    Everyone gets Hobnobs as an obligation to teatime guests. You are also allowed up to 6 other biscuit varieties. Pink wafers are banned on humanitarian grounds. Jaffa Cakes are also not allowed in your tin.

    I am going with...

    1. Bourbon creams.
    2. Plain chocolate digestives.
    3. Rich tea.
    4. Fig rolls.
    5. Lemon puffs.
    6. Classic shortcakes.

    Balls.

    Oggy oggy oggy
    tits in a trolley
    balls in a biscuit tin
    laying on the grass
    with your finger up your arse
    and your balls go ting-a-ling-a-ling

    I've a quite few like cupid_stunt 's - also wartime style klim or something - and masses of jars with sorted stuff.

    As for edibles as per OP.
    I have ginger nuts all the time (apart from flood deprivation periods),
    and a selection from the following list at various times -
    bourbon / custard creams,
    digestives (sometimes chocci ones),
    shortbread fingers,

    I also have squares of flapjack which I treat as biscuits ie eat with coffee
    and just to annoy people - Jaffa cakes also feature frequently !

    Food deprivation periods? Like the week before payday?

    We don't have a biscuit tin as we hardly ever have biscuits. I don't think I've ever bought hobnobs as they look very boring.

    Mint Clubs , Chocolate Rich Tea and a quality Shortbread Petticoat Tail would suffice. All highly dunkable .

    Eta... and partial to a Cadburys Chocolate Finger .Good memories of holding them next to ye olde electric bar fire to get the complete experience.

    Nope, f-L-ood deprivation - I am referring to the period when stocks of the biscuits made in Carlisle ran out after the 2015 floods ...

    Have biscuit tins gone out of fashion?

    We always had a huge tin to put on the centre of the table whenever the kettle went on. I thought everybody had one :confused:

    Going to be absolutely essential in my house.

    I don't have a biscuit tin either. I rarely eat biscuits but mr snake gets through a crazy amount of chocolate biscuits, digestives, bourbons, custard creams and whatever else I buy at Lidl. I eat M&S biscuits when we are gifted them at xmas :D

    I've got a pack of biscuits in the cupboard in the original boxes. I thought normal people stored them this way, and once opened troffed the lot. :confused:

    Biscuits are like bottles of wine - once opened they go off within a couple of hours so need consuming.

    Is this an actual biscuit tin or a notional biscuit tin? Are we doing an inventory or are we in effect playing fantasy biscuit tin?

    If the former, there's nothing in the biscuit tin, but we do have some packets of shortbread visitors brought over the New Year period in the cupboard.

    If the latter, a selection of: Kit Kat, Chocolate Rocky, Club (do they still make the plain chocolate one?), and Penguins.

    The subject of much debate in our office right now. Someone claims this to be their favourite ever biscuit.

    66299F88-1D7C-4C46-89EF-8AFA60F08A52.jpeg 2 dozen tea-lights for power cuts in our tin. Don’t really have biscuits in the house - closest thing to sweet treats is this Chocolate Orange disguised as a Christmas Pudding

    We have a sweet drawer with all sorts, halwa, Lidl tropical fruit sweets, chocolate. It did have bourbons, custard creams, nice biscuits and ginger nuts over Christmas. I like penguins, orange and mint clubs, kit kats.... most of them really. I like M&S dark chocolate gingers as a treat, they remind me of my dad and of being a kid.

    Why the pink wafer hate? As long as they're proper Pink Panther brand they're a fine biscuit.

    I've got tea bags in mine.
    Not had biscuits in months...nay....years.
    But the last ones I had were chocolate caramel digestives.

    There's nothing medically wrong with having ginger nuts :mad:

    Unless you're not ginger, obvs
