The experiment by WIRED tested 10 types of biscuit, ranging from the humble Party Ring through to the posher end of the scale with the Fortnum & Mason Pistachio and Clotted Cream. Using robots, the biscuits were dunked in tea and held there for 15 seconds before being weighed on digital scales to see how much liquid they biscuit absorbed. 

The simple McVitie's Rich Tea biscuit has come out tops with an overall score of 9/10, closely followed by a McVitie's Digestive. 

The judges said of the winner: "The Rich Tea impressed us all. Its compact structure means it can hold its shape a bit easier than the looser, oatier biscuits."

Do you agree? What's your favourite biscuit that you like to dunk?
