I do not know how you feel about hybridised biscuit/confectionaries, but I would have to heartily recommend the practice of sucking tea through a Twixel.
My Girlfriend and I tried it last night for the first time, and it was rather splendid.
My apologies if this is not considering decorum.
|Nicey replies: Yes, you are really discussing something on the very fringes of the biscuit time space continuum there. Its a confectionary matter really.|
I have a chum by the name of Neville who invented an ideal accompaniment for a nice cup of tea or when you've had a skinfull down the pub - either is fine (actually I find a nice cup of tea does the job if you've over done it on the beer). It consists of a packet of Revels - you know the little multiflavoured chocolate covered sweets? These are placed in a toasted sandwich or Breville maker once the peanut ones have been removed (you can tell these as they are a bit nobbly and don't toast well). Do not butter the outside as some people do as this renders the sandwich too sickly. Hey Presto - Neville's Revel Breville.
This does not taste nice with Mars Bars and of course would not rhyme.
|Nicey replies: Outstanding|
Wouldn't it be a nice idea for McVities or another biscuit superpower to produce an advent calendar with a different biscuit behind each window? Of course the size of the calendar would have to be increased somewhat from the norm, but what better way to enjoy the festive season than an enforced sit down with a biscuit and therefore, naturally, a cup of tea.
|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.|
||Your bloke off to the Antarctic should take ginger biscuits and nibble them slowly to avoid seasickness. Well they are generally suggested to help avoid morning sickness so they might work. Pregnant women are told to lie in bed whilst partner brings in nice cup of tea and a couple of ginger nuts to start the day off well. Let's face it any day that starts with tea and biscuits in bed can't be all bad can it.|
|Nicey replies: Sound advice Paula, I know the Wife would agree with you on the whole tea/staying in bed thing.|
