Marks And Sparks Attempt To Explain The Truth Behind Biscuitgate

The saga of the rogue custard cream continues...

Don’t mess with our biscuits, especially in Winter.

Truth be told, we were a little bit bricking it for Marks and Spencers yesterday when a “shocking truth” was unveiled about their luxury biscuits.

However, a spokesperson from Marks and Spencers has come forward to shed some light on the situation, insisting that there is nothing untoward going on here.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, he said: “Customers can rest assured the biscuits remain our own luxury recipe covered in milk chocolate, they are simply made using the same mould as a custard cream.”
