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

They are biscuit cocaine.

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

Oh how did I forget Choco Leibniz!!

Actually another fave is the Oreo.

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.

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

I've had Noblice.

I wouldn't recommend them.

You are not unreasonable to ask this

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

The flies in fruit shortcake haven't been squashed.

Meloria Sun 15-Jun-14 21:39:53

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

Fideliney Sun 15-Jun-14 21:25:05

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

snice Sun 15-Jun-14 21:24:56

Squashed fly biscuits are fruit shortcake not garibaldis surely?

Fideliney Sun 15-Jun-14 21:24:04

I've heard noblice were very popular in Tudor times.

Choco Leibniz!

Shortbread fingers, coconut rings, Nice biscuits smile

I actually find jammy dodgers a bit dry. .. chocolate hobnobs are the best but I'd agree digestive was the "typical" biscuit

Fideliney Sun 15-Jun-14 21:21:17

But Elizabeth I didn't even marry!

Are you a cobwebby spinster? That would explain your inability to eat biscuits I think.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sun 15-Jun-14 21:20:30

I'm daydreaming of noblice

Chippednailvarnish Sun 15-Jun-14 21:20:22

But are you following the teachings of Galileo when deciding on whether to have children?

Chippednailvarnish Sun 15-Jun-14 21:19:07

I'm now daydreaming about bouquets of Jammy dodgers in vases around my house.

Meloria Sun 15-Jun-14 21:17:53

I'm stinking rich. I'm richer than the Queen. I'm even richer than Elizabeth I.

miffybun73 Sun 15-Jun-14 21:16:33

Rich Tea
Custard Cream
Bourbon Cream
Malted Milk

Fideliney Sun 15-Jun-14 21:16:00

the sort of biscuit that a modern day Galileo would not mistake for a flower.

If you can't tell a jammy dodger from a flower, you clearly have bigger problems then the contents of Cameron Diaz's uterus.

My next cross-stitch fridge magnet projects grin

dark chocolate digestive, and it has to be McVitie's.

Not all that keen on 'real' Jammie Dodgers, prefer the fake ones you get in family selections. Real ones are too shortbready.
