Biscuits can serve as the most convenient breakfast or snack item every time you are hungry. Just tear open a pack of biscuits and start munching on those delicious hard breads. You can munch on them while you are walking to school or when you are at work. They serve as an excellent alternative if we are unable to have a complete meal.

Remember when you were a kid, nothing tasted as delicious as dipping biscuits in hot tea and eating them or separating two cream biscuits and licking the cream off. Well, that’s the wonder of biscuits. They come in so many varieties that we can never get tired of eating them. They can be raised with baking powder or soda and can be referred to as bread or soft cakes. The flavors, types, shapes and sizes of biscuits are limitless. As they can be bought from almost anywhere and even be baked at home, they do not fail to entice people from all age groups to consume them.

Biscuits are believed to have gotten their name from the Middle French word for biscuit which is bis which means twice and coquere which means to cook. The reason for them being called “to cook twice” is because they are first required to be baked and then dried in ovens. The entire world now uses this term except for the United States where biscuits refer to soft bread products that are baked only once. Biscuits not only keep you from feeling hungry at work or school but also on long journeys. Due to the fact that they posses starch, they ensure the consumer does not go hungry. Here in Singapore, when young army men go out for camps in the jungles, they depend on biscuits to provide them with the necessary starch and nutrients they need.


Manufacturers are constantly trying to bake better quality, softer and tastier biscuits to out do their competitors. If anybody has tried cookies from the restaurant Subway, you would definitely not differ to say that those cookies aren’t delicious. Cookies are also a type of biscuits. There are many varieties of biscuits available out there, but the most common would be rolled, drop and scone biscuits. Rolled biscuits are one of the most common type of biscuits that we can see almost everywhere. They are made when the mixture is kneaded and rolled out to be cut into circular shapes. Drop biscuits tend to not have a uniform shape as they are placed on baking sheets with spoons due to their sticky nature. They have a rougher appearance as compared to rolled biscuits. Lastly, scones are biscuits that are usually made using cream and butter. Eggs and raisins can be added to add flavor and dress your biscuits up.

Biscuits continue to gain popularity with all age groups due to their delicious taste and varieties that cater to everyone’s taste buds.
