Chocolate Caramel Review
|Having recently discovered your website, i was taken aback at the simplicity, and yet brilliance of the idea. As an Irishman, i am somewhat proud of our status of the largest tea-drinkers per capita, and as such, do my part to preserve that status.|
One thing i feel obliged to mention to you and your great website is the multitude of new flavours and textures to be achieved by doing that seemingly inapropriate and misguided attempt at food storage,and putting biscuits in the fridge, or, when the circumstances apply, the freezer. This is especially rewarding if the bisuits in question involve chocolate, and even more so when they have caramel in their composition. (it goes crunchy, shattering into caramelised shards in your mouth before melting back into a single entity). Caramel Digestives (McVities, naturally) work extremely well in this manner.
I just hope you will take this seemingly eccentric method, (which came to my attention after the resounding success of following through upon being told to put Rolo's into the freezer by an acquaintance) on board.
||I have to say I hadn't thought about making two cups of tea, one for dunking and one for drinking before, but that really is a smashing idea and one I am going to employ immediately. The added bonus will be that if I continue to be careful with my dunking habits and not lose any poor souls to the molten tea, I'll have two cups of tea to neck, marvellous! Thanks Derek!!|
Jam Sandwich Creams Review
I've been a fan of dunking for many years, and having purchased your book as an ideal gift to a friend, I felt I had to write and share, as my friend refers to, my advanced dunking technique, which is now folklore in my social circle and was wondering if anyone else is a "2 Cuppa" (not seen anyone on the site).
Simply put, I make 2 cups of tea, one for dunking, and one for drinking, thereby negating the concern of a mis-timed dunk (especially important when mastering the Jam Sandwich cream technique (just enough time to warm the jam, but not too much to risk structural integrigity lose by melting the vanilla"glue", Fox's are the best of all JSC's!)
I'd be interested in a poll to see who else is a "2 Cuppa", may also be interesting to see if "2 Cuppa's" out there are advanced enough to differ on the drinker and the dunker!!!
Yours in anticipation,
Derek "Dunker" Newton
NB - I was once with a rather posh family and dunking in public was frowned upon, I was almost ejected from the premises! (A shame as the biscuit question was the legendary sweetmeal digestive cream).

Yes we have heard of this before but only indirectly. However, we can now confidently say that there is a chap called Derek who does this if anybody asks.
Tesco's Organic Fruit Bake Biscuits Review
|I had a nasty biscuit injury with these a few months back when a wheaty husk got lodged in my gum. It was agony but it did feel like I was getting the full organic experience. These are a good organic biscuit, well, waffle I go for two per sitting. You can get similar ones from your ‘local health food shops’ which taste bad for you, but when you read the ingredients you realise that you are actually eating date sap or suchlike.|
|Nicey replies: Yes I have taken to keeping dental floss in my arsenal of biscuit reviewing kit.|
Kölln Cakes Review
I was visiting my German relatives recently and was given a present of some german biscuits.
They came in all shapes and sizes. Some covered in dark or white chocolate and some not.
Unfortunately, upon trying several of them in turn, I realised that all german biscuits are, infact, gingerbread.
This is a matter of some concern to me as, for example, british bisucuits may be shortbread or digestive or any number of varieties.
I would be very interested to find out if Germany has a more complex taxonomy of biscuits than a single, large set called 'Gingerbread'?
I can't ask my relatives directly lest they take offense at my ingratitude to their sincere generosity.
|Nicey replies: Well yes a great many traditional German biscuits are essentially Gingerbread and we would hope so from the country that brought us Hanzel and Gretel. However, over the years we've had all sorts of things out of Germany that weren't Ginger bread. Follow this magic link into our review archive and scroll down to Germany.|
