Now way back in the 1970’s I used to be a very young assistant manager in a big supermarket and one day I went into the warehouse and saw the equivalent of an artic lorry of Club biscuits, all the flavours just laying on pallettes, so many I knew it was a mistake. I went to my General Manager, who informed me it was no mistake, I later found out he had his whole house furnished plus a trip to the US on that order.
From that day on, I began to dislike the stuff. However, thank goodness the customers loved it, because it took just over a year, but it all went….. just.
Jacobs is part of the United Biscuit brand, and the chocolates came in a sleeve counting six chocolates if I recall correctly.
The flavours were of course the great milk chocolate flavour, and I enjoyed orange, mint and I think there was even a blackberry one too.
Do you remember the great jingle?
“If you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit join our club,
If you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit join our club,
If you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit join our club.
Jacob’s Club — have you ever seen more chocolate on a biscuit?
If you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit join our club”
