2016 DoP UK biscuits very similar to RCIR biscuits now

Here they are. Hadn't had a go at a UK ration as recent as this one and I was struck by how close the chocolate biscuits look and taste to the RCIR ones

nice pics, just curious though----did they have the overwhelming taste that gundog mentioned in his RCIR reviews or did they taste like they had artificial sweetener?

You know what.... They were just a bit plain. No particular strong flavour just a biscuity taste and a light taste the cocoa powder

What is it with you English chaps and your biscuits? Do you really dip them in tea, and what not? I can eat'em, but prefer American crackers with cheese, PB and what not. :roll:
After the Chicken and the Egg, came the "Omelet"!

Well I'm not English, so I can't answer that. I just ate them without doing anything else.
