LONDON, September 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
When it comes to choosing a biscuit to enjoy with a hot drink, a significant third of Britain's break time dunkers favour the British classic, the rich tea biscuit, as revealed in a recent survey by office fruit and milk delivery company, Fruitdrop.
Opinion is evenly split between Britain's second favourite biscuits, with the Hobnob and chocolate digestive each scoring 25% of votes as best biscuit to dunk in a hot drink. Nostalgic classics, the custard cream and bourbon biscuit fare disappointingly, with 9% citing the custard cream as the best biscuit to dunk and just 8% choosing the bourbon biscuit.
In order of preference, Britain's favourite biscuits for dunking are:
1) Rich tea (33%)
2) Hobnob (25%), chocolate digestive (25%)
3) Custard cream (9%)
4) Bourbon (8%)
Ben Thompson, managing director of Fruitdrop comments: "Dunking a biscuit into tea or coffee is a time honoured break time tradition. We all know tea and biscuits are brilliant together and our survey indicates the rich tea is not only a British classic, but a British favourite."
Thompson continues: "Milk is the cornerstone of many hot beverages, with tea and coffee staple drinks in offices across the country it's essential to have milk in the fridge! I realised that running out to buy milk during a working day sometimes just isn't convenient, so Fruitdrop now delivers milk as well as boxes of fresh fruit to offices throughout the UK, making break times easier across the country."
