Which is best? And before anybody asks "what's the point in this thread?", just remember that there is also an ongoing diary for member's visits to the bogs in this very section of the forum! Besides, there's nothing like a completely random and insignificant topic to put to the vote is there? No, of course not :P

I will put forward the Bourbon as the best of the two leading 'sandwich' style biscuits. It's king.

I do prefer custard creams by a country mile.But milk choc digestive is king.Strangly I ate nearly a whole pack of custard creams yesterday.My turd this morning was looking more like mushed bourbons though.

Bourbons are a crime. Colouring them a deep rich brown but giving them no discernable chocolatey flavour? Get aht.

Funnily enough this is a subject of much debate in our household at present as my wife bought both this week when she went shopping and, finding that I was only eating the CCreams she asked why I wasn't paying equal attention to the Bourbons so I told her I don't like them.
"Neither do I" she retorted and so we began to wonder how on earth after 13 years together she had only just realised that each month she buys them and ends up grudgingly eating them herself!
Horrid little dry things they are.

Bourbons all the way.

Chocolately (kinda) and more importantly, a bigger biscuit.

Custard creams come close third behind coconut creams.

Bourbons. Though niether are very high on my lsit of favourite biscuits.

I don't know if I've just been eating cheap custard creams but the biscuit part isn't very nice.

Custard Creams - as they have more flavour. Bourbons with their brown colour and filling, promise so much in the way of chocolatey flavour, but deliver so little.

The king of all biscuits is probably the chocolate digestive though.

Obviously Bourbons. The Great Bourbon Crisis of 2016 is something I won't forget in a hurry!

I read recently that they are the nation's favourite biscuit, though I prefer Dark Chocolate Digestives.

If forced to choose only between those two, bourbons.

If this had been chocolate Digestives vs. chocolate HobNobs, however...
