What is the biggest selling biscuit in the UK?

Last year (2022), the best-selling British biscuit of 2022 was McVitie's Ginger Nuts, according to British Corner Shop UK. Yes - can you believe that these crunchy, fiery nibbles are well-loved for tea time - or just for a sweet treat?

Is a Jaffa cake a biscuit or a cake?

When it comes to biscuit history, this is the age-old question. McVitie's have been making the Jaffa Cake since 1927, but were challenged when labelling them as 'cakes' in 1991. Then, the debate began: dividing families, ending friendships and sparking a historical legal dispute between McVities and Her Majesty's Customs and Excise.

During this court case, McVitie's baked a giant Jaffa Cake to prove that Jaffa cakes were cakes - and not biscuits. Does that settle the argument? Probably not - but, they are legally recognised as chocolate-covered cakes, says Kerseys.
