The dark chocolate Hobnob is the king of biscuits.

I'm not sure that I can state definitively what the queen of crisps is.

Worcester sauce flavour crisps or spicy tomato wheat crunchies.

Happy to help.

Well you've helped me rule those two out at least.

Marmite crisps are superior to Worcester sauce.

Mean. :cry:

I haven't tried marmite crisps, but I think I ought to. I did have some Walkers tomato ketchup ones recently and they were lush.

I'd forgotten all about wheat crunchies until now!

AND they've got wheat in them, which is roughage which is a healthy thing. I'm sure that, as a medical professional yourself, you can confirm that they are full of nutritional goodness.

NikNaks are great but they can give you a NikNak hangover.

I could quite happily live the rest of my life without eating another biscuit. They never have a proper, real flavour to them and they're really unsatisfying, even if you eat a whole packet at once ( which , of course, I never have)

Crisps and all sorts of savoury snacks are my absolute food downfall. More than chocolate, more than anything. I practically inhale them.


Snap!

Oh, and I forgot -

I guess it is an age thing. When I was considerably younger, instant gratification just seemed more important (cliché, I know). As in: stop thinking, and open a big bag of paprika crisps. Enjoy.

Nowadays, a cuppa and some biscuits, and some contemplation or good conversation just seem much more satisfying.
The invisible and the non-existing very much look alike.

So when you were young, you got your kicks from crisps, and now you're older and more mature you turn to biscuits?
