Welcome back to day TWO of the (not really) World Biscuit Dunking Championship.
It’s been a miserable wet day at Chez ThreeTimeDaddy. Conditions are atrocious but everyone should be able to stay dry enough to take part.
As a slight recap on the events so far, I recently read an article in the Telegraph about the nation’s favourite biscuit for dunking and thought I could do better.
With kids and hot chocolate.
The supposed nation’s favourite Rich Tea literally fell at the first hurdle, crumbling into a mug of hot chocolate while the Chocolate Digestive soldiered on into the mouth of a 7 year old.
Today we have two gargantuan’s of the biscuit world – the double power of custard cream against the solid malted milk.
Let’s look at the stats:
Big Bro N – expert in getting more Biscuit on his face than in his mouth, he has a brutal no nonsense dunking method.
Little Roo – a relative newcomer to the world of biscuits, but sports one of the most delicate dunking techniques seen for years.
Sainsbury’s own Hot Chocolate, with extra milk and left to cool slightly. It’s an unconventional dunking surface, but a truly great biscuit should be able to adapt to all conditions.
Jane Foster specials (expresso/kid size), because all drinks seem to taste nicer in them.
So, let’s do this!
Another shock in the first round. My personal Pre-Championship favourite Malted Milk gave an embarrassing limp performance, turning to a slushy mess before even getting started.
The seemingly impenetrable Custard Cream powers into the next round. Who else will join them?
Next match up: Shortcake vs Nice
