Do you think I can sue the makers of Dona Jimena De Espana biscuits under the Trade Descriptions Act?

"Assorted Spanish Delights, individually wrapped," reads the blurb on the fancy box.

Now, there is an assortment things which may well be Spanish, and they are indeed individually wrapped. But "delights"? I think not. Unless you take delight in eating asbestos dust, belly-button fluff and talcum powder. The office has been echoing with the sound of free-loading colleagues hacking up hairballs.
