Description

The bottom layer of the digestive was uniquely more satisfying than I had expected. There was a certain sweetness which I enjoyed (maybe because I enjoy sweet tastes). Meant to be dunked, too – or at least two thirds of Britons think so. A cuppa and a tea-soaked biscuit is so fundamental to working life in hospitals – providing warmth, comfort and energy in one – that in December the British Medical Journal published a tongue-in-cheek study on the best biscuit and tea combination. Ah Lidl, where else could you buy Manuka Honey and a garden rake under one roof? It is by far the roguest supermarket in the land. There is no logical lay out: you'll find the pesto next to the hairdryers and duvet covers next to Golden and Delicious apples. Fortified wheat flour (wheat flour, calcium, carbonate, iron, niacin, thiamin), 32% butter (milk), sugar, salt.

Oh dear Morrisons what went wrong here? Your 59p milk chocolate digestives did not go down well at all. Sainsbury's own milk chocolate digestives may look good from the outside, but the same story doesn't follow on the inside unfortunately (Image: Grimsby Live)So I feel, quite strongly, that I, as a predator of digestive biscuits, was a victim of digestivian mimicry where a slightly less tasty species takes the general pattern and colouration of a more tasty species (of biscuit). In fact, when the recipe was invented by two Scottish doctors in 1839 (McVitie’s manufactured its own secret recipe, created by Sir Alexander Grant, in 1892), the supposed “digestive” benefit came from the dose of bicarbonate of soda which lightens the texture, and, they postulated, might help with acid reflux. These days, commercial forms of baking powder (bicarb mixed with acid) are used, which helps the biscuit rise a bit, but whether there was ever any real digestive benefit is debatable. Sadly, Morrisons came last on our list to find the best milk chocolate biscuit (Image: Grimsby Live) Maybe you like to dunk them in your tea just so they get that soft texture which is irresistibly s-crumb-tious. A staple in the biscuit barrel and often the first to go, the milk chocolate digestive has always been one of the nation’s favourite biscuits.

Some vegans choose to avoid palm oil that hasn’t been certified as sustainable because its production destroys the habitats of animals. Cross contamination Digestives are the sensible jersey of the biscuit world, comforting without being fancy. There are recipes for homemade versions on the internet but this seems an odd idea, much like those dough presses designed so you can spend hours sweating in the kitchen to make custard creams that look just like ones you buy, but at five times the cost. The thing that really got me, however, was the ‘dunkability’. The structural integrity of the biscuit did not hold up to Tesco’s promise and half of the biscuit ended up at the bottom of my cup of tea - which I’d been looking forward to all day, by the way.

This reminded me of Batesian and Mullerian mimicry that I learned about at school and more so at university.
