No shortage of biscuits at the Boundary Run today. CUHH obviously cornered the market in custard creams as soon as they heard about the crisis.

GM, biscuits go soft if you keep them whereas cake goes hard. JC's go hard QED *

Jaffa Cake is a cake. HMRC tried to get them classified as biscuits for VAT purposes, and lost.

Got something to say?
