“Triscuit and biscuit imply the existence of a monoscuit”

"Biscuit” and “Triscuit” exist, but there is no “uniscuit” (or “monoscuit"). “Quadscuit” (or “Quadriscuit") has been suggested to follow Triscuit.

“> >Biscuit??? > Triscuit?? Quadriscuit!” was posted on the newsgroup rec.humor.oracle.d on May 30, 1999. “Monoscuit” was posted on the newsgroup alt.fan.cecil-adams on September 5, 2001. “no uniscuit or quadscuit?” was posted on the newsgroup rec.sport.pro-wrestling on November 21, 2008.

“Shouldn’t the Triscuit be an ordinary biscuit only bigger? Like 150% bigger? And what of the uniscuit? Is it simply lost to the ages?” was posted on Twitter by David Jayne on December 10, 2008. “if theres biscuits and triscuits, shouldnt there be uniscuits? did the developers get excited and skip a step?” was posted on Twitter by Jordan Vance on April 12, 2009. “My son Hayden asks: if there’s a biscuit and a triscuit, why not a uniscuit or a quadscuit?” was posted on Twitter by Christina BakerKline on August 14, 2009. “Eating Triscuit snacks.

Sextiscuit??” was posted on Twitter by Blake Patterson on December 24, 2009. “Uniscuit, Biscuit, Triscuit, Quadscuit? #foodevolution” was posted on Twitter by Charles Burns on June 14, 2010.

Wikipedia: Biscuit
A biscuit is a flour-based baked and shaped food product. In most countries biscuits are typically hard, flat, and unleavened. They are usually sweet and may be made with sugar, chocolate, icing, jam, ginger, or cinnamon. They can also be savoury, similar to crackers. Biscuit may also refer to hard flour-based baked animal feed, as with dog biscuit.

In most of North America, nearly all hard sweet biscuits are called “cookies”, while the term “biscuit” is used for a soft, leavened quick bread similar to a scone - see biscuit (bread).

Wikipedia: Triscuit
Triscuit is a brand name of snack crackers, which take the form of square baked whole wheat wafers. They were invented in 1900, a patent was granted in 1902, and the Shredded Wheat Company in Niagara Falls, New York, began production the next year.

Did some research. Biscuit comes from the French for “twice cooked” which means any bread is a uniscuit.  Enjoy one today.

I bet there is a factory where Monoscuits are combined into pairs (Biscuits) and threes (Triscuits), before being released to the general public. And Monoscuits taste TERRIBLE before they are combined! This is why nobody has ever heard of Monoscuits.

“Biscuit” means “twice cooked” ("biscotti" is the same but in Italian) and “triscuit” means “thrice cooked” so a monoscuit is just… a cookie. https://twitter.com/TenderBeefsteak/status/981206094981804032

Bis(as you guessed) means twice
Cuits comes from a Latin verb meaning “to cook”
So a biscuit is twice cooked.
The word for once would probably be semel, or sem
That means we’d be after semescuits and those sound oddly not edible
