Exciting New App for Ordering Coffee in 2020

The mobile app ‘COFE’ is being described as the new ‘deliveroo’ but for coffee. The app claims to be an “online coffee marketplace” which allows people to pre-order their drinks from their local coffee shops or be delivered to them in select stores.

Mobile app for ordering coffee

The app is being launched in London very soon where it is bound to gain the most success due to demand. This helps busy workers get their daily coffee with ease and save a lot of time waiting for their drink to be made.

‘COFE’ is different from other pre-order services that are provided by companies such as Starbucks or Costa. This is because the app allows orders to be made from a variety of different cafes including boutique coffee shops. So far, almost 40 coffee shops have agreed to work with this app’s early trial in London.

In the UK, the average person buys three coffees each week – this adds up to around £300 per year. However, as Brits, if this helps fuel our day we won’t complain!

Do you know why Bourbon Biscuits have holes in them?

Have you ever thought to yourself, why do Bourbon biscuits have holes in them? Also, why don’t all biscuits have this?

Bourbon Biscuit

Mark Greenwell, on Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped has revealed there is a valid reason why Bourbon biscuits have holes in them. He states that these small holes in the biscuits are needed to allow for steam to escape. If it wasn’t for the holes – the biscuits would be likely to break. In order to achieve an even texture, the biscuit should have as little steam in it as possible.

This would explain why biscuits such as Ginger Nuts have no holes in them as they are intended to snap.

When producing Ginger Nut biscuits, the steam is kept inside the biscuit which enables it to snap perfectly. The trapped heat caramelises the sugar in the biscuit which creates a similar texture a boiled sweet.

This can explain how Ginger Nut achieve their iconic snap unlike Bourbon biscuits which are made to dunk without snapping them!

Cadbury states that: “The reaction to the launch of Cadbury Twirl Orange has been incredible and the product is in very high demand across the country.”

Samuel May – the lucky customer, had been looking for this particular chocolate bar for a while now. The last thing he had expected would be that he would have discovered a rare version in the shop.

Cadbury has said that they unfortunately cannot confirm that there will be any more of these limited edition orange twirls. Samuel is hoping that this chocolate bar is the only one of it’s kind to make his discovery even more exciting and rare.

A 25 year old Biscuit Tin kept in kitchen cupboard sells for £3,000

A couple have found an old Huntley and Palmers biscuit tin in their house that has been disregarded in one of their cupboards for many years. To this couples’ disbelief, when they brought the rare tin to an antique event – they discovered the biscuit tin is worth just over £3,000.

Rare Biscuit Tin

The 1929 collectors’ item is astounding as it still has its original cardboard box and has survived through disastrous events such as World War 2.

The couple were obviously delighted at this news, especially after hearing the biscuit tin could be worth around £1,000 – and it in the end sold for more.

New flavour of Custard Creams at a great price!

That’s right… Rhubarb custard creams! A classic combination loved by many, now in a biscuit.

Here at The Biscuit Baron we love new and different biscuit flavours and styles, so we couldn’t wait to try these. They’re similar in texture to the traditional custard cream, two crisp biscuit layers but with a sweet, slightly tart rhubarb flavoured cream. Sadly, despite the name there’s no taste of custard – but still a great biscuit and a nice change!

What’s even better? They are only 40p! Bargain.
