Jam Sandwich Creams Review
Nicey replies: Right a great deal to get through here. First off that's a Jam Cream Sandwich which Fox's are building there, a Jammie Dodger is not only different not having cream, but is a built solely by Burtons. Its a bit like calling your Dyson Vacuum cleaner a Hoover. Sorry for the pedantic bit there but I would be remiss if I didn't wade in.

Any how the Mr Kipling Viennese whirl is avery undervalued thing, and in a great many European countries would get away with calling itself what ever it fancied. Cake or biscuit they wouldn't really care. However in the UK it would have to be a cake, and not just beacuse as we all know, Mr Kipling makes exceedingly good ones, and he made these, but also because I don't think it can be classed as a pastry as it has raising in it. If it was a pastry I would probably just join a circle straight to cakes in the mighty NCOTAASD Venn Diagram of such things which is always open for a bit of a fiddling with.

Nicey replies: Simon,

Hoorah for academia and thank you for the mention! I was pleased to see that our book which is in Cambridge University Library warranted the creation of three of its own catalogue categories 'Tea -Great Britain - Humour', 'Afternoon Tea -Great Britain - Humour' and rather worryingly 'Cookies - Great Britain - Humour'. I assume that the Librarian involved must be American.

Mind you Wifey informs me that apparently Trinny and Suzanna mention us in the back of their latest book so you are in good company.

Nicey replies: Hello Jim,

How charming. I'm guessing from your description that would have been some kind of enchanted van, possibly with pixies (good or evil) knocking out the biscuits behind the scenes. Did the purveyor have a brightly coloured hat or suit and strange moustache, and a name along the lines of Dr Munchbiccie? Perhaps it was all part of a scheme to abduct IT professionals who have strayed too far from their offices and take them back to his magic castle. It would most likely be somewhere on the M4 corridor. There he'll enslave them in forced labour toiling to program some enormous back office system to administer afore mentioned magic castle using some evil technology platform (fill in your preferred evil technology - I'll take ASP thank you).

Did you spot a very large net?

Did the van play sinister yet spell binding ice-cream van music?

So many questions - don't suppose you got a photo.

Keith O'Kane
Nicey replies: Dear Keith,

Thanks ever-so for letting us know the out come of the Tiffin competition on Wednesday at 11:00.

We are hugely impressed at the number of entries their quality and the degree inventiveness shown by all who took part. Special congratulations of course to you the winner. Now generally as a rule we don't post recipes on NCOTAASD as it brings in floods of mails from individuals out there who think the whole site should turn into some enormous great cook book. There is quite enough of that already on the interweb. This is closely followed by those wanting tea reviews who think Wifey and I should deprive ourselves of much needed PG Tips and start drinking our way through random teas just so we can say how much we really want a cup of PG instead something we clearly aren't enjoying as much.

However, as a mark of our respect for this magnificent achievement we shall publish your recipe, only the second one in our entire history. Well done to Oliver Lewis too, clearly an emerging talent for the future.

Hiromi Miura
World of BiscuitsJapanese Black Thunder
Nicey replies: Good Morning Hiromi,

Don't you worry, I think any FM Radio station in the UK will be just as surprised and thrilled to get a random delivery of unusual Japanese biscuits. As you say most of them seem to have a Black Thunder of their own (I think they are all part of the same company). Anyway Essex is next door to us and it's where I was born, and I have lots of family there so that's all fine. I'm quite excited about how confused and puzzled they are going to be! It's a wonderful thing you have done and you should be very proud.

A big NCOTAASD Hoorah for you!
