To think three is the proper amount of biscuits to have?

Dh has just taken the biscuit tin away from me as I reached for a third. He says two biscuits is the normal quota and three would be greedy. I say three biscuits minimum is the correct amount to have with your coffee.

I'm right, aren't I? AIBU?

<disclaimer, this is lighthearted and Dh is not an abusive biscuit denier>

Has to be an add number and one is never enough!

I agree with you op. The first one hardly counts as you're just getting into it!!

Giant cookies - 1
Ginger nuts or rich tea fingers - at least 4

It depends entirely on where you are in your cycle.

Blimey. I think three is greedy. One or two. Sorry.

Bloodybridget Sat 28-May-16 18:26:03

Three is greedy! But in the case of plain chocolate Choco Leibniz, unavoidable.

Until the packet is empty blush

We're talking Bourbons here. They're not big, so three is about right.

mumtomaxwell Sat 28-May-16 18:27:05

Half a packet is about right smile

3 (or 5 if we're talking Maryland Chocolate Chip) is the correct answer.

2 is just nonononono. It is not aesthetically pleasing and only a philistine would take 2.

I'm not really a biscuit eater but I think 2 or 3 is probably a decent amount.

MrsTerryPratchett Sat 28-May-16 18:30:35

Bourbons? None is the current number. Chocolate Hobnobs? How many are in a packet?

I'm not a biscuit lover, so two is fine for me. Three would seem a bit much to me to be honest. Sorry OP grin

Amy214 Sat 28-May-16 18:31:37

I normally eat 1 maybe 2 if im eating them without a cup of tea but if theres tea involved then i can eat about 6 digestives blush love dunking them in my tea

EastMidsMummy Sat 28-May-16 18:32:24

Three is the right number.

someonestolemynick Sat 28-May-16 18:33:44

3 is excessive... If we are talking packsgrin

notamummy10 Sat 28-May-16 18:33:45

I've been known to eat an entire pack in one sitting... It does depend on the biscuit though, I wouldn't eat an entire pack of digestives but I definitely would if it was Jaffa cakes, custard/bourbon creams and chocolate fingers!

BluebellTheDonkey Sat 28-May-16 18:34:44

2 seems sensible. But I don't usually stop at 2 grin
Where I work (school), everyone has 1 at break time in the staffroom and I have to stop myself reaching for more.

TenWineBottles Sat 28-May-16 18:34:46

It depends on the biscuit surely?

2x rich tea and other boring offerings

3x normal biscuits eg. bourbons/custard creams/ginger snaps

A few extra full packet of the good stuff like jaffa cakes/jammy dodgers grin

Two is the proper number to accompany a hot beverage.

Three biscuits is debauchery and is only one or two steps away from swinging from the chandeliers with Bob from no.87. Be careful OP.
