Bahlsen Hit Review
|Interesting! HIT biscuits are both popular and rather easily obtainable in Tidewater Virginia - probably due to the international tastes of the many military families which populate this area. Both the vanilla and chocolate biscuit varieties are excellent with a nice cuppa, but are stellar with a nice mug of hot cocoa. Wretched excess, to be sure, but quite lovely!|
Many people leave a small amount of tea in the bottom of their mug or cup. Do you think this is appropriate behaviour?
|Nicey replies: Will,
Terrific question well done.
Only appropriate if drinking tea from a tea pot made with loose leaf tea with out a tea strainer, or possibly with a strainer but the tea is a bit ropey and finely divided. Otherwise it is simply wasteful.
||My friend was left traumatised by a disturbing incidence with his Personal Work Mug|
(liked particularly for its "largeness" , "heaviness" and the fact it was "mine, damn it!!")
We hired a new chap and he took to this mug with vigour. Not a good start by any means....
He then proceeded to take a DAILY cup of BOVRIL and hot water in it! And without washings up in between!
The lovely cup became smutted inside with Bovril stains. Even a hardened soul wished not to approach too closely should they see the horror and smell the stench.
My friend bought a new mug.
I think Bovril and Hot Water drink is not a pleasant quaff.
A tip-off for those biscuit fanciers trying to track down the long lost but much loved Barmouth biscuit. I suggest you try a packet of Fox's Sunbreaks - the Barmouth reincarnated. Dark around the edge, golden in the middle, and melt-in-the-mouthy when eaten. Mmmm.
Is the shop still open?
|Nicey replies: We've had those, they are quite nice, and quite unique. Never had a Barmouth though. I'll see if some of the Barmouth seekers agree with you.|
Bahlsen Hit Review
Great work on the site, I've been following it for about 8 months now. It was great to see you on Richard and Judy, and I've been quoting you regarding Jaffa Cakes.. "The clue's in the name".. I got a biscuit barrell for my birthday (with a proper knobbly handle on the lid and all..), with lots of fantastic biscuits, including Golden Syrup, Golden Crunch and Caramel Crunch as well as Jaffa cakes and Maryland Cookies.
Anyway, recently people have been asking where they can get Prince biscuits in the UK, and you've suggested "Hit" as an alternative, but I have found these elusive biscuits here! These rare specimins come from that most strange place known as Lidl. That's right, that odd, cheap, forgien supermarket sells Prince biscuits, as well as some other French biscuits. I bought a pack, as when we go to France, I make sure we get some as they are brilliant. By the time we had driven the 5 miles or so home, I had eaten half the pack.
Well, so long, and thanks for all the biscuits,

|Nicey replies: Yay Peter,
Thanks for the Lidl tip off, we have one about 20 miles away, but my Mum who lives in South Wales has one dead near by so we raid that whenever we are there.
