If you don’t already know it, then you have probably guessed that we love eating our Jammy Toast here at Jammy Toast. What you may not realise is, we also love Jaffa Cakes. So this weekend we were intrigued to find out that the nation’s favourite way of eating a Jaffa Cake is wrong, according to research. While a third of fans go for the Half Mooner and take a bite to create a half moon shape then polish off the remainder, boffins say their technique fails to make the most of the flavours. A study by food scientist Dr Stuart Farrimond found the All Rounder – preferred by more than a quarter of biscuit lovers – is the perfect method. For nibbling around the edge and saving the centre with the orange filling until last “gives the almost perfectly optimised balance of zesty orange, slightly bitter chocolate and sweet airy sponge,” the report revealed.
