Once again this week we turn to Britons for our biscuit of the week, and to the classic Viscount. The Viscount has long enjoyed a prestigious place in the biscuit world, often taking center stage after the sandwiches at Sunday tea. Available in both Mint and Orange varieties, the Viscount has never strayed from this conservative two flavours path, shunning all other flavours, for reasons we can only guess at.

The Viscount design consists of a circular crunchy, slightly gritty biscuit base, with a small disc shaped blob of minty cream on top all covered in a fairly useful milk chocolate. Each biscuit is then wrapped in a square of colour coded foil, green for mint and orange for ... orange. Nowadays the foil also has words Viscount on it. The skilled Viscount eater will flatten out the foil and use it to make a small model or trinket.

Viscounts of old were highly regular affairs with their cream filling extending very close to the biscuit edge but today's Viscount seems to a bit chucked together. The review biscuit is by no means atypical with most of the packet looking like they had been in some sort of biscuit construction fight.

Cut 'N Pasted from a website devoted to the fine art of reviewing tea biscuits.
As an American, I'm not sure I'll completely understand, but my guess is that they would be a tasty snack at teatime, in either of the two flavours offered. Any help from our British cousins would be greatly appreciated. As for "crusty" and those insipid "vicunt" posts;

I prefer Scottish shortbread or biscuits from Duchy Originals to Viscounts.
