The first of my own reasons to be cheerful is the finest of all British biscuits, the bourbon. It is a rectangular sandwich biscuit with a chocolate fondant filling. Originally made by the company who baked the Queen and Prince Philip's wedding cake, Peek Freans back in 1910. The Royal connections don't end there, it was named after the French royal family's house of Bourbon.
I personally like a good old bourbon plus they aren't too bad for you, containing no hydrogenated fats and have less fat than a Digestive, so ner.
They are pretty cheap to buy, but if you want to make your own, here's a link to a recipe.
