The Ministry of Biscuits
Stop! Think before you eat that biscuit! Is it in any way fancy? If so, then you are a criminal!
In Post-War London, The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every tea-time and elevenses in the land. Established to “control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits,” it prohibits decadent sweetmeats, such as the Gypsy Cream. But when Cedric Hobson, a junior designer, falls in love and designs a biscuit to “shake confectionery to its very foundations,” his world - and the ministry - are turned upside down.
