    Why are Nice biscuits called that?

    Q. Why are 'Nice' biscuits called that?

    A. I don't know because they are possibly one of the nastiest biscuits ever, perhaps its sarcasm.

    I've some 'Nice' biscuits downstairs, but I've also some Jaffa cakes, so they remain unopened.

    i always thought they were called it due to some kind of relation to Nice in France as they have the same pronounciation (dont think thats spelt right, but im too lazy to check) as da_ging pointed out.

    Nice biscuits have been a family favourite since 1922. Named after the city in the south of France, Nice biscuits were considered to be a sophisticated treat to have with morning or afternoon tea.

    That's quite some record.

    Don't the HEXUS forums EVER get sweeped and the old threads put out in the recycling bin?
