Christ. I just read the article 'agreeing with Loz about children smelling of biscuits' Well there was a girl at my primary school who smelt of digestive biscuits, and highly so. She was poor and 'the girl you fancied' if you were being teased.
Although I cannot vouch whether or not she still has digestive hum, she is still poor and very ugly as I saw her in a local petrol station.
My mum thought I was mad for reporting of this odour phenomena, but now I feel vindicated and among friends.
Thank you all.
Thin Arrowroot Review
|Rather a slight upon a 'medicinal' biscuit methinks. Arrowroot biscuits were the prequel to modern treatment for diarrhoea, often caused by poor diet or bad water in centuries past. Like cornflour arrowroot is a good thickener and less likely to form concrete 'stools' than say kaolin. They also make a good 'dipping' biscuit and, as you should know, don't disintegrate in your tea. They might also toughen up your teeth if you are prepared to take the challenge - dry. Whilst they may not be the most flavoursome biscuit, with a rather earthy, ginger taste, the texture is more satisfying than say a rich tea biscuit for those of us with real teeth.|
|Nicey replies: I wouldn't have thought that the conditions in the human gut would not have been favorable to creating the starchy arrowroot colloid as the unraveling of the molecules in the starch grains requires higher temperatures than 37 degrees. I'm guessing of course.|
We have sexism, racism, ageism. But do we now detect DOGISM on your site? Not a single mention of dog biscuits! Watch out -- you'll have the canine PC crusade threatening you with placards "Equal Rights For Dogs" and "Dogs Are Biscuit Lovers Too", even "Chi Chi Loves Her Choccy".

||Dear Nicey, I love your site, and am relieved to see someone finally tackle biscuits on the internet in a forceful and hard hitting style.|
However, I'm curious, do you have any plans for retrobiscuit reviews? Those biscuits of yesteryear which through no fault of their own, have faded from public knowledge. I speak of Cobbett's Oat Crunchies, and similar.
|Nicey replies: Actually I consider quite a lot of the biscuits we review to be essentially retro biscuits. However, we are always on the look out for more.|
||Hello, i am a new visitor to your site, and let me tell you i was amazed! now first off i am an american, simple minded perhaps, but! i love your site more than any other! Biscuits (we call them cookies) have not been given enough attention in our public, and i am quite ashamed! I rather enjoy having tea and cookies (biscuits) and sitting down every day, i could have been english! ;) well anyway have a great day! i love your site and have made it half way through your archives of Biscuit reviews. its a shame we do not get very many of the exotic kinds of cookies in my area other wise i would eat more, then again maybe thats a good thing, because i have to keep up my shape for my wife... :)|
May you always have a surpluss of biscuits, tea, and thing to sit on
|Nicey replies: There is a big world of biscuits out there, perhaps you could indulge yourself in a bit of biscuit tourism, we European types are quite fond of that. Then again armed with our biscuit review information you may now spot some imported UK biccies.|
