“ Brand: Cadbury's „
The other night I had a few friends round and we all brought a few things to nibble throughout the evening. One of my friends brought round a bag of Cadbury Biscbits, until that night I had never heard of these so was keen to give them a try and see what they were like and they seemed like the ideal snack for a night in.
The Cadbury Biscbits come in a dark purple foil bag, the Cadbury logo is right at the top of the bag with the word "Biscbits" written just underneath in large white letters, the flavour of the Biscbits is written right at the bottom of the bag, in our case we had the Rocky Road Crunch variety, this was written in pink lettering, the top part of the bag is also pink. There are also pictures of the Cadbury Biscbits on the front of the bag so you can see exactly what they are like. The back of the bag is the same dark purple colour and also has the name of the product written on it. On the right hand side of the back of the bag is all the product information including the ingredients and the nutritional information, this is all clearly written and set out in purple writing within white squares. The bottom of the bag is designed so that you can stand it up. To open the bag you need to cut along the dotted line, the bag is also resealable, there is a sticker on the back which can be peeled off, you simply fold the top of the bag over and hold it in place with sticker.
Cadbury Biscbits are basically small biscuit rings covered in Cadbury milk chocolate, the biscuits in the Rocky Road variety are cherry and marshmallow flavoured, the actual Biscbits are quite small, however the bag is full almost to the top so you do get quite a lot per bag. This product comes in a further four flavours including Honeycomb Crunch, Caramel Crisp, Orange Crunch and Mint Crunch. When my friend first offered me some of these to try I declined as they are marshmallow flavoured and I assumed that they were not going to be vegetarian, however after reading the back of the packet they actually are suitable for vegetarians, normally marshmallows or anything with these in them are not vegetarian so it made a nice change for these not to contain animal product.
The nutritional information appears on the back of the packet and is per 7 Biscbits
* Calories - 125
* Sugar - 11.4g
* Fat - 5.3g
* Saturates - 2.9g
* Salt - 0.16g
When I first tried these I didn't actually look at the calorie content, however I was quite surprised as that is quite a lot of calories for just 7 of the Biscbits especially as they are not overly big,, 7 of these is nothing you could quite easily eat a lot more and consume a lot more calories without realising.
Price & Availability
As I have mentioned I didn't actually purchase this item myself, however I have since seen them available in my local Tesco when doing my shopping, although Cadbury Biscbits are also available in other supermarkets. In Tesco this item is priced around £2.00 for a 110g bag, personally I feel this is a little bit expensive, although the bag is almost full it wouldn't take you long to eat a bag so they are probably not the best value for money.
The allergy advise also appears on the back of the packet and is written in a bright yellow box so that it stands out. This states that the product contains wheat, milk and soya, it also mentions that Cadbury Biscbits many contain nuts.
When I first tried Cadbury Biscbits you cannot fail to notice that they are covered in Cadbury milk chocolate, I imagined that being cherry flavoured they would be quite tangy and fruity, for some reason I also expected them to have bits of fruit in them, however this is not the case, they look just like plain biscuit rings covered in chocolate. The Biscbits are very tasty and I probably could have eaten a bag of these on my own, however I was a little disappointed with the flavouring, the cherry and marshmallow flavour was quite mild and they were not overly fruity at all. I think that if I didn't know what flavour these were before I tried them I would not have been able to tell they were cherry and marshmallow flavoured, you could tell that there was a slight flavour there, however this was mild and I could not tell exactly what it was meant to be without looking at the packaging. Although the actual flavour was quite mild I have to say I did enjoy these, they were of an excellent quality and the combination of the biscuit and the Cadbury milk chocolate was quite tasty.
Although I did enjoy my Cadbury Biscbits I do feel they are quite expensive for what they are, they do not work out very good value for money. In my opinion these are ideal for a night in as a tasty snack and as a bit of a treat, however I do not think these are something I would buy on a regular basis. I would like to try the other flavours of these so would probably buy them again in the future, although it would have to be for an occasion rather than just on a regular basis. Overall I would recommend Cadbury Biscbits as they are quite tasty, however I do not think the Rocky Road flavour is strong enough in my opinion and they are a little on the expensive side.
I am always on the lookout for new chocolates/Biscuits/Treats and a few months ago I spotted a range of a new product by Cadbury. They are called Biscbits and the varieties available are Chocolate Crisp, Honeycomb Crunch, Orange Crunch and this one... Caramel Crisp. I have yet to try the Orange Crunch as I am not a lover of Orange chocolate things, but I have bought all the others and they are yummy! This one however is probably my favourite. I really like the packaging on these. It's the classic Cadbury Purple colouring and is a sort of foil packaging ensuring more freshness of the product. It also has easy opening and the 'peal & seal' sticky label so you can seal up the pack once opened. Each bag contains 110g of the product. The Biscbits themselves are square in shape and are described as 'the crispy snappy square'. The chocolate is Cadbury's nice milk chocolate on the outside with biscuit on the inside filled with tiny crunchy caramel bits. These really are delicious to taste and extremely Moorish.

These are currently on special offer at Asda for a £1.00 per bag; the usual price is about £1.95. At their current price I would suggest these are well worth buying but in my view almost £2.00 per bag is too expensive as you do not get loads in the bag. These are a great tasting new Chocolate snack from Cadbury; worthy of 4 Dooyoo stars in my view.
