|I read your review of oreo's. I am pleased that you seem to understand america :). Statistically speaking, americans are fat and commercialized. We love our oreos almost as much as some "love" their heart attacks.|
Thanks for reviewing oreo's! they may be the essence of over-proccessed-commercial-american food, but they're really tasty, especially with milk.
Devon (not the province... thats my name....)
p.s. (i was kidding mentioning the province... you're not stupid)
|Nicey replies: Thanks for that. Actually Devon is a county, famous for dairy products, milk, cream, butter and so on. Cream teas are a feature of Devon's cuisine, consisting of scones spread with jam and clotted cream and a big pot of tea, epic!|
Nice site! Your review of the oreo was an interesting read. Down here in New Zealand the Oreo is only just starting to appear on our shelves, perhaps due to a plot on the part of the mulitnationals: When I was in the states a few years ago I had an orea milkshake and wanted more. Lucky for me the local Dennys had these shakes on the menu. Then macdonalds's introduced oreo mcFlurrys which I took a liking to.
Another Oreo fact: The DC comic's character Martian Manhunter has a irrational addiction to oreo cookies.
I find that oero's themselves are a bit rich so I don't buy them much, but I think the problem is that when I do get them I eat 5 or 6 at once. Do i have an addiction and where can I seek help for it?
Bye for now.

|Nicey replies: Darren, I suggest you try eating some sensible biscuits, some of your local Griffins ones should do nicely, closely followed by some Oreos. This should help clear your mind.|
I saw an advert on the television some months ago for a dog biscuit that actually cleans dogs teeth. After rushing out and purchasing some for my own dog 'norm' I found them to go down a treat. I, more often than not, leave my dental hygiene routine until I have had my first cup of tea (usually accompanied by an early morning biscuit such as the richT). Replacing my usual biscuit with a denture rasp could potentially save me a great deal of time.
Do you know if such an equivalent exists for the human market?
|Nicey replies: I can't think of a suitable one straight off. A mint flavoured, high roughage, low sugar biscuit might do the trick if such a thing could be made. Mind you they might be a bit horrid.|
||Thanks for your advice on our Biscuit Cup. We are indeed trying to sample all the biscuits in the cup but I fear the Abbey Crunch for example stood little chance due to its lack of availability in the Soho area. Clearly its far too holy for this seedy part of town.|
Jammy Dodger, Rich Tea and Hob Nob won their ties easily. The tie of the round saw The Bourbon narrowly beat the Custard Cream (but only after a replay, extra time and penalty shoot out). Unfortunately there was a travesty in Game 6 where the Breakaway beat the mighty Malted Milk due to some chocolate bias refereeing from the lady judges. Your advice on awarding good performance fell on deaf ears.
Here is the draw for the next round:
Match 1. Bourbon v Fig Roll
Match 2. Chocolate Hob Nobs v Gariballdi
Match 3. Chocolate Digestive v Jaffa Cakes
Match 4. Jammy Dodger v Digestive
Match 5. Breakaway v Ginger Nuts
Match 6. Rich Tea v Nice
Match 7. Hob Nobs v Shortbread
Match 8. Cadburys Boasters v Tunnocks Tea Cakes
|Nicey replies: Alas my fears for match 6 were manifested. Slapping a load of chocolate on some biscuits is a bit like sticking a soft-top on a Ford Escort, its not glamourous its still an Escort.
Abbey Crunch are a rare beast these days, they often turn up in little corner shops. In general it's good to visit such establishments as they often have a diverse and exotic selection of biscuits due to commercial and logistical forces we can only begin to guess at.
Hoorah for round 2. There are some tight matches there.
I've been on jury service for two weeks. Unable to leave the Jury room for 2 weeks for the whole day I would have expected some sort of biscuit provision to be made available, but no. Add to that the foul tea they served up and it all resulted in a very disagreeable two weeks. The original jury summons states that you must have a very good reason to forego jury service. I suggest that no biscuits and piss like tea is an amply good reason!
