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 it’s to Custard Creams and Sugar Puffs I turn for comfort. Could be worse I guess.
