Confectionery mystery: Are Troy biscuits really waggon wheels by another name?

It is interesting to see that S.S. Napoli is still disgorging its cargo, which is continuously ending up on Branscombe beach in Devon.

The Sun pictures thousands of "Troy" chocolate biscuits on the beach. They look like Waggon Wheels to me. Given the previous cargo washed up of Bibles in Swahili, perhaps these are, in fact, Waggon Wheels under a different trade name for some exotic country.

A google for "Troy chocolate biscuits" came up with nothing, as did similar searches in French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German.

So, this fascinating confectionery mystery remains. Has anyone ever heard of "Troy" chocolate biscuits?
