Noun: A small, typically round cake of bread leavened with baking powder, baking soda, or sometimes yeast.
not: 'big squashed rolo'
They are small, and they are round, but to call these 'biscuits' is a down right lie. To prove it, I dissected one:
Yes, they do contain six tiny biscuit balls, lost in amongst a sea of caramel, but there's definately no yeast in there.
You could make a more accurate Rolo Biscuit by getting a rolo and putting it on top of a biscuit and then eating it.
In reality, 'Rolo Biscuits' are merely large, individually wrapped, flat Munchies. Which is fine. BUT WHY ARE NESTLE TRYING TO CLAIM THEY ARE BISCUITS?
A wise old man once told me "The proof of the biscuit is in the dunking" - well it might have been a wise old man or it might of been the coco-pops monkey, I can't remember.
But let's see if you can dunk a Rolo Biscuit in a hot cup of tea:
The hot tea disintegrates them in seconds, leaving a chocolately gloop waiting for you at the bottom of your mug when you've finished. You might as well just chuck a couple of Rolos in your cuppa - and what right minded person would do that?
Just to rub it in, I carried out the Dunk Test on two new (proper) caramel biscuits that have hit the supermarkets:
CADBURY'S CARAMEL BISCUITS:
FOX'S CHOCOLATEY ...CARAMEL
Fox's Chocolately Caramel have an exposed shortcake biscuit covered with a plate of chocolate sandwiching a layer of caramel in between. Would the biscuit suffer from not having a protective chocolate shell? Well, they do get a bit drippy, and the shortcake gets quite soggy, but this only adds to the flavour. The better quality of biscuit really shines through here.
