Impressive results of the Biscuit Poll

We asked you to cast your votes, and you responded in your thousands, hoorah! So now we can reveal the results of your favourite biscuits, your most regularly eaten biscuit and which one you really can't stand.

You might want to make yourself a particularly comforting cup of tea as the results are bound to be shocking and provocative or mildly dull depending on how seriously you take biscuit popularity polls. Be forewarned gazing upon such ultimate truths may forever alter the course of your life, then again it may not.

  • Digestives scored top in a our regulars but only 15th place in favourites. 92% of Digestive eaters would rather eat something else.
  • The same pattern is repeated in the Rich Tea, 5th in the regulars but 28th in the favourites and 93% of Rich tea eaters would rather something else.
  • Custard Cream and Bourbon eaters are much more satisfied with their chosen biscuits, with 2 out of 3 choosing it as their favourite as well as their regular.
  • When we factor in loyalty, that is the ratio of favourite to regular, we find the Chocolate Digestives rule the regulars and Chocolate Hobnobs the favourites
  • The Dark Choco Liebniz puts in an impressive 3rd place in favourites when we factor in loyalty
  • My favourite the Abbey Crunch despite not being available for two years pulls in more favourite votes than the Penguin, Cadburys Fingers, Viscount and Rocky.
  • No surprise that the Pink Wafer is the yukkiest of all, but what have the poor old Fig Roll and Wagonwheel done to deserve 2nd and 3rd place?
  • Coconut biscuits take 10,11 and 12th place in the yukkiest, with the poorly named Nice heading them up.
