Kemps BiscuitsĀ 
A tin of biscuits ... and not by Huntley & Palmers.

Kemps Biscuits,Great Coates,Grimsby,Lincs,England.

They started manufacturing in 1926 and were eventually taken over by United Biscuits in 1972.

But that's really all Google could tell me about them.
Which is a pretty poor return for such a long history.

The item has a 1968 copyright date.

Is approximately 9" x 8.5" and 4" tall.

With a nett weight of 3lb. Which is a lot of biccies.
But nothing to say what type they were sadly.
When you think of decorative biscuit tins though,it's usually Huntley & Palmers that springs to mind.
And they certainly produced similar kids' tv spin-offs.

But not for Trumptonshire sadly.
And,for whatever reason,they join the list of "ones who got away." ( see bottom of home page )

The good news of course is that this one's a belter.
And if the biccies were half-as-good as the tin I'd like to think it sold well -if only to reward Kemps for taking a punt and doing such a good job with the artwork.

Either way,it's certainly one of my favourite bits of Trumptonalia,and it makes me smile whenever I see it.
Easily pleased ? Probably. And I'm not even going to try and claim I bought it purely to store things in either !
