    Shrink flatiron

    So now the biscuits are at it:

    McVitie's has reduced the number of biscuits in Hobnobs Creams packs from 15 to 12 but kept the price at £1.22 - increasing the price per biscuit from 8.14p to 10.17p.

    Less to munch while admiring our collections and pondering the next addition ... what is your favourite munchies while pondering?

    Why ‘flatiron’ or a typo?

    Personally I like a fig roll, Tesco’s own brand far nice than others I’ve tried.

    I thought this was a new watch brand/model:

    'The all new Shrink Flatiron', with stainless steel bracelet and 100m water resistance.

    Wagon wheels indeed have not. I was a consultant for the manufacturer a couple of years ago & they are still using the same cutters / equipment as always. Seems that everyone forgets their hands were smaller lol

    Don't do it, the Flatiron is an iconic building.

    So. Like 'Mmmmm beer' but biscuit themed.

    That's fine, I'll play!

    Day to day coffee accompaniment would be the tried and tested custard cream.

    Special occasion biscuits have got to be dark chocolate Florentines. Simply devine.

    I used to think they’ve got smaller but truth is my mouth’s a lot bigger than it was when I was 9.
