Lemon Jammie Dodgers?!

The fact that I found the discovery of lemon Jammie Dodgers quite as exciting as I did is probably an indication that I need to get out more. However I did discover them and I was deeply thrilled by it. Jammie Dodgers are a childhood favourite of mine – not as epic as the biscuit king; The almighty Hobnob, but definitely a top-5 biscuit nonetheless.

I am a huge fan of lemony things. My favourite dessert of all time for example is lemon Meringue pie. When it comes to things to spread on bread, toast or crumpets, my preference is often lemon curd. So combining the awesome of a Jammie Dodger with lemon seemed like a pretty damn good idea to me. As it turns out it was a good idea, but they weren’t as epic as I thought they’d be. I’m not sure if that’s because the execution of the crafting of a lemon Jammie Dodger wasn’t as good as the idea itself, or because I had allowed myself to build up unrealistically high expectations for them! Either way, they were still pretty tasty.

It’s also possible to get little bite-sized Jammie Dodgers now. They’re good, but looking at them makes me wonder if there are enough miniature things in the world to play a prank on someone where they wake up surrounded by small versions of things and think they’ve grown into a giant overnight. I suspect you probably could but that’s a hell of a lot of effort and expense to go to for a fairly tame prank.
