I think it is supposed to read "door-set knob', Bill.
Bill Phillips: Ah that would explain a lot Ray
I imagine those are yummy! I like the tin!
Bill Phillips: I expect they are

I never heard of these biscuits ("enjoyed throughout the world"), sorry, but you are watering my mouth!
Bill Phillips: Nor had I Philine. I suspect they are not as famous as they think

I aught to try one, one day..
Bill Phillips: If the shop had been open I might have bought some and could then have saved them for your next visit. Another opportunity gone
Please save some for me, Bill!
Bill Phillips: I didn't buy any....the shop was shut!

Layered with butter, very strong cheddar cheese and some good pickle ...along with a glass of beer. What could be better?
Bill Phillips: As I have no idea what they are like I will assume that they are fit for this purpose comrade and agree
I presume the biscuits are delicious Bill...What a lovely tin!
Bill Phillips: I have no idea Richard, but it is an eyecatching name

You'll have to go back when the shop is open, Bill. We all need to know what they taste like now.
Bill Phillips: You are nearer than I am Pauline. I have never seen these up our way
I wonder if these were made by Stanley More Bill.
Bill Phillips: Are they very salty then ?
Knob is not a great name for a cookie in my opinion.
Bill Phillips: They seem to have got away with it for 135 years Mary

The did a fancy job on the design, I hope the cookie taste as good as the tin looks...
sad too bad the shop was closed...
Bill Phillips: I will buy some if I ever get the chance Lady P.

Their fame has reached as far a Scusville at least; is there a world beyond that? I don't recall having a Dorset Knob before; I will need to rectify that befoe too long.
Bill Phillips: Knobs are much the same the world over I guess Alan
They have stood the test of time then
Bill Phillips: They have indeed Janet, despite a less than appealing name
Mmm they sound quite interesting.
Bill Phillips: Well if they have been making them for 135 years they must have something Brian

Is this before or after = you ate them?
Bill Phillips: The shop was shut Louis and I never got the chance to try them
Like Philine, I've never heard of these biscuits - I thought that a Dorset knob was something else entirely.
Bill Phillips: As most of us probably did Tom

You must try them, Bill
Bill Phillips: If they reach Worcestershire I will Lisl

Please say Chris: "Dorset knobs are typically eaten with cheese (for example, Dorset Blue Vinney).[2] Dorset knobs were said by his parlour maid to have been a favourite food of local author Thomas Hardy. As they are so hard, they are also eaten by first soaking them in sweet tea."
Bill Phillips: Dorset Blue is a nice cheese but I don't like sweet tea grin

"A Dorset knob throwing competition is held in the Dorset village of Cattistock every year on the first Sunday in May. The festival also includes such events as a knob and spoon race, knob darts, knob painting and guess the weight of the knob. The record throw of 29.4 metres (96 ft) was set in 2012."
Bill Phillips: The mind boggles Philine
