A Blue Riband is a wafer based biscuit covered in chocolate. It’s one of the oldest and most affordable of the biscuit family and one I remember fondly growing up. This is a kind of treat biscuit rather than a dunking one and works well in any situation.
With healthy eating a big deal have Blue Riband been left behind as an unhealthy treat or have they survived the test of time and earned their place in your biscuit tin? Let’s find out.

Blue Ribands are a treat biscuit which means everyone knows they’re not healthy to begin with. However, with the use of our biscuit list you can see that there are many biscuits with a lower syn cost each as well as lower syn per grams out there to choose from.
