Spotlight On Biscuit - Age Of Empires Online

In this week's Spotlight on Biscuit, inimitable UK games commenter Total Biscuit (inimitable unless you have a thick British accent and a pot of coffee that's more sugar than liquid, anyway) has taken a closer look at Age of Empires Online. A wise choice, seeing as it's a curious game that's better seen in motion than read about. Also, I put a rare biscuit to the test- the Boland's Jam Mallow.

The Jam Mallow is an Irish confection (you might find it in the International Foods aisle if you live in the UK) consisting of a slightly doughy biscuit, on top of which are two rows of small mallow peaks, covered in that kind of pink candy fur. GOOD THINGS ABOUT IT: Excellent mouthfeel. BAD THINGS ABOUT IT: The inlay holds biscuits in stacks of two, which causes the mallow on top of the lower biscuit to stick to the biscuit proper of the biscuit above it. CONCLUSION: S'alright.
