Rondello Biscuits

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

Rondello biscuits were simila tasting to Malted Milks, and their melt-in-your-mouth quality made them really popular among grandparents.

    I’m so glad other people remember these as I thought I might have imagined them. Ate them all the time when I was 7 in Jersey. It would be a joyful day were these to be made again.

    The name of them just came to me out of the blue, so googled it. I remember my Mum buying some and stood me and my brother together in front of her as if on parade and told us in no uncertain terms that they were HERS and only hers. They belonged only to her and did we understand? She said if either one of us touched them she’d cut both our tails off

    I absolutely loved 'Rondello Biscuits' ! I remember one day my mum had given me the money to pay for my school-dinner. On the way to school I popped into the local shop (probably to buy a comic/sweeties etc) when I saw a box of 'Rondellos' on the shelf - all thoughts of school-dinner were instantly dismissed as I handed the money over !. I was in 'Rondello-Heaven' as I ate the whole packet/box, one after the other, on my way to school !. Normally at home, mum would 'ration' biscuits, it was always 'Never more than two' - eating an entire box/packet of 'Rondellos' in the one go has been one of my secret shames for years now !!

    The biscuit did not have a name and McVities ran a competition to name it. My grandfather came up with the name Rondello and won the competition. I think all he got was the biscuits in a plain white box as the price!

    I was listening to the radio today and they were discussing biscuits which made me think of Rondellos and how they seemed to suddenly vanish years ago... Why? So I thought I'd Google em and found this thread. It wasn't just me then - as a young kid I'd save up my pocket money to afford them. They were quite expensive as I recall but I couldn't get enough of them...

      Hi Zipadee I just had a Sainsbury's gluten free salted toffee shortbread and the taste and texture - except for the toffee bits -instantly reminded me of Rondellos. What a shame they shelved them :-) no pun intended. You should try them!

    I was just thinking about them, and put the name in the search engine. No one I know has heard of them. So I did not make it up. Also do you remember Aztec bars, again no one has heard of them. Bring them back bring them all back, ....... Linda

    Does anyone know if they have started making them yet. Perhaps we should start a petition to McVities to ask them to start making them again. I thought I had gone mad as no one I grew up with remembered them. How is beyond be they were so yummy!!!!!!
