Is that excessive? I am 17 weeks pregs and they say 50% less saturated fat on the packet.

BTW the biscuits are on top a lion bar at lunch which may make it worse.

feeling a bit thirsty now so off for some juice.....

YABU. If you are going to eat biscuits at least eat something more tasty. grin

I've just done the same, only dunked in a cup of tea.

the problem is if I ate something more tasty I would have to stop myself and I know I couldn't. I'm down to the last 2 now...and I've got my juice. the baby likes them.

30 minutes? Were you doing something else at the same time? Cos I think I could do that in about 6.

typing and trying giving my jaws a break - they're really cloying IYKWIM

Half a packet! What about the rest?

Yanbu, rich tea biscuits are like thin air. I can eat a whole packet without thinking about it. blush

Mmm lion bar, I haven't had one of those for years!

YANBU - I think there is something "moreish" about any biscuits but especially Rich Tea because they aren't sickly so you can eat a lot in one go.......enjoy!

wanderingsheep - I've just rediscovered the lion bars in my canteen at work - slightly chilled. Far superior to a toffee crisp and they remind me of being about 10. Just a shame they're not more widely available.

YABU - Chocolate digestives beat rich tea hands down!

Just enjoy! Life's too short to be fretting about biscuits!!

MrsJiggle86 Tue 20-Oct-09 10:49:02

YABU, rich tea urghh! Hobnobs mmm

lolapoppins Tue 20-Oct-09 11:20:17

Two chocloate digestives, choccy sides stuck together and dipped in tea. A whole packed just fell into my mouth.

And I can't even blame pregnancy blush

Easily done. Chocolate fingers next time???

TheDevilEatsBabies Tue 20-Oct-09 12:54:56

you should be eating chocolate hobnobs at the very least if you're pregnant! grin

i've just eaten a whole chocolate bar because it stopped me from coughing for 5 minutes!

BonjourIvresse Tue 20-Oct-09 12:56:09

YABU. You should have eaten better biscuits. Rich Teas are a waste of space ( and calories!)

When I was pregnant and had morning sickness it was suggested somewhere, don't know if it is nowadays, that you have a biscuit or two before getting out of bed. So I used to have, at least, two rich teas and a cup of tea before getting up everyday.

Didn't help morning sickness one bit but the biscuits were good. smile

It's taken you half an hour? Slacker! wink

Stayingscarygirl Tue 20-Oct-09 13:03:15

YABU - because you haven't shared them with the rest of us! wink

Gillyan Tue 20-Oct-09 14:07:49

In half an hr, YABU I could do it in 10 mins flat

crankytwaaaaaahhhhnky Tue 20-Oct-09 14:10:45

Blurgh. Rich Tea are pathetic excuses for biscuits.
Have an 'ob nob, woman. You're dunking for two!

PlumpkinScaryBaps Tue 20-Oct-09 14:25:51

I buy Rich Tea cos they're not that tempting so only have three one if I'm really peckish/in need of something sweetish.

But I also have them at 2 in the morning when I can't sleep with a glass of milk.

(And I wonder where those little pounds keep appearing from blushgrin)

PlumpkinScaryBaps Tue 20-Oct-09 14:27:15


(I don't make a habit of trying to sleep with a glass of milk. Am not a pervert)

I had half a packet of Fox's creams, fell asleep on the sofa for an hour then woke up and ate most of the rest of the packet. I'm 36+4 so entirely blame the baby
