Do you dunk or drown? Is dunking an etiquette faux pas?
We’re having a great debate and looking for you to break the tie.

- Recently a poll of 600 adults, discovered that 52% thought it was bad manners.
- You better watch out if you’re ever thinking about dunking a biscuit in an English tea room, because you could well be asked to leave.
- You may even see a sign such as this:
The un-savoury habit of dunking biscuits is strictly prohibited and will result in you being asked to leave the tea rooms.
- Who wants to fish out the dregs at the bottom of your cup after you’ve gone home.
Let’s face it, you can’t not make a mess dunking. If you must dunk, be sure that what you’re dunking is sturdy enough to save itself from drowning.
