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.


McVities Milk Chocolate Digestive Review
Nicey replies: Hello James,

When we polled people as to the right way up for chocolate biscuits we had 582 votes, 86.08% thought choc side up 8.25% were with you and 5.67% seemed to think it didn't matter. Perhaps a few of the 86% can be convinced to try them 'inverted', but we did have reports of some people trying that last time we talked about it. They said it felt disturbing.

As for tea, I notice that like ourselves you live in Cambridge and so maybe you might want to consider some form of water filtration for our grim old tap water before you start worrying what is or isn't happening to teabags. It might buy you a big margin of tea improvement, our kettle thread had lots of messages from people saying it had really worked for them.
