Nabisco Nutter Butter Review
|Happy New Year,|
I thought you might like to know that your current "Biscuit of the Week", the Nutter Butter, tastes even better if let out of any airtight container, and allowed to go stale for a few days. This makes the biscuits wonderfully chewy, which seems to compliment the peanut butter filling rather better than a crunchy biscuit. As an alternative, give them a good dunk.

The Wife sends her regards too.
||Dear Nicey and Wifey|
Firstly, happy new year, may it be blessed with many sits down and nice cups of tea. Just a quick message to ask, have you come across the McVities lemon and ginger digestives yet? A half eaten pack appeared recently in the works biscuit tin (usually bulging with Lidl's best) and have become a surprise favourite. Interested to hear your thoughts on the subject.
|Nicey replies: Yes we were sent some prior to their release in June. I was initially very, very, excited about these and possibly set myself up for a fall. I think I was looking for a much zestier ring to them than they delivered, and so overall I was a bit under-whelmed. Its obviously a very tricky line for McV to walk, too much unaccustomed flavour and people will be thrown, too little and it will be difficult to tell the difference.|
Wagon Wheel Review
I am writing to express my disappointment about Jammie Dodgers, made by Burton's Foods. Though heavily advertised using the gimmick of jam wrestling, involving TV adverts, top trumps cards, and flash games on a website, the actual bisuits are vile. Some ingredient has the effect of drying out my mouth while leaving a horrible aftertaste reminiscent of the morning after excessive drink and drugs.
One biscuit was enough to ruin the taste of a pint of tea.
Interestingly, Wagon Wheels are made by the same company and have the same unpleasent effect, so they must share the foul ingredient, whatever it is. I suspect it might be a presevative since the effect is rather like that of eating a lump of salt or possibly sulphur.
|Nicey replies: Felix,
Sort it out, these are classic biscuits, perhaps something else has shot away your taste buds over the festive season, or in the run up to it (excessive drink and drugs?).
Tim Tam vs Penguin Review
|Dear Nice Cup of Tea|
I currently have a kiwi living with me and he has introduced me to delights of tim tams (or penguins) andport. I had previously heard of tim tams and hot chocolate but this is something else.
Having bitten the corners off your tim tam you suck a shot of port through the biscuit and then eat it. It is a taste sensation and I would recommend it to anyone.
