“It’s not like I don’t like them, it’s just that they’re my least favourite biscuit in the tray,” he said.

“And I know I’m not the only one who doesn’t really like Orange Creams. They’re always the last ones left.”

Cameron Pilliga is referring the orange cream variety biscuit found in an Arnott’s Assorted Creams, a staple of any respectable tea room in the country.

Though it’s far more popular than it’s peasant cousin, Family Assorted, the collection of creme biscuits has been the centre of a fierce and spirited debate between biscuit enthusiasts like Pilliga.

But one thing that the 29-year-old can agree on is that he often leaves the Orange Creams for somebody else to enjoy.

“I feel a bit piggish if I hoover up a whole cream tray in one sitting,” said the sweet-toothed Sagittarius.

“So leaving the grotty orange creams to go stale and soft in the tray is a good way of making it seem like you haven’t had as many biscuits as you have,”

“Then sometimes, especially after an episode of Scrubs with a sad ending, I’ll find myself back at the tray pushing those softening stale biscuits down my throat with a glass of cold milk.”

Pilliga refused to comment further on how he became to be known as a local biscuit enthusiast but said it should be ‘pretty self-explanatory’.
