When I was a youngster, I used to get Zing chocolate biscuits from a vending machine at my local swimming pool. I used to love them, but I can't find anyone else who even remembers them.
 

Anyone on here know what I'm talking about?

Yes guys, in West London, late 60's early 70's.
 

I think you got two in a pack, and they were about 3 ins long, 2 ins wide, and very thin.

I've had a scout about but can find nothing!  I wonder if it was a localised thing?  Does anyone else you know remember them?

They certainly do, at least two of my friends can also remember buying them, and it's a bit annoying that I can't find out more.
 

Still, never mind eh?

 

Bill.

I go back that far - but I lived on the other side of London - north east. Did they have raisins in them? I have a vague memory of a thin bar, came in milk and plain chocolate, and I seem to remember them having raisins in.

Raisins? no they didn't have raisins.
 

They were thin, and about the size of a playing card.

They were thin, crisp, and covered in chocolate.

Yeah I remember them, I was at Teacher Training College in Hull in the mid 70's and I lived on them and Hull Brewery Mild and it didn't do me any harm!! Disappeared without trace.

As a teenager my folks ran a small corner shop.  I used to have ZINGs on a daily basis.  Easily the best chocolate biscuit ever.  Apparently most of the rest of the UK did not agree with me.  What we need is a RETRO shop to reproduce these old mouth watering sweets.  Bring back Chocolate Mint Cracnell!!!
