The malted milk is a type of biscuit, first produced by Elkes Biscuits of Uttoxeter (now owned by Fox's Biscuits) in 1924. They are named after their malt flavouring and milk content.

The design used varies according to the manufacturer, with variants including two milk churns and a cow, a cow and a gate or a cow and a calf.

Variations of the biscuit include a chocolate covered single biscuit, as well as a custard cream like variety where two biscuits sandwich a vanilla-based cream.[1]
