Chocolate Caramel Review
|After having browsed your website, i noticed many comments suggesting 'we appreciate your comments' i thought this was too good to be true and i therefore decided to write an email. I firstly must thank you whole heartedly for writing your book. As a lover of tea and biscuits, and of course, sit downs, i was immensely thankful to find your book in the most prestigious waterstones in Cork in Ireland whilst on a recent backpacking holiday. In all fairness, during the long travelling and quiet hostels, your book did in fact provide me with just the sort of humour, comfort and general light-heartedness that i needed on my holiday (even if it did return a little more battered than i would have liked after surviving the cross channel journey in my rucksack).|
I would very much like to be able to give an opinion on many of the biscuits you have mentioned, however i do not believe that i have the time to write it, nor you the time to read it. I shall therefore be brief and selective.
Firstly, the Fox's Jam Cream, as reviewed by your excellent selves, i find to be a fantastic accompaniment to any form of tea (herbal not included) as its cream innner draws the eater forwards before surprising him/her with the fruity jam centre that simply begs to be left in the mouth as its flavours work away upon the taste buds.
Also, The McVities Chocolate digestive with caramel. I find to be a rather peculiar biscuit. Its main selling point i believe, is that its caramel centre works as a steel girder allowing it to be left in the tea for any length of time as the biscuit itself will not dop off. However, upon eating, you do find the usual flavours of the digestive biscuit, grown to be a favourite among many, but you do find a rather sweet caramel slice hiding betwen the chocolate and the aforementioned biscuit. I believe perhaps, that the sweetness can be a little too overpowering.
Myself and my College friends in Buxton, Derbyshire have spent many an hour sampling the delights of many biscuits (Unfortunately when this time should be more wisely spent on coursework) and have often suggested that a website should be set up for those in the same opinion as us. However, after finding your site, and also, your book, i find our work is done! and also done to a much better standard than we could have probably done. Thank you again for taking the time to share your interests with the world!
|Nicey replies: Hoorah for Ireland and Cork, or Cork as the locals call it in their own special accent. Actually we met some people from Cork once and their accents were so strong I thought they were Finnish. I was unable to speak to chap directly and he unable to speak to me, his wife had to act as an interpreter.
Also Hoorah for Derbyshire. We had a very nice weekend camping just above Matlock Bath about two weeks ago, and had a lovely cup of tea at the National Tramway Museum in Crich.
In this state of tropical weather we are having in Yorkshire (canít stand it myself, bring back the rain!), do you recommend trying iced tea? I once had this drink in Paris and it was vile and bitter. It is too hot for me to drink a normal cuppa, but I am missing it also. What can I do?
|Nicey replies: Marge,
We would never ever recommend drinking iced tea, its muck. You just need to gather yourself and have a proper cuppa, you'll be fine. Maybe get a few scones and some jam and cream and pretend you're on holiday. I have to say I'm getting quite skilled at scone making, and we have pretended to be on our holidays about 3 times in the last month.
