Major Tragedy in Southern England

I am a dunker. I take my biscuit and dunk it in my tea. Some people may think that this is gross and certainly I don't do it when having tea with Her Majesty or at the Ritz. However, half of my Fairtrade Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie has just disappeared into my tea. An emergency response crew has failed to extricate it and I very much regret that it is there for good, or at least until I have drunk what I can of this revolting mixture. Advice and help would be gratefully received.

While I commend you for buying Fairtrade cookies I don't think they are the most dunkable. You need something with a little more staying power. I am also in Southern England. Why did I not hear the emergency sirens when the response crew arrived!?!

I think that it is because they are a crumby team. (Terrible I know). According to Peter Kaye, Hobnobs are the boys. But I didn't have any. Don't have any biscuits at all now, except cheese. Still I'm half way down a G&T instead.

I love it. I want to know, to what lengths the emergency response team went to to save the ever plunging biscuit. Did it just slide into the tea effortlessly or did it send up little bubbles of protest on its way in? In other words did it suffer much? As for it being a revolting mixture and you having to drink it, imagine the plight of the poor biscuit on its way down your gullet. Need I say more?

The leader of the team cast her beady eye over the proceeding but pronounced the dive as unsafe due to heavy chocolate chip falls. As for the biscuit; I don't care about the sodden thing. It let me down so badly that I think that I shall buy a new packet just to spite it.

Poor baby! I've had the same thing happen, but with a different kind of cookie, I mean biscuit, and I've rescued my own cookie with a spoon! Have you considered using a spoon, p1kef1sh? It works, trust me. As a long-time dunker, I've had to explore all sorts of ways to rescue cookies aka biscuits and I've found that the very best rescue is with a spoon. I would happily lend you one of my spoons if you need one, and I would even go so far as to use it to extricate that biscuit from that tea, but as you said in another answer, maybe it's time for a gin. I wouldn't mind a cocktail right about now. Hmmm, now I'm thinking about that.........

BUT - if I want a cocktail, I'm going to have to trudge through the snow to the bar. I have nothing at home to drink. Sniff, sniff. No fair - I don't want to trudge through the snow today. But I might. I just might.

I think you are going to have to take a loss on it and start off - with both a new brew of tea and a cookie. Take care!

Thank you but I am going to have a gin instead. Such is life.
