    Chocolate Hobnob. They can handle a good dunk without disintegrating into your brew.

    My favourite biscuit has to be ginger snap, Once upon a time I was able to eat without dunking
  • Adrian_ScopeAdrian_Scope Testing Team, Community Team Posts: 7,746 Scope community team
    I'm afraid @Richard_Scope has given the only correct answer. It has to be a chocolate Hobnob, but I'll also accept a Bourbon (of the biscuit variety) if you have one, as they're generally milk-free which buys you quite a bit of goodwill in my house.

    Hi @Chloe_Scope
                                   Double chocolate cookie or a bourbon. Great question! 
  • April2018momApril2018mom Member - under moderation Posts: 2,882 Member - under moderation
    I love homemade biscuits.

    As a young child I used to have a biscuit or two with a cup of water for a very light snack mid morning before lunch. Now I tend to have a biscuit at night with a warm drink like a cup of cocoa, hot chocolate in the winter or a cold drink like iced tea in the summer. Or a cup of mulled wine at Christmas. I have also had biscuits and lemonade in the past. 

    I love dipping my biscuit into a bowl of hot soup which is fresh out of the microwave as well. Biscuits also go well with wine. Good question! You should try having coffee and biscuits or biscuits with a lovely drink of hot tea in addition. Biscuits pair well with anything really however I have found. Even it can be eaten with some ale, whisky or beer if you so desire. We are a biscuit loving nation. What is your favorite biscuit? Biscuits really are the ultimate versatile snack of all time.

    Bourbons and custard creams!  Ginger Snaps are good for dunking.  Clubs or gold  chocolate biscuits,   
  • Chloe_ScopeChloe_Scope Scope Posts: 10,672 Disability Gamechanger

    I don't like hot drinks...and I'm not sure dunking biscuits in water would work!

    But I do like a chunky choc chip cookie...if just for the alliteration!  The Galaxy ones are particularly nice...and currently only a pound a pack in Tesco! ;) 

    Though tbh I'll eat most types of biscuits, just with the exception of any chocolate covered ones, can't be dealing with messy foods and sticky fingers!!
  • Chloe_ScopeChloe_Scope Scope Posts: 10,672 Disability Gamechanger
    They sound amazing @OverlyAnxious

    Although, I am partial for a dark chocolate digestive!

    A nice cup of tea and a jaffa cake is my favourite, although I am really partial to Tunnock's Tea Cakes and caramel wafers too.  Rich Tea I enjoy as well if I'm in the mood for dooking my biscuit, although I hate the mess they make in the bottom of the mug, lol!  :smiley:

    Lol!  I remember in a job I was in at one time, we had a debate on jaffa cakes.  I would say they are a biscuit as surely too wee for a cake?!  I love the lime ones and strawberry ones you can get, lovely!  :smiley:

    Oh no @Ails. Size doesn't matter. Biscuits crunch, cakes squish. It's a very simple science!

    Biscuits can be dunk if they have chocolate on, with a chocolate hobnob being superior! 

    I think biscuits with raisins in can go in the bin...

    Currently our biscuit stock is very low, just down to plain digestive left!

  • mikehughescqmikehughescq Member Posts: 4,999 Disability Gamechanger
    I need gluten and dairy free. The choices are not as limited as you’d think. I can have chocolate hob nobs, Jaffa cakes, custard creams, chocolate bourbon, jammy dodgers, Malted milk etc. and Sainsbury’s do dark chocolate and stem ginger cookies which I would eat even if I didn’t have a stomach/bowel issue. Indeed being able to eat cookies and tea (lactose free milk obvs) without bloating etc. us much under-rated. However, mention of the word Garibaldi will send me on a search. Lots of recipes to make your own but life is too short.
  • AilsAils Community champion Posts: 2,268 Disability Gamechanger
    I love nibbling at Jaffa Cakes and enjoy dooking a plain biscuit in my tea.  I enjoy Garibaldis as I love raisins, sorry @Chloe_Scope!   <3:p

    My wife is American and makes the greatest chocolate chip cookies.
    In America a biscuit is rather like our scones! They normally eat these at breakfast and cover them in gravy!
    Once while over there I tried them. Never again. The gravy is not like what you are probably thinking.
  • M_AnthonyM_Anthony Community champion, Scope Volunteer Posts: 309 Pioneering
    Great Thread! I really like cookies they are great dipping in tea, but out all of them I highly recommend M&S ones, they work the best. I love Digestives as well and bourbons to.
