    I saw this in Morrison's supermarket in Clacton today for £1.25. it includes everything you need to make six transformer shaped biscuits (or cookies if you prefer), and has a cut out and keep Bumblebee and Optimus on the back! IMG_20170317_104511.jpg IMG_20170317_104522.jpg

    The wife bought our boys one of these a couple of weeks ago from our local Tesco.

    The kids loved making them.

    Biscuits are what you have with sausage and gravy at breakfast or with fried chicken dinner... these are cookies. :D 

    So basically this is a cookie mix with transformers cardboard standees. Expected something like shaped cookie cutters or cookies with transformers printed on the cookie.

    These have been out for a while. A month or so ago Tescos were selling them on offer for £1.

    I tried to pre-empt any smart-arsery in the first post ;) 
    Besides, fried chicken, sausage, gravy and cookies sounds like an ideal meal for any time of day. Mmmmm :lol

    Incorrect. In the UK, and many other places around the world, these are biscuits. Cookies, in the UK and such other places, are a type of biscuit. As this news article was about the UK, the term "biscuit" is the correct one.

    Let's leave ignorant ethnocentricity at the door, shall we?

    You can say it til' you're blue in the face. Language is about context. The correct term here is "biscuit".
