I know how they come from, it was more a case of where they came from. I don't remember any local biscuit factories. Maybe there was a huge national trade in broken and other malformed biscuits.
When I worked making Branston Pickle (Premier Foods) the best times were when the factory shop had Ambrosia. It's a long way from Devon to Suffolk- I can't imagine the Devonians got excited about pickled onions in the same way.

United biscuits at Ashby will have been the source of yours.

Ah, that might be, this was Heanor market. I always remember it and also the fact that the toilets had a big sign warning about VD. None of us knew what VD was (a parental request for more information was always rebuffed) but it soon spread to 'so-and-so having VD' being a standard insult (I imagine this was more than a little troubling for our schoolteachers). It also meant we peed very quickly in case we stood there too long and caught the dreaded VD.
