|Esteemed Mr Nicey,|
Biscuits come in nice bright packets, all red and yellow (which we retired publishers know are Colours That Sell).
These Oreo things come in dull blue and black packets. In Australia, at least. Other products that are offered in this way include (a) those loo-blue things you use to clean your toilet, (b) fly spray, and (c) rat poison.
Is there a message in this?
I am, Sir, your humble.
Tim Tam vs Penguin Review
|Dear Mr Nicey,|
May I first congratulate you on an inspirational website, Never before has any site made me want to leave my computer so much, venture downstairs and make a cracking cup of Yorkshire tea. Thank you.
I feel compelled to add to the mighty Tim-Tam debate that is unfolding before our very eyes by including a couple of instructions for the sucking up of tea through a Tim-Tam that Mr Pigstabber wrote to you about. The Tim-Tam must slightly give way underneath your fingers when the tea has been sucked up, so don't grip the biscuit too hard, and then, the MOST important thing is to put ALL of the Tim-Tam into your mouth for the complete and unadulterated satisfaction and semi-orgasmic experience.
These extra additions I feel will make those virgin Tim-Tam Slammers quiver with sheer delight.
Thank you Ian Norris, you are a legend in your own mixing bowl. Long live the Tim-Tam,
Humble biscuit fan
Tim Tam vs Penguin Review
|Tim Tans are on the streets for London already but at a price! From the Australia Shop in covent garden at about £3 a packet but a must every time you go to London the caramels ones are best especially when used as a staw however twix bars come a close second when used in the same way another one to try!|
|Nicey replies: Yes, I think thats where our first review pack came from, and it looked to be a an Australian domestic pack. The ones in Tescos are export versions as the packing has lots of Arabic on the back.|
As a Brit having being brought up on a diet of penguins (and other things, but mostly penguins) I must say I was only left in awe of the Tim Tam and its superior biscuit quality, in particular the caramel variety. And the timing of the Tim Tam UK launch has come at a dark time for the Penguin, without its jokes on the back to save its hide, it can only try and amuse with, and nothing short of, stupid serving suggestions that have the power to depress me by reminding me that the person who comes up with them gets paid more than I. McV should hang its head in shame and get its act together on this matter, to save its pride.
|Nicey replies: Yep, Tim Tams taste nice but they are almost 60% more expensive than Penguins. Also Penguins still have jokes on them and they have been updated. There is a slew of new Penguin products available now including Chukkas and Splatz as we reported in a recent news item, so I think the whole Penguin brand is looking stronger than ever.
We are going along to the Tim Tam launch next week so we'll probably do a special report on it.
||Dear Mr Nicey,|
At first, I suffered moral outrage at the idea of letting biscuits of different kinds mix in the same tin. But then I realised that if they are above the age of consent, it's all perfectly legal, as long as they don't do it in the street and frighten the horses.
I am, sir,
