I LOVE the Packaging, the shape of the biscs- cats and owls and THE TASTE - really homemade and scrumdiddleumptious.... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....yum
Naturally I've had to google them when I got home from Hols and it seems according to Abel and Cole-
"In the 1930s, the Spencer family set up a little bakery at the back of the Green Dragon tea shop in Ashbourne, Derbyshire. The family became known for their own special recipe for gingerbread – one that rivalled Grasmere's famous recipe. They were also well-known for sticking to British ingredients, not using additives and for their fine biscuit-making craftsmanship. After seven decades of baking, the Spencers were looking for someone to take over the business and carry on their hand-baking, ingredient-sourcing traditions. In 2006, they met their match. Paul Darvil of Bath's The Fine Cheese Co. took over but kept things much the same – all apart from the name, which he changed from the old Ashbourne Biscuit Company to Artisan Biscuits. "
We've had many a long Full English Breakfast (with a cream cake chaser) at Spencers - Fab Building with a real smell of the 30's when you go upstairs to the loo...
Anyway my point - If you're stuck for Christmas Ideas for me - the V&A shop sell these in a TIN (I love Tins- esp with biscs in - I can then reuse it for 'bits') Here's the link -
