    What do you like?

    What do you hate?

    Do you dunk?

    Has anyone tried Party Rings in the last few years? Gone really downhill (like Happy Faces).

    I'm eating Fig Rolls, they are well good, innit. But you can't dunk them in anything, I've tried.

    As a kid I would dunk Rich Tea in Squash. Weirdo.

    Party rings no longer have any fake flavouring and colouring so are boring now. Bit like what they've done to smarties.

    I used to adore lemon puffs but even they taste less lemony.

    Digestives are boring.

    Ben says... he likes chocolate biscuits. Choc oreos are his fave and wholewheat dark choc digestives (nerd).

    We both like Jaffa Cakes even tho technically and legally they are cakes and not biscuits :mellow:

    You are to blame for Ben now googling mcvities digestives to prove they used to be called homewheats before they were called digetives. The first choc was made in 1935 but the first one was made in 1892 with a higher content of baking soda. They were called homewheat as they were the only brand then to be using british wheat from home and not abroad HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Spare me the nerdiness.

    I can't talk. I am similar. You know feast ice creams? Remember when they were called Big Feast? Not many people believe me but the were and.... on tv you remember Fingermouse? It used to be called Fingerbobs and nobody remembers that either. I is an old bird!!

    oooh I just remembered that I like to bite both ends off a stick of kitkat and use it as a straw in hot choc. If you've never done this - try it before grimacing as the hot liquid makes it all gooey and yum!

    I remember when Marathon became Snickers.
    Ok Big Feast I remember to they changed the name as they are no longer BIG niether for that matter are creme eggs which is disgraceful!!! Oh & wagon wheels have shrunk!!! Maybe all the E numbers & artificial colours made them huge????

    LOVE party rings, agree they are not the same but love them, I also love jammy dodgers. All the biscuits that you find at a kiddies party are my faves!!!

    I love dunking cookies & digestives in Tea mmm yummy!!! Off to make a cuppa now.... xxx

    Oh yes & I love yorkshire puddings somthered in vinegar lovely!!! xxx

    Guys please STOP! I have so many replies to you all, aaargh!
    A Highland toffee did in fact rob me of one of my teeth which fell into my neighbours shagpile, took bloody ages to find it!
    I remember when penny sweets were ha'penny sweets, garibaldi are fly biscuits, Feast were Big in name and size, Creme Eggs (one of my favourites have shrunk) as have Wagon Wheels (gag) and wham bars, I found it hilarious when they changed Marathon to Snickers, what a silly name, and when Opal Fruits were...Opal fruits, and why did Fingerbobs become fingermouse?????
    Must admit dont really like party rings, though I admit they don't taste as good now, or jaffa cakes I much prefer a chocolate hobnob, proper squishy fruit and oatmeal cookies from Sainsburys and sometimes a custard cream.
    Hobnobs are best for dunking though!
    Does anyone remember Caramac?? That used to be my favourite choc bar but that has changed beyond recognition now!
    Nothing tastes right anymore!

    Ladies, ladies. I must introduce you to possibly THE best ice-cream invention ever! Get thyselves to your nearest Tesco, look in the frozen section and locate in a red box with yellowy writing that you will recognise, the very amazingly-gorgeous-essential-orgasmic-worthsnoggingtheworldsugliestpersonfor goodie otherwise known as CARAMAC ICE-CEAM BARS. 4 for £1 and you'll never need another ice-cream again :)
