In the United Kingdom, Farley's Rusks are a dry biscuit dating from the 1880s, but manufactured by Heinz since 1994. They are usually given to infants, either soaked in milk and mashed up, or in their original hard form as a teething aid. They have a cult following among university students. Study found 100g of Farley's Original Rusks contained more sugar than 100g of chocolate biscuits. (all my sister and brothers had these when they were little)
