Dear Sir/Madam

It is my pleasure to inform you that in our meeting on Saturday 25 November 2000 the Pembroke College Winnie-The-Pooh Society democratically decided that Jaffa Cakes are better then Hob Nobs without chocolate. We have yet to test the mighty Jaffa Cake against Hob Nobs with Chocolate though.

We would like to point out a slight flaw in the Jaffa Cake though. Although the succulent orange centre and the chocolate covering make the Jaffa Cake an irresistible snack; we would like to point out the problems with its "dunkability". As far as we are aware, there is no way of dunking a Jaffa Cake in tea without the chocolate washing off and the cake becoming overly soggy. Perhaps we could suggest that you could design an extra special Jaffa Cake with all the original qualities and the ability to be dunked.

In addition, we would also like to ask you to answer a query that came up in our meeting on 4 March 2000. We are curious to know whether the mini Jaffa Cakes you produce grow into full size Jaffa Cakes when you plant them in the Garden. It was suggested that we should plant some and find out, but we felt it too risky for the Jaffa Cakes.

As I am sure you will agree, information such as this must be highly important in the production of your biscuits. We would therefore like to invite you to attend one of our Elevenses meetings (held every Saturday of Full Term) to discuss it further.

Yours faithfully

Owen Barritt
Foreign Secretary
