Nicey replies: Yes we are aware of that line of reasoning. The problem is that Cake is considered a staple foodstuff and does not attract VAT, whilst biscuits are considered a luxury item, and as such are subject to VAT. McVities are keen for Jaffa Cakes to be seen as cake, and calling them Jaffa CAKES and making the bottom out of sponge wasn't enough of a clue. The Irish inland revenue decided it was a cake due to its moisture content being above 12%, (see the cake link at the top) Apparently UK the Judge needed more convincing so McVities made him a special 12 inch wide Jaffa cake, which he scoffed down with a pot of tea and then ruled it was a cake, Hoorah.

The goverment alas want the ruling over turned as its got chocolate on top and looks like a luxury item to them and the want to slap VAT on it.

Nicey replies: I've mostly seen Abbey Crunch in triple packs with along with ginger nuts and fruit shortcake for 99p in Iceland. Good hunting.

Nicey replies: Yes that is very interesting. It shows that biscuit engineering is a vibrant and exciting science. Maybe one day you'll be a able to do an entire degree on biscuits, somewhere. I would like to come and do a guest Lecture on the Abbey Crunch, and the importance of a nice sit down, if that ever happens.

Nicey replies: Liz,

You'll probably be OK with loads of tins of Rover assortment, they are a bit pricey but if its a special do then its probably worth it. They are a good selection with a few bourbons, jam and cream sandwichs etc so they should keep everyone happy.

As a bonus you'll also have several thousand old biscuit tins left over to keep all your old photos, paper clips and bits of string in.
