A new collection of luxury biscuit tins have seemingly re-written the Biblical account of Creation by appearing to feature same-sex couples in the Garden of Eden.

Fortnum & Mason has unveiled an 'Adam and Steve Circular Biscuit Box' which features two men holding an apple and standing by the Serpent.

The design seems to contradict Genesis Chapter 2 which explains how God said it was not good for Adam to be alone, so he created a helper suitable for him - Eve.


Two alternative designs for the tins, which contained gingerbread biscuits, feature two women - named Eve and Niamh - and Adam and Eve.

Fortnum & Mason, which operates a flagship store on Piccadilly in central London, marketed the tins for Valentine's Day next month.

The products were described by Fortnum & Mason as "baked to perfection to make a most memorable and, indeed, delicious gift for your loved one this Valentine's Day."

The sweet treat range appears to take inspiration from the Christian slogan "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve".

Premier has approached Fortnum & Mason for a comment.
