Rich, buttery and also famed for its ‘dunking delights’, historically the farmers’ wives and people of Market Drayton, enjoyed Billington’s celebrated gingerbread by dunking it into a glass of  Port on market day.

This tradition, which is still enjoyed today, enriches the flavour of the sweet gingerbread, bringing out the spicy notes for which the biscuit is celebrated.

Billington’s deliciously crisp and aromatic gingerbread fingers are best enjoyed dipped into morning coffee, delicately nibbled with afternoon tea or daringly dunked into a glass of Port after dinner. They are equally satisfying with ice cream or other desserts.
