GUEST,Janet BS: Playbox Buiscuits (24) BS: Playbox Biscuits 05 Oct 14


When I was a child living in England in the late 50's & early 60's, my father used to bring home these wonderful biscuits (seemed to be mostly for children) to enjoy. I believe they were called "Playbox Biscuits" and they had different colours with icing; pink, yellow, light blue and maybe a few other colours. I do not know what company made them. We moved to Canada and then later to USA. Then in the 1970's I returned to England with my parents for a nice holiday and again in the 80's.
I believe I did find them in a grocery store in the 70's in London, but I think as the years went by and I was visiting in England in later years I could no longer find them. I asked at various stores, including Selfridges and different food stores. No one seemed to have them anymore.

I was wondering if anyone remembers them and if they are actually still being made? I also seem to recall that they were of different shapes of animals or some other shapes. But it was a biscuit and each one had light colour icing on the top.
