Sitting down with a nice cup of tea and a few dunkable biscuits is one of life's greatest pleasures. The problem is you need somewhere to shove your biccies prior to dunking. And who can be bothered with all that plate palaver?
We certainly can't. Because as well as the extra washing up, it's a bit fiddly holding a mug and a plate simultaneously. Well okay, it's not that taxing but the sophisticated layabout needs all the help he/she can get. And transporting custard creams in your gob is never a good idea, as it's impossible to resist scoffing them before you sit down.
Biscuits not included
Enter the forehead-slappingly ingenious Dunk Mug. Loaded with why-didn't-I-think-of-that factor, this smart ceramic mug features a special compartment in which to store your beloved biccies. Clever, eh!
Biccies on the go
Just think, with a couple of Dunk Mugs in the cupboard you'll never have to run back to the kitchen to fetch your digestives, or crack out the carpet cleaner when your attempts to balance biscuits on the rim of your mug end in tea-spattered failure.
The Dunk Mug is also ideal for tea and biccies in bed, because carrying two things at once up the stairs is always a tricky proposition first thing in the morning or last thing at night.
Holds 3 digestives
This dual-purpose triumph of design has been a huge hit here at Firebox HQ. In fact it has completely reawakened our love for tea and, in particular, biscuits. We can't stop talking about the crumbly little blighters; the debate is raging as to what those little holes in Rich Teas are for, and we still can't decide whether Nice biscuits are pronounced 'nice' or 'niece'. Answers on a postcard to the usual address. Oh, and put the kettle on while you're at it.

Love it, all well and good, but it is nearly always out of stock because it is partially hand made. Is there not a competitor mug similar in design at a lower price? Aisha, London - 10th June 2009
Firebox says: We're certainly on the look out!
"product not available" ? :( I was going to get one a few days ago, but decided not to. I just changed my mind, and to my horror, no matter how much I search, i couldn't find the king of mugs! ...i had to search on google. So um. . Where is it? , Err..jupi- I Mean Germany.*coughs Nervously* - 12th December 2008
Firebox says: Sorry! We unfortunately are no longer stocking these. Keep an eye out in the future to see if we re-sell these!
Thank the Lord the lefty mug was created. I had been looking all over the internet for months until someone to do it, and guess who it was... the awesome firebox, typical !

Can't we have a left handed version? If I used this I'd end up dropping my biscuits all over the floor. Simon, London - 5th February 2008
Firebox says: Simon, we do sell the left handed version...
Since my girlfriend got me one of these mugs I have been the envy of everyone in the office. Perfect for your 11 o'clock tea break, although beware of chocolate biscuits as they tend to leave nasty skid marks if not stacked correctly. Tom, London - 23rd August 2007
