i feel another "Jaffa Cake - is it a cake or a biscuit?" debate coming on.....

I'm more puzzled by why biscuits are seen as a luxury but cakes are not!

It's choccy biscuits that are seen as a luxury.......digestives no VAT,choccy digestives VAT!

'tis strange though!:?

any biscuits with chocolate on them are seen as luxury, but ordinary biscuits and cakes are not, hence the great ]Jaffa_Cake_Debate!

technically, a cake is defined as going hard when stale, whilst a biscuit goes soft when stale. At least that's what i heard. as someone who hasn't touched a jaffa cake in a while, let alone left one out to go stale, i possibly couldn't comment on the jaffa debate

EDIT i see this is contained in the wiki link. god bless the internet
