SUPER TOPICAL PS4 CHAT: Favourite Biscuits?

MattGardner |  Oct. 24, 2013 at 15:54

So Late's comment on the PS4 bulletin really made me want a biscuit too, but then I started wondering which biscuit would be best.

So here it is, the watercooler topic on Dealspwn for the day is...

What's your favourite type of biscuit?

I'm going with Caramel Digestives.

I'm all about the chocolate digestives myself. Caramel is just too busy for my tastes, especially once dunked.

That said, I do like Garibaldis, and not just because I'm a Babylon 5 fan.

Busy? BUSY? It's that glorious slightly chewy centre that makes it! Plus, it acts as a glue to hold the biscuit together when you dunk.

Definitely Hobnobs, for me.

And whilst I like a bit of chocolate, don't dare to spoil my hobnobs by putting chocolate on them. I'll have them as God intended, thankyouverymuch.

Corn thin or Oat cake with some almond butter on top - yom.

I'm a big biscuit fan, which was really bad as I spent six years working next door to a biscuit factory. I spent half my life in their factory shop... :(

They all have their places depending on circumstance and requirements. Dunking, I go with Late. Hobnobs are king! I find gingernuts a close second though.

Otherwise, I know there was a big thing about Jaffa cakes not being cakes but biscuits, but then they proved it is a cake by making a massive one. I think. I call shenanigans though, its a biscuit, and I choose them as the definitive biscuit.

Have you seen you can now get giant Jaffa Cakes in the supermarket?

It's gonna get messy if you try dunking that bad boy! ;)



Turns out it's not just a bigger version of the normal biscuit/cake, but has it's
innards rearranged. Probably a good thing, really - the jaffa orange bit would likely
be sickly if they did that.

If the jaffa orange was that big, you could detach it and use it as a gelatinous frisbee that people catch with their faces, with the frisbee getting progressively smaller.

I'm not sure why on earth you'd do that, but you could.

Hobnobs are bad, mmkay. Too more-ish. Like Fox's jam ring things. Beaut.

I got really excited for a minute then, up until I realised it was a cop out :( kind of like those giant Easter
Creme eggs, I was so disappointed when I realised they were hollow...!

Chocolate Hobnobs for me! Can't help but splash out when they're on offer, and they only last a couple of days afterwards :(

Worth it!

I was a Custard Creme addict when I was younger, but these days if place a pile of shortbread down I can promise they'll be devoured in seconds.

That said, if there's a cup of tea nearby there's only one thing for it - a Penguin bar to do a Penguin straw.

My god, penguin straws FTW!

Every day's a school day... I've never heard of using a choccy biscuit as a straw before!

I'm not a dunker, but am keen to try this phenomenon out.

It'll change the way you think of tea, I guarantee it. Basically, bite off two corners diagonal from each other, and then use it as a straw. After a second or two take it out, turn it around and eat the damn thing. It take some practice to get it just right, but oh man...

You can pretty much do it with almost any wrappered chocolate bar. Penguins, twirls and chunky kit kats I find the best though.
