Gotta love Oreos.

Please name one; i.e. your favorite, not all of the ones you shove in your pie hole. ;)

Huh ??? That's biscuit ??? :confused:

I guess there's some misunderstanding going on here :scratch: Or it can be that biscuit means something else in the US :shrug:

Orange Milano:

Brussels:

Those two were my favourites, but others were good too.


Also Lu Pim's, the orange ones:

Yep, biscuits in US are not the same as biscuits in UK (or India, I guess ;)).

Yeah, that's what I was thinking :shrug:

It seems that most of the things in US are totally different from the rest of the world :shrug:

Although I think I already knew it, but I am still a little bit surprised :p :lol:

Seriously, is this really news that biscuits and cookies mean different things in different parts of the world? :rolleyes:

Favorite cookies are homemade, but of store-bought I love the most:

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2504/4195755963_d64974520a_o.jpg This is from Trader Joe's, but I like a Belgian brand that I can't find online. Their waffle cookies look exactly like this.

Oh, I found the brand: https://encrypted-tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRSkJ8yRA3ijVxMOvGgbukYRm9IbL3pN L_V0eADtfXn5wFBiskB3Q

The other store-bought cookies I like are Walker's shortbread and https://encrypted-tbn3.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQAc1RLfr_FZnbQRG4SFlDXuBBHxw4OI 3_SdCU_cBiib4WfBN2mSg.

I haven't had any of these cookies in a while. So sad.

Lay's potato chips are crap. Tim's Cascade Chips rule, yes, they do.

Those are good indeed. :)

Never been a big potato chips eater, but I did like the popchips.

Walker's shortbread is great

American travel writer Bill Bryson described the chocolate digestive as "a British masterpiece"
