If you have the misfortune to land on their redirection page something TERRIBLE happens.

Along with the usual apology that you've been directed to a page that no longer exists, they have a pithy messages that states

You found it! We've been looking for that biscuit everywhere ...

And then next to it, next to it

<<sit down and brace yourselves for the horror>>

A picture of a partially eaten


Honestly, seriously? Do you know nothing?

It's a cake! Cake. Not biscuit. It's a cake. angry

How could you?

I am clearly so NBU it hurts. I DEMAND a picture of a Jammy Dodger with haste.

Jaffa cakes are with the biscuits in Tesco = they are cakes. (Tesco's have no sense) grin

But how do you get to those pages? I've never seen them on MN at all. <lost>

ItsYoniYappy Sun 21-Apr-13 20:46:37

I detest Jaffa cakes. You now get Jaffa cake muffins. <shudder>

I was led to this page this week. I'm sure I got a jammy dodger.

If someone does a wrong link you get it.

I don't really. I just always wanted to say that after seeing it on spaced years ago!

And I agree with you anyway. They are most certainly cakes!

Jaffa cakes are disgusting, that's what they are.

Zombie is of course correct.
HMRC weighed up the evidence - see here:

and eventually decided that McVitie's could class them as biscuits.

HoneyDragon Sun 21-Apr-13 23:30:05

They're not biscuits aaaaaaafgh! Rage! Aaaargh angry

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 22-Apr-13 00:32:17

Oh, fuck. I meant and eventually decided that McVitie's could class them as CAKES.

Cakes, NOT biscuits. blush

Jaffa Cakes are cakes because they go hard

Pringles were officially declared not to be crisps in 2008 as they don't contain enough potato but the courts changed their mind in 2009 and now they are confused

EmpressOfThe7OceansLovesMN Mon 22-Apr-13 13:20:30

:head tilt: Do you have ishoos with biscuit / cake classification, Honey?

What about Yorkshire puddings and Kendal mint cake?

FanjoPaterson Mon 22-Apr-13 13:28:42

I have a garibaldi. Erkh, dead fly pie <boak>

MNHQ, if you don't want them jaffas, please do pass them here.m

Ta mucky. <not bothered as to cake/biscuit issue>

HoneyDragon Mon 22-Apr-13 13:29:41

Yorkshire pudding can be served with syrup or cream.

And Kendal Mint Cake shares more resemblance to cake than owt else.

There is no funking logic in declaring a Jaffa cake a biscuit ... It's a fucking bastard cake.

HoneyDragon Mon 22-Apr-13 13:30:01

Fucking. Stoopid autocorrect.

FanjoPaterson Mon 22-Apr-13 13:33:06

Why the Jesus H Christ would you ruin a Yorkshire pud with friffing syrup or cream? Why? WHY? WHY?

SconeInSixtySeconds Mon 22-Apr-13 13:34:58

fanjo you eat one with gravy first... Then for pud it's Yorkshire pud again!

Fenton Mon 22-Apr-13 13:52:12

It is a biscuit..

let me finish

...shaped and sized cake

TSSDNCOP Mon 22-Apr-13 14:03:38

I just bought a pack in Sainsbo.

They were RIGHT UNDER a banner sign saying "BISCUITS"

I thought of you all exploding with The Rage.

Then I came home and ate them with my brew.

Biscuit is a very funny word grin
