That's fine. I don't eat anything with sugar in and I'm also a vegan so most of them would be out of bounds. In fact all of them I think. I would have voted - I've eaten them all in the past. Fig Rolls being a big favourite.

Fig Rolls should have won. It's ourageous really. Group winners should have included wagon wheels and ginger nuts.

Bovine Juice is turning into João Havelange!
I demand the contest be declared null & void and re-run with a full array of biscuits and no cakes!

Yes a Jaffa Cake IS a cake. The reason being that when stale, a biscuit will go soft. A cake will go hard. Jaffa Cakes go hard when stale. It's a scientific fact.

Oh here we go...

Look, a Jaffa Cake is a biscuit and I don't care what the lawyers say.

And anyone who thinks eating a Fig Roll is a pleasant experience can go back to 1952 and listen to a valve radio and drink camp coffee.

Interesting fact (just like the other FACT I posted about Jaffa Cakes) - they don't actually contain orange - it's apricot disguised as orange!

Sense.

But shouldn't Mcvitie's dark chocolate digestive have featured?

Actually, I don't much care for fig rolls.

Absolutely, the dark chocolate digestive is vastly superior to it's milk chocolate equivalent.
And why no chocolate hobnobs or Fox's jam & cream rings.
Also, for a World tournament, there was a distinct UK bias; nothing from the Bhalsen or Pepperidge Farm ranges?

There were shortcakes and Tunnocks. You don't get more foreign than Scotland.

A slow Sunday was it? You are the John Motson of the baked goods confectionary world!

You haven't even bothered to include the quarters and semis. It's a bit too predictable with the early favourites winning - in a real biscuit world cup, chocolate digestives wouldn't get out of their group because the heat affected their performance, jammy dodgers (why did I first write "jammy doggers"?) would perform well but collapse in the quarter final, oreos would be laughed out of the arena in their first game and chocolate fingers would lose on penalties to Choco-Leibniz in the final. Garabaldis (replacing the disqualified jaffa cakes - clue is in the name) would take the third place spot from the TUC.

Any biscuit with raisins in it would be the equivalent of a Stoke City or a Hull.
