ANZAC biscuit Review
|My Dear Nicey & TW|
Tempted by your lyrical review on the launch of the Anzac Biscuit I duly hunted them out at Sainsburys' on Sunday.
I am now hopelessly addicted to Golden Syrup and Oats.
This is bad, really bad, I am eating them even without a cup of Yorkshires Finest to hand. I woke up thinking about them today and had three for breakfast. Then made the tea and had two more.
Luckily, unlike other addictive substances currently proscribed by the good law of this land, it is unlikely that I should be tempted to introduce them to others and gain their wide eyed and drooling compliance (could they be bent to my will with Classical Conditioning.....alarm clock -biscuit, alarm clock - biscuit?)
Eve would not offer these to Adam.
They are MINE, all MINE.
should I thank you....hmmnnn?!
Who the hell wants to be a size 6 - 8 anyway?
|There has been a heap of Oreo's dumped in Australian supermarkets and they're just sitting there. I tried a pack because they had been marked down to clear (never ever a good reason to buy biscuits) and then fed them to the dog, because they're so awful. Even the packaging is awful.|
|Nicey replies: And how did your Dog get on with them?
ANZAC biscuit Review
|Hi, Nicey. Regarding ANZAC biscuits, I was very interested to see these available commercially. I came across home-made Anzacs while staying with friends who had lived and worked in Nepal with an Aid organisation. They were part of an ex-pat community with Americans, Aussies, Dutch, Kiwis, etc, so until now I didn't know where the recipe came from. (Sounds like it was Down-Under!) The secret of these yummy biscuits is the use of BICARB in the bikkie-dough. They also have a good ratio of oats to flour, which for me makes the perfect biscuit.|
Love the site - I'm visiting daily now.
All best wishes,
||Esteemed Mr Nicey,|
This is a serious message about a serious question.
We enjoy English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast and Scottish Breakfast tea, here in the Antipodes. However, a Welsh friend has asked me where we can buy Welsh Breakfast and, indeed, is there such a thing as Welsh Breakfast Tea.
Who makes Welsh Breakfast Tea, and can another Australian reader let us know where we can buy it?
|Nicey replies: 'The' Welsh tea is called Glengetty, I could only find one reference to it in Google and that was in the middle of a large piece of Welsh text. Don't know about a breakfast type of tea however.|
Weston's Wagon Wheels Review
|Mr Nicey, esteemed,|
Don't be fooled by those raspberry pips. Rumour has it that there is a gigantic Pip Factory somewhere in the middle of The Great South Land. Truck- (=lorry-) loads of woodchips are sent there (from Tasmania, which is being stripped of its trees). They are whittled by hand into nice, smooth, oval pippy shapes, and sold to the biscuit companies. It is also said that this is done in collusion with the orthodontic profession, who profit greatly from the dentures broken when some poor biscuit-eater chomps on one of those things. It is believed that maxilo-facial surgeons want to be in on the act, too. Enough to give you the pip, really.
A remain, Sir,
