My name is Pterodactylman and do I have the very biscuit for you!
It is an Australian one called : "Iced Vo-Vo".
if it helps,
I can sing you the song that this biscuit has inspired in me!
"I wish I were a biscuit,
an iced Vo-Vo to be exact-
with plain biscuit on my bottom;
and coconut -in my crack..
but what about the pink bits..
we gotta talk about them,
'cos some of it is icing;
the rest of it is jam...
and in our crinkly packet -
we'd make such a celophane racket;
in groups of nine,
we'd form a conga line
and I know it sounds lame-but all the same....
(repeat ad infinitum)
..oh yeah...it is manufactured by Arnotts...
Double-baked goodness to you,
Jacob's Mikado Review
|This character looks suspiciously like a great Aussie biscuit called the Iced Vo-Vo to me. A favourite of the baked goods genre when I was a small tacker, it seemed to have plentiful pillows of luscious marshmallow, which in recent years have somehow coalesced into hardened lumps of pink gritty sugar. Same look, same style, but whoah! Where's the flavour?? Where's the texture?? Hopefully appearances are deceiving, and your Mikado stands up better to tastebud inspection than does our so-called "Iced Vo-Vo". Vale, Vo...|

Tim Tam vs Penguin Review
|Dear Mr Nicey,|
I have been priveledged to have brought the Tim Tam to the US, where I can attest that the natives are just as able in the Tim Tam 'Slam' as Antipodeans or Britons (who I have also introduced this many-talented biscuit to). Observations of said Britons indicate that the Penguin would be far inferior to the Tim Tam when used as a straw, but either would be quite satisfactory when eaten separately.
This may be incidental to your site, but Tim Tams can also be used as straws for a variety of alcoholic liquids, port being a favourite.
As a nice old gentleman who is not allowed to eat biscuits (or cookies), I can comment only on a TV advertisement for Oreo screened in recent times in fairest Melbourne. (That's in Australia which, unlike New Zealand, opens on Saturday.)
A "cute" little boy is sitting with his biscuit and a mug of milk. A beautiful dog watches him. The little boy constantly waves the biscuit at the dog, which eagerly awaits being fed. We go through the "First you dip it.." (or whatever they tell you to do) routine, and the boy then eats the whole biscuit. He then invites the dog to drink the milk.
I protest! First of all, on the grounds of cruelty to dogs, with the continual nasty teasing which will probably lead to a need for the dog to receive counselling. Secondly, on the implication that it is fun to starve pets. Thirdly, on the fact that drinking from the same mug is unhygienic. Who know what bacteria the poor dog will pick up and what diseases it will suffer, after drinking from that kid's mug?
It really will not do.
