Nope Taxi, we won't see them down here at Costco anytime soon. If Wickie is to believed..."Despite rumors that it is illegal for them to be sold under their usual name in the United States, they are, in fact, widely available in imported food sections of grocery stores and in the US, buying digestive biscuits may require a visit to an international market, or they may be ordered from international retailers that have an Internet presence."

I think I'll just chew a couple of Tums, and have a drink.

Shows to go ya, you can live with someone for over seven years, and never know where he goes, or why.

We have them in our local chain stores, check the gourmet or international food aisle.

The chocolate versions or chocolate with orange are very nice! I like the fact that they are sold in small packages so you can't do too much damage!


You could also try making them at home.

I have used graham crackers, vanilla wafers, Lorna doones and those butter cookies that you see in blue tin cans especially at holiday times all work well

You know that you watch a lot of British TV when you don't give a second thought when you see digestive biscuits in a recipe.
