Today I have been doing a Very Brave And Noble Thing.
I know, I know, the things I do for you, but you don’t need to thank me, just consider my festive biscuit findings my Christmas gift to you.
Fox’s sent me a selection of their Christmas biscuits to try and I, selflessly, have been testing them out, so I can recommend to you the six biscuits I think you need this Christmas. And I mean need. A Christmas without a tin of chocolate biscuits is like a tumbler without a gin and tonic in it. Just pointless.
So without further ado, I bring you your six essential Fox’s Christmas biscuits:
Milk chocolate jaffa viennese
From the Fox’s Chocolate Edition box, this is a truly wonderous biscuit, topped with jaffa and thick milk chocolate.
Good for: Enjoying all the deliciousness of a Jaffa Cake without the worry of the biscuit versus cake debate. This is definitely a biscuit.
Dark chocolate fudge sundae
From the same box, this is a biscuit for those who mean business. I mean come on, look at the name, it’s practically a pudding in a biscuit. It’s Christmas though. It would be rude not too.
Good for: dieters who want the fun of a massive slice of chocolate cake whilst at the same time being able to say ‘What me? No, I just had a biscuit.’
These are so good, they come in a box all by themselves. Crunchy biscuit, gooey caramel, and thick milk chocolate. When Boyfriend saw these he made a strange gargling noise like when Homer Simpson sees a doughnut.
Good for: distracting boyfriends when you have ‘accidental’ January sale purchases you need to sneak into the wardrobe.
Mini choc rings
I’m sure I don’t need to spell this one out. They are party rings, but chocolate, and mini. Party rings. Chocolate. Mini. See?
Three desirable biscuity attributes, but all in one biscuit.
Good for: Lunchboxes, so long as you don’t mind getting disdainful looks from the posher mums.
Jam ‘n’ cream
This is an odd one for me. There is something about them that sort of turns my stomach a little bit, and yet when I eat them, I want another one. They are my olive of the biscuit world – horribly moorish.
Good for: When you’re feeling daring. Go on, you know you want to.
The bourbon cream
The Jam ‘n’ cream can be found in the Fabulously Fox’s tin, along with all the classics including one of my all time favourite biscuits – the bourbon. Biscuit perfection.
Good for: Anything. Absolutely anything.
What’s your favourite Christmas biscuit?
Nice job! I will thank you next time as I am not the biggest biscuits kind of a person…I would thank you million times for the same research for cupcakes! :))))
I’ve caught some winter bug, so I’m sticking to plain old digestives this holiday :( Good call on the jaffa-cake substitute though. Will try those when I feel better ;)
The introduction of the baking of processed cereals including the creation of flour provided a more reliable source of food. Egyptian sailors carried a flat, brittle loaf of millet bread called dhourra cake, while the Romans had a biscuit called buccellum.:
