Nicey replies: Anji,

You raise a number of important and topical points. We were only discussing the very issue of incorrectly dimensioned Bourbons last night. Indeed if they are not the regulation size and shape then they probably have a poor flavour. Perhaps there is an inner council of biscuit overlords, who only permit manufacturers to use the classic shape if their biscuit meets the required standard. We had some squat little Bourbons made by Elks before Christmas and they were quite awful.

As for Jaffa Cakes, our youngest member of staff is a great admirer of the whole genre. Indeed last night at 1:00am it took three of them and some milk, before he became coherent and reasonable again. We too have tried Asda's Smartprice Jaffa Cakes and were most pleased with them. I am drawn to the idea of a grand Jaffa Cake festival in the style of our 21st Century Fig Fest, for latter this year.

Nicey replies: Jim,

That sounds about right. Those Lu blokes are one of the few hopes the French have, indeed they make the Figolu from the Fig Fest. I'm off on a fact finding mission to high altitude France in early February so I'll keep an eye out for them.

Nicey replies: I appreciate your dilemma but Jaffa Cakes are indeed small cakes. The problem does not lay with their classification, rather it lies with your own draconian rules. Simply extend them to include the very reasonably priced Jaffa Cakes, and possibly Pimms Biscuits which are like Cherry Jaffa cakes with white chocolate.

As you have expounded upon biscuit classification is a far from simple or trivial exercise, and so your own rules will need to reflect this diversity, if you are to fully embrace the world of tea time treats.

Nicey replies: Thanks for that Spencer, although there is no new information in Louise's reply. I would simply add that they are called Jaffa CAKES not Jaffa BISCUITS, you see the clue is in the name.
