The party ring is a British biscuit first made by Fox's Biscuits in 1983. It is a circular biscuit with a central finger-sized hole. On top of this is a layer of hard coloured icing with "wiggly" lines in a different colour. The five colour combinations are:
- Orange icing with white lines
- Pink icing with white lines
- Pink icing with yellow lines
- Purple icing with yellow lines
- Yellow icing with pink lines
Party rings were a product of the 1980s fashion for the newly developed chemical food dye system that enabled more lavish colours to be incorporated into the manufacture of biscuits. This made them a very popular choice for children's parties.
A standard pack of party rings consists of a long plastic tray containing five biscuit wells, each holding four biscuits of the same pattern, making twenty biscuits per pack.
In 2008, a Halloween edition in an orange and black plastic tub was produced. It contained the following two Halloween-themed colour variations:
- Orange icing with black lines
- Black icing with orange lines
