    If I pray the wall doesn't get built, and it doesn't, do I get a brick?

    And if it does, can I take a brick from it?

    Thank you, Herlock. Do people eat them because they taste good or for their digestive benefits or both?

    Purely for taste c.d.

    Many prefer the chocolate variety. Until I checked Wiki I didnít know of the original claim of aiding digestion.

    Cheese can be a bit dodgy before turning in.

    I think the "digestive" bit was a bit of a marketing gimmick, to be honest. Wikipedia says that it was once believed that the sodium bicarbonate in the biscuits acted as an antacid, but I'm inclined to take that with a pinch of salt... so to speak
    Hi Gareth,

    As kids, my brothers and I used to be given plain digestives with cheddar cheese, and Ovaltine to drink, shortly before bedtime. Mum and Dad had the same - and my Dad always suffered from indigestion, so I don't think the digestives could have helped him much! Pass me that pinch of salt.

    Love,

    Caz

    So many kids are going to be disappointed the first (and only) time they get their mum to buy a packet of those biscuits.

    Superstition is a funny thing. My brother is not a religious man, but he is very superstitious when it comes to football. He has all these little rituals he needs to perform in order for his team to do well. As if the fortunes of Liverpool FC stood or fell on what one Norwegian guy did in front of the telly.

    There are other well-known brands in the UK of course, which reminds me...

    Q: What do you call a soul singer with a biscuit on his head?

    A: Lionel Rich Tea.

    According to Wiki:

    The digestive was first developed in 1839 by two Scottish doctors to aid digestion at a place called Logie Steading in Forres
    I donít think that theyíd aid your digestion much if you scoffed down a whole pack, as my biscuit-addict brother has been known to do

    They'd say all the other builders' prayers had been answered, if those two had scoffed all the chocolate digestives during the tea break.
