Nationwide Search For Bite Sized Biscuit Stories

SEPTEMBER 2008


It's Amazing What A Nationwide Search For Bite Sized Biscuit Stories Can Turn Up!

Over a Thousand fanatical Kiwis have already posted their own weird, wacky and wonderful biscuit stories on www.griffins.co.nz in an attempt to win a year's supply of Griffinʼs biscuits. With all of these stories, the one thing that keeps surprising us is just how inventive New Zealanders can be when eating Griffinʼs biscuits. None of this just eating them straight out of the packet for us Kiwis! It seems that from Kaitaia to Bluff, Kiwis are using their worldfamous ingenuity to come up with different ways of enjoying their favourite biscuits. Some of these are way too good not to share:

Bite Sized Story 1:

Jack, a university student, moved into his Dunedin flat to find a MallowPuff nailed to the wall with a sign beside it reading – “The MallowPuff that must never be touched”. For three years the MallowPuff watched over the flat, never touched, and its existence never questioned. Jack moved out, and the MallowPuff remained for the next residents to watch over, where it resides to this day.

Bite Sized Story 2: An 83-year-old has been cracking Gingernuts on his elbow for good luck since he was a boy.

If it breaks into three pieces, then thatʼs good luck. He says itʼs all a matter of technique! Bite Sized Story 3:

One Mum has a novel way to eat Chocolate Thins. Take a packet of Chocolate Thins and with a hair dryer, melt the chocolate coating. While the chocolate is still warm, decorate with red, yellow and green pebbles making a traffic light. Perfect for little kids and big kids alike.

Bite Sized Story 4:

A popular chocolaty treat with students is to suck a mug of Milo through a Chit Chat straw. Apparently Chit Chats and Squiggles are also delicious when broken up into pieces and mixed into a tub of ice-cream.

Bite Sized Story 5:

We've heard about cheese being paired with Super Wines for a savory snack, but one imaginative woman has come up with her own unique match – making a Chocolate Chippie Biscuit sandwich with crunchy peanut butter. She swears it's delicious, but we think weʼll leave you to be the judge of that!

You can search for more fun, quirky and just plain bizarre ideas for enjoying Griffin's biscuits at www.griffins.co.nz. Or, even better, if you have your own special way of eating your favourite Griffinʼs biscuit, why not share it with the country? You could win yourself a yearʼs supply of Griffinʼs biscuits!
