I like Threptin biscuits (the regular flavour). I always have since I was about 3 years old. My earliest memory of them is from Agra (of the Taj Mahal fame yes) where we stayed for 2 years from 1980 to '82. The box hasn't changed at all I think. And I like it that they call them diskettes.

A tin lies right within reach as I write this. An unlikely reminder of the past. Mum said her grandfather liked it too... the past just got older!

What exactly is a Threptin biscuit? Is it similar to an American cracker or cookie?

Just curious...

So good to hear from you! No Jill. They're not that glamorous! These are sort of a dietary supplement fortified with some vitamins. Kids usually hate it! But I got hooked on for god knows what reason.

You can see a snap of the rather ugly looking tin here: http://www.raptakos.com/prodnew_ttn_diskett.htm

PS: Please give my regards to your mum.

Doesn't look very appetizing...
Mama says hello, Mr. Inal : ) and I think you should post a photo in your profile, so I can see with whom it is I'm corresponding.

Going on a hunt now. I seem to have lost my muse and not quite sure where to find her.

Have a wonderful day!

The profile doesn't support snaps Jill(I'm so happy!)! So I'm just posting one as a regular post.

Hope the muse was hunted and was a-musing! Best, Mr. Inal! :)
