    Save @racroesus from biscuit-starvation!!!!

    I don't think I've ever heard anything so sad!

    (Not since Michael Gove took a tumble outside No. 10.)


    How very terrible!

    How truly dreadful!! :eek:


    I bet her return was greeted with joy and the celebratory dunking of a digestive or two.

    I switched my allegiance to bourbons.

    It's in your best interests. Queen of Lydia doesn't want you to look like THIS!

    Why am I constantly expected to taste and comment on cream sponges, lemon meringues, caraway seed cakes, apple turnovers baked fresh?
    A few digestives and a glass of milk and I'm happy.

    I was given a bourbon tin at Christmas - a tin that looks just like a big bourbon! It matches my oreos tin :). Naturally (or possibly because I'm a bit OCD) I only want to fill it with bourbons. I filled it once; daughter #2 came home and ate the lot o_O and I've not been able to buy any since. Saw the news article yesterday, and suddenly twigged why that was!

    And I'm now craving ginger nuts... just because I can't get any!

    It is a terrible affliction. Almost as bad as cotton-wool balls.

    Never tried eating cotton-wool :eek:... although as a small(ish) child I could never resist licking bath cubes - they look so much like giant sherbet. I knew, every time, that I would regret it,but it never stopped me.

    I was unaware of this crisis!

    So a surplus of exclamation marks, a shortage of biscuits and migrants trapped in Greece [oh the trauma!]

    Hell in a handcart

    Bring the migrants over here to make more biscuits!!!!

    Tough. You have no chance after mocking my situation.

    A slice of sponge, cake or whatever doesn't satisfy a craving for cold milk and digestives or hob-nobs or custard creams or...

    When I first heard of the biscuit shortage, I went crackers.
