Nicey replies: Kate and Mike,

Very much one for the biscuit Venn Diagram. There has always been a element of flirting between the two camps of breakfast cereals and and biscuits. The farley's rusk for example likes nothing better than a good dousing of milk and mashing up with a spoon whilst Nestle have the cookie crisp cereal which emulates small bite sized choc-chip cookies. I would happily place the Weetabix in the union of breakfast cereals and biscuits albeit way over on the cereal edge for the following reasons.

1) It somewhat troublesomely describes itself as a biscuit due no doubt to its form factor and little else

2) That's it really

Don't be drawn into those tied old arguments about what goes stale and how as these are all merely circumstantial evidence and not un-yeilding and absolute laws.

We once did a project at university where we left some horse manure under an ultraviolet lamp in a cupboard for a week then looked at it closely. I hope your project is at least as important.

Nicey replies: Very probably. It just adds yet another problem to your life, the foreboding and tension as your pack of 50 teapot drip catchers begins to run out and you realise that you may have to face up to unmanaged teapot drips once more until you can replenish your supply.

Chris Fawcett
Nicey replies: Hoisted by your own petard sir. First sentence "There is no agreed definition within the industry of what constitutes a biscuit.." , it then goes on somewhat awkwardly to describe proper biscuits like the Digestives as "sweetened products", having thrown its net to include your Ryvita. It hardly serves as a definition of a biscuit either, merely a few tentative suggestions for what may or may not be in a bona-fide definition if such as thing were to exist.

Which is why popular consensus rules hands down in these situations.

We shall hold a democratic poll and let the people decide.

Susan Cook
Nicey replies: This is just exactly the sort of misinformed, delusional and slack thinking that needs nipping in the bud. It's a crispbread of course. We shall not even grace it with a list of reasons why it very obviously is not a biscuit.

Nicey replies: You seem to making very good progress towards a completely well balanced tea and biscuits outlook. The fruit cake will come in time. Ours is a very tasty and relatively light recipe not like those dark tarry masses that appear to have given it such a bad reputation in the US. I would have tough the Pacific North West is probably ideal fruit cake territory, providing it doesn't attract bears.
