McVities Milk Chocolate Digestive Review
|Dear nicey and thewife,|
I've just had a really horrible meeting, the client was horrible to me and the biscuits were, once again, all those horrible fancy foreign ones (I like a nice chocolate digestive or Jammie Dodger). Anyway, after a good sit down and a cry in the cab on the way home, I then found your website. Hurrah! I don't feel depressed about my horrible meeting anymore, now I know that there are biscuit fanciers out there and the world is not a horrible place only full of horrible clients and nasty posh biscuits. Thank you for cheering me up so thoroughly. I'm going to have a nice cup of tea and a sit down now and I'll be right as rain. Lovely.
|Nicey replies: Hoorah! for you, proper biscuits are the way forward as any truly switched on company knows. Next time take a digital picture of their biscuit plate send it to us and we can all have a good laugh, Yay!|

||Hi there good sir,|
As the global fountain of biscuit knowledge, i pose you a single and quite important question:
Do non-chocolate bourbons exist?
Ive been having a fair tussle from housemates, who suggest that they don't, i however believe they do.
Your prompt turn-around of this matter would be highly appreciated.

|Nicey replies: There are of course other types of cream filled sandwich biscuits apart from the Bourbon, such as the Custard cream of course. There are even bourbon like biscuits which have a white cream filling, reported on by Pete Biggs and revealed to be used by the Civil service. These are of course not Bourbons but they do have ten holes and the correct 2:1 dimensions that we would expect.|
ANZAC biscuit Review
|Hi, Nicey. Regarding ANZAC biscuits, I was very interested to see these available commercially. I came across home-made Anzacs while staying with friends who had lived and worked in Nepal with an Aid organisation. They were part of an ex-pat community with Americans, Aussies, Dutch, Kiwis, etc, so until now I didn't know where the recipe came from. (Sounds like it was Down-Under!) The secret of these yummy biscuits is the use of BICARB in the bikkie-dough. They also have a good ratio of oats to flour, which for me makes the perfect biscuit.|
Love the site - I'm visiting daily now.
All best wishes,
Interesting to read Emma's note from Tajikstan because when I mentioned Tea Money to my (Welsh) husband the other day he said "Yes, and tea leaves floating in your tea means a visitor to the door." Could it be that when Tea came to Britain first from Asia the customs came with it?
|James E. Petts
what is the official NiceCupOfTeaAndASitDown.com line on gingerbread men? Cake, biscuit or mere confection?
yours most humbly,
James E. Petts
|Nicey replies: Regarding Gingerbread men, Gingerbread is a cake, despite wanting to be some kind of bread. By association this makes gingerbread men cakes. Certainly the ones baked locally are more cake than biscuit. However I do think that you would really need to make a case by case judgement as recipes vary so much.|
