“For every Rich Tea biscuit, there are currently thousands of tea biscuits living in poverty”

"Rich tea” biscuits aren’t necessarily wealthy, but there are jokes. “For every rich tea biscuit, there are a thousand tea biscuits living in squalour. Bloody Tories” was posted on Twitter by Nick Harvey on October 22, 2015. Harvey posted the joke again on Twitter on October 3, 2016, and also on Twitter on January 30, 2019.

“Please remember, for every Rich Tea biscuit, there are currently thousands of tea biscuits living in poverty....” was posted on Twitter by The Dad Joke Man on October 3, 2018.


Wikipedia: Rich tea
Rich tea is a type of sweet biscuit; the ingredients generally include wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oil and malt extract. Originally called Tea Biscuits, they were developed in the 17th century in Yorkshire, England for the upper classes as a light snack between full-course meals. One of the best-selling biscuits in the British Isles, the biscuit is also popular in Malta and Cyprus. The plain flavour and consistency of rich tea makes them particularly suitable for dunking in tea and coffee.

McVitie’s is the best-known manufacturer in the UK; however, all major supermarkets now sell an own-brand version of the biscuits. A Cadbury’s variant of the rich tea is coated in chocolate, similar to a digestive; this is less suitable for dunking.
