Rich Tea biscuits are pathetic. I think the world knows that. So I was somewhat surprised to see a packet in our cupboard, especially as we go through quite a varieties of biscuits. We are better than that I told my wife. Alas these weren’t for us, rather our 8 month old to chew on and to start weaning. A poor choice to start him off on his life’s biscuit journey. I hope he realises that this is the bottom of the barrel and biscuits can only get better.
So I decided, in the spirit of this blog, to give them a go inside a cupcake. Knowing that they are pretty tasteless outside of any other food stuff, I put a few layers in to give them a chance.
And, as you probably would have guessed, when these came out of the oven, they were not to exceed, or even rise above, expectations. The rich teas couldn’t hold their own and any taste evaporated. Even a bit of icing when some crumbled Rich Teas failed to add any value.
Well, like the old philosophy, it is better to try and fail, than to fail by not trying. I gave them a chance, but I won’t be trying these again.
