      HSame here, Abbey Crunch were one of the best non-chocolate coated biscuits, apart from maybe plain Hobnobs.

        Oh most definitely, Richard. I'm tending to think we might be able to get close to Abbey Crunch with Ikea's oat biscuits .. they are good! I've lived outside the UK for a good many years now; and am disappointed when I've returned and tried the 'old favourites' ...I used to adore Rich Tea .. they are nothing like as good as they used to be; nor are Bourbons or chocolate digestives .. quite depressing. Same goes for Cadbury's chocolate since they got taken over ... Then I heard that Callard & Bowser butterscotch no longer exists either ... and as for Rowntrees ....I LOVED Rowntrees ... so many lovely memories ...

            Peak Freans biscuits. The factory in Bermondsey closed some time in the 1980s and the brand disappeared from shops in Britain but the factory in Canada is still making them.

              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.

                    Biscuits you don't see now.

                    OMG .. Sports biscuits were so moorish !!

                    Ours didn't have chocolate on as previously mentioned by some one ..

                    Had a subtle taste like no other .... probably Heroine or something [emoji4]

                    Wish I could find some !!

                      I haven't thought of those sports biscuits in at least 2 decades but we used to have them regularly in the 1980s.

                        As I said , they had a very distinctive taste ..

                            Spooks! Thank you!! I was trying to recall the name of those incredible vibrantly coloured biscuits I adored as a child in the 1970s which I can almost taste now when I think of them. 😋 No restrictions on food additives- those were the days!!

                              I was thinking that although it is technically chocolate, the biscuit bar Blue Riband has always been lowkey in recent years, with regards to advertising, being on supermarket shelves and all that - I have always assumed that Time Out was Cadbury's answer to that.
                              Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!
