I have started a new job and been given the extremely important task of going to the shop to get biscuits for the staff room at lunchtime. I want to make a good impression with my taste in biscuits. Please help! (I’ll be getting about 4 packs)

Shortbread. Caramel digestives. Milk chocolate rich tea. Crunch cream things?!

LuckyAmy1986 Wed 07-Feb-18 09:35:25

Ooh yes chocolate fingers!

For a mixed group - I'd go with Bourbons, Custard Creams, Choc Digestive and Ginger Nuts

I’m not a teacher her but I’d probably get hob nobs, choc digestives, Maryland cookies and shortbread or something else non chocolate

MiddleClassProblem Wed 07-Feb-18 09:37:38

Oh custard creams that’s a good shout for my 4th

Although I think chocolate digestives won the last poll.

Chocolate hobnobs. Viennese fingers. Ginger creams. Shortbread. Chocolate fingers.

I would mix it up.

So - packet of posh chocolate ones (either a tin with all different ones or quadruple chunk cookies or similar)

- plain ones like hobnobs

- Jaffa cakes (because everyone loves them)

- something with caramel or lemon, like the borders ones (they do butterscotch chip or lemon drizzle)

Thanks - lots of great suggestions!

Sainsbury Oaty biscuits are absolutely delicious, and very cheap. They definitely have the best cost to performance ratio of any biscuit I've ever tasted.

Party Rings! Turn the office into FUNTIMES GALORE!

Mint Oreos!

Make sure at least one packet is dairy free (Oreos and hobnobs) for any colleagues who don't eat dairy smile that kind of thoughtfulness will go a long way!

Fox's Golden Creams

FingersCrossedHard Wed 07-Feb-18 09:58:59

Coconut rings!

Anything by Fox's and if you buy digestives, they must be McVitie's.

Katedotness1963 Wed 07-Feb-18 09:59:21

Simmers chocolate chip gingers
Walkers shortbread, especially the raspberry and white chocolate ones
Rich Tea
Plain Digestives

Chocolate digestives, hob nobs, crunch cream (fabulous value & a great favourite here), and something for yourself!

Redpriestandmozart Wed 07-Feb-18 10:02:20

Whatever is on offer, nothing is refused in this house!

falsepriest Wed 07-Feb-18 10:02:45


Perfect opportunity! Never given one before grin

I’d get a variety pack with bourbons, custard creams, nice and shortbread in + choc hobnobs, Maryland cookies and pink wafers!
