The NT News has kicked off a debate with a list of the 10 best biscuits and in the words of the internet: it’s on.
The news outlet published the list as follows:
TOP TEN DEFINITIVE BISCUIT LIST:
1A. CHICKEN IN A BISCUIT
2 TRIPLE WAFER – CHOCOLATE ONLY
3. TIM TAM – ORIGINAL
4. MALT ‘O’ MILK
5. DELTA CREAM
6. SHORTBREAD YO-YOS MADE BY OUR NANA
7. TEDDY BEAR
9. SCOTCH FINGER

But the internet wasn’t having it.
Despite Jatz taking out first spot, tweeters were quick to point out that Jatz (and further down the list, Salada) wasn’t a biscuit, but a cracker.
Jatz and Saladas aren’t biscuits they’re crackers. #justsayin

SALADA IS NOT A BISCUIT. SUB FOR MILK ARROWROOT. ALSO NO-ONE ACTUALLY PLANS TO EAT A SALADA IT JUST HAPPENS WHEN YOU’RE BORED AND SWINGING THE CUPBOARD DOORS.

I don’t know who you are. If I took the time to know you, I probably wouldn’t like you BUT this comment is totally the way they should market Salada.

As I sat eating a box of Jatz once, I discovered that they have more kJ per 100g than hot dogs. Needless to say, hotdogs are my biscuit of choice now. #fit

There needs to be two lists.
Biscuits, and Crackers.
To do otherwise is just crackers.
Especially when they try to make out that Jatz is #1. How, dude?? Zero chocolate content… WTAF!?!

This is an absolute mess you guys. Comparing sweet and savoury biscuits is completely insane.

who the fuck considers jatz to be a biscuit. they’re crackers.
— Nick Schadegg (@nickschadegg) March 3, 2019
Jatz are crackers.
Saladas are sandwich crackers.
Teddy bears and malt-o-milks are average on their best day.
This is why you people get eaten by crocs.
