Angela Connolly on Fiona’s traditional elderflower cordial recipe Hello there, How do I find Angela's elderflower champagne on your site please? The biscuits were designed as a diet biscuit for his obese clients who were taking the waters in Bath. Now known as Fortt's Original Bath Olivers, they were invented by physician William Oliver of Bath ( says Wikipedia) in 1750 as a diet biscuit. As the couple wished everyone a Happy Easter, William reassured them: "There will be a lot of chocolate being eaten here, don't worry!The slender 200g tin contains 14 biscuits each packing a whopping 70% dark chocolate; one for the connoisseur to enjoy. Oh yes, and the big fact about these biscuits is that once upon a time John Lennon is said to have asked to be paid in Chocolate Olivers rather than pounds.

Rich, dark chocolate, generously enrobed around a crisp slow-baked biscuit Chocolate Olivers are the ultimate biscuit indulgence, made using a patented recipe from the 1930’s, which includes hops and malt, with the thickest, richest dark chocolate. I don’t really like dark chocolate but the fusion of the dark chocolate and Oliver biscuit moves this up to another plane. The royal archivist pried out all of the major stones from the regalia and placed them inside a Bath Oliver tin so that most important part of the Crown jewels could be quickly removed and hidden, should the Germans invade.I have discovered a lot of interesting biscuits but had failed to find a recipe for a simple savoury biscuit on a par with the Bath Oliver. The patented recipe which dates back to the 1930's produces an extremely indulgent and rich dark chocolate biscuit. Now in 2006 MD Nigel McCrea has at last secured the rights and recipes to once again manufacture this exclusive biscuit which he hopes to have available this autumn.
