The results are in! After Traveling For Biscuits to England recently, and tasting the above sampling that was so generously provided by the Commissar and Convenor of EWRB at our temporary place of residence, the Sorority House, a new understanding of British, make that European cookies has been achieved. The selections shown in the image above were swirled, chewed, swallowed and contemplated in order to ascertain a clear winner. There were heated discussions about the findings. Stay tuned for the details as to what was said about which by the participants.
Serious about biscuits
It begins. The official tasting by a few of the Meet At Malvern crew that is. First up is Jaffa Cakes, said to be a favorite of The Head Honcho himself. It might be that HH has entirely different sorts of taste buds than the test subjects for here is what they had to say:
Y-Sickly sweet gunge (unsure of the spelling on this word, but phoentically correct.)
G-Atrocious, rubbery, like stale twinkies. Wrong, similar to toe jam. This removes the excuse of staleness as the problem with a previous taste taste done in the US.
Uh oh. Looks like the panel is not amused by these biscuits. Let us try another round, this time Dark Chocolate Hobnobs by McVities:
Y-Sawdust With chocolate
G-No taste after chocolate

Message From The Commissar:
Please remember that all of the above taste test participants are FOREIGN.
It is a well documented fact that FOREIGN people have seriously DEGRADED taste buds and therefore cannot be trusted.
Everybody knows that Jaffa Cakes are beyond reproach and perform a vital role in the co-alition government. The Foreign Secretary, for example, is a Jaffa Cake (cunningly disguised as William Hague).
I am prepared to allow this sort of dissension once: but only once. Any more of this sort of stuff and I will have to bring in the censors.
