Fox's Classic Review
Like others, I am a great fan of your biscuit devotional portal who had wondered as to the lacuna confronting lovers of the Fox's Classic.
I enjoyed the Classic, along with many other Fox's creations during a period of biscuit binging of around 1 year or more from 1991-1992. This was during my time at Sheffield University when I would frequently munch through a packet of biscuits whilst losing a game of chess on Tuesday night at the University chess club, Great times!
I started off as a vegetarian, enjoying the multifarious pleasures of the biscuit world, but after converting to veganism, I found that amongst Fox's biscuits, only the original Classic seemed to fit the bill-I say original, because at that time the Classic did not have any cream and was a circular, slightly golden brown, biscuit with a really freshly baked taste. Also, that hint of coconut you mentioned was deliciously apparent. I seem to remember that at the same time a creamy variant was evolving and perhaps in terms of survival of the fittest in the biscuit Universe, the original Classic died out, like a baked Neanderthal, lamented by just a few palaeontologists of the biscuit world. Perhaps one day, during a dig in the Neander valley, vast seams of Fox's Classics will be enearthed in fossilized packs or maybe frozen packs will be dug out from the ice in Siberia, or have gone unnoticed in the stomachs of mammoths?
Along with the Fox's classic I used to love a kind of Co-op wholemeal digestive from my Sheffield days and last year I returned to the city. Imagine my joy when I returned to the co-op in Crookes and found it's packets still evident in their natural environment ! It was like finding a fly trapped in the amber of the Co-op!
I read your section on a couple of Indian biscuits as I am in the sub-continent at the moment. Actually a considerably wider variety of biscuits exist here and I hope on my return to UK (possibly in December if my visa extension is successful). That I can bring back a wider range of these product for your perusal.
I would like to thank you once again for maintaining such a great website.
