Jaffa Cakes

26 posts in this topic

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

I saw a new type of Jaffa Cakes in the supermarket the other day that were like ordinary Jaffa Cakes, but with a biscuit on the bottom and didn't have the cake-like part at all. I can't remember what they called it, but it looked like the closest thing to a Jaffa Biscuit you can get.

( I think this thread should get a prize for the most bizarre and irelevant topic every posted  ;D )

Ok, y'all...usually when I post on a subject, the subject is totally dropped...so here goes:

The difinitive answer to whether a Jaffe Cake is cake of bisquit (which may not apply in the UK) is: bisquits are not sweet!

So there!   :su

Interesting hypothesis... so what does that make the Jaffa cake biscuit??  ??? Surely you all don't think the jaffa-cake biscuit is a cake as well??!!!  :s01
