Would love to be able to buy these biscuits - a
childhood favourite.

I quite agree. I loved these biscuits when I was growing up and truly wish I could see them in shops again. How sad they are gone.

These were lovely and such a treat. Wish we could still buy them.

Yes, do bring back milk and honey creams. These were my all time favourite biscuits when I was young.

Bring back milk and honey biscuits

Like so many of your previous correspondents, milk-and-honey biscuits were the top of my favourite biscuit list. They mysteriously disappeared from the shop shelves, maybe when biscuit boxes were replaced by packaged biscuits and no longer sold by the pound, and were never seen again.
If there is any justice in the world, they will make them again for me to relive my childhood and for upcoming generations to have a new experience and delicious in life.

Please bring Milk and Honey back. I often think of them and never understood why they stopped being produced. I absolutely loved them.
N. B. Same recipe please.

I liked them so much my mother brought me a full box of packets from the wholesaler in Bradford.

I have been looking for these for 40 odd years. I was begining to think I imagined them even excisting. How I loved them. Please bring them back, in this health conscious world they are an ideal way to remain healthy!!

My Mum worked in Huntleys in Huyton during the 70s and would buy these from the factory shop. Best biscuits in the world. Sorry to find you can no longer buy them. Chocolate Oliver's was another favourite and I've managed to buy these from the online shop at Huntley and Palmers.

Only one way to eat them... take the biscuit off, nibble the cream and go for the honey centre last of all. Brilliant, bring them back!

I grew up in New Zealand and these were my all time favourite biscuits so if Huntley and Palmer ever brings them back I will be buying them.
The first thing I always looked for in our small local grocery store were these biscuits when I was a kid and I was so disappointed when they were no longer available though we did get them back for a while when I was a teenager and then that was it they disappeared off our shelves never to be seen again. So a plea to Huntley and Palmers bring back the Milk and Honey biscuits

I'm always going on about these biscuits and how my late mum bought them as treat for me, we lived in Reading not far from Huntley and Palmers factory, nothing today compares to them.I to would love to see them brought back.

Surely M&S could come up with a copy of these delightful biscuits. The creamy filling and the lovely "honey" filling were highly addictive.

Comment by: Janette Trundle on 23rd September 2016 at 08:10

Please bring them back.

Comment by: Thais on 18th August 2016 at 20:57

The best biscuits ever!!! I would give anything to have them back in my life. So many memories1

Comment by: Dawn on 16th July 2016 at 06:32

Talked about them at work yesterday found them today on the net want to buy them now after 50 years I want them back.please please please.

Oh God oh God oh God I still miss these fantastic biscuits! If only they could come back I could go happily into my old age! ;)

These beautifully crafted biscuits were part of my childhood landscape, my Mum who is not no longer with me sadly bought them as a treat, they were delicious! and dunked perfectly as they stayed in one piece after dipped in tea. I miss these biscuits and finding this picture of them was a delight. I agree! BRING THEM BACK HUNTLEY AND PALMERS! no idea why they were discontinued in the first place they were far superior to custard creams, were they perhaps more expensive to manufacture and therefore not cost effective?

Comment by: Ray Fishman on 12th August 2015 at 20:30

So glad to find others who remember this excellent biscuit. Remember them in 50's and 60's...only Custard creams and Bourbons come close.

Comment by: Bernice on 19th November 2014 at 21:19

These were my favourite biscuits. I can't find anyone who remembers them though, so it's nice to see other comments.

Comment by: trish on 14th June 2014 at 08:02

This was the best biscuit ever. If only it would return - even as a limited time 'special'

Comment by: Susan on 26th April 2014 at 21:41

These were my favourite biscuits. I really wish they were still made today.

Comment by: KP on 4th January 2014 at 23:10

I remember my nan keeping a stock of these in her pantry for us whenever we went to visit her in Wales. Would love to see them make a comeback!

I to loved these biscuits, I used to have them during the morning break at my infants school with the small bottle of milk that we had every day. The teacher charged us 1 old penny for 2 of them. They were the best jam and cream biscuits ever made, nothing has ever come close in taste or texture, BRING THEM BACK HUNTLEY&PALMERS !!!!!

I would always pick the the Milk and Honey biscuit from a tin of assorted bisuits. I still miss them! I am known to split open a custard cream, smear a litle honey on the middle, and re-join it! Its the nearest I can get to re-creating the taste, but the honey lacks the 'chewiness' of the originals. Try it!
