Tunnocks Wafer Review
|When I'm not at university, I live in a lovely old farmhouse, with a log burning stove |
and very comfy chairs.
During the winter the larder of this house get very cold and hence, the biscuits we
keep in it get cold too. The major problem with this is that when I go to bite into a
cold tunnock's caramel, a super-sharp piece of wafer nearly always peirces the
gum just above the back of my front teeth! My folly causes pain for a day or two, i need to remember to bite sideways if in
doubt, going with the 'grain' on the biscuit.
Whilst I'm emailing, whats the verdict on the honeycombed 'echo' bar? my girlfriend
adores them but I'm not so keen.
|Nicey replies: Yes chilled biscuits can present special hazards to the unwary eater, thanks for bringing up this important issue. Caramel especially presents problems turning from a viscous gloop at room temperature into a brittle crystalline shards at fridge temperature (>=4 degrees C). I suspect that its the caramel layers in the Tunnocks that have been giving you problems.
As for the Fox's Honeycomb Echo I have to say that there is so much chocolate in an Echo bar that it is difficult for me to form an opinion on them. I think that Honeycomb was slightly grittier than the white chocolate Echo, and if my memory serves me correctly actually had a slightly higher proportion of white chocolate. Perhaps this is what is appealing to your girlfriend.
||Please will you advise me the name of the biscuits which are similar to the appearance of Party Rings but without the hole in the middle. They were round, iced biscuits with pink, yellow or brown icing. Each biscuit may be completely iced with the same colour or have a combination (striped) of two or three colours.|
Please let me know if you remember the name and whether they are still available to buy.
|Nicey replies: I know what you mean but can't think of the name, didn't they also come in round cornered square shapes as well? or am I imagining that..|

||For your interest, there is a Bhoco Biccy called a ChitChat, which is better than a timtam and a penguin. Most North Islanders should be familiar with them, but I could not find mention of them in the emails section.|
I wish you every luck in getting your hands on this NZ delicacy.

||Are Tea-Cosys sad?|
|Nicey replies: Mark,
No they are not, unless of course they are ill fitting.
