Best biscuit in the World

After serious consideration, I believe that the bourbon cream is the best biscuit in the World! My reasons are as follows:

Its slim design makes it easy to hold between your pointer, middle finger and thumb. This also means that you don’t have to break it before dunking.

Did I mention dunking? As a consequence of having two thick biscuit shields as an outer layer, and a smooth creamy centre, the bourbon can remain in a hot cuppa for a good second without disintegrating into the tea, never to be seen again!

Its distinctive, moreish flavour makes it impossible to just have one!

If there is a better biscuit out there, I would like someone to let me know. Ask your friends, parents, neighbours, teachers etc.

Please write a comment below as I would love to hear your thoughts. Mr Banton

(P.s. I would also like to hear about your favourite healthy snacks.)

Fun in the snow!

The snow is amazing! I hope everyone is having fun outside. Oscar and I built this, this morning, followed by a lengthy snowball fight.

Transforming

At the river there was a drain. In the drain there was a talking piranha. He took me down the drainpipe and turned me into a piranha forever. I went to different drainpipes. It was fun. He said, “I was going to stay a piranha.” But in the river I transformed back into a human again. But I had a potion in my pocket. I drank it. I set myself on fire and fell down the drainpipe and I turned into a rock. I couldn’t breathe so I got a floaty and I floated into the middle of the ocean.
