Abbey Crunch

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

I absolutely adored Abbey Crunch biscuits. For years these were my one and only biscuit, then all of a sudden they just disappeared. I would easily eat a whole packet, whilst dunking them in a big mug of tea... heaven!

    Yes my absolute favourite, I have discovered that Ikea Kafferep Oat biscuits are very similar ;-)

    Sad day indeedy, when Abbey Crunch went n' disappeared :'( I've tried all kinds of "similar" biscuits over the past (many) years, and none have come close ...... until now ;-) While on holiday, I'd nipped into a discount store and spotted some Hill Oaties. Unless I'm mistaken .... they tasted just about, almost exactly, if not precisely like Abbey Crunch. Maybe a percentage or two off .... but pretty, pretty close as makes no difference. Finally found them again in a Yum-Yum shop today, at 3 packs for a quid. Baaagain. Various discount stores sell Hill (not Hills) biscuits, so it's a bit hit n' miss whether they have the Oaties in, but worth the hunt in my opinion.

    I used to love these biscuits as a kid and even my pet budgie liked them. C'mon McVities, bring them back.

    I used to love those biscuits. Nectar of the gods with a cup of tea. I wonder why these companies discontinue such legendary biscuits but still make the rubbish ones, like 'Nice' biscuits (rubbish choice of name! ) Bring back Abbey Crunch.

    Abbey crunch were AMAZING! My fave biccy along with Gypsey Creams. I last saw them in 2005 in a Spar shop in Scotland. They were a week off their sell by date - and I bought the lot. McVities made them - they were like a smaller and soother version of Hob-Nobs. Oaty and syrupy. Oh I want one....

    They looked a bit like ginger biscuits but were sort of buttery with a crispy-crunch. Fantastic dunked !
