Gipsy creams found on East End Market stallMonday 18 Apr 2005 Reporter: Nicey
This startling picture of an empty pack of Gipsy Creams was taken today at NCOTAASD HQ, and proves that McVities are still manufacturing the much sought after biscuit. The 'Best Before' date of 19 Nov 2005 is clearly visible and proves that the United Biscuits plant in Glasgow is still producing Countdown host Richard Whitely's favourite tea time treat.
Over the last year we have received a handful of sporadic sightings including one in a hospital day centre in Plymouth, but this is the first concrete evidence. The pack was secured by NCOTAASD reader, Jez Owen from Leather Lane market, London EC1, off the stall nearest to the Holborn end. Jez also popped in two which he saved back for us, and I can confirm that they were very nice actually.
Hopefully more sightings will now come to fore, and the distribution of this rare biscuit can be pieced together.
