    From a well known source..

    "Cake or biscuit?

    In the UK, value added tax is payable on chocolate covered biscuits, but not on chocolate covered cakes. McVities defended its classification of Jaffa Cakes as cakes in court, producing a 12" (30 cm) Jaffa Cake to illustrate that its Jaffa Cakes were simply miniature cakes. McVities argued that a distinction between cakes and biscuits is, among other things, that biscuits would normally be expected to go soft when stale, whereas cakes would normally be expected to go hard. It was demonstrated to the Tribunal that Jaffa Cakes become hard when stale. Other factors taken into account by the Chairman, Potter QC, included the name, ingredients, texture, size, packaging, marketing, presentation, appeal to children, and manufacturing process. Potter ruled that the Jaffa Cake is a cake. McVities therefore won the case and VAT is not paid on Jaffa Cakes in the UK"

    But ..

    "However, in 1999, the Sun newspaper published a poll which suggested that the majority of its readers thought of the Jaffa Cake as a biscuit, not cake"

    Which I think clinches it, they are cakes!! ;) :lol::lol:

    Indeed! ;)

    I would expect nothing less than 'Hobnobs' from the good doctor, quality, with safety are his bywords and of course all within a controlled and frugal budget.

    All you need now is Mic to descend upon you with a bottle of the finest wine a selection of the finest English cheeses, a crock pot of pate (nothing in a plastic pot for our Oxfordshire gentleman) and of course freshly baked crusty bread all to be washed down with a cup of his finest coffee - NOW that would take some beating:cool:

    On the other hand you could get Carnut descend upon you with a bag of chips:shock:

    BIG thanks to the chaps at MBS Southampton. Today they saved me lots of hassle and a good £800.00 sorting out my 2 damaged catalysts. The car drives like new once more and i am very happy with the result, the service and the price. Thanks so much, will commit to using you in the future for all my Merc needs.
    11/10
    Regards,
    Colin
