Here is a new solution to an age old problem that has been around since the invention of tea and biscuits. Simply place the Cookie Catcher, a simple mesh device, into a mug of hot tea and you can dunk your favourite biscuits without fear of ruining your beverage.
Let’s face it, we all love a crafty dunk from time to time and we have all suffered that dunking dilemma of how long will the biscuit hold on before your drink is ruined by the sweet sludge at the bottom of the mug.
Biscuit dunking is a British institution. We drink 185 million cups of tea a day.
Comedian Peter Kay performs a side splitting sketch about dunking ( YouTube, Peter Kay on biscuits) and on Heston Blumenthal’s recent series on Channel 4 where the Michelin-Starred chef proves biscuits taste better after dunking, by using an industrial CT scanner at Nottingham University. (Heston’s Fantastical Food, series one, episode 3, 20/11/2012).
At home or at work, Hob Nob or Chocolate Digestive, The Cookie Catcher is a must for anyone who wants to enjoy their tea break no matter which biscuit they choose to dunk.
