Whilst desperately trying to find out yesterday whether or not there’s a sprout festival being held this year, I came across the devastating news that we missed a major biscuit event a couple of months ago.
I suggest the following action must be taken immediately…
I believe the time has come my dear biscuit loving friends for us to consider having a group of biscuit spotters akin to the twitchers found in the ornithological world. Something similar has worked well for me in the past after I’d mourned the loss of the plain chocolate Hob Nob, only to be alerted a few months later by a very excited blogging bear that they’d returned to Tesco’s.
HFW has already bought us news of the Hail Dunkers biscuit, but sadly it has yet to find its way onto the shelves of any of my local supermarkets or into the pages of a Google Search (apart from HFW’s original sighting). Perhaps you can help?
I also bear news of another new and wondrous biscuit, recently spotted at a food festival in Worcester. It would appear this event was a most enlightened one as the local mayor performed a biscuit dunking ceremony whilst opening the show.
It seems that the biscuit has been constructed in a special way using a layering technique, reinforced with slithers of sweet potato and coated with egg before baking. This has enabled it to smash the dunking world record previously held by the humble milk chocolate digestive. Maximum immersion time has been expanded from 25 seconds to an impressive 1 minute 17 seconds, a feat guaranteed to save even the most absent minded of dunkers from that dreaded mush at the bottom of the mug.
It’s rumoured that this latest superdunker may be found roosting at this establishment in Worcestershire, the scene of other mind boggling creations such as the sprout and five-a-day cakes. Whilst its dunking properties have been much apart from a passing comment from the biscuit’s creator there’s currently no report available on how tasty this biscuit might be. Or not.
If a visit to the home roost draws a blank, then it is believed the next best chance of spotting this biscuit in full flight may be at next year’s Spring Gardening Show at Malvern: where the creator, Felice Tocchini, was regularly seen last time, accompanied by his 5-a-day cake.
