A question that has caused restless nights for philosphers over the past century: Is the Jaffa cake a biscuit or a cake?  ;D

Having purchased a packet of 3 Jaffas (snack pack) today and studied the wrapper, I have made a few observations...

The wrapper has highlighted on it: 3 cakes :s6

However, the makers, McVitie’s, is a registered trademark of 'United Biscuits (UK) LTD'. What is a biscuit firm making ‘cakes’ for you might ask yourself…

:sr

So I have come to the conclusion that a jaffa-cake is a biscuit at heart, trapped in a cake’s body.:s03
