poppin’ panda heads

There’s something quite disturbing about Meiji “Hello Panda” biscuits. They’re happy little panda heads that you bite into and goo comes out.

Disturbing, true; tasty, definitely.


I’m glad we went to Denninger’s for lunch today. I discovered that they sell my favourite biscuit ever, that being McVitie’s Café Noir. Better known to the rest of Europe as Verkade Café Noir from the Netherlands, these brittle sugar/coffee glazed biscuits are the best. When I was a nipper I could scoff half a pack in a sitting, and I haven’t lost the knack. They’re every bit as good as I remember them.

Shame they’re owned by evil big tobacco …
