A new poll reveals that chocolate digestives are Britons' favorites when it comes to dunking biscuits.
According to a survey headed by internet market research website onepoll.com, the McVitie's Digestive, created in 1839 by two Scottish doctors to help digestion, were most favored with the age old tradition of dunking.
3,000 dunkers placed Rich Tea, also made by McVitie's, to the second spot followed by plain HobNobs, plain digestives and chocolate bourbons.
Wrapping up the top 10 were chocolate HobNobs, chocolate chip cookies, custard creams, shortbreads and ginger nuts.
"Dunking a biscuit into a hot cup of tea is such a time-honored tradition and the chocolate digestive wins hands down," the Daily Express quoted a rep for the website as saying.
"The combination of the melted chocolate coating and soggy underside makes it the ultimate tea companion," the rep added.
