Richard Fisher
Nicey replies: Yes Richard I see your problem. This is a much more common problem than you may think.

You are however in a good position at least this particular individual buy's his share rather than nothing at all, choosing to ponce all his biscuits from you. There are really only two ways out of this, persuade them to buy something different or grow to like Bourbons.

Lets take the first. A program of biscuit therapy and analysis. Expose them to other sorts of reasonably priced chocolate based biscuits and suggest they could buy them next time round. The Maryland Double Choc shouldn't be too much of a leap for them. This might break their buying cycle. Also try and find out what it is that is so compelling to them about the Bourbon, you may have to go back to early childhood memories here. Perhaps, they will recall another biscuit with similar emotional resonance, and they could get those next time.

Finally as you know I am fairly ambivalent towards the Bourbon myself, however, if you do have to eat them aim for a quality brand like Crawfords. We had some Elkes Bourbans last week and they were very poor. Maybe if you insisted on nice Bourbons you may grow to like them or they may find it too much hassle tracking them down, and choose something else.

Hope this helps.

Jammie Dodger
Nicey replies: Yes its the Saatchi and Saatchi influence on Jammie Dodgers at work here I fear. I have made my views plain on this before.

As for who they are dodging there is a very tall tale by 'Phil Tougher' in our readers feedback section, use the Jammie Dodger icon in the search area to find it.

I think the actual explanation is to be found in:

The Queen Of Hearts,

She baked some tarts,

All on a summer's day.

The Knave of Hearts,

He stole the tarts,

And took them clean away.

The King of Hearts,

Called for the tarts,

And called the Knave back home.

The Knave of Hearts,

Brought back the tarts,

And vowed he'd steal no more.

I assume the Knave had to do some dodging in order to carry out the theft.

Jaffa cakes
Nicey replies: I appreciate your dilemma but Jaffa Cakes are indeed small cakes. The problem does not lay with their classification, rather it lies with your own draconian rules. Simply extend them to include the very reasonably priced Jaffa Cakes, and possibly Pimms Biscuits which are like Cherry Jaffa cakes with white chocolate.

As you have expounded upon biscuit classification is a far from simple or trivial exercise, and so your own rules will need to reflect this diversity, if you are to fully embrace the world of tea time treats.

James Fussell
Rocket ScienceTea
Nicey replies: That's an inspired idea Jim. I don't think they would have to be too huge, and maybe next year we could make a set of things to print out to assemble your own advent calendar. A Rover assortment tin should provide the perfect filling. Yes it all definitely makes sense.

Sainsbury's Lemon Thin Review
Nicey replies: We didn't run into this problem as our natural instinct to scoff the lot straight from the packet saved us from any misfortunate biscuit tainting.
