Biscuit World Cup, Group 2

Sponsored by Wombat Books – “Wombat books kill 99% of household germs.”

The vanilla thriller last night between Fat Rascals and Almond Thins ended with Thins progressing to the next round with a deciding vote in the last minute. The best supported match was between Iced Gems and Biscotti, with thousands of fans dancing in the streets of Biscotti after a close win, again by one point In the other games, Lemon Puffs and Tim Tams progressed easily against weakly supported opponents.

Now, don’t tell anyone, but in a week I will be going dark for a black ops mission. In order to hold the Final before I leave, we need therefore to increase the number of matches played daily. Accordingly, you have six matches to decide today.

Remember, vote for your favourite biscuit in each of the games in the poll boxes on the right. Add a comment to this post to explain why your choice should win. (if you need further information on any biscuit, harness the power of Google). In the event of a drawn match, the comments that impress Referee Wombat the most will win for that biscuit. All commenters will be entered into the AMAZE PRIZE DRAW (see below). Today’s games:

  1. Unfair match between Rich Tea and Vienese Whirls. Rich Tea, a British home team favourite essential for tea drinking. Vienese is a cake, made by bakers not biscuit cewks. Foul. Should be declared disqualified.

    Poncy whirly crap? Sounds like bias from the official there. And at least they've got ambition, unlike the dull as ditchwater rich tea. Looks like Lotus are well beaten already – a shame, they're a personal favourite, but at least the caramel wafers are holding their own against the inferior jammie dodger. Could be close, but I reckon the complexities of the wafer will bring it through…

  8. Don't get the Jammie Dodgers obsession. They taste like cardboard with a bit of plastic in the middle. Happy Faces are much nicer, buttery, crumbley consistency with softer jam and the addition of yummy creamy bit too mmmmmmm 🙂

  9. Jammie Dodgers are delicious, all right, but nothing beats the melty caramelly goodness of a stroopwafel that has been sat on top of your tea mug for just long enough to melt the caramel. People voting for Jammie Dodgers probably never realized you had to warm the caramel wafers!

  10. BTW in American English: fig roll = Fig Newton, Speculoos = Windmill cookies, caramel wafer = Stroopwafel…

  11. Wait… what? Dutch Caramel Wafers? Surely we should be supporting the good old Scottish Tunnock's Caramel Wafer?
