Malted milk biscuits[edit]

Is there not a type of biscuit called a "Malted Milk" biscuit? No wonder this article had the incompleteness tag! ACEOREVIVED (talk) 16:04, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes, there is - and I have just found out that has its own article in Wikipedia at Malted_milk_(biscuit). Would any one care to add it to the list, thank you? ACEOREVIVED (talk) 13:20, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Should we change the opening sentence?[edit]

I wonder whether we should change the opening sentence that says "This is a list of cookie and biscuit varieties". "Cookie" is just the American English word for biscuit, so cookies ARE biscuits; would it not be more sensible if the opening sentence said "This is a list of cookies (U.S. English) or biscuits (U.K. English) varieties - changing the word "and" to "or" would seem to me to make more sense. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 14:56, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

That sounds like a good plan. Maybe we should even consider a page move to List of biscuits and cookies. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 18:25, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
Not sure about the "US/British English" thing. It's not just language. They are two different things, and have separate articles. Perhaps the lede needs expanding to explain the definitions. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 20:08, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
I agree with the proposal. The standard word is biscuit. The American usage is a minority.Royalcourtier (talk) 07:13, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

Another suggestion[edit]

Another omission from this table seems to be the Lemon Puff biscuit. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 14:59, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

It could go there now, because I have created an article on the Lemon Puff in Wikipiedia. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 15:47, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

It has now got deleted. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 19:50, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Well, going to Wikipedia: Articles for deletion and searching through the archived topics, there did not appear to be a reference to "Lemon Puffs" anywhere so I do not know what happened to the article, perhaps it was just never saved. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 14:37, 10 December 2012 (UTC)


Whatever you call them, cookies/biscuits are according to our articles baked. They certainly are not the same thing as pastries, and I'll be removing pastries (and have done some already). Dougweller (talk) 20:47, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

I agree - pastries could go at List of pastries. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 19:52, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Changing a column heading[edit]

Shouldn't the column headed "Place" really be headed with "Place of origin", as I believe that that is what the column is meant to be saying? ACEOREVIVED (talk) 15:26, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Toll House Inn[edit]

Should Toll House Inn get its own section? My understanding is it's a brand of cookie, not a distinct type. Johnsonmx (talk) 06:33, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
