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.

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!

Nicey replies: Very tricky Sue as you know Orange Cream is a difficult thing to find in most biscuits, but take chocolate out of the equation its like hens teeth.

OP just down the road from you do an uncovered Lemon Wafer as their nearest.

Not sure if a trip to France to retrive La Paile D'Or would find an Orange version, I don't recall one and LU's websites are woeful so I can't tell from there.

I only had to go on one quest for food for Wifey, which involved digging up a stray and rather gnarled spinach plant that had established itself in the front garden and presenting it to her on toast. Relatively easy in comparison to this task.

Custard Cream Review
Nicey replies: The custard cream is a classic biscuit whose stature in the biscuit world cannot be undone with a throw away snide comment. Indeed such biscuits (the bourbon, digestive, rich tea to name but a few) have transcended into another realm of biscuit existence which goes far beyond any partisan company allegiances, fads or standard product lifetime curves. They are now timeless classics whose purity of design and purpose can put us back in touch with the essence of a cuppa and a sit down. Those who are blinkered and unwilling to appreciate such glorious simplicity have our sympathy.

Nicey replies: It's also a bit scary that it was still pink after 50 years in an envelope. I expect the Queen opened up a few hundred tins of Rover assortment, hence the Pink Wafers. Although it does make you wonder what became of all the biscuit tins?
