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.

Fisherman's breakfast is only proper breakfast.

My dad always had a kitkat with his coffee on a morning, and that would run him until tea time. He smoked about 40 a day mind you.
I love a kitkat and a coffee on a morning. Chocolate hobnobs are a luxury treat sometimes.

It's a nice cup of tea and two hobnobs for me.

Biscuits are just sugar, fat and carbs, you mindless children.

What about Belvita? They keep them near the other breakfast stuff in the supermarket and if I eat one on a morning my tummy is nice and full until lunch time.

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.

Today I've had a biscuit with jam. I'd highly recommend it.
|>>|| No. 13737
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.

It's not November yet, they can't! Tesco wont have the shortbread jammie dodgers until at least Halloween! This is an outrage!

When's the last time any of you saw an advert for Wagon Wheels? Is it just one of these brands that relies heavily on everybody's nostalgia?
|>>|| No. 13743
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.

That doesn't sound like the kind of sentence you'd hear in the crew room at 5AM.
|>>|| No. 13745
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.
Buy Wagon Wheels

They did taste awful, and I recall they were as hard as bullets.
When you look back, it's a wonder they even passed muster as a "sweet".

I was the little bags wot dun it. I'd eat any rubbish sweets if they came in a dinky little bag.

Pop a Skittle on top and it could pass as an acceptable light bite for a wedding.

The chocolate ones on the other hand...
Also, while we're on it, does anyone remember the little balls that came in a similar small bag, tasted if orange I think they were like... Spider Man branded somehow?
|>>|| No. 13757
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.
|>>|| No. 13762
Confirmed, not sure what was in these but I don't recall them tasting like cheese. It was more like a mix of sugar and salt inside a crispy shell.

My mom likes them.
That or she just enjoys irritating the fuck out of me by eating them with her mouth open.

I'm from the Midlands and I've never heard anyone say mom. He's an impostor. Let's get him, boys.

I have decided to start making my own breakfast biscuits that have less sugar. Here is the recipe:
100g oat flakes
100g brown flour
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.
|>>|| No. 13774
That's essentially the recipe I used except i filtered porridge oats to get oat flour. Sometimes I add a little milk - I can't remember it's good or not.

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.
|>>|| No. 13799
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.

Seeing as we're debating the finer points of breakfast biscuits, can anyone suggest a decent lunch marmalade?
|>>|| No. 13801
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.
|>>|| No. 13802
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.

If 19th-century newspapers are to be believed, Victorian gentlemen were martyrs to an epidemic of flatulence. McVitie’s is credited with having invented the digestive biscuit as a remedy for their disordered stomachs. In fact the idea that biscuits would cure “windy colic” was nothing new. In the 15th century, caraway biscuits were eaten to comfort the stomach. In 1892, McVitie’s added baking powder – thought to guard against indigestion – to sweetmeal biscuits.
This book sounds like required reading, for everyone. Comes out at the end of the month.
