Ginger Nuts, Hob Nobs, Caramel Wafers – nothing beats a good biscuit.
But we all know what really makes the best baked delight – how well does it dunk in a cuppa?
In honour of National Biscuit Day (May 29), Wren Kitchens have put the nation’s favourite biccies to the test in a ‘highly scientific experiment,’ revealing just how long they can last until they melt, crumble or dissolve under pressure.
You may be thinking you’ve seen this sort of test before, but these guys have taken it one step further.
Not only testing the durability of the biscuits, the winning variety has then been challenged even further. They’ve compared different versions from different brands of that specific type, to discover the ultimate dunker.
Coming last place was the crumbly Hob Nob, which lasted a mere 15 seconds in a brew.
The classic digestive hung on for 48 seconds, while rich tea just missed the minute mark, clocking in at 58 seconds.
But when it came to the kings of the cookie jars, it was the Jammie Dodger in third place with 1:06 and buttery shortbread in second at 1:20.
So who was crowned the top of the biscuit heap?
The dark horse of the pack, the mighty bourbon, withstanding a whopping 2:39 dunking.
All biscuits may be good, but not all biscuits are created equally.
