And, unless they are the ones with the chocolate bottoms, they taste unappetizing. They taste completely different than Graham crackers IMHO as Grahams are much sweeter. Might have to do a run by Tanglin Market Place though!

Oh I love McVite's. How I used to dunk them in a nice hot cup of Milo!

I also think that Tesco UK's is just as good, if not better.

Sorry OOT but can't help it.



Note: Thanks for igniting that spark in me, now I'm going to look for McVite's to stock up in the pantry to pair with my Milo :D

I'm guessing most stores selling products from the Philippines (which are everywhere). The packaging should look like this:

If it's blue, it's chocolate-flavored.

what naks said.

Its popular in the Philippines because the mango refrigerator cake became a popular dessert.

Digestive Biscuit just sounds completely unappetizing...

It probably derives from their high fibre content. Oh and they were probably first produced c500 years ago and the name just stuck.
[ponders side-meme of products that don’t really do what their brand name suggests]

I first encountered them in Japan. And y'll know Japan--NOTHING is too weird.

I always thought the Japanese were very acquisitive of the high-points of other cultures.

And, unless they are the ones with the chocolate bottoms, they taste unappetizing

You must be eating the Australian version, the chocolate is a topping, not a ‘bottoming’ ;)

I also think that Tesco UK's is just as good, if not better.

Yep, you can’t go far wrong with just about anything from Tesco. The one’s from M&S are also very good though doubtless more $.

From Wikipedia:
History
‘The graham cracker was originally conceived of as a health food as part of the Graham Diet, a regimen to suppress what he considered unhealthy carnal urges, the source of many maladies according to Graham. Reverend Graham would often lecture on "self-abuse" as masturbation was commonly called at the time.[1] One of his many theories was that one could curb one's sexual appetite by eating bland foods. Another man who held this belief was Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, the inventor of the corn flakes cereal.[2]’

Ok that’s it, I’m going to stick to the McVitie’s thanks :-D

I've actually found them at every Cold Storage I've looked for them in.

I know for sure that I have bought them in Jason's Marketplace and CS on Sixth Avenue. I'm pretty sure I've also bought them at the CS just off Balmoral Road and I might have even bought them at the CS in Funan.

They are the real, standard ones from the US that look like this:
