Biscuit tin
Nicey replies: Hi Nicky,

Yes I particularly enjoyed that bit too I'm glad you picked up on it. Well done on your other points too. I think we could develop this into the definitive list in time for Christmas, which would be very helpful for all those clueless uncouth people. It would also be a boon for all those sticklers for decorum who could brow beat the biscuit tin abusing louts with it (I was once interviewed in the Daily Mail you know).

Wagon Wheel Review
Nicey replies: Hoorah! for our book sculling around in the back seat of cars.

Anyhow as you know Wagonwheels of old were quite unlike anything else on the planet before or since. So it comes as little surprise to find out that they had unique physical properties. Perhaps if you had thought of it at the time you could have continued your investigations and seen if they fluoresce under ultra-violet light or if finely divided Wagonwheels (technically crumbs I suppose) could act as the catalyst in something like the Haber-Bosch process.

I doubt if a modern Wagonwheel would be any good as they are made with conventional components like chocolate and so forth.

Rich Tea Review


Cafe Bronte Range Review
Nicey replies: I would have thought that Spike Milligan would be the obvious choice to go on the back of a Charles bank note.

As for all those ethical things you brought up. I don't think the Cafe Bronte range are too bad at all for a point of sale type product, certainly we put all that cardboard in our recycling. But obviously being something you would consume in a cafe or the like it comes down to that particular establishments recycling facilities. The really right on people will take it home and recycle at home but they shouldn't have to. People who are attuned to such things will make their own decisions based on the facts available, so we simply try and pass on the relevant facts in each case, along with various petty quibbles and random musings.

So perhaps it would be good to hear about sit down places where they responsibly recycle the packing from your cuppa and biccies. Places that simply put bits of cake or biscuits on plates and give you tea in a proper cup or mug as opposed to a paper or worse plastic one, and whose milk is in a jug not a plastic pot go to the top of the class.

Nicey replies: Kate,

I'm not sure why I have got it in for the Nice biscuit (apart from the coconut which I don't like and its daft name), but I think its healthy to have a nemesis or two.

As for all that Custard that deserves the erecting of some sort permeant commemorative monument and possibly a small visitor centre with a coach park. We haven't bagged any Irish Custard but I've been told about it. I once did an interview on Irish radio's Ray D'arcy show whilst somebody in the studio made some which was exciting. Apparently Irish Custard Powder is made by the same people who make Birds, so maybe they make it a bit differently for Ireland or it is exactly the same and its wishful thinking. Given your Mum-in-law's experience I wouldn't like to push that last point too far.
