Get the kettle on, we're ready to dunk

Forget the election: this is the vote that counts. After all, biscuits are wonderful, wonderful things.


The nation has voted (2,000 Brits to be exact) and the results are in.


According to a survey by the Blue Cross pet charity (in aid of its national Paws for Tea fundraising party), the perfect all-rounder biscuit is … *drum roll please* … the chocolate digestive.


That’s right, biscuit lovers. The humble chocolate-slathered treat beat off strong competition from the likes of Hobnobs, custard cream and shortbread to top the poll.


However, when it comes to biscuits, we’re not sure that there's a ‘bad one’ but this is just how the cookies have crumbled.


Behold the biscuit hall of fame. And remember guys, we live in a democracy.
