Inspired by Nigel Slater's recent programme about biscuits we decided to do our very own dunk test to see which biscuit performed best under stringent dunking conditions.
Competitor Biscuits: Bourbon, Chocolate finger, Shortie, Custard Cream (all from the Family Circle Selection Box)
Dunkers: Olly, Jegan, Brian, Shan, John
Dunking conditions: Hot tea, 2 second dunks
Ratings: Two scores out of 5 given by each dunker, one for firmness and one for taste satisfaction.
Our dunkers were: Olly, Jegan, Brian, Shan and John
Total Dunking Scores:
Bourbon - Firmness 15, Taste 17 - Total 32
Chocolate Finger - Firmness 20, Taste 20 - Total 40
Shortie - Firmness 15, Taste 15 - Total 30
Custard Cream - Firmness 16, Taste 19 - Total 35
1st - Chocolate Finger
2nd - Custard Cream
3rd - Bourbon
4th - Shortie
It appears the melting action of the hot tea upon the chocolate of the finger was definitely a winner!
