Club Biscuits

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

# If you like a lotta chocolate on your biscuit join our club #

Need I say more?

Well, actually I will - how did you eat it? I used to bite all the chocolate from all round the outside edges and then munch it. Yum!

    Back in the sixties there was a Club, which had a red wrapper with the Queen of Clubs ( not hearts as mentioned in another post - that is why is was called a Club biscuit ) The club Golf was covered in plain chocolate, green / white wrapper with a picture of a golf ball. This was followed by a Domino - milk chocolate with raisins through the biscuit- Purple and white wrapper. Obviously the marketing department of the day decided to consolidate to Club Milk, Club Plain and Club Fruit-They added Club Orange ( with orange chocolate ) I think. Tool away all the interest - God save us from marketing departments. Ian Marshall 10 March 2011

    Who else remembers the TV advert from the early 80s (or thereabouts), in which the Beach Boys song 'Barbara Ann' was performed, except they were singing "Bar-bar-bar, bar-bar-a-Club"? I seem to vaguely recall it being set in a courtroom, but I could be wrong about that.

    Anyone remember the ones with raisins in? I think they had a purple wrapper. I haven't had a Club in years, mostly because the chocolate got thinner & thinner.

    The ad "if you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit join our club" definatly exists. I wrote it 29 years ago. i was 12 and my fee was a teddy bear. They run competitions and rip off kids for the adverts. Nice family image! anne x

      Funny that, the advert ran from about 1974, that's 44 years ago, and you are 46 years old, so you wrote it when you were 2? Oh dear are you that desperate for attention? Anyway it was written by Cook and Greenaway, 2 famous song writers.

    I loved these when I was little. :) Mum always used to buy them, and I remember rubbing the foil until the pattern on the chocolate bar came through onto the foil. The biscuits themselves were really tasty, too...

    In the words of the old birds eye advert "they might look same but they dont taste same"!. the new clubs aren't a patch on the old ones.

    Much as I liked Club Biscuits, the real genius lay in the minuture Club Bites. Do they still exist?

    Do Club Biscuits no longer exist? I didn't know they'd been discontinued. Bummer :-( I used to have one in my packed lunch quite regularly - they were great
