Did Jammie Dodgers used to have a cream filling too?

Just hosted kids party & my wife reckons Jammie Dodgers were always filled with just jam. I'm sure they used to have a cream filling & jam in the heart part only.

I think you can get a jam & custard variety now but I'm talking the originals from my childhood late 70s / early 80s.

This thing is too dry

Ah, I think you've solved it. I reckon I only ever had them as part of a selection like Family Circle. Much better biscuit

The originals didn't and still don't, but the knockoffs do and taste better for it.

Jammie Dodgers were always just jam, and quite a firm chewy jam at that.

There were plenty of similar competitors that had jam and cream.

Cheers,

Ah yeah, Smiley Faces are another I must've been thinking of.

Any what's with Party Rings. They're OK but the kids think they're the mutts nuts?

On the subject of things getting smaller it reminds me of a story relating to Cadburys cream eggs.
A person wrote to Cadburys to complain that over the years their cream eggs had gotten smaller and the he thought it was outrageous that the cost kept rising while the eggs shrank.

Cadburys duly replied and informed the person that the cream egg had not changed since they first went into production as they were still using the original moulds to make them and that possibly the only thing that had changed was that the person had grown up.:)

Surely you can't say the same about Wagon Wheels?

However, a lot of chocolate bars (and other products) have been reduced in size recenly. The companies tend to quote two reasons (1) cost rising whilst product price has reached the point where sales would fall off if it were increased (I can beleive that one) and (2) in support of the governments obesity drive (yeah right that is just convenient).

I call bollocks, you never used to get triple Bounty Bars, XL Twix bars or x2 Snickers.

Mars Bars now are just a little bigger than the old Fun Sized ones.

While the outer dimensions of cream eggs might not have changed everything else has. I remember when the chocolate used to be so thick you had to put some effort into biting through it. I stopped buying them completely when Cadburys switched to their B grade chocolate instead of Dairy milk a couple of years ago and they also became a chore to unwrap because they were so sticky where the insides had started to leak out.
