In the odd Yin and Yang world of NiceCupOfTeaAndASitDown I shall immediately follow up your post with a good Morrisons story. By the way my spell checker really wants me to change their name to morons or Mormons, so it's a safe bet they don't have branches in San Francisco Bay area, although it's heard of the other two.

Fruit Shortcake Review
Nicey replies: Amber,

You simply need to knuckle down and drink lots of tea. What will definitely help are some nice straight forward biscuits, nothing too fancy as you are looking for the tea to play its part in the proceedings, and not be drowned out. I would say try a few fruit shortcakes with your next cuppa and see how you get on. Also it helps if you really need your cup of tea, so I would suggest any number of physical pursuits to get your need for tea increased. Try short bursts of tidying up the house, between 15-30 minutes. This should have you screaming for a cuppa, sugar or not. If this doesn't work then you could always get a job on a building site, or in the NHS where tea drinking tends to part of the training.

Seek you the Grail
Nicey replies: Mark,

Yes these Caramac Digestives have been mentioned to me once or twice. I never had them, although the odd Caramac itself used to come briefly into my possession. I could never really understand why they were always so thin, surely there would have been a market for a Caramac built along similar lines as a family bar of Cadbury's milk. As for the biscuits, if they really were carrying a payload of genuine Caramac then they would have been something to do with Rowntree - Mackintosh, who were of course taken over by Nestlé in the mid 1980s.

Ginger Nut Review
Nicey replies: Liz,

Yes you may indeed have a point there, although I think the status quo has remained static for some time now on that front. Certainly I recall that many own many supermarket own label gingernuts were much much harder that McVities. Today they are simply a bit harder.

I don't think those who avoid Earl Grey are objecting to it's strength, rather, its bergamot oil.

Trust me Wifey says loads, but not always on this website.

McVities Light Range Review
Nicey replies: Hello Brian,

Thankfully they didn't appear to ramp up the sugar, which as you point out is often the case in low fat recipes. One thing to bear in mind especially with the Digestive is that the standard biscuit is actually has a far higher fat content than most people suspect. So there is plenty of room for manoeuvre.
