Jammie Dodger Review
|Reading your review of Jammie Dodgers, you say "This also makes attempts to part both biscuits somewhat futile, due to the adhesive jam". However following the biccy barrel being replenished, I discovered the elusive technique. Gripping one shortcake biscuit in each hand, one simply twists each biscuit in opposing directions, therefore stretching the jam until breaking point. The method wasn't 100% successful, the bottom biscuit has a tendency to crack if you try to pull the biscuits apart whilst twisting, but the majority of the time, i was successful. The anticlimax to all this however is that the jam is impossible to lick off wach shortcake half, rendering the process rather pointless, unless one desires to stick jammy dodger halves to the wall, in a sort of baked treat dado rail...|
||Dear Nicey and the Wife,|
Iím glad to see that you have finally turned your attentions toward the doughnut which has been under represented on your site for some time.
Doughnuts are nut just something to have with a cup of tea (or coffee if you are American), but can be a good source of entertainment when things get a bit dull in the office.
Games such as eating a doughnut without licking your lips or a challenge to see who can polish off a bag of 10 doughnuts in the shortest time are, Iím sure, enjoyed by many people across the entire country.
I was recently informed of a new (to me at least) way to add an extra dimension to doughnut consumption.† The method is to take a jam doughnut (chocolate or custard doughnuts will do just as well) and locate the hole through which the filling was added.† Next, insert the nozzle of a squirty cream can into the hole and fill the doughnut to capacity.† The doughnut is now ready to eat.
Make sure that you use a doughnut of reasonable quality, some of the cheaper ones will give under pressure and the cream will squirt out through holes or cracks in the doughnut surface.† You should also use the thick squirty cream as the light version can be a bit watery.
|Nicey replies: Morning Keith,
Personally I can take or leave a Doughnut, even a really good one. However, re-inflating them with squirty cream does seem like a harmless passtime, providing its done in an environment high in wipe clean surfaces, perhaps the bath.
Jacob's Mikado Review
|Ahh..fond memories.† Maybe it's just me,† but I used to eat Mikado biccies by scooping the jam out with my finger, then pulling off the marshmallow.|
As for Iced Vovos (or Iced Volvos as my hubby used to call them) - they're a pale shadow - they're too flat & nowhere near spongey enough.
As for me, I'm a new Tim Tam addict, and have the suck down pat.† And yes, they remind me of Penguins too - but has anyone tried the tea slurp through a Penguin yet?† We need to be told.†
I'm looking forward to a 2 week stay with my parents to relive my biccie fantasies very soon!
