Bandages, plasters, medicine years out of date, nappy pins, reels of cotton all tangled up and a few perished finger or thumb stools normally.

Biscuits of an executive nature.

Bourbons

I have a biscuit tin from about 1955 depicting the Queen in uniform riding side saddle at Trooping the Colour. It contains coarse fishing floats, hooks etc - even some hooks to gut. Still use it on regrettably rare river fishing trips. Home tin has biscuits - bourbons. Highland shortbreads, digestives.

Must be this one if he's got to fight the "Boss" for it

Or a tin containing executive tomatoes?

Fig Rolls, Crincle Crunch and Viennese Melts are suitably executive nature...

Tesco Value Biscuit Barrel (Malted Milk, Custard Cremes, Bourbons, Nice) for 'dunking' on a daily basis. Foxes Crunch Creams, Chocolate Digestives and Pearsons Shortbread for 'Swanking' when people come round.☺

OK - time to reveal the truth. The biscuits that are found in the tin referred to by wee eddie are in my opinion the best chocolate biscuits on the market.

Also in the executive tin are Ginger nuts and Rich tea. At around this time there may be some shortbreads as well, we are usually given a tin of them each year.

Now you know my guilty pleasures - at least as far as biscuits are concerned.

If these are supplied by the company, are they declared as a "benefit in kind", or are they a health hazard under the Health and Safety at Work Act? I am suddenly quite peckish.
