Breton Biscuit Super Review Review
Nicey replies: Yes its that time of year when people drag packets of biscuits back from their holidays to pass round at work. Mostly it turns out that they are foul and just underline our position at the top of the league table proper biscuit producing nations. However, occasionally you get a half way decent one.

You seem have Palets Breton, which are a style of biscuit so you can broaden your quest out from just the Tanguy ones. You'll need to go to France to get anymore as we've not seen them anywhere in the UK.

WIfey who has just got back from her end of summer girls trip away to Italy, dragged back a box of 'Suncrocks'. She bought them for sustenance whilst she climbed Mount Vesuvius. As she was concentrating on collecting geological samples for the younger members of staff it entirely escaped her attention that these Italian Suncrocks were made in London by McVities and were simply rebadged rebranded Hobnobs. Which poses the question why couldn't they call them that in Italy? Is it unpronounceable, or obscene, or perhaps they already have something called hobnobs?

Griffin's vs McVities Ginger Nut Review
Nicey replies: Thanks for that. I liked the one that involves getting Toffeepops from your forehead to your mouth using just wild facial expressions, this is indeed first class biscuit advertising. I also got a strong craving for Griffins Gingernuts.

Nicey replies: Thank you for passing your father's sage learning. I fear that entire sum of human knowledge and enquiry to date has failed to properly quantify and explain the forces and mechanisms at work when tea is poured from a pot. The design of such important things being left to the creative whimsey of artisans rather than the directed research of physicists and mathematicians.

Perhaps if we roped in Mr Dyson he could come up with something sure fire, given his successes in getting 'hoovers' to pick up fluff off of carpets.

As we crossed the Irish sea on our way back from this years tea tour I was treated to an unusual scene in the men's toilets. An elderly American chap, properly attired in comfortable chequered clothing was raving about the hand dryer. It was another one Mr Dyson's inventions.

The old fella was so impressed, his words were "that's the first goddamn one of those that I've used that's ever worked", and he promptly took a photo of it with his digital camera.

I rushed back and immediately told Nanny Nicey, who prides herself on taking offbeat and tedious holiday photos with which to stupefy her rambling circle. Her pictures of unusually shaped collecting containers at French recycling points were in danger of being eclipsed by this old boys pictures of maritime toilet fixtures.

Nicey replies: Very nice pom-poms too.

Club Milk Review
Nicey replies: Steve,

Great to hear from somebody who was so involved with the revered Club Biscuit. It was my cherished wish that McVities would ride to the rescue and reinstate the Club back to its former glory but alas they seem to view the whole acquisition and what was Associated Biscuits as a means of getting their hands on Cream Crackers. Given that they have had to brand their Jacobs fig rolls as McVities in-order to sell them in the Republic of Ireland, maybe Jacob's Fruitfieild will brand their Clubs as Bollands and start shipping some over here (we can hope).

As for all those Christmas Puds, we had a few in our time. Every one accompanied by my Dad's tale of how awful the one they had after the end of WWII was. The resurrected Huntley and Palmers does quite a nice Christmas pudding nowadays, probably to be found in Waitrose.
