Garibaldi Review
Nicey replies: Nick,

Yes our best information on the Chocolate Gariballdi is that it was probably made by the now defunct south London biscuit manufacturer Chiltonian biscuits. Not only were they able to cover some in chocolate but theirs were much more moist than today's Gariballdis. When ever I'm in the presence of one of the powerful people in the biscuit world I habitually put in a plea to bring back the Chocolate Gariballdi. So far there is no sign of this happening.

Nicey replies: Tim,

You have of course spotted my guilty secret, namely that I didn't have a dark chocolate Hobnob picture so switched in a Dark Digestive. It's also plainly time that I sorted out the votes and told everybody what has been happening. I shall get to it right away.

I can say however in advance that the Top 10s are as follows:


  1. Dark Chocolate Digestive

  2. Milk Chocolate Digestive

  3. Milk Chocolate Hobnob

  4. Jaffa Cake

  5. Gingernut

  6. Dark Chocolate Hobnob

  7. Chocolate Caramel Digestive

  8. Hobnob

  9. Custard cream


  1. Digestive

  2. Milk Chocolate Digestive

  3. Dark Chocolate Digestive

  4. Gingernut

  5. Rich Tea

  6. Jaffa Cake

  7. Hobnob

  8. Custard cream

  9. Choc chip cookie

  10. Bourbon


  1. Pink Wafers

  2. Fig Roll

  3. Wagonwheel

  4. Rich Tea

  5. Lemon Puff

  6. Iced Gems

  7. Gingernut

  8. Jaffa cake

  9. Garibaldi

  10. Nice

Well done to the Gingernut and Jaffa cake for appearing in all three top 10s. Also we would like to add that the Jaffa cake is of course still a small cake despite its inclusion in the poll. Mind you maybe the VAT man will use this very poll as evidence next time they thrash out the eternal debate.

Fruit Shortcake Review
Nicey replies: The lack of a biscuits as weapons icon is becoming increasingly embarrassing.

A word of caution on the Garibaldis, modern ones are a bit drier and generally less chewy than those of antiquity. Just so that you are prepared, still certainly worth a good go. Also it is almost certainly your age, it is increasingly the reason for most standpoints I have on things. Wifey and I were very lucky to attend the Oldie magazine's 200th Edition party last week, were we told off by Patricia Routledge for not being old at all, however after a mere 5 or 6 drinks it took us both 2 days to recover fully.

Nicey replies: Indeed as far as I recall the Lemon Puff was a Peek Frean biscuit and so its custodian-ship moved to Jacobs in due course. As I have often said I respected the lemon puff of old, despite not really liking it.. We had a couple attempts at reviewing the modern and inferior round ones but they were too grim.

As for Kunzle Cakes, I never had one but they sound amazing, there is a very good blog devoted to them.

Nicey replies: We keep passing through Rutland, and Oakham on our way to and from other places. In fact we tried to find somewhere to camp up there two weeks ago but wound up in Derbyshire. If we had of made it to Rutland we would have been cycling round there too..

Just got back from a splendid bike ride this afternoon with both younger members of staff and Nanny Nicey. All off road in the hills between Saffron Walden and Royston. We took half a home made fruit cake and a flask of tea. We pop two teabags in the flask when we are ready to make the tea, and this works very well indeed.
