The burning question*: Are Jaffa Cakes really biscuits or… cakes?

This and every Monday, let TheJournal.ie distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. The week looms ahead and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing questions…

This week: An unholy row has broken out among our staffers on whether they consider Jaffa Cakes to be biscuits or cakes. One member of sister site TheScore.ie believes that as cakes go hard when they fall out of date but biscuits go soggy, they should be considered… cakes. To which a writer on TheJournal.ie newsdesk yelped: “But they’re in the BISCUIT aisle.”

Help us out with this one. Are Jaffa Cakes…
