More On Killer Biscuits


In a follow-up to my recent post about Killer Biscuits, I have some good news about Custard Crèmes.

You’ll recall that these innocent looking cookies were rated the most likely to cause bodily harm while you eat them, scoring a whopping 5.63 on the Biscuit Injury Evaluation Scale. (By comparison, the Ginger Nut Biscuit ranked a measly 3.78.) Being the devil-may-care, caution-to-the-wind kind of gal that I am, I decided to do a little evaluating of my own.

I found a British goods store in West L.A. that carries the hard-to-find Custard Cremes. I purchased three boxes, and, just to be on the safe side, I hired a PIAL (personal injury accident lawyer), before I opened the deceptively charming gold and red packages of pale yellow cookies.

I’m happy to report that a) they are delicious and b) although I ate a hefty number of them (I’m very thorough when conducting a study), I was unharmed by the little buggers, if you don’t count the weight gain.

    I have a vague memory of reading about custard creams in a British book as a kid and deciding that they must be some sort of ice cream for some reason–I think maybe combining frozen custard with ice cream=custard creams. And probably because I was never very fond of sandwich cookies I’m sure I concluded that whatever child was getting excited about custard creams had to be talking about something truly delicious such as ice cream.

    Are you a fan of NPR’s Wait Wait, Don’t Tell me? or are they a fan of yours? I’m regularly seeing you and hearing them, refer to the same news stories. I’m happy to be a fan of both of you!
