Just been reading the BBC News site about Proctor & Gamble losing their court case regarding the classification of Pringles. They argued that Pringles are not a potato snack, but more like a cake or a biscuit, because they are manufactured from dough.
Pringles…a cake or a biscuit? hahaha someone was trying to pull a fast one there. Nice try, but they ARE potato based snacks = crisps. End of story.
Which brings me onto the humble Jaffa Cake.
For years this debate has rumbled on, men have argued, blood has been shed and lives lost over the humble Jaffa Cakes’ status.
Is it a biscuit? Or is the clue in the name – is it cake? Cake, biscuit? Biscuit, cake? Nobody knows.
They are packed like biscuits; sold with biscuits; can be dunked in tea like biscuits; can be devoured in 3 separate stages (lick/pick the chocolate off, eat the jelly, eat the sponge) like biscuits. Yet they are classed as cakes.
I don’t care what the suits say, I say biscuit. What say you?
