    I just read that Lemon & Lime Jaffa Cakes are available. Is this true?

    On the other hand... A cake base filled with haggis and topped with orange marmalade and dark chocolate, then covered in a batter and deep fried...

    Ļ Depending if I have Scotch or Irish in the house
    I do like the detail about dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is more chocolate-y than milk chocolate, and so the thinnest veneer of chocolate on your biscuit is all that's needed to make it taste chocolate.

    Yes it is and they are both delicious


    P.S. @Frank. When I saw that you had quoted Siobhan I thought you were going to pick up on 'Scotch'.

    although kit kats make excellent "tea straws" and they're chocolate... but biscuits not the less - there's something for you to google on a Monday morning!
    Never did that with Penguins as a kid, but I was introduced to the "Tim-Tam Slam" when in Aussieland.

    Cake.

    Otherwise it'd be called a Jaffa Biscuit.

    Biscuit?
    Cookie, the word is cookie.
    Unless you mean scone.
    Or cake.
    Or unleavened cake either sweet or savoury.
    Following this topic compounds my confusion even more; UK = English language supposedly, yet biscuit can mean too many things.
    This is serious business guys/gals, wars were started over less.
    So please, let's arrest T.J., thereby relieving the problem, and use more descriptive words.

    Amongst English speaking people outside of the North American continent, cookie is a subset of the baked goods known as biscuits (although according to Wikipedia, cookie describes a plain bun in Scotland).

    The rich did not look at this infamous food.
    This is very true:

    Prior to this time, lobster was considered a mark of poverty or as a food for indentured servants or lower members of society in Maine, Massachusetts, and the Canadian Maritimes. It has been suggested servants specified in employment agreements that they would not eat lobster more than twice per week, however there is no evidence for this.[30][31] Lobster was also commonly served in prisons, much to the displeasure of inmates.
