Morning Coffee Review
Thoroughly enjoy the site. I have spent many an hour at work secretly reading through the pages and feel that my knowledge of the biscuit world has greatly increased.
What I can find very little discussion on, however, is the therapeutic qualities of the humble biscuit. Indeed in these days when hard drugs are available on almost every street corner (except for the one outside our local village post office), the far less dangerous and illegal qualities of small baked treats are often ignored. I myself find the sugary qualities of a custard cream (strangely the cheaper the brand the better) to be most uplifting in times of depression. When feeling unwell but struggling into work anyway (as only us men can do) I find the power of a penguin alongside my PG tips 'One Cup' helps the day speed along nicely. When tucked up in bed, snuffling with man-flu, nothing can beat the healing powers of a 'Nice' (except maybe a slice of marmite on toast brought up to you on a little plate and cut up into triangles). On the flip side when feeling 'over-happy' a single Rich Tea can bring you straight back down to earth.
What I would like to know is does anyone else have any 'little favourites' that they rely on in times of need ?
None of these little 'treatments' will lead to a stay in The Priory, nor will they give you a nose like Daniella Westbrook. Eastern cultures have their own mystical remedies and potions. What I say is do us Brits have to look any further than the snacks aisle of Asda to find our own home-grown equivalents.
Keep on munching !
P.S. My own version of wifey would like to know whats going on with 'Morning Coffees' these days. They are the closest thing to a treat that her latest fad diet will allow and none of our local supermarkets seem to stock them anymore ? Have they gone AWOL or is the a shortage hitting the Lancashire area ?
|Nicey replies: There are some people who imagine that Arrowroot biscuits are some kind of aid to wobbly tum, but I think you are probably referring to the ability of a biscuit or two and a cuppa to set you right. In which case we tend to go about that all the time.
Yes there does seem to be a nation wide Morning Coffee crisis, which I have been assuming is related to on going problems at the United Biscuits plant in Carlisle since the flooding at new year.
