||Dear Mr. Nicey|
Please could I have your opinion on tucs- i am unsure as to where they fit into the world of biscuits. Although they are a savoury (similarly to digestives?) , they are a sandwich biscuit and one would hope they require no extra cheese. Also, they are just as pleasurable to dunk with tea as a rich tea. Martyn, however, maintains Tucs are just a poor man's meal and cannot be compared to sweet treats....
|Nicey replies: The Tuc is a salty cracker, and as such sits in the Cracker circle in the venn-diagram of cakes and biscuits. Hope this helps.|

My friends and I all remember a biscuit from our youth (not just the one biscuit, obviously, but a variety of biscuit) that hasn't been seen in the shops for a while but none of us can remember what they were called. We were hoping that with all your biscuit expertise you might be able to help us and possibly remember its name. The biscuits were:
- chocolate filled
- decorated with a little cartoon face/eyes/other facial feature
- they came in a small lunchbox-sized bag (similar to iced gems)
Does anybody know what they were called or if they are still in production?
Your help with this matter is muchly appreciated,
Nicola Mollat (and friends)
|Nicey replies: Well as there is a bunch of you, that sort of rules out hallucination, so perhaps such a thing existed. I however have never had one. |
||CAN I HAVE A NICE CUP OF TEA AND A BANANA PLEASE NICEY? JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE I WOULDN'T BE BREAKING ANY RULES.|
|Nicey replies: Of course, as you're pregnant you have a license to eat anything at any time and I'm sure biscuits will get a look in at some point.
When the Wife was pregnant with younger member of staff No 1, she had a big Spinach craving, and I was sent to get the only Spinach growing in the garden, a gnarly looking specimen which randomly had appeared from some compost placed under the privet bushes in the front garden. This was boiled up and she had it on toast, Hoorah!
I should like to add my dissatisfaction at fruit teas to that of Penelope Reid. Fruit teas smell *amazing*, prompting you to ask the owner of the cup for a taste. However, they inevitably taste like they've been watered down with approximately three million parts water to one part fruit and, like a similarly diluted homeopathic remedy, totally fail to satisfy.
|Nicey replies: Yes and I have just realised that I can use the 'fruit' and the 'tea' icon for this.
||Fruit tea! whats the point of that then? my workplace canteen is only offering flavoured teas at the moment. They offer no caffeine or dunking possibilities, so how can these tepid ribena like offerings possibly share the nomenclature of the honest cuppa? Any ideas? I believe we should|
implement tighter controls on the use of the word 'tea' in descriptions of warm water based beverages to avoid further torment.
Your Humble Follower,
|Nicey replies: You're right of course|
