What's that all about?

 

One of my fave biscuits is Arnotts Mint Slice. You know the choc coated, chocolate biscuit with the mint icing topping.

Well, they're great, but they come with 13 in the pack.

 

So you eat 2 at a time until you get to the last 3 and it's like,

"What do I do with that?"

Do you show strength and only take your normal two? That leaves this one forlorn biscuit in the tray just taking up space and you thinking to yourself,

"What if I want two the next time I feel peckish? I've only got one left in the pack."

"Ah stuff it! I'll eat all three of 'em!"

 

Why don't eggs come 13 to a carton? Beers? Or any other number of things?

 

Why do they tease us with biscuits like this?

Haha. That's like, why do they sell Burgers in packs of 4 or 8 but buns in 6's?

I didn't put that in my original post, but yes, I had thought of that to get 26.

 

Honestly though, that is just a devious ploy by the biscuit makers to make you by 2 packs.

 

It's evil I tell you.

Same thing happens at Home Depot with the packaging of things like machine screws. Odd things like a 3 pack. when you need 4. So you buy 2 packs and can never locate the leftovers you saved for "next time".

Back to the biscuit. I had a pal, back in the early 60s who always kept a packet of cigarettes with only one in it. That way when it he took out that packet for a fag he said, "I would offer you one, but I only have one left".

 

So let this be with your lonely biscuit.

 

I think this solution to your problem takes the biscuit.
