Nicey replies: Thanks Lynn,

Pink Wafers sighted a year before my birth, and close to pigs, which somehow lends your account extra weight.

Nicey replies: Not sure exactly but wafers (and pink (carminic acid) for that matter) in general are old school biscuit technology so you'll be fine with them in the 1960s.

Nicey replies: Morning Dorian,

Yes its the little bit of desiccated coconut in the Nice that causes all the problems, certainly for me as historically I didn't much care for it. Personally the Nice and the Pink Wafer are my most non-favourite of biscuits, and whilst I could bring myself to talk about the pink wafer in the book I couldn't quite make it to the Nice. I do like the way Fox's call their biscuits 'Nice Tasty' though, I think that creates a lovely atmosphere on the biscuit shelf in our local high street shop which they frequent.

Having said that, I do get somewhat tense around the Nice biscuit now as my attitude to coconut in biscuits has mellowed over the years, and I suspect that I may possibly get on with them having now reached my forties. Perhaps we could make a particularly dreary documentary where a film crew arrange for me to meet a pack of Nice biscuits in a safe and supportive environment. There would be lots of phone calls back and forth for a month and a half leading up to the meeting, and on at least two occasions I would suffer some kind of emotional set back that would make me call the whole thing off. Eventually I would get talked round by Wifey using some rubbish about the YMOS being in danger of never trying a Nice biscuit. Finally the moment would arrive but I wouldn't allow the cameras in, and afterwards a slightly tearful me would say that I would be prepared to have them in the house providing they stayed in their own separate tin.

Anyhow I think they are a shortcake biscuit with coconut in them.

Nicey replies: Kate,

I'm not sure why I have got it in for the Nice biscuit (apart from the coconut which I don't like and its daft name), but I think its healthy to have a nemesis or two.

As for all that Custard that deserves the erecting of some sort permeant commemorative monument and possibly a small visitor centre with a coach park. We haven't bagged any Irish Custard but I've been told about it. I once did an interview on Irish radio's Ray D'arcy show whilst somebody in the studio made some which was exciting. Apparently Irish Custard Powder is made by the same people who make Birds, so maybe they make it a bit differently for Ireland or it is exactly the same and its wishful thinking. Given your Mum-in-law's experience I wouldn't like to push that last point too far.

Nicey replies: Well my first impressions are that the Pontardawe music festival is certainly a highlight in the tea and sit down calendar if not the music one. Sue Northcott mailed us to say that she knocked up a highly successful batch of Rice Krispie Cakes (Buns if your Irish) especially for the event.

As for Pink Wafers you are right to point out this unusual tendency. Perhaps it was a peer pressure thing with the most respected artist picking them first and causing a small and localised fad.
