Jammie Dodger Review
|A lad in our office has recently been trying to establish a link between the liking of Jammy Dodgers and the liking of Marmite, claiming that if you liked one, you inherently liked both.|
He claims to have picked up this information on the grape vine and despite being a Marmite hating Jammy Dodger eater himself, believes it to be true.
Results in our office have been inconclusive, can such a correlation exist?
|Nicey replies: That sounds like a perfect thing for a poll!
Bahlsen Hit Review
A colleague of mine, Linda (Swedish), and myself (Irish) were talking about favourite biscuits as, with another colleague (Hi Tricia!), we've started to buy packets to share at work (team building...). For many years now the memory of an addictive, cheap, absolutely fake, chocolate biscuit sandwich, smuggled in from some archetypical European country, has haunted me over the years. While wistfully describing this biscuit, Linda lit up: she too knew this biscuit! Moreover she felt sure the name was HIT: so named because of the buzz you get on first eating. But we wanted more: some confirmation that we weren't suffering false memory syndrome & feeding each other delusions dipped in tea; a picture would be proof, our own shroud of Turin. We then trawled the web, thinking our task would be futile but, against all our worse fears, we found your site. HIT was biscuit of the week! Amazing.
Linda's task for the weekend is now to locate a pack for ritual sacrifice.
|Nicey replies: An extra big Hoorah!! for all of us. Almost as rousing as that time somebody thinking about tea randomly choose to type nicecupofteaandasitdown into their browser and up we came, they were possibly even more impressed.|
I suggest the following for your poll section: -
You can tell a boss in a meeting because: -
- He/she makes sure everyone gets a biscuit of their choice democratically by spending quality time getting to know your preferences
- Passes the biscuits about, so although you may not get what you prefer, you get something
- Says it is too expensive to have tea and biscuits so you have to pay for them
- Grabs the biscuits, eats all of them while speaking or shouting, and his name is Gerard.
|Nicey replies: In general a good plan, number 4 is a bit specific though.|

|Nicey replies: Splendid! Mind you the younger members of staff can give the old granulated a bit of a hard time on the Weetabix.|
||Reading the message about the man who used biscuit wrappers as backing for artwork reminded of when i was at school, many years ago, and we used to have to cover our exercise books to keep them clean. I used to use the wrappers from chocolate covered shortcake biscuits from the tuck shop, and then put sticky-back plastic over to protect the wrappers. My teachers thought i was very strange, and i still am. Love the site, i spend many an hour laughing at the messages, keep it up.|
My fave biccies were made by Simmers, Choc chip gingers, mmmmmmmmm. They don't make them any more though. Sob sob.
|Nicey replies: Yes we had to cover our books which I never understood. It just seemed to be one of those senseless things designed to make you conform to the school regime. I always respected people who covered their books in random things so well done.
Simmers are now down to just one or two biscuits, mainly they make oatcakes now as 'Nairns'.
