Does anyone know where I can get a packet of Garibaldi biscuits?
I've got to do a presentation on the unification of European countries for my politics course, and I would like to illustrate it with a packet of Bourbons (France) Garibaldi (Italy) and of course some doughnuts (Germany).
Any ideas?

They are open until 8pm tonight.

Hope this helps?

I just bought some from Tesco at Surrey Quays (Canada Water tube). You can have them if you want.

I like the idea. You'll be wanting a packet of Nice biscuits on the side, noting that Nice resisted France until 1860 (with Garibaldi leading the resistance).

I've just been reading that Garibaldi biscuits were first manufactured in Bermondsey!
