Help With A Name of Danish Cookie Company.

Posted by Victorious Secret on 19 Nov 2010, 20:39

Hello Folks,

This one is a strange request so please bear with me.

I would like to find out a Danish cookie company name. I know it is imported from Europe. But I was too young to understand the writing.

Here are the following discriptions:

I ate those cookies roughly 30 years ago.

It comes in a traditional round tin box.

On top of the box is a illustration of Victorian era(?) soldier in red uniform and a lady carring umbrella in a long dress. Sometimes there's a wagon or Victorian house on the back ground.

The cookies are delicious.

If anyone know or had the cookie please let me know the name of that company. Even post a picture or two will be greatly appreciated.

I thank you for your time and helping hand.
