Jacob's Mikado Review
|Ahh..fond memories. Maybe it's just me, but I used to eat Mikado biccies by scooping the jam out with my finger, then pulling off the marshmallow.|
As for Iced Vovos (or Iced Volvos as my hubby used to call them) - they're a pale shadow - they're too flat & nowhere near spongey enough.
As for me, I'm a new Tim Tam addict, and have the suck down pat. And yes, they remind me of Penguins too - but has anyone tried the tea slurp through a Penguin yet? We need to be told.
I'm looking forward to a 2 week stay with my parents to relive my biccie fantasies very soon!

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
You can make dulche de leche very easily by _carefully_ simmering a can of condensed milk in plenty of water for an hour, making sure it doesn't boil dry and that the can is cold when you open it.
It is also the offee in banoffee pie...
which also goes well with a nice cup of tea!
Keep up the nice work.
||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,
Fnord from b3ta here. I was just thinking I should ask if you've done any experiments with mixing biscuits etc in tins to create new taste hybrids.
We all know that a few ginger biscuits left in a tin with some other biscuits for a while will 'infect' the other ones 'ginging then up'. But maybe you could test out what the best ginged up bicuits are, also marshmallow biscuit things have a similar 'polluting' effect. Minty ones can too.
Might be interesting to try and mix ginger, marshmallow and minty ones and see what comes out as the overall flavour.
|Nicey replies: Hello Fnord,
Well, we try to to avoid such experiments, and biscuits are rarely in our tin long enough to suffer such problems/effects. The last time I had a tin full of Gingernuts it also had some other gingernuts in it so I couldn't tell.
I would just caution against any such experiments with Asda Maple Syrup Creams, or Maryland cookies deviating from the chocolate theme, as it will lead to biscuit distress.
