In Praise Of Biscuits
by Russell Turner - 19:39 on 09 June 2016
There are deluded people who believe that the best biscuits are Hob Nobs, and others who can't see beyond KitKats. Other sad snack lovers consider that there's nothing better than cheap custard creams.
They're all wrong, because The Best Biscuit In The World was the Dark Chocolate Ginger produced by Borders in Lanarkshire. 'Was', because Borders have improved perfection by creating Dark Chocolate Gingers & Orange. Taste one and you'll never want anything else.
They were launched in April, exclusive to Scottish Tescos, so it may be that this acme of baking excellence is not yet available in England. If it isn't, it will be worth the wait.
Horticultural Update: The Rural Retreat avoided recent meteorological dramas (although thunder could be heard in the distance) but I kept Kawasaki San at home in favour of lawn maintenance. More took place today, plus strumming and weed hoicking. The result is a garden that looks almost respectable (from a distance). Still lots to do though.
