While new and exciting biscuits are all well and good, a survey from earlier this year found that it was the humble chocolate digestive that had the top spot in Brit's hearts.
Researchers at Perspectus Global surveyed 2,000 Brits to ask them to name their favourite biscuit, with a whopping 69 percent opting for a chocolate digestive.
Shortbread came in second place, followed by chocolate fingers, Jaffa Cakes and chocolate HobNobs rounding out the top five.
Other top 20 entries included rich tea, ginger nuts, custard creams and bourbons.
I'm not sure who is picking shortbread as second best, but there's no accounting for taste, is there?
Director at Perspectus Global Ellie Glason said: "It's interesting to see from the research that American imports such as the Oreo and Maryland cookie have found their way into the top 20, even beating the Garibaldi and fig roll.
"Yet the British public clearly still hold the chocolate digestive close to their hearts, with the biscuit emerging as the clear winner of the poll."
The survey also found that we eat an average of 11 biscuits each per week in the UK - but we can safely assume that's gone up while people are working from home.
