Oreo biscuits v Ginger Nuts.Which do you prefer?
« on: Jan 13, 2020, 10:48:22 PM »
I always prefer Oreos. Dark biscuits on top and on bottom. A white filling.

Ginger Nuts have a short shelf life.

Oreo biscuits are at home in north America.

Ginger Nuts are foreign abroad.

Whats your favorite biscuit? Why?

Of the two I'd choose Ginger nuts great for dunking  ;) but Shortbread fingers are my favourites.

Ginger nuts. I have a Douwe Egberts jar that is airtight and has held my ginger nuts, snugly, for some years now.

Out of the two ginger nuts. Although I should not eat biscuits I enjoy the occasional Chocolate Oliver. They last well in my small airtight tin. With a friend we tried vacuum storage but they exploded! ☹️

Oreos have invaded Bulgaria, and Ginger Nuts have not: which is a right $%^&$#
as I prefer the latter.

Stick to Papadoupolous Digestives; which while not being the real thing come a close second.

Of the two it would be Ginger Nuts for me although my preference for dunking are Aldi Oaties (their knockoff version of Hobnobs) especially the chocolate ones.

Ginger Nuts are part of English history. Oreos are a recent North American import. I hear it said Oreos are cheaper than Ginger Nuts but do well in North America where they sell better. 'Do you know my Oreo does voiceovers',said one GingerNut to a A lister recently. I think it was an ad. It is good news that Oreos and GingerNuts mix to make good sales.
I might be wrong here,but North Americans have yet to taste a decent GingerNut,or don't know what a GingerNut is yet.
I think both biscuits would sell well in Canada given good promotion. I heard both Oreo and GingerNut sales here were doing well,but that the Oreo called time on the GingerNut missing Walmart. The GingerNut preferred Waitrose. Both biscuit sales are due to rise and make profits soon. FWIW Oprah likes both biscuits and drinks both tea and coffee,black and white!

Donít like ginger nuts, never heard of Oreos. My favourite run of the mill biscuits are dark chocolate digestives (I lie - my real favourites are MILK chocolate digestives, but I brainwashed myself into believing that they are a step too far)

  Oreos are an American biscuit Mike. Black on the outside and white on the inside. Also sometimes used as a derogatory term by both black and white to refer to a certain type of black man/woman.
