Polish Jaffa Cakes Multireview Review
Nicey replies: Hiromi,

Glad to see that you have settled down in Korea and are busily finding new biscuits. As you point out not only are those pies not big but they don't appear to be pies either. We are very lucky to have your Japanese view of Korean biscuits based on your working knowledge of British biscuits. I feel that one day there might come to pass a course of events that would see you at least saving the world using your specialised knowledge that is a Japanese view of Korean biscuits based on your working knowledge of British biscuits.

The smashing orangey bit in the middle of the jaffa cake to give it its full technical name is as you suspect actually jam. Industrial jam at that. Which means that the inclusion of the Jaffa Cake in the new edition of the Oxford English Dictionary with the definition as

a sponge biscuit with an orange-flavoured jelly filling and chocolate topping
is wrong on two counts and very obviously throws doubt on the validity of every other piece of information held in it.

As for Wifey she gave her left arm today, as she gave blood. She tells me she had a cup of tea afterwards and three Crawfords Gingernuts, although Digestives and Custard Creams were also on offer.

Nicey replies: Good work biscuit correspondent Miura. We are now better informed on possible military uses for Korean biscuits. They do seem to have borrowed heavily from the Wagon Wheel in overall concept though

Japanese McVities Digestives Review
Nicey replies: Hiromi,

Yet another exotic Japanese Digestive. I wonder if chocolate digestives would fair better? The layer of chocolate might help stop them going soggy?

Nicey replies: Good Morning Hiromi,

Don't you worry, I think any FM Radio station in the UK will be just as surprised and thrilled to get a random delivery of unusual Japanese biscuits. As you say most of them seem to have a Black Thunder of their own (I think they are all part of the same company). Anyway Essex is next door to us and it's where I was born, and I have lots of family there so that's all fine. I'm quite excited about how confused and puzzled they are going to be! It's a wonderful thing you have done and you should be very proud.

A big NCOTAASD Hoorah for you!

Japanese Black Thunder
Nicey replies: Hello Hiromi,

How we enjoy our cultural exchanges here on NCOTAASD. I'm impressed by your Black Thunder biscuits for many reasons.

First because of their excellent name which would be equally suitable as the name of an attack helicopter. Our local Radio station has a large sports utility vehicle which they bring along to local events which is also called Black Thunder - next time I see them I'll ask if its named after the Japanese biscuit.

Secondly the biscuit looks a bit recycled, as if made from other biscuits which have been smashed up for reasons I can only guess at. Then again it could also be a small piece of very tarmac road surface.

As for Otona-gai it seems very sensible that you have a word for this, and given that your biscuits are sold individually wrapped twenty at a time is not too outrageous. I suspect in the UK we would just limit ourselves to a special word for the person buying a case of biscuits.
