Custard Creams?!?!

That's just SO WRONG on SO MANY LEVELS.

I will stand up and fight and die if necessary in defence of Cadbury's chocolate fingers!

Freeeeeeeeedom!

You've just given away the secret recipe for Garibaldi biscuits! I wouldn't want to be in your shoes when they find you. Or your underwear.

Okay, what, to you people, is a cookie? I knew that those things you call biscuits, are what we generally call cookies. But now I see that there's one called 'cookie' -- what's that?

Agghhhh! But what made them call it a cookie? They were referencing something specific. What's a cookie?

You are a horrible man.

And I'm pretty sure you wouldn't eat what Americans call biscuits with the same delight as you eat, um, cookies.

You are a horrible man.I get that a lot.


And I'm pretty sure you wouldn't eat what Americans call biscuits with the same delight as you eat, um, cookies.No, I mean, if it's an American Cookie maybe they call it a cookie over here too.
Unless there is a subtle difference that I'm missing.

I'm sure I've seen this whole biscuit/cookie issue here before. I think for the sake of ease, all you Colonial types should start talking like what we do. Innit.

I like chocolate chip cookies. Don't get me wrong, plain cookies are OK, ideal for dunking in tea, but the chocolate chips make me feel I'm doing something dangerous.

Aahhhh! You slipped the secret. You guys think that American cookies are chocolate chip cookies. I see. It's all coming clear.

ETA - You have 'cream biscuits' and 'ginger biscuits' and 'digestive biscuits'. We have 'chocolate chip cookies' and 'oatmeal raisin cookies' and Oreos.

A type of biscuit.

It's... well, it's kind of... sort of...

Just google image 'Digestive' you'll find it.

It's a type of biscuit posh people use for disturbing purposes when they're at boarding school.

Digestive Biscuits.

See? I'm not evil.



It's a type of biscuit posh people use for disturbing purposes when they're at boarding school.I don't think that's exclusive to digestives. Not that I'd know.

Nor, indeed, would anyone know. Y'know, since it's not the 50's anymore.

Another good reason why the Colonies should never have quit the British Empire: milk chocolate Hob Nobs.

I can thrash a packet of those at a time. They're really, really good for my writing.

I bet they're really good. They look like they aren't over-sweet, which is my chief complaint with most American cookies. I think I'd like those.

And don't disavow your evil so readily, sir. It could serve you well one day.

ETA - I was talking about the digestives, not the chocolate gooped ones.
