13. Malted Milk
The Malted Milk is the ultimate in Nan biscuits. “Will you have a biscuit?” she asks, pouring a cup of tea. Out of the corner of your eye you see the treats tin. Maybe she’s made shortbread. Maybe there’s a fairy cake in there. Oh dear. It’s not. It’s a few Malted Milks, and they’ve gone a bit soft. Brilliant.
5. M&S Bakery cookie
This is technically a cookie, we know. And it’s not sold in multipacks, making it a solitary eating experience. But oh! what an experience. Melting chocolate, fresh from the oven (if you’re lucky) and big enough to share with your friends if you’re feeling generous.
