All-purpose biscuit thread. To dunk or not to dunk, biscuit ethics, favourite biscuits for special occasions, etc.

Nice biscuits with milk. Shortbread with milk. Garibaldi with milk. Rich Tea with milk. Thin Arrowroots with milk. Root Ginger cookies with milk. Pink wafers with milk. Bourbons with milk. Banana and Toffee Jammie Dodgers with milk. Boasters with milk. Everything with milk except Digestives (gotta be Hovis) with cheese. Are Brandy Snaps biscuits or just the container component of Canolis? Do Penguin's count? When my aunt comes from Australia she brings Tim Tams, are Tim Tams biscuits or cakes or just makeshift straws for me to do the Tim Tam slam. Everyone should do the Tim Tam slam. It's a daring synthesis of milk drinking and cake/biscuit consumption. Do biscuits even matter (except Digestives) without milk? So many questions, too many biscuits, not enough milk.
Dunk always. The best are morning coffee and rich tea but I haven't seen morning coffee in a while.
All biscuits with butter cream in between 2 of them are gross.
Digestive biscuits are for cheese. Not for dunking.
Bourbon creams would be nice without the butter cream.
Jaffa cakes are cakes not biscuits.
I don't agree about the Bourbon creams but.....

This is absolutely right. It isn't even subjective. Everyone that I pulled out Digestives in front of looked at me like I'd just landed in a spaceship. All that tasted the wonderful combination were converted. *** chocolate digestives, *** dunking. I eat soup with crackers too, that is another one worth trying.

Agreed. How can sponge be considered a biscuit? It's cake!
I respect your highly informed and tasteful opinions on biscuits. So what do you think about Penguins? I'm undecided whether they are biscuits or chocolate bars? If anyone else has any input I'd like to hear it.
Choco Liebniz. Does anyone wonder if they are biscuits or chocolates. It says on the box "More chocolate than biscuit" but shape wise and conceptually they are very biscuit like.
I dunk in coffee, never in tea.
I only dunk dry biscuits.
I consider Jaffa cakes to be biscuits. And absolutely love them never dunk them. My favourite Jaffa's are the quality ones in resealable packets to keep them fresh. And I love the selection of flavours; orange, lemon, apricot, peach, raspberry, blackberry.

E Wedel? They do the raspberry in resealable which have dark chocolate, which I prefer to milk. I cannot deny your taste in baked goods but sponge cakes aren't biscuits, regardless of shape!
I do dunk the drier sorts of biscuits, such as Digestive or Rich Tea. I always feel bewildered by finding what i consider a biscuit in a cracker selection box. The wrapper makes me feel like a Penguin is more a chocolate bar personally. Bourbons, Custard Creams, Ginger biscuits and Jaffa cakes make me feel happy.
Adding academic weight to the discussion here. On an existential level.. what does that biscuit preference reveal about your inner personality?
However, no chocolate Bourbon?
Penguins are chocolate bars, definitely not a biscuit.
