||Please help me restore my reputation, so I can show my work colleagues that I'm not a fantasist. Growing up in the Midlands in the 50s/60s I am absolutely positive that my mum used to buy - loose from Woolworths in Mansfield, I think - digestive biscuits that had a mild pineapple flavour. I used to love them, but I can't imagine why . Anyone else out there remember them ? Please put me out of my misery. Best wishes - Mary Evans|
|Nicey replies: Mary,
Luckily for you I just had an email from Peter Gilbert who out of the blue said "One biscuit that I can recall from my youth in the mid '50's, was a digestive type of biscuit, I recall it being a little larger than the general digestives then available, but flavoured with and marked out like pineapple. Suited my sweet tooth!"
||Re: biscuit dilemma|
Hello, thank God I found your site, just as I was beginning to give up hope. I am sure someone can help me track down the elusive, but delicious, fruit Shrewsbury biscuit. These biscuits have it all, from a lovely crunch to the health-giving fruit cleverly mixed in. In fact it could probably qualify as one of the 5 portions of fruit & veg we need each day!
Anyhow, the only place I know to get 'em is on board First Great Western trains, and this is getting expensive. So-called "Supermarkets" are no use, although I am also partial to the humble digestive.
Please, please, can anyone help? And it IS my birthday!
