Found 24th Oct 2014
I used to get these in school about 20 year ago or so. I only know them as that name. they were like a big shortbread biscuit with thick chocolate underneath and like a picture of a scottish looking bloke on it

does anywhere sell these anywhere, i dont know if dundee was a company name or the style of biscuit or what

Description
Sold in stacks of five or six, wrapped as per Eccles cakes (i.e. in clear cellophane);
Approx. 3-4 inches across (as a kid this would have been 12-18 inches);
Shortbread-type base;
Circular, with a slightly crimped edge;
Rich chocolatey topping;
Chunky grains of sugar stuck to the underside;
The word DUNDEE visible on the underside (standing proud rather than embossed), written in a rugby-ball shape, so the initial D and trailing E were smaller than the rest, the central ND the biggest of all letters.
Thanks to Peter Lee for this detailed description.

The Dundee biscuit was manufactured by a company called Broadhurst biscuits up to the early 80's, when i believe that the companys manufacturing site in Gadbrook Northwich was sold (I think) to Burtons. The factory was closed soon after and production of the Dundee was moved to Utoxeter (near Alton Towers). I'm positive it was then discontinued in the early 90's despite attempts to bolster sales with the introduction of a delightful minty variant.
Terry got in touch to say
