Biscuit World Cup

Custard cream biscuit.jpgHere are the entries for the inaugural Biscuit World Cup, sponsored by

Wombat Buymybooksyouwazzocks Inc.
“Probably the best books by Wombat in the world.”

Coming soon – the draw for the first round, made by Twitter. My money’s on the Custard Creams. You can never write them off. Solid in the dunk, with a touch of flair in the middle.

Matches will be decided by a public vote. You can also leave a comment explaining why your chosen biscuit should win that particular match. Drawn games will be awarded to the biscuit which, in the opinion of the referee, has received the more convincing comments.

PRIZE DRAW: everyone who leavesleaving a comment will be entered into a Prize Draw after the tournament to win three packets of the World Champion biscuit along with a range* of teas in which to dunk them. *might not be a terribly huge range; it depends what I’ve got in the top cupboard.

The Biscuits, as nominated by you, denizens of Twitter:

Custard creams, Bourbons, Jammie Dodgers, Ginger nuts, Nice, Shortbread, Chocchip Cookies, Garibaldi, Malted Milk, Digestives (choc and plain), Rich Tea, Fig Rolls, Leibniz, Lemon Puffs, Hobnobs (choc and plain), Iced Gems, Them thin Belgian almond things, Happy Faces, Perkins, Caramel Wafers, Lotus, brandy snaps, biscotti, Danish butter biscuits, Snickerdoodles,  Fat Rascals, Lincolns, Speculoos, rusks, Viennese Whirls, Fruit Shorties, Kletsckoppen (Lace Biscuits).

  1. There is stiff competition here from some old favourites. I think we can rule Rich Tea and Lemon Puffs – outsiders at best. The big money is on Bourbon, Custard Cream and Digestive, although Fig Rolls always bring something different to the table. Having said that, Hobnobs cannot be discounted with their unequalled capillary action and tea retention properties.


  2. Garibaldi is the best of this biscuit barrel battle


  3. If Malted Milk doesn't win, I will lose all faith in democracy…


  4. Where is the Scotch Abernethy? 😦



  5. Bourbons for the Cup! Incidentally, if c*****d c****s win, I don't want to be entered in the prize draw to win some on the grounds that I'd rather eat my own feet than a c*****d c***m 😉



  6. It's got to be chocolate digestives. Got to be. The dunk time is critical – too long and all the chocolate falls off into the tea. Mind you, chocolate-flavoured tea is a delicacy – got any in your top cupboard, Mr Wombat?


  7. VERY tough call. Walker's shortbread is near-impossible to beat, but Danish butter cookies and custard creams put up a good fight!


  8. To be absolutely fair of course I haven't tasted about half of the contenders… and the others, mostly tasted in Australia…


  9. Don't know where this landed, went to different page after sign in. Bleh!

    My vote fie final four? Biscotti…. Nuff said 🙂
