Britain’s Top Five biscuits have been revealed in a recent poll released by YouGov and the results could split the nation more than Brexit!
These controversial results see the Jaffa Cake sitting in 4th place! Is it even a biscuit (a 1991 ruling decided it wasn’t) and more traditional teatime accompaniments like Rich Tea and Bourbon are nowhere to be seen.
Let us know your favourite in the comments section below.
It seems that the ‘posh’ digestive with chocolate seems to be top of the pile with its poorer plain relative sneaking in at number five.
It seems that the more traditional custard creams, jammy dodgers and garibaldis just don’t make the grade anymore.
Perhaps more controversially is the appearance of the Jaffa Cake in the mix. Considering the product’s classification as a cake or biscuit was part of a VAT tribunal in 1991 and the court found in McVitie’s favour that the Jaffa cake should be considered a cake for tax purposes – Should it even be in the running?
Just a few decades ago the choice was between broken or unbroken biscuits and many of us were more than happy to get a bag of broken biscuits from the Woolworth’s counter!
Nowadays if it doesn’t have chocolate on it barely makes the grade!
Let us know about the biscuits of your childhood? Are they still around or have they been eclipsed by the much ‘fancier’ varieties?
