A controversial list ranking popular Arnott’s biscuits from best to worst has divided social media, with Milk Arrowroot taking out the top spot.
Father Bruno Bouchet, a managing director from Sydney, ranked 12 iconic biscuits – labelling Kingston as ‘royalty’ and Butternut Snap as ‘cat vomit’.
Many were baffled by the ranking, with many taking particular issue with his placement of Scotch Fingers, Monte Carlo and Orange Slice.
The self-proclaimed ‘List King’ – who sparked outrage over his rankings of chocolate bars and ice creams – controversially crowned Milk Arrowhead in the ‘God Tier’.
‘The Milk Arrowroot reigns supreme,’ Bruno told Daily Mail Australia.

‘It’s delicious simplicity shows us that the perfect biscuit doesn’t rely on any bells and whistles of creamy centres and gimmicky shapes.
‘Anyone that’s ever smeared butter on a milk arrowroot biscuit knows very well that it’s one of the greatest culinary treats they’ll ever experience.’
In the ‘Royalty Tier’, the former Kyle & Jackie O radio show producer named Kingston, Nice and Choc Ripple.
‘The Kingston puts every other cream-filled biscuit to shame. There’s never been an Oreo cookie that’s ever gotten near the deliciousness of the Kingston. Australia – 1, United States – 0,’ Bruno said.
In the centre of his rankings, Bruno put Scotch Fingers, Orange Slice and Milk Coffee in the ‘Adam Sandler tier’, or what he describes as ‘take it or leave it’ category.
‘There are a number of fun experiences that come with the Scotch Finger. The best feature being the satisfying snap when you break the biscuit in two,’ he explained.
‘Everyone loves using your index finger to pick up the post-snap crumbs off your lap. The biscuit itself is alright, but it’s more fun than tasty.’
Delta Cream, Teddy Bear and Monte Carlo were shamed in the ‘Pleb Tier’.
‘Arnott’s created the Delta Cream in the 50s to take on the Oreo. They failed. The Delta Cream will always be a reminder that a great company like Arnott’s should stick to what it does best instead of trying to imitate a competitor,’ Bruno said.

Bruno said he found the ‘cream taste’ from the Monte Carlo ‘gets lost’ and ‘you’re essentially left with an unsatisfying sweet coconut-tasting biscuit’.
‘The Monte Carlo is the most overrated biscuit in the entire Arnott’s range. Sure, the vanilla and jam cream layer is delicious, but they’re two biscuits, its sandwiched between are too thick and crumbly,’ he said.
‘I could easily make the Monte Carlo the greatest biscuit on earth by recreating it as a circular biscuit with the outer layers the same thickness and taste as the Orange Slice.’
Shortbread Cream and Butternut Snap found its place on the bottom of the barrel of the ‘Cat Vomit Tier’.
‘The Shortbread Cream is always the last remaining biscuit in every single Australian office lunchroom,’ Bruno said.
‘It’s crumbly, unsatisfying and tastes like you’re eating clumped-up sand. Arnott’s should abolish the Shortbread Cream immediately and send all remaining stock over to a country that we’re in conflict with.’

Bruno shared his ‘definitive’ list on Instagram, saying: ‘The 100 per cent accurate Arnott’s assorted power rankings. Don’t bother commenting, this isn’t up for discussion.’
While some agreed with his ranking of biscuits, most people took issue with the low positioning of Scotch Finger, Butternut Snap and Monte Carlo.
‘This list is un-Australian. Sif [sic] a Scotch Finger is Adam Sandler,’ one said, while another added: ‘This is clearly meant to be controversial. Bulls*** as.’
‘Butternut snap deserves more than that,’ one person said, while added: ‘How dare you disrespect Monte Carlos like that.’
Many described the list as an ‘absolute catastrophe’ while some said Bruno ‘nailed’ his rankings.
But not everyone agreed with his decision to name Milk Arrowroot as the number one biscuit, with some saying: ‘Get stuffed! As if! Arrowroot isn’t even a biscuit.’
Another said: ‘Surely your most controversial yet. Milk Arrowroots are only good for old people without teeth to dunk in tea. My head just exploded.’
Others didn’t agree with his ranking of Orange Slice, with one saying: ‘No one likes orange slice. NO ONE.’
Another person asked Bruno: ‘Who hurt you?’, while one said: ‘You’ve lost the plot you animal.’
