Have you ever seen or tasted a graham cracker? They're among the less fat of most cookie/cracker/snacks. Not that they're health food or anything.

Aha. I stand corrected. They are not the fattest cookies in America. It's just funny to note that when people are talking about some foodstuffs they use the same word about completely different foodstuffs in different countries :D

Incidentally, graham crackers were invented to suppress carnal urges. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_crackers

As was corn flakes... funny to think Kellog's was "health food" :lol:

And Digestive biscuits

"The first ever digestive biscuit was created by a new young employee, Alexander Grant. The name Digestive was derived from its high content of baking soda as an aid to food digestion. Over one hundred years later the McVitie's Digestive remains a firm favourite and is the highest selling brand in the everyday biscuit segment."
