    Although I do like the sound of that fig roll gang

      1. martco

        ooh there’s another one that Lidl do..

        they’re rectangular
        bottom base is a simple biscuit affair bit like a rich tea BUT the top is this utter inch thick (exaggerated a wee bit but you get the idea) slab of tempered chocolate you could use in a tiling project

        you can get them in both milk or dark (they’re best)

        1. Mickey Twopints

          Oh, yessssss!

          I know the ones, alright. Unfortunately, I now have to just admire them rather than enjoy them. Sometimes I pick up the packet and caress it like a lost love.

          1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

            Are you sure it’s the packet of biscuits you’re caressing?

          I love those lads. They also do a sort of rolled wafer dipped in dark/light chocolate that I am very fond of.

          Isn’t that just a Club Milk marto?

          Speaking of, where can I get my hands on an orange Club Milk? Betcha in the North as they’re still sort of 1970s up there.

          1. Mickey Twopints

            No, they’re nowhere near as sugary as a Club Milk. The dark chocolate ones are like a small bar of bitter chocolate with a piece of biscuit added as an afterthought. They’re delicious with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

          2. martco

            no @Spag a more simple but elegant yoke

            BUT your club milk got me thinking…

            anyone here remember the gaff on Auinger st. that used to sell “the broken bits” quality control failed gear from Cadbury’s & Rountree factories?
            no wrappers, scooped
            Club Milks which we’re just solid chocolate with some biscuit fragments inside, malformed Crunchie bars with a denser burnt honeycomb etc.

            oh yeah

    Fox’s chocolate rounds at Christmas and chocolate digestives the rest of the year.

        I wouldn’t turn a Jaffa Cake down, but it’s nothing to the majestic Fig Roll. Even the wrong ones which have ridges in them.

  3. Spaghetti Hoop

    Wouldn’t eat any of those. Shortbread fingers are obviously the best biscuits ever made on account of the bucket load of butter in each one. What it says about me: impeccable taste.

    1. missred

      I would eat all of them except custard creams and fig rolls, but in total agreement about a good shortbread biccy. I even used them as a cheesecake base once, mmm

        1. missred

          It was delectable. They have so much butter in them you have no need to mix in any of the melted stuff. Just smush them and press in the tin, then try not to scoop them up and scoff them as you make the cake

      1. Ian-O

        Good call on the fig rolls.

        Filled with a dead wasp so they are (look it up, they actually do contain dead wasps).

        Not sure what dead crawly the custard crams contain though?

        Anyway, its all balderdash, choccy hob knobs would be my favourite but I most certainly never lick the chocolate off, sure that’s just a hob knob you are left with!!!!

        1. Papi

          Garibaldis are known as squashed fly biscuits. By who, I have no idea, but it’s true, I swear it.

          1. missred

            Never had a garibaldi, but I don’t like currants or raisins in a biscuit so not missing anything.
            God I’d love a choccy hob nob right now….

      2. kellMA

        I hated custard creams as a child but have a newfound taste for them now in my 40s. The biscuits where i work are all the old stylee ones (CC, Bourbon, Marietta, Nice) so i guess it was just ongoing exposure that broke me down….

      Nathan Carter has ruined actual Wagon Wheels for life. Can’t look at one without that dratted song coming into mind

      1. Mickey Twopints

        Wagon Wheels are two slices of chipboard sandwiching a slice of melted foam insulation, all coated with a medley of axle grease and bat guano.

        1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

          Yeah. They were a real let-down when I revisited them as an adult.

          1. Mickey Twopints

            I’m fairly certain that trying to “P-P-Pickup a Penguin” can get you arrested these days anyway.

          2. missred

            There’s a new banoffee flavoured digestive from McVitie’s and the fake banana taste is so disgusting I would take the Angel Delight any day

    2. Bertie Theodore Alphege Blenkinsop

      There’s 14 in my ma’s family and 8 in my Da’s so i have millions of cousins.

      When i was a kid my granny handed out the easter eggs to all the cousins but to her horror she’d forgotten to buy me one.
      The following week she bought me a box of Wagon Wheels to make it up to me.
      I scoffed them all and now the very thought of them makes me nauseous….

        1. Bertie Theodore Alphege Blenkinsop

          I boycotted her funeral over it* but I’m okay now….

          * I didn’t

      Not an Irish biccie. Feck off with yer green tea. It’s something bland or nothing.

          1. johnny

            I get them here in K-Town-not really a biscuits/chocolate type-but very nice Bodger keep the old folks around here busy and engaged:)
            Bob Muller on live and dangerous at 11-link under papers-off grab coffee and but will skip the biscuits/cookies.

          2. millie st murderlark

            Are you the devil??? Matcha and chocolate are a match made in the seventh circle of hell.

          3. johnny

            White chocolate-its difficult explain just works-but I’m normally in training so i really avoid anything with sugar in it-like cookies/chocolates.
            I go K-Town few times a week for food/groceries and often grab these,but I’m far from an expert-guests seem like them a lot especially after some rare or exotic Cali weed:)

            ps-K-Town is little Korea-beside Empire State building, lots great restaurants/grocery stores,better quality than Chinatown-unless you fancy going Flushing.

          4. Spaghetti Hoop

            johnny – what and where the hell is “K-town” or are you just speaking from a movie script or something?

          5. Lash me

            Thanks Johnny

            I’ll know where to avoid next time I am in in NYC

            But of course it’s obvious you’d have a thing for the submissive diminutive Asian female

          6. Johnny

            Oh la la – they all start out like that :)
            Current one is a LA based director about as far away from your description as you can get.

        Oh Janet as my favorite contestants on Survivor always say-I’m not here make friends.
        Walking in west village it’s a throw away comment in response to a rather nasty one.

    LMAO (inwardly) 30 seconds after moving seat on the bus to get away from the woman chewing a toffee I read that as a ginger nut fan I really conform to type!

    1. Janet, I ate my avatar but I'm trying to stop
