Origin of Names and Packs

Boudoir

This was originally a biscuit popular on the continent of Europe.  I do not know how we came to choose the name “Boudoir” for it.

It was commonly thought that this was a biscuit used to feed babies as something they could chew on, but in fact it was a very friable biscuit and probably not suitable.

Boudoir biscuits were very popular with housewives for making trifles.

It is a very light biscuit.  It will be noted that the pack only weighs 125g, compared to the common weight of a biscuit pack of 200g.

This biscuit became a registered line of ours and therefore the name could not be used by competitors for similar biscuits.
