Anyone else like having biscuits for breakfast?

My usual breakfast is a mug of warm milk and 5 digestive biscuits. Sometimes I get myself custard creams.

These days I just have a cup of red-bush during my first meeting of the day. What I want is irrelevant, I will spend the maximum possible time in bed unless it involves my morning wank or having a fag.

The thing about biscuits is they are full of sugar which you don't need first thing in the morning. If you must then just have lunch earlier.

Belvita is a lunch bar with dreams above its station. One of those pre-packaged wastes of money that people don't understand they can make from home (and when they do they realise how much sugar is involved).

If I get up at a reasonable breakfast time (not that common as I work early mornings and sleep late on days off) I will have porridge with fruit in it. Biscuits for breakfast feel like something a child would have, but then I have been known to get a cup of soup or bovril from the drinks machine in the crew room at 5am, much to the horror of my colleagues.

Have you ever wondered why those orange, ubiquitous confirmations of the Chrimbo Time Hangover - the "Biscuits for Cheese" boxes - have little Hovises in? One reason is because Jacob's aren't McVities. The other is because some mad bastard intended for all such as Digestives to be adulterated as you would prepare a butter puff when it's the only other thing left in the box, and you happen to still be peckish on Boxing Day.

I reckon chocolate advertising in general is something that sticks in the cultural memory so you only need to do it every few decades. People still quote the Jaffa Cake advert from the 90s and as I was reading your post the Wagon Wheels song come into my head even if I couldn't remember the words:


We all remember the time Maltesers thought they'd associate their chocolate with disabled sexuality. For me that's forever now.

Anecdotal, but I love a wagon wheel. I have no idea what their market share is like, but they do well enough that they have 2 varieties. I noticed when having a particular "mad one" trying out different pop combos with bourbon, the Raspberry Pepsi max tastes like drinking a jammie Wagon Wheel and it isn't half bad.

I suspect they date back to a time when anything with lots of sugar in was an indulgence and they had a very low bar for what was good.
Just noticed the filename and am a bit puzzled by that.

I have decided to start making my own breakfast biscuits that have less sugar. Here is the recipe:

100g oat flakes
100g brown flour
100g butter
little bit of sugar

Melt the butter and mix all the ingredients together. Form into little biscuits and bake on a greased tray at 180C for about 20 mins.

A delicious digestive in the morning isn't exactly hardtack now.

I'd agree they don't go well with orange juice in the morning for some reason. I have eaten ginger biscuits with a segment of orange or tangerine and a dob of cream though, that is also delicious. More of a desert than breakfast though.

Wonderful news- Twin packs of chocolote Hobnobs for £1.50 in Tescos.

Hobnobs aren't a breakfast biscuit mind you, but what else hits the spot like that when you've just got in from work and put your feet up with a brew.

I knew someone would say this and I'm upset by it, mostly because I don't have a well-formed argument; but I know that digestives are for breakfast, while a hobnob is more a late-night dessert, oats or not. I think it's to do with the sweetness of a hobnob.

For lunch you say - you old devil.

I would suggest that Orange & Lime is allowed outside normal hours. I only ever buy Wilkin & Sons in a marmalade, whilst I prefer the French-themed Bonne Maman if it's any kind of berry.

I do accept though given modern supply chains, and manufacturing techniques, they're all probably made in the same factory in Barnsley or something.

Just looked them up and Wilkin & Sons is still a private company that's been operating since 1885. I'd be happy to support them, maybe I'll get someone their damson or quince liqueur for a stocking filler.
