Nice (pronounced niece) are plain coconut flavoured biscuits, often served with a cup of tea. They are among the oldest British biscuits being served as early as the late 1800s. They’re small, easy to snack on and quite tasty considering their plain looks. Nice biscuits are not a trademarked brand and can be found with the same name using the Tesco, Morrison’s, Aldi, Lidl, Sainsbury’s, Asda, M&S and Waitrose.
