Of Biscuits and other treats

Abbey biscuits were the biscuit of choice in my childhood though not necessarily my choice, it has to be said. The Abbey biscuit was a very sweet oatmeal biscuit with a distinct crunch, indeed it later became known as Abbey Crunch.

In rare moments of munificence my mother would splash out on a packet Custard Creams.

Even more rare was the appearance of something like Sugar Puffs Corn Flakes or Shredded Wheat being the breakfast staple.

So now, with the financial crisis engulfing us and the frost nipping my toes its to Custard Creams and Sugar Puffs I turn for comfort. Could be worse I guess.
