    I read recently that the demise of the' Lincoln' biscuit was due to the flooding of a United Biscuits factory in 2005 or thereabouts. As production ground to a halt, the big supermarkets thought popularity of the Lincoln had waned, so did not order any more. They can still be bought in Irish supermarkets, however. There is a Facebook campaign to bring the biscuit back.
    I loved Lincoln biscuits dunked in tea, they had little "pimples" on the top.

    Playbox biscuits, they had coloured pictures on them made of hard icing just like Fox's Party Rings are now. Cafe Iced were similar with 3 stripes of that same icing in pink, yellow and brown. There was also another one with plain brown icing on but can't remember the name.

          Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

              Re: Biscuits you don't see now.

              I remember 'Sport' biscuits (Not the Fox's 'Sports'), but I can't remember who made them. They were in a yellow wrapper with SPORT in blue writing. Each wrapper in the pack used to have a different ball on: a rugby ball, a football, a cricket ball etc. The biscuit was basically digestive covered in chocolate, with a criss-cross pattern on the top.

              I also remember Romany Creams (By Fox's I think). They were gorgeous and abundant in the early to mid-nineties, but seemed to disappear overnight.

                  It may have been the same biscuit, but the wrappers were very different. Did they change the wrappers in the 90's at all?

                      Re: Biscuits you don't see now.

                      My favourites were Romany biscuits by Huntley & Palmer (not to be confused with Romany Creams which are by a diffent company). They were around in the mid-late 80s then disappeared. Utterly gorgeous. The closest you can get to them now is either Choc Cream Oreos or Fox's Choc Fudge Creams, but neither are exactly like them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZSHdQdfOB4

                              I'm sure I saw those biscuits at Cost-Cutter some time recently.
                              Who cared about rules when you were young?

                                When was the last time you encountered any brand of biscuit that contained animal fat?
