Jam then Cream (An ongoing argument about scones)

With most people now agreeing that Jaffa Cakes are cakes, toilet rolls go ripped edge to the front and Two Towers is the best Hobbit movie, we need something new and trendy to argue about. It seems the Rage De Jour is now 

“Should Scones Have Jam Then Cream or Cream Then Jam?”

We’ve already decided how to pronounce scone, now we get to finalise the matter of scones before there’s some sort of Tea Room Civil War or something.

Question One – What type of scone is the best type of scone?

Note – For some reason people took issue with the completely intentional omission of ‘cheese scone’. These people are dangerous and if you go near them they will bite you.

Result – Fruit Scone.

Question Two – Butter or No Butter?

Result – Can’t beat a bit o’ butter.

Question Three – Jam or Jam then Cream or Cream then Jam or Cream?

Result – Jam then Cream.

And finally, a question of crumbs…

I’m calling shenanigans on that last result on account of having never met anyone who doesn’t become a crumby mess when eating a scone.

So, we’ve learned something. What have we learned? We’ve learned that people on the internet never make the wrong choice.

    How did I miss this entire debate?! Obviously it’s fruit scones, no butter and cream then jam!
