Digestive Biscuits

Oh yummy, Migros have McVities Digestive biscuits, 5.00 tl or 2.50 tl for plain ones and 2.50 tl for either milk or plain chocolate ones.

Re: Digestive Biscuits

Yes, Turkish food manufacture Ulker's bought out United Biscuits, who make digestives a year or so ago. They are also in Sok and Kipa...

I popped down to our local Migros (Tosmur on 35 mts road )yesterday and low and behold they had Pork Luncheon Meat 200 gram by Tulip made in Denmark 12 ytl.Also 500 gram Smoky Streaky Bacon at 46 YTL.
Guess what I had for tea last light,yep Pasta,she sliced it and put it into portions and froze it saying thats for our treat.Arrgggg.

I think it was Yildiz, rather than Ulker. I was surprised at the sale, though.

Re: Digestive Biscuits

As Yildiz owns Ulker it makes little difference.

The big difference is though - apart from price - how much smaller the Turkish produced McVities Digestives are...probably half the size of the UK ones.

I hadn't realised that Yildiz owned Ulker.

Re: Digestive Biscuits

In actual fact, Yildiz is just the conglomerate name for the Ulker family who established Yildiz Holdings in 1944 and still run it.
Their biggest acquisition was United Biscuits but they also own Godiva Belgian Chocolate as well as the Ulker brand.
