My tea and coffee cup collection is a set of randomly purchased items, with the Dunkonomics Mug to be anything but boring. Informative and fun, it takes tea time routine to the level of science. I love the descriptions on the mu that read:
"Dunkonomic – the science of dunking.
Dunk – veb (used with object) To dip (a biscuit, cake, etc.) into tea, coffee, milk, or the like, before eating."
And then follow the fun instructions on how to perfect the process of dunking:
"1. Choose the right mug. Selecting the correct mug is imperative. Take into consideration maximum volume and brim diameter. Our bofffins have spent months tweaking and optimizing the mug.
2. Brew your drink of choice. Tea or coffee are standard and both will infuse nicely with the flavor of your biscuit. Hot chocolate and malted milk drinks are also acceptable choices. Avoid fruit teas when dunking.
3. Pick your (first) biscuit. A plate of options to choose from is a good idea.
4. Ready, Steady, Dunk! See Figure 1."
The rest of the mug serves as a dunkonomics guide and is decorated with visuals of different type of dunkable biscuits, waffles, etc. and information on their corresponding crunch factor, anti-dissovability, features, and final dunk rating. The suggested dunkers are: Bourbon biscuit, Rich Tea Finger biscuit, Nice biscuit, Choc Digestive biscuit, Pink Wafer, Malted Milk biscuit, Party Ring biscuit and Jammy Wheel biscuit.
On the back of the box, fun packaging decorated with the same visuals and descriptions as the mug, however, there is a final piece of advice, which according to the tone of the message is to be takes seriously and sounds like a final warning:
"Dunking any old biscuit can be a huge mistake – this is a science and as such must be taken seriously. After all, there’s nothing worse than ‘flunking your dunk’ (when your biscuit breaks off mid-dunk!)"
