||Hi Tea 'n' biccy lovers,|
I was wondering what people thought about some tea bags my mum acquired called "Rocket Fuel". They are regular square bags but fortified with taurine (along with the usual caffeine). The idea, obviously, to get you on the go in the morning a lot efficiently than regular tea.
I found a brew with these bags was too weak (two bags allowed some flavour). I did seem to gain added vigour, but that could have been a "placebo effect".
There was a free sachet of "Rocket Fuel" coffee, which was very nice.
Any views about this product?
PS: favourite biscuit for dunking: Fox's Classic (Fox's ARE the biscuit kings!)
|Nicey replies: They have to put taurine in cat food or else cats go all wrong, that's why you shouldn't give them dog food as they will start to mis-function. So it must be vital ingredient in cats, a bit like tea is in normal human beings. Not sure I would be drawn to the stuff sounds like they are using grotty tea to make them.|

Ginger Nut Review
|We were sailing a small yacht from Falmouth to La Coruna in northern spain, with a crew of myself, my wife and a friend Ian, who being a northerner arrived complete with pint mug for his "propper cuppa", of which he had at least 8 a day.|
The problems with small yachts is that drinking water is limited and finite, our total capacity was 25 gallons, of which Ian got through 8 gallons in tea making alone, during the five day trip.
Arriving at 6.00 am in Spain, having crossed the awsome bay of Biscay, did we celebrate with Champagne? No fear, tea and ginger biscuits!
||Cool site. My ex-boyfriend had VERY specific tea making requirements. Milk in cup, but no sugar YET. Hold teabag against rim of cup and pour water over (trying not to burn fingers). Leave few minutes. take out bag, add sugar. I bung bag in cup, pour water, leave, bag out, milk and sugar in....and whenever I made it like that, he KNEW. How?!|
Does it taste different when made different ways? And I like the biscuits with the cows on them. Moo Moo biscuits I called them. :-)
I read your response to Lottie's question about sponge fingers... interesting response.
I am now curious to know your position on rusks, namely Farley's.
Perhaps you are already aware of the recent "will they" or "won't they" news furore about renaming the product upon which many of us, quite literally, cut our teeth....
There is also a school of thought that would like to see an end to sugary childrens biscuits altogether
So, what are rusks... biscuits or stale cakes? On which side of this biscuity fence do you stand (or sit)?
|Nicey replies: Yay Micheal,
Its a training biscuit isn't it. The moisture content would have us say its a biscuit. As rusks and their use with the young, our younger members of staff quickly rejected rusks in favour of the full on adult variety of biscuits such as a shortcake finger. Given the amount of sugar in a rusk there is probably little to choose between them. Of course good dental hygiene is of the utmost importance, as is a balanced diet.
As for changing the name name I think that will quickly see off the product line as the brand disappears. maybe thats what they are after? Who knows.
Tim Tam vs Penguin Review
|TIM-TAMS ARE EXACTLY THE SAME AS PENGUINS!|
(Although they have lots of flavours, I think)
When will you blind fools realise the truth?
|Nicey replies: They are in-fact very different, 'Vive la difference'.
