Café Noir Review
Nicey replies: Hello Ruth,

Our next door neighbour is Canadian, and feels he is living in an Ice Hockey wasteland, so may be that goes some way to restoring balance in the universe. Anyhow many many iced biscuits have fallen by the way side and are perhaps the Sauropods of the paleolithic biscuit world. I say perhaps as the existence of the Cafe Noir however a specialised a beast it may be would need us to have a Brontosaurus or Diplodocus knocking about some place (maybe the Congo)

Anyhow back to my point, there used to loads of them and they were all fairly similar and now they all gone. Titans of a bye gone age, now just the Party Ring and Cafe Noir grace our supermarket shelves.

However the Sports biscuit is very much still alive and kicking although it has suffered terribly in that all its little sports people are no longer proper stickmen and have plumped up to at least sausage men. Foxs who you mentioned at the start of you mail make them and used to make them too for M&S, which is where you may have seen some iced ones. I spoke to a nice lady at Foxs just before the stick men were put out to pasture who said that they were up to something with their Sports biscuits but wouldn't elaborate. I think she knew we wouldn't be impressed. Playbox biscuits were made by Peek Frean, and I would instinctively attribute many bygone Iced biscuits to Peek Frean and Huntly and Palmers, although this is pure guess work.

Nicey replies: Yes bet it costs an arm and a leg, always suspicious when there isn't a sniff of a price anywhere. He would be best off just ripping open some bags of PG Tips for us and bunging them in one of his fancy little tins, then writing some stuff on the side about how we only really like PG Tips.

As sophisticated as ever

Tregroes Toffee Waffles Review
Nicey replies: Alison,

Given that you are having to subsist on whatever you can lay your hands on in continental europe to go with your tea it in natural that you should seek to broaden your approach to what can usefully be classed as biscuits. We reviewed a UK built version of the Belgian Waffle as one of our biscuits of the week, so perhaps this is enough of a sanctioning for your purposes.

Actually we have just got back from Wales where they are made and where surrounded by them when we visited Caerphilly Castle (they were in the gift shop not up in the battlements).

Mike Amberry
Nicey replies: Yes we enjoyed it too, I liked the bonnet, engine, lights and the most of the rest of it. For a moment I had to remind myself that this was not one of my fanciful daydreams but really was on the the telly.

Bakers Tennis Biscuits Review
Nicey replies: Andy,

Very dramatic tea drinking indeed, and great light. I shall assume Tennis Biscuits if I may.
