Yesterday, as always, we were served tea and biscuits at the library as we played with our yarn. The biscuits were new to me. Judging from the way they looked, I assumed they contained oatmeal. I tasted one. It was really good--a bit crumbly, not very sweet, and quite tasty. I asked Gerard what kind of biscuit it was and he replied that they were Hobnobs. After we left the library, Bill and I went on to the shop as we'd planned--we needed eggs and bananas. While picking up those things, we came across some packets of Hobnobs. They were even on sale! A couple of packets came home with us. 😋
The week before, Gerard was away and there was a sub. She also introduced me to a new-to-me biscuit. Again it was plain, not very sweet, yet quite good. Until I tasted one, I was not sure whether it was a biscuit or a cracker, sweet or savoury. It was a biscuit. I saw the packet and discovered that they were Marie biscuits. I later found out that this is pronounced like 'marry.' When in the shop a few days later, I saw them on the shelf--they'd been there all along and I just hadn't noticed. I picked up a package.
