If you are British, or otherwise were educated in the British Empire, you would probably know that teevee was invented by Scotsman John Logie Baird in 1925. If you are American, or educated in the US Empire, you would instead know that teevee was invented by Philo Farnsworth in 1928. (In a strange way both are right, unless you were educated in the Soviet Empire, in which case you would instead know that teevee was invented by Hungarian Kálmán Tihanyi.)

I should probably admit something, given that I’m on I think the third variety of TeeVee snacks. I actually do not own a TeeVee. Yes, I’m sure that completes the picture you have of me; a stereotypical inner-west-living, bicycle-riding, organic-veg-buying loon who spends the evenings playing ludo by candlelight. Well, actually, you’d be dead right, I do do all of those things, and I am aware that it might put a degree of bias into my review of Arnott’s TeeVee snacks. However, you can rest assured, dear reader, that I settled down in front of some of my favourite YouTube clips to sample the Malt Stick variety, in order to test these biscuits in the manner for which they were designed.

And they work really quite well. Nice and crunchy, but not too much so that you can’t hear the sound. A good size for chomping on, with the shape being easy to pick up and eat without needing to take your eyes away from the screen. And quite tasty, but without being too challenging or unusual such that your concentration might be drawn away from the entertainment.

Not bad at all. I’m going to give these a six out of ten.
