I'm only starting this thread because I had a chocolate coated malted milk earlier and it was an absolute delight

perhaps you've had a biscuit once that needed to be commented on... do it here

thanks

I am going through a massive dark chocolate digestive phase. Last Friday night, after the Pobpah show, everyone went and bought booze from the shop and I bought a packet of digestives. That's how close we are right now.

I am very fond also of a Greek brand of biscuits called Papadopoulos, especially the ones filled with banana flavour cream. It sounds disgusting but now my brother works for them and he tells me they are using really good ingredients, so it's all systems go. You can buy them on Amazon in the US, bizarrely.

racist.

I was feeling strangely low and empty all day, so I had three chocolate digestives with my cup of tea this afternoon and I felt loads better then. Hooray for the chocolate digestives!

Chocolate digestives are one of my favourite management tools. No one says I'm doing a crap job if they're munching biscuits.

I prefer a nice bourbon myself.

Last night I came home from The Casiotone For The Painfully Alone gig and my housemate had made orange and ginger cookies. It's just what I needed a nice cup of tea and a biccy after the hassel getting home.

Hurrah for flatmates baking!

Do you know what I like: a soft custard cream. One out of a packet that's been left open for a few days.

I am having one (ok, two) right now! It's soggy from being dunked, as I can't bite properly, but utterly lovely.

Are you having it liquidised through a straw?

I think I just made myself feel ill.

And all this time I thought y'all were eating little oval wood pieces used to hold furniture together and I'd often think to myself, "Those fools! They're missing out on far more delicious snacks like cookies."

Biscuits are terrible for me, i cant stop eating them. At the moment its malted milk,Tescos butter toffee cookies (the heroin of cookies) and last night,an entire box of chocolate fingers. I am gonna try and go "clean" today and not eat any biscuits at all.

Panic is gripping the UK as the national fig roll shortage starts to bite!

Are the corners of fig rolls kind of sharp or is that my fevered half-forgotten imaginings? I think they're a little sharp.

it's too personal; they're in love with their own guile

Some of them are. The badly designed ones, probably produced in Hertfordshire. But the proper ones aren't.

I think I'm sticking with custard creams, though these promised-land fig rolls are intriguing.

I hadn't even thought about fig rolls for ages until I read that there was a shortage of them. And now I've actually thought about them, I could flipping murder one. Except I can't, cos there's a shortage of them.

It's like a symbol of my whole stupid life!

The best biscuit in recent memory, has been, for me, Marks and Spencers extremely chocolatey biscuit rounds (at least I think that's what they're called). There is a tiny donut shaped biscuit in the centre - just enough to give a crisp texture - coated - well not really coated, more entombed, in the thickest slab of tasty milk choc I've ever had the good fortune of encountering in a biscuit scenario.
