Bulk Biscuits of bygone years.

Bulk Biscuits of Bygone Years.
To continue with the grocers receiving goods in bulk reminded me of when biscuit manufactures like Huntley and Palmers of Reading supplied the shops with biscuits in tins like the one above. As a result it was a delight for little boys like myself, to go into Budgen’s or The International and be able to buy a bag full of broken biscuits for just a few pennies. It was a usual mixture of cream filled, chocolate digestive, or just plain digestive.
