    Jaffa Cakes: Biscuit or Cake?

    The source of one of the most complex conundrums ever to challenge mankind:

    Is it a cake or is it a biscuit?

    These small circular sponges topped with chocolate and squidgy orange stuff have been the subject of much debate over the years. Even the British government has become embroiled in this web of snack-related intrigue. At present the Jaffa Cake is classified as a cake but the British government is attempting to get it reclassified as a biscuit. This would mean it would come under a higher tax bracket as biscuits aren't as perishable as cakes, or something technical like that.

    Tought one. I'd put them down as a biscuit because they look like one and are packaged like one. Lime flavour is my favourite.

    Nasty stuff that...

    When I visit the deep south I'm going to stuff myself silly on fried chicken and pecan pie

    Some great descriptions of southern cuisine in John Grisham's books.

    ATM, I'm trying very hard to enjoy a Moon Pie. Sadly, I can't. They're kind of gross.

    I'll send you a couple of moon pies. I don't think Fried Chicken would handle the trip that well.

    I think the only time I've seen a moon pie was in The Green Mile when it got spat all over the prison guard.

    I think you need to wash it down with RC Cola to get the full effect.

    After that, RC Cola won't touch it. Maybe rum in RC Cola, but not just cola. As is, Diet Pepsi had to do.

    You've said quite enough.

    Of course, I personally find head cheese (a gelatinous processed meat) to be completely repulsive and I do not understand how people can enjoy it.

    Oh, there's all kinds of gross crap that people eat locally. No offense to the locals.

    Chitterlings
    Souse (aka, head cheese)
    Hogs Trotters (pigs feet, pickled or otherwise)
    Pickled eggs
    Cracklins
    Pork Rinds (I actually like those)
    Tripe

    The list goes on, but those are some of the more obvious ones.

    Lime? Yuck! How about vanilla?
