Just came across this site. How very British!

http://www.nicecupofteaandasitdown.com/

from the Biscuit section on the site:

Quote

How to spot biscuits

    * They come in packets
    * They have two sides
    * You could dunk them in tea

Entry level

    * They come in clear cellophane wrappers
    * They aren't so nice that you could eat a whole packet
    * They are homogeneous

Mid range

    * Anything with a currant, or some sort of fruit in it
    * Twin layer affair with some sort of cream up the middle
    * Wrapper has pictures on it.
    * Some sort of USP

Luxury

    * Any thing with chocolate on top.
    * May be in a cardboard box

Briliant! And it even satisfactorily dispells that common jaffa cake is-it-a-cake-or-a-biscuit myth!

I particularly liked the taxonomy of biscuits

It's a very clever site. Well, it's obviously not actually the site that's clever, more the person(s) behind it.

I'll never visit the site again if they don't!
