Garibaldi's? A biscuit so crap it's not even banned by weightwatchers, because no-one in their right mind would choose to eat it?

Does anybody like those titanium-hard Peanut Cookie things? They're the punishment biscuit. Somebody must eat them because they're a regular on the supermarket biccy shelves. I just wondered who they were and whether they've still got any teeth left after tackling a packet.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Do Bourbons offend you that much? :wink:

I'm quite chuffed that a totally random thread has generated it's third page actually. Doing my bit for the forum and all that. Coming soon: Carpets Vs Laminate Flooring: which is better?
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

The answer to that would obviously be ceramic tiles, because someone's always got to butt in with a third option. :D

That pretender! It never tastes of very much - I can't understand the attraction of it. People even make cheesecakes and milkshakes out of it.

Oh, I forgot. I discovered these last year. They are The Best Biscuit Ever. I haven't bought a pack for many moons, though...

But ONLY the originals. The copies are inferior, although some get quite close (Heron Foods were doing some nice rip-off versions earlier this year).

Me too! The green one!!! Had to get it!!!! And it ALWAYS tasted like boring censored. Because it was STILL a bloody Penguin and Penguins were dull, crap, weak biscuits and the colours were there just to delude and confuse.

I would agree with that, but strangely the mini ones you get in small tubs taste better.

I am partial to the good old Viscount.

They're the bisciut invader equivalent of the grey squirrel imo. The greedy grey squrrel was imported from the USA and has managed to thoroughly displace the lovely british red squirrel almost everywhere. The tasteless Oreo has done the same thing to Gypsy Creams (sadly extinct) and Romany Creams (almost extinct) and obviously has designs on the Custard Cream and Bourbon market.
If you buy Oreos the USA wins. Every time you buy an Oreo a liitle british biscuit fairy chokes to death and turns into dog poo that you step in and accidentally walk into the house.

Gypsy creams are a great loss to me. Not on the scale of Toast Toppers obviously but I feel pangs. Definite pangs.
For a while there was a Gypsy Cream that had orange flavour cream. Chocolate and orange are meant for each other in the same way cheese was always destined to cop off with onion and such a biscuit was a beautiful munch indeed. Alas, they seemed to be shortlived, killed by a corporate suit no doubt related to the hated Toast Topper destroyer. They're all the same clan of joykillers in my book. Meanwhile Fig Rolls roll on. Don't talk to me about justice.

The filling of an Oreo is unflavoured toothpaste whereas the biscuit could be considered chocolatey in the same way that they regard that impostor Hershey's as actually being chocolate.
