I have a problem with wine biscuits.
It’s possible that wine biscuits are responsible for me starting to drink tea; when adults drew the line at we kids dunking yet another biscuit in their tea, we asked for our own.
The rest is history.
These days I don’t eat them often; not having biscuits in the house is the best way to avoid eating them.
But who could resist a three-for-$5 wine-biscuit bargain?
Obviously, I’ve eaten far too many.
There is an upside, however. For a long time, the issue of which of Griffins’ three wine-biscuit varieties is the best has been a source of contention.
Now, at least, after extensive sampling of them all, we have agreed that the best is not Round Wines (too dry), not Super Wines (too sweet) but Vanilla Wines, like the one disappearing into my grandmother’s Belle Fiore cup in the picture above.
Just as I said.
