Jammie Dodger Review
Nicey replies: Hmmmmmmm. At least I get to use the fruit icon for the first time.

Nicey replies: Unless your Dad is in a well known rock band, or somehow still at Art School, then he totally missed the point of Art school.

Nicey replies: Richard,

I've always thought of it as Jelly but if McVities say its jam then jam it is. I suppose it comes down to what sort of complex macro-molecules give it its jelly like texture. For Jam its pectin a polysaccharide component of plant cell walls, and for jelly its gelatin a protein found in skin, bone and cartilage. I just checked on a packet of Tesco's Jaffa cakes and the gelling agent is Pectin. So Jam it is.

Still industrial jam sounds pretty cool, a step up from recreational jam. I suppose military or weapons grade jam is the next level up.

As for tea the wife and I regularly enjoy PG. The chimps lost their way since about 1976, but as yet the motives of the plasticene birds are unclear.

I think tea is a very personal thing so I don't tend to get drawn into debates on its components or construction.

Nicey replies: James,

These biscuits have a very different agenda to conventional biscuits, as they are trying to be good to you by monkeying around with the basic dynamics of the biscuit recipe, altering the fat and sugar content. The Strawberries and Cream thing is meant to be a diversion away from the now compromised biscuit.

Like most things in this world that are bad for us you are better off having one or two good ones rather than a truck load of dodgy ones, as I think your example has illustrated.
