The Scottish Biscuit. For our American viewers, a biscuit is what you call a cookie. Example: Oreos, Chips Ahoys (a fav of mine), Girl Scout cookies. A biscuit in Scotland is a Digestive, Rich Tea, or if you’re a good boy, a Chocolate Digestive, Kit Kat, or a Jaffa Cake.
Do you know it costs about 10 bob (50pence, 96cents at today exchange rate) in Scotland for a 200 pack of Digestive biscuits (or it did back in September 2002), and about $10 for a 20 pack in NYC. Which I have been known to pay from time to time, as nothing goes better with that cheddar cheese than a good old fashioned BGB!!
