Biscuits of antiquity #1: Victoria

A short series highlighting the biscuits we used to enjoy at Christmastime.

Luxury selection! If I remember correctly, Victoria biscuits were double-layered in red-coloured trays.

I think that the oval biscuit in the lower centre was dark-chocolate-covered shortbread. I do remember making myself ill every year by eating all of the dark-chocolate ones.

 Faded Stewarts price label on flank. Shame that the price is no longer visible, but these were a very expensive treat. Sometimes we were able to buy them at slightly reduced prices in the January sales, but I don't remember there ever being many tins of them left on the shelves by that time, unlike the ubiquitous selection boxes.
