What biscuit toppings?

Due to errors in treatment for an unpleasant throat condition I can no longer swallow solid food. Although that is not strictly true as I can 'eat' Carrs Cheese Melts. These. But to do so they must be covered with a thick coating of butter (Lurpak) and a topping which is where my question comes in because the second part of the triple wammy is my taste buds have been to a great extent been destroyed particularly those on the back of the tongue.

Consequently I have found that there are very few flavours that I can still enjoy. Marmite is top of the list, followed by a lemon curd and recently I have discovered Brussels Pate.

I did say eat but not eat in the real sense of the word as the third part of the triple wammy is my salivary glands have been severely affected. So these biscuits have to be washed down with a liquid usually coffee.

So I am looking for alternative suggestions to the toppings I can put on the biscuits bearing in mind I have probably tried most things.

Over to you folks.

Fentimans do ginger beer and also the alcoholic ginger beer. Very good brand name I believe.

You must have to dunk the biscuits in that then...

What dunked biscuits go best with rum then? I can imagine a ginger nut being OK, but a malted milk, yuk!

I don't know if it as been previously mentioned (I haven't bothered to read the full previous 4 pages), but have you considered trying the various dip selection trays that might contain a number of dips that are available from places like Asda or Iceland etc?.

Quickbeam. Those Scottish shortbread type soak up quite a lot of rum. so are ideal, mind you they also soak up a lot of Whisky if that's your kind of stuff. Probably because they are Scottish.

spuds' suggestion about the variety type trays of dips in supermarkets looks like a good idea.

I wondered if maybe ship's biscuits might be your favourite.

Lots of ideas here people and soon as I pluck up courage to venture into what will be strange territory, a supermarket, I will let you know how I get on.

Thanks all.

Another try-out is cod's roe eggs (fresh or jar), rather nice and perhaps salty, and the poor person's caviar ;o)
