Do you like biscuits? Of course you do! In that case you will probably have had biscuits originating from “Biscuit Town” – Bermondsey, London. Bermondsey was host to the Peek Freans biscuit factory, inventors of such gems as the Garibaldi, the “Chocolate Table” (the first chocolate covered Digestive) and the Bourbon.

Other, and now discontinued delectables, include the Pearl, the Golden Puff and the Glaxo.

Time for a nice cup of tea and a Marie. Ah, that’s better…
