Nicey replies: Tim,

Yours is a recognised condition which is why we have the cheese icon.

Nicey replies: I think this is one of the Fox's Creations range doing a stint for M&S, expect to see it turning up in any number of Christmas selection tins very soon. I think off the top of my head that the chocolate to biscuit ratio on them is up in the 4:1 or even 5:1 area as opposed to say the 3:7 of a McVities Chocolate Digestive. Personally I think that's a bit too much, but they obviously have got you well on side.

McVities Milk Chocolate Digestive Review
Nicey replies: The chocolate is indeed applied to the bottom of the biscuit, but the consensus opinion (we have thrashed this out in the past) is that this then reverses the polarity of the biscuit so that the chocolate side is now the top. This is so blindingly obvious, as everybody eats them chocolate side up and puts them on plates chocolate side up and even photographs them for the pictures on the packet chocolate side up. Hope you sleep better tonight.

Nicey replies: Well Bath Olivers are made under license from Fortts by Jacobs, we presume the chocolate covered ones are too. Two glimmers of hope are the acquisition of Jacobs within the last two weeks by United Biscuits (McVities,Crawfords,KP), which might see some changes the most likely being a focus on Jacob's brands and a move away from generics. Who knows this may benefit the Bath Oliver (my dream scenario is that they fix the Club biscuit back to how it should be while they are at it).

The second strand of hope comes in the form of the recently revived Huntley & Palmers, which really is an attempt to combine the brand name with a range of premium products utilising other manufacturers. H&P at one time owned Bath Olivers and so have a historical association with them. We know the MD of the new H&P has been exploring the idea of adding Chocolate Bath Olivers to his range.

Actually we were in Bath last weekend and took this picture of what we believe to be the ancestral home of the Bath Oliver, which is now a pub in Green Street Bath, but once was a bakery operated by the late Dr Oliver's (inventor), coachman Atkins, to whom he bequeathed the recipe and lots of flour.

Nicey replies: I was going to say 'slice' too but then I didn't. I feel this information is probably of immense importance in helping finally working out phylogeny of such items as flapjack. I'm actually quite excited.
