Are digestive biscuits popular anywhere outside of Britain, as they do not sound appetizing?

    Digestives are appetizing! Very nice as a not-too-sweet treat with tea or coffee, but also good as a snack with a piece of mature cheddar cheese on it.

    In the US they are known as 'Gram Crackers', [mainly used in cheesecake bases & desserts like S'mores].

    They are kind of an 'old people' cookie, but I guess they sell ok, I see them in the stores when I go shopping. I actually don't mind one once in a great while, they are a nice change to sickly sweet desserts.

    They're sold in every grocery store here in Canada. They are delicious. And they don't taste like graham crackers. I love digestive biscuits eaten all by themselves but the only use I have for graham crackers is to put them into a cheesecake crust.

    Americans look at them and say Why? It is a cracker.

    This article says they are sold in imported food sections of U.S. groceries and available by mail order. Although I have heard the term before I didn't know what they were and looked it up. I've always envisioned old people having them with tea because they can barely tolerate anything else, lol. They must be pretty good with 6 million being eaten a day in the UK.

    I think India has their version, but they were under British rule forever, so there you go. Same with Australia and some parts of the Caribbean.
