I think Voldemort would be the kind of gut who eats custard creams, and he is deffinately a dunker. And believe there is some evidence in CoS that proves he would rather a Maryland cookie to a Jammy dodger.
Rich Tea biscuits are a creation of pure evil. They hold out the expectation of a biscuit, but deliver a dry and shrivelled result. Surely Voldermort would therefore keep the custard creams for himself and provide Rich Tea biscuits for the death eaters...
Voldemort is the personification of pure evil. It would therefore lead us to believe that although custard creams do have all the qualities of a biscuit a dark lord would indeed be suited to, they do not hold a candle to thier darker cousins...... the bourbon cream. Rich and pure in flavour, yet with a vile after-taste and disapointing air of being a factory staff room biscuit, the bourbon cream by name gives itself an air of elegance which would be apt as Voldemort hails from pure blood, tho is by muggle born. The bitter aftertaste can also pay dues to Voldemorts bitter and twisted persona, whilst the bourbon cream also holds rank as the darkest of the biscuit family.
I agree with this. Rich Tea are not the kind of biscuit a Dark Lord would eat - after all, they are very bad for dipping (see Peter Kay at the MEN) - and he would be more likely to provide them for the less worthy of his followers while indulging in something which involves far more chocolate.
This is a really crummy thread, it takes the biscuit in my opinion! Maybe Voldy would like cockroach clusters! Hmmmm, we never see Voldy eat, except snake venom from Nagini milked by the fair hand of Wormtail!
I don't think Voldemort would like any biscuit with a soft centre! He seems more of a Hobnob guy to me. I can just see him sitting there with a steaming mug of Unicorn's blood, wearing his fluffy Dementor slippers! :o )
Voldemort seems like a luxury biscuit nibbler to me. The sort of twisted evil person that dunks 'n' munches his way through an entire packet of Cadburys Double Chocolate Cookies without offering you a single one, leaving you to lick your fingers and hoover up the crumbs when he's not looking. I should imagine the biscuits are accompanied by a lovely cup of milky Camp coffee to dunk the biccies in. He probably has Pettigrew go fetch him some from the local Happy Shopper, lest he intergrate with the lowly Muggles. "Wanna biccie, wanna wanna wanna biccie NOW!!!!" (oh, hold on, thats Terry Pratchett)
Oh Mr Derri P.H. Stephens..how you mock me! I stated I believe Voldermort would prefer rich teas to custard creams because:
1. I believe he is a 'man' (if indeed a man can be a man with a broken soul) with traditional tastes. 2. He does not have a lot of time to eat (his days are full of killing people, cursing people, planning evil things, etc) and anything other than a rich tea is likely to stick in his teeth and cause him to have to use a large amount of energy picking bits out of his teeth (the oats from hobnobs, the jam from the dodgers). 3. He is a man who 'the whole' is very important too (other than with regards to his soul)and a custard cream has a tendency to break in two. 4. He has long straggely fingers with very long nails that I feel would find it difficult to pick up and handle a custard cream - a rich tea is a easier biscuit to pick up for those with floppy fingers. 5. There are many varieties of custard cream (e.g. tesco, tesco value, asda, sainsbury's, morrisons, happy shopper, etc) and so you never know quite what you're going to get... whereas a rich tea is just a rich tea...Voldermort would hate to not know what was coming and what to expect...he is a man who likes to be ready...he likes to always be one step ahead. 6. Voldermort would sound like a pansy if he asked for a 'custard cream' whereas a 'Rich tea' is quite a masculine choice I feel.
And finally.... 7. Voldermort has a new body now which he needs to take care of...as far as I'm aware custard creams are not sold in 25% less fat versions whereas Rich teas are...Voldermort needs to remember his new figure when he is making his biscuit choices. It would be no good if in the middle of the final duel with Harry, he died just because he couldn't run away fast enough due to the consumption of two too many full fat custard creams!!
So there we have it...Voldermort would prefer a rich tea to a custard cream,
Yours MOST sincerely Mr Derri P.H. Stephens, Emily
Yes but other biscuits have a tendency to 'crumb' whereas the grain of a rich tea is as such that it only causes a light powdering when first bitten in to....Voldermort would not look so 'frightening' and intimidating with a big bit of hobnob oat, digestive crumb, smudged custard, etc, on his lip!!
What about a Cow biscuit? Not too bad on the crumb front, just that weird biscuit sludge you get at the bottom of your cup of tea. But he could vanish that with a flick of his wand, I'm sure. They are also pretty old skool, a way for Voldemort to sit and relax, reminiscing about zee good old days. Although the cup of milky tea could spoil his image. (but the mug could have an evil slogan printed on it- something like "I enjoy killing people" or "This mug belongs to a violent wizard with psychotic tendencies" that sort of thing to balance it out.)
he probably has some sort of weak side, so he might like those soft gingerbread biscuits you get in m&s with the thick icing- but he would change it so it looked like his sign- so that he can explain it away if any death eater (or JKR) walks in...
And perhaps whilst sat by the light of his wand and the flickering of the fire in the hearth, with his mug of tea and evening biscuit, his 'slippered' feet would be those big gorilla feet slippers or perhaps Homer Simpson slippers?
And perhaps he would appear to be reading '101 ways to kill someone with your eyes closed' but inside the book he would have the latest copy of the Daily 'Wizard' Star hidden...checking out the hot witches on page 3 or 'Woman's Weekly' which he has a subscription to for the knitting patterns???
deffo homer slippers (homer rocks!!) I dunno about the biccies however I do think that voldy would really like those wee jelly snakes that you can buy in your 10p mixtures (do you still get 10p mixtures? or are they £1 now?)
