Fig rolls
Nicey replies: The Fig Roll Crisis earlier this year is still having repercussions six months later. All cut and bake varieties seem to available, we have seen Jacobs, Crawfords and Bolands (Irish) in last few months. However the Burton's bake then cut ones which are supplied to most UK supermarkets as own brand don't seem to have restarted as yet.

Nicey replies: Phil,

Thanks for getting us back on to a sensible topic. My personal call would to class the Cheddar as a savoury cracker, and not a biscuit. Given that its a savoury rather than a sweet product I feel happy with that. Also Cheddars would need some form of quarantine from other biscuits if placed in the same biscuit tin confinement to their packet. Other wise you might end up with cheesy custard creams or some other embarrassing problem.

Having said that a school friend of mine went through quite a big Cheddars phase where he would have a fig roll followed by 2 or 3 cheddar chasers. The two went together very well probably a bit like having fruit with your cheese board. So I would acknowledge the Cheddars ability to mix convivially with biscuits, perhaps more than any other cracker. I'm sure it could always hang about with those Hovis Digestives if it were feeling a bit left out, as they both share an interest in cheese.

Nicey replies: I managed to pick up a pack of Jacobs this morning so it looks like the cut then bake fig rolls are weathering the crisis for some reason. I'm very pleased to hear that you have got hold of some Crawfords as I had my doubts that they would keep on making them once Jacobs joined United Biscuits.

McVities Milk Chocolate Digestive Review
Nicey replies: Good reasoned thinking, however, the mice in Bagpuss were a dodgy bunch and were not really making Chocolate Biscuits out of Butter Beans. They kept producing the same chocolate biscuit from round the back over and over again. They probably pinched this too. (I go into this in some depth in our book)

BTW Bagpuss has just won a poll or something You can see the mice in the picture. They look a bit shifty, I think its the eyes.

Nicey replies: Don't know why the Fig crisis isn't making the mainstream news. Maybe SKY would go with it if there was some kind of riot as a consequence of Fig Roll shortages. Given the scant coverage of the GingerNut / Morning Coffee crisis of 2006 I don't hold out much hope.
