Dad's Cookies Review
Nicey replies: Thanks for sharing that brush with biscuit celebrities with us.

Khong Guan creamy chocolate biscuits Review
Nicey replies: Thanks Larry,

I think the basic nub of what you are saying is that we managed to try the really grotty ones.

Steve White
Nicey replies: Fighting our corner I think pouring water over a tea bag to rinse the tea from it is definitely errant and slightly dangerous behaviour as tea needs steeping not washing.

Other than that ideological difference we seem to be on good terms and thanks for dropping by.


Nicey replies: Well we should respect other peoples cultures and traditions just as we would ask them to respect ours. She can certainly carry on calling them cookies as is her cultural heritage. She should however understand that nobody will know what she is going on about, as they are called biscuits here, and that she will run the very real risk of being left out of sharing the really good biscuits if she can't call them by the correct name.

Our next door neighbour is Canadian and he frequently makes the effort to call biscuits biscuits. (Woo I just wrote biscuits twice!)

Dad's Cookies Review
Nicey replies: We certainly remember the late Playbox biscuit, which other NCOTAASD readers mention frequently too, and have an entry in our Paleolithic Biscuits section which has a nice picture of a Playbox tin.

Peek Frean in Canada was a conseqence of the thriving export business in British biscuits to the now commonwealth nations in the early part of the 20th century. Peek Frean based in Bermondsey South London, built a bakery in 1949 in O'Conner Drive, East York, Toronto, and started supplying 'fresh baked' biscuits into the local Canadian market. When Peek Frean, Huntley and Palmer then Jacobs merged to form Associated Biscuits the brand began to take a bit of a back seat in the UK as iconic products from all three jostled for attention. However in Canada which lacked this sibling rivalry Peek Frean continued to be the recognised brand. Take overs by Nabisco, then Danone kept the names both here in the UK and in Canada. The last set take overs saw Danone selling Peek Freans Canada back to the Kraft Group who owns Nabisco too.
