If a Jammie Dodger isn't a typical biscuit then what is?!

You've found me out! I'm a ginger Miss Havisham, stalking the biscuit aisle in a huge Tudor-style ruff.

But beautiful. I see hmm smile

I bid you all adieu. I'm off to bed to dream of all the biscuits I could be eating.

Garibaldis are the ones that are rolled so all the currants are squashed flat.

The flies in fruit shortcake haven't been squashed.

You are not unreasonable to ask this

I've had Noblice.

I wouldn't recommend them.

Got to be a Hobnob, certainly not Rich Tea or as Peter Kay called them (from 1.07 on!) "fucking one dips" grin

Oh, Biscuits....fuel of my youth. I wouldn't eat one now if you paid me but the biscuit tin hierarchy in my house of origin was thus: Fox Party Rings, jammy dodger, chocolate bourbon, chocolate digestive, ginger nut, custard cream, plain digestive, disgusting Jaffa cakes. Only if you were desperate, at the end of Mum's shopping cycle, would you go for a ginger-impregnated stale Jaffa envy <--vomit. Very occasionally you would find those purple-foil wrapped M&S Teacakes in there. That was a very good day indeed.

Oh how did I forget Choco Leibniz!!

Actually another fave is the Oreo.

Choco Liebniz is hardly 'typical'! They are the queen of biscuits.

They are biscuit cocaine.
