Foxs Party Rings Review
|Good morning Nicey, Wifey and YMoS,|
In these dark days of hooded tops and youngsters turning their backs on grand institutions like tea and sits down, there is a small glimmer of hope - the UWIC Undergraduate Prospectus
I am a librarian at one of the UWIC sites and was perusing the stacks of new prospectus we had received when my eye fell on the cover of our very own - a huge chocolate digestive (I am using the distinctive ridge pattern as the basis for my assertion) with a healthy bite taken out. Further inspection of the whole document has each School and section represented by a biscuit - the mighty Pink Party Ring is there, the classic Chocolate Bourbon, and even the sometimes miss-understood Pink Wafer.
At least there is one academic institution that realises the importance of biscuits - and I am assuming tea - to the successful development of our future movers and shakers. Maybe NCOTAASD could become an advisor for any future publications to ensure the correct use of biscuits at all times?
Keep up the good work,
|Nicey replies: That all seems very sensible. Wifey undertook a special solo mission to Cardiff a couple of weeks ago, and was very impressed by the the tea, biscuits and homemade cake rota at the place she visited. She also had an lovely sit down at the cafe at the end of the David Morgan arcade. She arrived back with talk of handing out special awards to institutions for outstanding tea breaks.|
||Dear Mr Nicey,|
Still enjoying 'Biscuits of the Week' but I have to say that I was
particularly arrested by the Wagon Wheel entry.
I found it to be spot on but here's the thing: In Australia we have a
Wagon Wheel that fits your description down to the ground but it is branded 'Westons'. They also come in the odious four-pack with suspected incremental shrinkage over the last couple of decades. HOWEVER, you can still buy them in single packs and, I couldn't be sure, but these ones still seem pretty big to me. I refuse to buy them in any other form. Surely their greatest appeal must lie partly in nostalgia, (how else do you explain the enjoyment of such a strange cacophony of unappetising components?) and to keep this up they need to be the same size we remembered them as back when we squirrelled them away from the tuckshop under our jumpers for fear of snack bandits. Maybe this wasn't your experience but such were my memories of primary school in the meanstreets of North-western Sydney.
Just lately I have seen them in 'White'. What is it about chocolate
confection makers in recent years that they think we're all going to faint
with excitement at the very sight of a new 'White' version?
Strike me pink and call me a wafer, they must think we're a bunch of
Jacob's Orange Club Review
|As a reply to your comment as to the disgusting way the French have treated the club biscuit,I just have to say that the club is still around in all its forms(mint,orange,plain,and raisin)-personally mint was always my favourite.However the layer of mint topping is now so thin you can hardly taste it, and as for the chocolate on the top don't even get me started. Ps pink wafers rule no matter what you say.|
