    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.

    IIRC the ones with a cow on were malted milk flavoured, I don't remember buying any packs but they used to often be in broken biscuit slections.

    Does anyone remember the ginger ones with a grid moulded into them?

    Me & my brother used to call them "plughole biscuits"!

    I have always loved them, but they seem to be generally unpopular.
    But coffee creams ?!?
    Now that was an awesome biscuit, but unlike orange & strawberry, I haven't seen a proper coffee cream for many a year.

    Re: Biscuits you don't see now.

    I wonder if anyone on here will remember these biscuits as no-one that I have asked in real life does! Oval biscuits sandwiched together with cream and an oval window on top with honey flavoured golden brown coloured jam and sugar sprinkles...I remember my Mum buying them in Fine Fare but don't know if it was one of their own brand products. Any ideas?

    I remember a bit of the United ad jingle. "I am the boss, and somethings make me cross, but i'm delighted to eat United,we are all delighted to eat United"
    The reason i remember it was the manager of the football team i played for was always singing it.
