I had forgotten about digestives (its what happens when I haven't been to the UK in over a year :P).

Crap...now I'm missing them

I'd go with the digestives, as a closer comparison.
We happen to get both, here.

I'm not sure I'd say either are absolutely the height of nutritional value, but they are definitely NOT shortbread.

Graham crackers are similar in flavor to digestives, but they're quite a bit lower in fat-- about half the fat of McVitie's digestives. They're a little less sweet as well, and much thinner.

You can make graham crackers if you need them for some specific reason. They're no harder to make than any other cookie; the only challenge is rolling them thin enough. Just Google a recipe; there's no unusual ingredients or anything.

Graham crackers are basically the same as digestive biscuits. For example, in the US we use graham crackers to make cheesecake or fruit tart crusts. Graham crackers are a little coarser and maybe sweeter than digestives. (I kind of forget because we get digestives here in the UAE. Graham crackers are rarely available.)

probably closer to cream crackers or even shortbread biscuits.

Hi we do not get graham crackers in Scotland, emoticon are they equivalent to oatcakes or cream crackers.
