||Like many of your readers, I have been scouring the supermarket shelves for the long forgotten (but much loved) Royal Scot biscuits of my childhood. Alas, without success. Never to be savoured again, my mother's home made concoction of two Royal Scot biscuits sandwiched together with strawberry jam, white icing on the top and finished with a jelly sweet from some dolly mixtures on the top.|
Or so I thought. On a conference trip a couple of years ago, I was surprised to see some Royal Scot biscuits amongst some custard creams, bourbons (61mm!), etc. being supplied at tea-break. It was obvious that they had formed part of some prepacked selection of biscuits. My unanswered question was - were Royal Scot biscuits still being produced or had some hotelier found a very old pack?
|Nicey replies: Well if you look at our Missing In Action section you'll see that the Royal Scot has indeed been out of action for a long long time. I maybe wrong, but I suspect that you had a Round Shortie which in your excitement mistook for the Royal Scot. Of course the Royal Scot was a a good bit thinner a typical round shortie. United Biscuits who made the Royal Scot do make lots of selections like Rover, which find their way into just this sort of situation. The tracking down of the white cream filled Bourbon from civil service meetings to a Rover selection confirms this.|
