Well, we don’t do things half-baked here at Poundstretcher, so here’s a list of some of our top biscuit tin favourites that we know you’ll go absolutely cream cracker for. 

    So, kick back and relax with a brew and a biccie –the only thing you’ll have to worry about is whether to dunk or not!

    Chocolate Chip Cookies   

    Fox's chocolate chip cookiesA favourite amongst kids and adults alike, Fox’s chocolate chip cookies fulfil every sweet craving you may have.
