It was in the early 70's (mid 70's). A chocolate bar/wafer kind of shortbread consistencey (flaky) covered in Chocolate. The package was purple, gold, white. Each package had about 6 square size cookies/shortbread covered with chocolate. Back then it was about .25 cents ??? I was born in 1959 - so remember buying it at the grocery store with my mom...

Those were so good! They were made by Cadbury and you can find similar biscuits but not the same size texture....

During my summers as a child in Ontario, Canada, my grandmother would always buy these Cadbury 'cookies' for me from Cleve's Hi-Way Market in Tobermory. At the time in Canada, one side of the box would be in English and the other side printed in French. This was the same for all products like cookies or boxes of cereal. I remember the French side saying 'Biscuit' instead of cookie. The cookies were long and rectangular. Two flat 'biscuits' with chocolate in the middle between them and then covered in Cadbury chocolate. They also made these with orange cream in the middle, two, so you had a choice. If it got warm the cookies would kind of melt together in the white cardboard box. I remember the boxes being covered in a white wrapper with the familiar Cabury logo in dark violet blue with gold letters. They were always imported from England in those days and I've yet to find them since. Cadbury makes Fingers now which are long thin cookies covered in their chocolate and they taste similar but not nearly as good. I went to a World Market store in Ann Arbor, Michigan today and found the Cadbury Fingers, but also Cadbury Crunchie cookies and Cadbury Dairy Milk cookies. The Dairy Milks looked kind of like the old biscuits without the chocolate filling and these were more square shaped. Their Cadbury Crunchie candy bars are similar to a Butterfinger here in the states, I believe, so those cookies has pieces of peanut butter candy in them. Still I'm sure these new found cookies cannot compare to the original biscuits in taste. Even now when I cross the border, I still look for those original biscuits, just like other Canadian products from my childhood like Chocolate Soldier drink and Humpty Dumpty Chips and snacks.

I remember those six square chocolate covered shortbread cookies. There was only one store in our small town that carried them. When I was in high school my mom would take me every week to get enough packs to pack in my lunch bag for school. I've looked for them everywhere would love to have them back. They were the best.

Not only were these Cadbury chocolate covered short bread cookies around in the '70s, they were around in the early '60s. When I was in junior high (65 now) I would take my daily lunch money of 35 cents to buy a package of 6 small squares wrapped in thin aluminum every morning at the neighborhood store for 25 cants. I remember them because they were absolutely decadent.

Cadbury snacks are what those cookies are now called and, sadly, you can only buy them from England. I did have a connection a few years back online with a British foods importer so the price was not too high but they seem to have gone out of business. if you "Google" Cadbury snack, you will find them, even on a amazon, but be prepared to pay handsomely. yes, they are still as delicious as they were back then.

TimTams are so much like Cadbury chocolate covered shortbread. They are made by Arnott, a company in Australia. Kroger supermarket sells them They are delicious. The cookie is chocolate but a very mild flavor. They taste just like the original.
