What's Your Favourite Biscuit?
6 years ago
With the World Cup fast approaching, its time to get the important things organised in good time for the coming feast of football.

Obviously, I'm talking about the drinks and snacks that will be consumed whilst slouched in front of the telly for the next four weeks.

It goes without saying that the drink/snack combination of choice for the later games will be some kind of cold lager or beer, coupled with a savoury nibble - a bag of pork scratchings, for example.

However, whilst loading the van up at my local Tesco's with crates of Stella and various cholestrol heavy, overly processed salty treats, I realised that I had seriously overlooked one important thing - the 12.30, early afternoon kick-offs.

Now, starting drinking at lunch time is not something I would normally shy away from so quickly, but with back to back games for the 1st week of the tournament, I'm not sure that my rapidly ailing and battle hardened body can take the pace anymore.

Which of course, leads me to the conclusion that, whilst the 3pm and 730pm matches are fair game for boozathons, the 1230pm slot should be reserved for a slightly more refined, British custom. I refer, clearly, to the cup of tea/biscuit combination.

So, onto the conundrum of which biscuit to buy - a difficult choice that I ultimately narrowed down to a top 3 (I shall not go into my selection methods, as that would probably involve a whole new website detailing the FA cup style knockout system used).

So, to cut an already-long-story-short, here are my top 3, and I look forward to hearing yours.

1) The Milk Chocolate Hob Nob

It can never be plain, and certainly can never be the dark chocolate variety, Ladies and Gentlemen, the king of biscuits, the World Cup Winner, the often copied but never beaten, the one and only, quintessentially English, biscuit of champions, the Milk Chocolate Hob Nob.

2) The Foxs Classic

Whilst beaten fairly and squarely, and need I say comprehensively, nevertheless the runner up is still a tremendous force in the world of biscuits, and quite rightly merits its place in the biscuit tin. Not that I have a biscuit tin. The runner up, the incredible Fox's Classic.

3) The Fruit Club

Quite a shock 3rd placed for the humble, unfancied Fruit Club, but the sheer nostalgia value of gorging on these delightful dunkers during the superb 1990 World Cup, meant this was one I couldn't pass up. Except I will be washing these down with a nice cup of Tetleys, and not a bottle of Thunderbirds. The shock 3rd place - the Serbia of biscuits - the curiously old fashioned Fruit Club

If you're an American, like me, you will go to Bob Evans and get some dinner rolls, or the store and get some of the frozen variety-

And then bake em all up, and then roll around in them.... With honey-butter! Are they biscuits? Uh.... In some parts of the world? Yes.

Also I am going to smear this stuff on everything that doesn't move-

Yeah, this is a pretty amazing post lol

Is this a comeback attempt after Neville was unfaithful?

Penguin Biscuits


Jaffa Cakes (which are a biscuit, not a cake, right?)

Unfortunately I can't really get either here in NZ but I can dream. The best biscuit in New Zealand is a baked sheep turd, dipped in some yellow custard-like substance
LumpOfCelery (Chelsea) 6 years ago
Nice sheep refernce, you could ship them biscuits from Australia
LumpOfCelery (Chelsea) 6 years ago
