Biscuit cookies may look all harmless and delicious, except they are lethal. According to a report in the Telegraph, almost one-third of interviewed UK adults have been splashed or scalded by hot drinks while dunking or fishing for remnants of a collapsed digestive. Even worse, 28 percent said they have choked on crumbs, ten percent have broken a tooth or filling, and three percent have poked themselves in the eye with a biscuit.
Of the fifteen popular biscuit types tested, Custard Creams were reported the riskiest, with wafers and the Bourbon sandwich cookies not too far behind. Jaffa Cakes tested the safest.
