The best biscuit in Britain?
There are three basic ingredients in biscuits – flour, sugar and fat. Tweak the ratio of these three basics, add a few bits and bobs and you end up with thousands of variations of tea’s favourite companion.
If you read all the other posts on this site – and I thoroughly recommend you do – you’ll already know I have faith in biscuits, they are a wonderful constant in life, with enough variables to always be there, whatever life throws at you.
Sadly, biscuits that have gone to the Great Biscuit Tin in the sky aren’t on the list – I’m sure you’ll join with me, before you cast your important vote, for a minutes silence to mourn the passing of the Abbey Crunch, the educated HobNob.
Please don’t even start moaning about Jaffa Cakes being cakes and not biscuits. The only reason McVitie went to court for a definitive judgment was so they didn’t have to pay VAT. Chocolate coated biscuits are subject to VAT, where as cakes are zero rated so you don’t have to pay any. Do you know anyone who actually thinks they’re cakes? Me neither.
