Plain Chocolate Gingernut

Tuesday 16 Jul 2002

I was stunned to see these in the supermarket for the first time this week.

Those McVities chocolate engineers have done it again. I'm not big on plain chocolate, although judging from your comments it seems that plain chocolate hobnobs are rated higher than milk chocolate ones. That said this combination produces a very classy biscuit, almost an after dinner biscuit. They are also quite rich which has allowed them to put up a good fight.

I haven't tried these with coffee as I only tend to drink it once a month or so, but it would almost be worth making a pot to go with these.

Malted Milk

Saturday 12 Jan 2002

The Cow biscuit. Fantastic. Best biscuit graphics ever.

Look at it, its a got a big standing up cow and a little sitting down one. The skilled cow biscuit eater will be able to nibble off the outer bits of the biscuit to leave just the cows, which surely are the most delicious bits.

If I was some kind of sultan bloke I would no doubt have a harem of girlys nibbling the cows out of malted milk biscuits for me.

I was reminded, by biscuit enthusiast Mandy of the Sports biscuit which was very similar to the malted milk but has little stick people on them doing stuff like tennis or swimming.

Fig Roll

Saturday 5 Jan 2002

I'm humbled to be in the presence of such a legendary biscuit.

I've often thought that this is as close to spaceman food as the biscuit world has ever got, cause I'm sure you could live on these for months and that their high density and non-crumbly nature would lend themselves to use in the space program.

Now the fig roll I've shown here is a Jacob's fig roll which it self has undergone its share of changes over the years. They used to have ridges on the top which was no good as it lowered the fig to crust ratio, and these have now been sensibly removed. Also, I assume due to their slight curvature they have to be packaged in a plastic tray affair three to a section which I find irksome.

The classic fig roll for me will always the type that came in a little cardboard box with top open and covered in cellophane revealing the fig rolls all end on in one long stack. The biscuits themselves appeared to be sliced from one huge fig roll.

The Americans have something called a Fig Newton. These are knocked out by Nabisco, and have been tailored to American needs, by having the crust's structural integrity reduced to that of sponge cake so that they don't require chewing, and there by allowing the eater a high rate of ingestion.
