Gotta say Obsydian, you are the only person who has raised any negative points about these biscuits :eyes:

These are biscuits of the Gods, make no mistake!

Also, that 16x12 looks ace, reckon we should get a wall in for the next tour Fatboy!?

Anyway, back to the toast......is there any point to marmalade that isn't thick cut?

I don't see the point to marmalade full stop really, never liked it. Its gotta be lemon curd for me or just thick, rich, real butter.

I'm liking the sound of these biscuits. Might have to forget aout cutting down for a couple of days and down a pack of these! :D

As for toast....love the stuff and as has been said, it's gotta be thick cut and you can't beat real butter spread very generously.

Anyone ever tried brown sauce on toast? Was one of my late night drunken snacks a while back and I really rather enjoyed it. Lemon Curd is a fine choice though, as is thick cut marmalade.

Thin cut marmalade? Only when there's no thick cut, and it's got to be mature!

Hmm, I tried WHITE chocolate digestives a while ago (they were in a christmassy packet) and they tasted like something was just... missing.

I'm not too keen on minty chocolate... orange chocolate though, that's the shit.

And I prefer margarine to butter. Haha, I'm just used to it.

Nestor periodically makes me a slice of toast with marmite on, then when I take a bite, tell him I don't like it and it tastes like shit, he insists that he's 'done it wrong' and that it honestly does taste good.

:rolleyes:

I can see exactly where he is coming from! :)

You either love it or loathe it. I love it ... Sammi loathes it with a passion .... and it makes him ... erm ... not so well! :lol:

Can we now debate the difference between a pikelet and a crumpet?
