While technically more of a bread roll than a biscuit, Dorset Knobs are made by a biscuit company and have been since the Victorian times, so it’s only fair that we spread the word this National Biscuit Day. Plus, Dorset Knobs are crispy and crumbly, like a biscuit rather than a bread.

Whether you view them as a biscuit or a bread roll, we’re sure that even if you’ve never tasted a real Dorset Knob made to the original recipe, you will have heard of them, especially with the Knob Throwing Festival which takes place every few years.

A local favourite with the best packaging ???? . If you’ve tried them you will know that’s these savoury biscuits are hard and dry – three times baked in fact.
