I have a colleague who disagrees with me on what should be a very clear subject. I was hoping you and your crack team of biscuit related matter gurus could help out.
My colleague believes whole heartedly the humble Kit Kat is a biscuit rather than a chocolate bar. Surely he is mistaken or possessed.
Please clarify and allow the turmoil to cease.
|Nicey replies: Nestle themselves are deliberately evasive on this whole area. As I have said before I consider the KitKat a transitional form right on the boundary between chocolate bar and biscuit, sort of the Archaeopteryx of the biscuit/chocolate world.|
|Love your website - but when drinking tea one must just use leaf tea, a china pot (preferably a Brown Betty) and tea strainer. Also one must use the best bone china tea cups with handle facing east and stir clockwise with silver teaspoon. |
I love a good cuppa with a nice crisp digestive (only McVities will do), and not dunked. This is the best comfort food and was used by my mum and now by myself to solve all manner of problems.
All the best, Ruthie
|Nicey replies: Possibly crossed some sort of line here between the particular and the quite scary.
I know this doesn't go with a nice strong cup a tea, but do you know where I could get tinned whole corn on the cob (not the kernals). Years ago (20) I used to be able to get them at Londis - they came four in a tin. They are so yummy, perhaps once you found where you could get them you could set up a supply chain (just a thought/incentive).
Kind regards. Sara Lea

||These wonderfully spicy ginger biscuits are so thin they can be eaten like crisps, which is great. They also make you think of Scandinavian Christmases and Pippi Longstocking. You can buy them in IKEA and in small delicatessen shops that think they're being really clever and exclusive until someone points out that you can also pick up a pack of the wafer thin delicacies in the home of crap flat-pack. Anna's ginger thins have similar levels of structural integrity as an IKEA folding chair but taste much better. At a push they also sound a bit like a porn film.|
love Anna (not *the* Anna though...sadly)
Bahlsen Hit Review
|I read your review on Bahlsen Hit biscuits with interest. Before starting university I spent two years working part-time at Iceland, that well-known high street freezer chain and every so often we would receive a lorry-load of Hit biscuits to sell off cheap. This would invariably cause quite a stir as it seems that in the same way one either loves or hates Marmite, Hit biscuits also appear to divide the populace in a similar way. Some customers and staff could not seem to get enough while the rest appeared to find them intolerable - on more than one occasion I have heard an 's' placed before the name of the biscuit to indicate this! I fell into the former group and used to look forward to the day we got our Hit shipment as they were rather an exotic change from my usual milk (not plain) chocolate digestives.|
|Nicey replies: Yay, for buying biscuits in Iceland. The keen biscuit buyer should add this to their repertoire, as they usually have some splendid deals. Mind you Hit are on offer 2 packs for 99p at Morrisons.|
