ALICE ASHCROFT: Our watery wonderland

Have your say

Shock, horror! McVitie’s has changed the recipe of its famous chocolate digestive biscuits.

But in a blind trial two-thirds of those trying the new recipe said they preferred the original. Crunchier apparently.

Now, I don’t know if the new biscuits are better or worse, but I’ve got a sure-fire way of finding out.

In your place of work, hold a meeting and serve tea and a mixture of biscuits including the new chocolate digestives.

Watch the plate carefully and if the chocolate digestives aren’t the first to be nabbed then you’ll know they are not as nice as they used to be.

Because the chocolate digestives are always the first to go. It’s the law.
