Christmas is coming
Yes, and no doubt the goose is getting fat. Our Turkey for example has left its paddock for Chelmsford we were informed on Saturday by the nice man at the farm where it was raised. However at this time of year our biscuit thoughts inexorably turn to at least one burning issue. What is the precise composition of the Crawford's Rover selection this year?
The Rover selection is the biscuit barometer of the nation, reflecting our most basic biscuit aspirations. Over the years we have seen the overdue departure of the Pink Wafer, reflecting the fact that practically nobody likes them. In recent times we've been perplexed by the appearance of the 'White Bourbon' or 'Dark Vanilla Cream Finger' to give it its technical name. The Rover selection will in the new year revert back to its normal duties as catering biscuits, appearing at one day conferences, seminars and the occasional two day intensive workshop for heads of departments.
This year the line up is as follows, Milk and Plain Chocolate Sweetmeal Digestive, Shortcake, Custard Cream, Bourbon, White Bourbon, Jam Ring, Coconut Ring, Hazelnuts and oat chock cream, Treacle Cream.
