I just have to let you (and through you, the world) know that the finest combination known to man, or at least to me, is two plain chocolate digestives sandwiched together with peanut butter (crunchy, if poss). Obviously, for the avoidance of chocolatey fingers, the biscuits should be arranged with their chocolate-covered sides pointing inwards.
Incidentally, I share an office with someone who assures me that cheese and chocolate spread is a divine combination, and she has even gone so far as to bring me in cheese and chocolate spread sandwiches in an attempt to demonstrate this 'fact'. Whilst this is an obviously misguided approach, it does lead me to wonder if a similar choc digestive strategy could be employed with cheese as the filling ...
best wishes, as ever,

I tried your pretty icons and was disppointed that the cheese one came up with no matches. As one who is always on the lookout for good cheese biscuits, I think you should add Carrs Cheese Melts to the site. They are indescribably good to eat, and the non-cheese ones are pretty good too.
|Nicey replies: No matches for what? There are plenty of matches to emails that mention cheese or might be about to mention cheese. I'm not sure if we are ready to be drawn into cracker reviewing as yet, although its not a huge leap of the imagination I'll grant you.|
Tunnocks Wafer Review
My first time on your site and I read the Tunnock's wafer review with great interest as I believe my
scottish partner Alan must have contributed considerably to the 4,000,000 consummed each week over the years. Every morning before leaving for work he makes the same packed lunch. Two cheese (extra mature cheddar) sandwiches on Warburton wholemeal bread, one banana and two plain chocolate Tunnock wafer biscuits. One for his 10.00 am break and one for his lunch at 1.00 pm. I try to get him to vary his diet - but he he says "You know where you are with a cheese sandwich and a Tunnock biscuit. I can't cope with any hassle first thing in a morning!"
|Nicey replies: You could try him with the occasional pear I suppose.|
Just finished the book which I loved and thence to the site which is even better. Forgive me if I'm asking a question that's been asked before but the Guvnor has asked me to ask you what has happened to her favourite Hovis Digestives. Being the main shopper of the house [I drive,she doesn't] I have normally managed to find a pack or two lurking around on my travels but not for some time. Even when on the endangered list they always seemed to make guest appearances around Christmas so I was fairly confident of picking some up recently but never saw any,anywhere. In the end I had to buy a huge plastic box of crackers to secure half a dozen Hovis which were liberated and returned to where she says they truly belong...with the proper biscuits.
I have to confess that I'm not a great Digestive fan but I do like an HD. Is my search in vain ? Have they gone the same way as the Abbey Crunch ?

|Nicey replies: Brian,
I'm not aware of any supply issues around the Hovis Digestive, but I think it was about six months ago since I bagged a pack. Perhaps other people have some sightings?
||Biscuits or cakes?|
I asked a friend when we were discussing the contentious issue of the jaffa cake and she said that she thought oatcakes could f*ck off. I felt that this was a little harsh and asked other friends what they thought. None were kind to the oatcake. One even said that they were a pariah forced traverse the shopping aisles in their oaty doom. Another said that oatcakes were flapjack zombies.
Does anyone else like oatcakes? Am I alone?
Cake or biscuit?
|Nicey replies: Yes that was a bit uncalled for. Still the Oatcake can be quite confusing as it looks like a biscuit and is called a cake, but clearly is really some form of cracker. There are sound historical reasons for all of this, mostly to do with living in Scotland a very long time ago. Still I like oatcakes but tend to munch them with some nice grapes and some tasty cheese and a nice glass of wine. Once again this is plainly not their original intended purpose.
So in summary, Cake or Biscuit?, no Cracker.
