International English Food Terms - Digestive Biscuits and Graham Crackers

Digestive Biscuits and Graham Crackers

These two items are fairly different, but are used similarly (e.g. to make crumb crusts for a cheesecake). Graham crackers are sweeter, and are available in different flavors (e.g. cinnamon, chocolate). Digestive biscuits are richer, and while slightly sweet, are often used eaten with cheese. They are also available coated on one side with milk chocolate or dark chocolate. Digestive biscuits are common in the Northeast United States, served with tea. Peek Frean is a common brand in the United States, however the original producer McVities still produces the biscuit in the UK.

Famous quotes containing the word graham:

    Scatter my ashes, strew them in the air:
    Lord since thou know’st where all these atoms are,
    I’m hopeful thou’lt recover once my dust,
    And confident thou’lt raise me with the just.
    —James Graham Marquess of Montrose (1612–1650)
