The BN Biscuit (or Biscuiterie Nantaise) is a brand of biscuit, consisting of a filling, such as chocolate, sandwiched between two biscuits. It was launched on 12 May 2000, acquired by United Biscuits in 1998, and relaunched in September 2000.[1] They are manufactured at the United Biscuits site in Vertou, France.

BNs are produced in two different shapes: circles and rounded squares. One side of the biscuit is decorated with one of four different faces. There are six different flavours of the BN biscuit: chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, raspberry, apricot and milk chocolate. They also come in a "Mini BN" variety.

A relaunch in September 1999 involved an advertising campaign with the name "BN BN" sung along to the tune of catchy "Mah Nà Mah Nà". Despite public petitions, BN Biscuits have not been sold in the United Kingdom since 2000; however, they are still sold in many French and Afghan stores.[citation needed]
