Caramac Digestive

Caramac Digestive

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Similar to chocolate digestive biscuits but these were topped with Caramac. Great for dunking and sucking the melting Caramac

    I remember them being sold loose in Woolworth when I was about 16 (Saturday job there). They were about the size of a fig roll and completely covered in "Caramac" type chocolate. Gorgeous.

    Carawheat indeed. Just made my own by melting some caramac in the microwave and spreading on digestives. Once cool - Voila! Carawheat

    Wow a caramac covered digestive was fantastic just wondering about melting a couple of caramac bars and dipping digestives in them . Simples x

    Yes they did, in the late 70s, but like many of these super nice things, they were never easy to get hold of, and the manufacturer said they didn't sell well and withdrew them. Just like Walkers did with their cheddar cheese crisps.

    Did McVities not produce digestives topped with caramc and sold packed just like the chocolate version?

    Gold bars seem a bit more sickly, maybe too much of a good thing! But I do remember the caramac digestives, don't know if they were called carawheat or not, but sounds familiar and makes sense to me, still remember them though.

    Greatly missed, the best versions of these were indeed Jan's 'Carawheats'. Woolworths sold them in the late 60's/early 70's when they sold 'loose' biscuits. They were so heavy you didn't get many to the pound! The later Breakaways covered in Caramac just didn't taste the same. Don't think they're anything like McVities 'Gold' bars either.

    Wouldn't these be the same flavour as McVites 'Gold' bars which you can get in the shops?
