People Are Kicking Off About The 'Correct' Way To Eat Chocolate Digestives
| Last updated
It is quite annoying to be told you have been eating something the 'wrong way'. Indeed, if you're reading this, the chances are you have been eating the correct way, hence you're not dead.
But just because the purpose of eating is to supply your body with the energy it needs to keep being alive, doesn't necessarily mean that merely chewing and swallowing your food is enough to be considered wholly 'correct' eating. You've got to consider social etiquette too, and more importantly still, the way you're eating could mean you're missing out on flavour.
This brings us to one of the UK's most treasured biscuits, the chocolate digestive; the ordinary digestive's far more gregarious sibling.
Journalist Amna Saleem opened up a can of worms on Twitter when she suggested that the chocolate side, commonly considered to be the bottom, is in fact the top. Accordingly, she advised the biscuit should be eaten chocolate side down for maximum enjoyment.
You can see the logic - put the chocolate directly on your tongue, where the taste buds are.
But of course, the response was not a unanimous and unquestioning 'yes, makes sense' from the greater Twittersphere. Indeed, many seemed outraged and even repulsed by the very suggestion.
Unperturbed by the backlash, if you can call it that, Amna bolstered her preferred methodology with supporting evidence from McVitie's, no less - the creators of the biscuit.
But while this may prove the chocolate side is the bottom, that doesn't necessarily mean you should eat it the right way around. Oranges, grapes and raspberries, for example, can be enjoyed just as much if eaten upside down... Food for thought.
