What is a Jammie Dodger?

A. A sticky fruit candy that predates Gummies

B. A traditional Scottish venison dish

C. A type of English biscuit

D. A strawberry ice cream sandwich found at baseball parks


If you drank as much English tea as I do (9 cups a day), you’d know that a Jammie Dodger is an English biscuit—specifically a shortbread one with a sticky jam filling. (Just right when it’s 3 pm, at least another two hours to go writing chapters for the third edition of The Wine Bible). Other classic English biscuits include: the Cadbury Finger, Fox’s Crunch Cream, the Hobnob, and the compellingly named Digestive.
