This is one of the childhood snacks that we had back home when we were little. While the local provision shops stocked those wafer biscuits in huge tins and sold them by the weight, nothing beat Tunnock's caramel wafer biscuits. Its chocolate coating made all the difference. Unlike the other biscuits stored in tins, Tunnock's was sold individually and cost quite a bit more too.
After a meal at Cantina del Ponte and a visit to St Saviour's Dock, we were taking a break at Design Museum London's cafe (on the ground floor) when Wife caught sight of Tunnock's wafer biscuits on the cafe's counter going for 70p each. A minute later, we were gleefully peeling off its trademark yellow red stripped wrapper.
It did taste just as good as we remembered. The only thing missing was the hot and humid weather.
Are you a fan of Tunnock's as well? Do you know of any other cafes that offer it?
