I just spotted (slightly late) your news item on McVities Slices, and the fact that they recommend serving them chilled. This reminded me of a particularly nice way of eating Bourbons when the long hot lazy days of summer roll around again (and I suppose also through the miserable drizzly days of winter if you wish). Very simply, pop the bourbons into the freezer for an hour or two, and eat them like little mini choc-ices, especially good for the younger biscuit appreciator.
The chocolatey middle layer sets solid, which is surprisingly nice, however the effects on dunking characteristics are relatively un-researched at this point, perhaps a hardy soul will brave a frozen bourbon before summer and tell us how they got on, otherwise I'll get back to you in June.
Many thanks again for keeping us all sharp on biscuit related matters,
PS Can I just mention 'Tea Money'. It's not relevant I just like your kitty icon.
Ginger Nut Review
|re: ginger nuts|
my dad always told us children that if we could smash a ginger nut into three with our elbow (whilst holding the biscuit in the palm of our other hand) we would get a wish. This no doubt aided our basic dexterity as my brothers and myself can hit a ginger nut into three with our elbows every time. Alas, when I say "every time" i mean every time and it is socially embarressing to be drinking tea in company, reach for the biccies, pick up a ginger nut and automatically smash it against my elbow and smile in satisfaction at getting three bits. Only then do you realise what you were doing. Did my dad make this up to torment or does the ginger nut three bits wish exist??
