1). It softens the cantuccini, reducing the risk of shattering your teeth (something a Mikado would never do).
    2). Notions
    3). It doesn’t leave biscuit-remains at the bottom of the cup, which are worse than Hitler.

    Biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience involves a diabetic slump into a cup of shame.

  11. Joe cool

    Biscuit wise my most pleasurable dunking experience has to be a pint of fresh milk and a pint of fruit shorties. Nooooom

  12. ahjayzis

    Biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience involved the low key, underrated beauty that is a Bourbon Cream, truly the premier, most regal and delicious of bickies, into a cup of Bewley’s Dublin Breakfast tea left to brew for far too long for that superior hangover-destroying strength and flavour.

    1. A ginger nut into milky tea – the ginger nut turns in a gooey caramel like sludge. Effortlessly slips down the hatch.
    2. The purple snack into milky tea- technically not a biscuit but also technically a biscuit. One side/end has a thicker layer of chocolate than the other. Fun.

    Biscuit-wise Chocolate Fingers (biscuits ….) dipped into hot tea …… slurp slurp …. melted moments ….

          1. MoyestWithExcitement

            Fine. I’ll set up my own country, with hookers and blackjack, and no currants, and lots of Futurama references.

          2. MoyestWithExcitement

            Of course. And by hookers I mean rugby players. They can hand me the blackjacks. I mean, just as long as they don’t play rugby.

          3. MoyestWithExcitement

            Grand. As long as we get at least one particularly hefty one who can tick his winky between his legs we’ll all be happy.

  15. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

    Speculoos into a nice, properly made, frothy cappuccino. I prefer scooping the froth with a biscuit to dunking it, to be brutally frank.

    Biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience involves a big dirty custard cream into a cup of a single plum, in perfume, floating in a mans hat…..

    If no one gets this Simpsons reference I’ll just show myself out…….

    But in all honesty can’t beat any biscuit dunked dunked into a cup of tae and then you horse the whole thing down.
    Except those shite cafe noir biscuits, down with that sort of thing.

    Biscuit-wise my most pleasurable dunking experience involves a McVities Hobnob into a cup of hot chocolate.
