The light, the dark and the plain

[A digestive dilemma]

You may find milk chocolate digestives
so crunchy and crumbly and such a treat,
but to me their taste simply gives
a sense of excess. They are just too sweet.

But by contrast, I shall always desire
the more subtle plain chocolate digestive,
its dark and bitter and velvet attire,
its demeanour so suave and suggestive.

Biscuit: McVitie's Digestives - Dark Chocolate
Taste test: 9 out of 10
Cost: £1.75 from Tesco in Brockenhurst


  1. Couldn't agree more. The dark chocolate digestive is the king of biscuits.

  2. Agree, always dark. And don;t get me started on dark chocolate oranges...

  3. Get you two! We'll try and review some more dark chocolate biscuits soon - just for you both.


Please tell us what you think about our poems and the biscuits
