I scoured the biscuit aisle of three different supermarkets over the weekend looking for Fox's Sports biscuits.
These biscuits bring back wonderful memories of staying with my grandparents as a child.
In the last supermarket, Asda. I asked a young menial who was stacking the shelves if he had any Sports biscuits, "I'll just go and av a look in back for yer" five minutes later he returned, as he was walking towards me, I noticed he was very well endowed in the trouser department, I could see it bobbing about with each stride. "what were they called again?" he asked. For a few seconds I'd forgotten myself what they were called, when my brain eventually caught up with my eyes I told him. A passer-by who had been listening, told me they haven't sold them in here for years and that I'd find 'em in Erons' if you're not familiar with Heron it's a Northern frozen food shop a bit like Iceland.
So off to Heron I went. Not only did they sell Sports biscuits there, they also sold Arrowroot biscuits 42p I was thrilled. No Lincolns though. I could see the sales assistant at the till looking me up and down through narrow eyes. "The coat is Tom Ford, love and you're right, I don't normally shop here, whilst mentally striking her on the back of the head with a bag of oven chips.
