I remember eating these when I was younger and then came across them again a while ago in Poundland. Not quite remembering what they tasted like exactly, but knowing I used to like them, I gave them a go. Now they're often in the cupboard for when a super sweet biscuity treat is required! McVities is a hugely popular and well-known brand, with an ever-increasing array of products. They're one of the leaders when it comes to biscuits, so I have some faith in their products being tasty and good quality. The Gold Bar is quite unique and a bit of a classic, though they can be found relatively easily in most larger supermarkets and, as I've mentioned, ... Read the complete review

Being diabetic I cannot eat too much chocolate but one weakness has to be McVities Gold Bars. Strictly speaking they are not proper chocolate, but they delicious!!!!! I usually by my Gold Bars in a pack of 9, just lately they have been on offer at my local Tesco for only £1 for 9 bars, a bargain!!!! They usually retail for just over £1 depending on where you buy them from. The Packaging Gold Bars come individual gold coloured wrappers. Each bar has the word Gold written in large gold letters edged in blue right across the middle of the wrapper, underneath is the brand of the bars which is McVities, in very small letters are the words "Crunch ...

I love biscuits, and one of my staple lunchtime goodies is always to have a chocolate bar or a biscuit bar. This is like the perfect middle ground as it is part biscuit and part sweet caramel "chocolate". It does have some similarities to white chocolate but it is quite different to most other bars that I've come across. You can buy McVities Gold Bars in most supermarkets where they cost in the region of £1.00 for 9 individually wrapped bars - bargain! Product description: "Crunchy Biscuit Bars with a Unique Gold Coating." The bar itself is fairly small in size, and is similar to other biscuit bars such as Club or Penguin. It has ...

Since I try to loose some weight I hardly ever buy sweetes. My husband can't live withot them so the other day he came home with a bag of sweets. I'm not joking, he bought about 10 different sweets from our local supermarket. One of them was McVities Gold bar which came in a multipack containing 9 individually wrapped bars. The multipack costs 1.14 pounds in Sainsbury's and about the same int he other supermarkets. The idea behind this bar is to eat something healthy and tasty. I identify completely with this idea but I don't think this is th ebest option... The bar consists of a biscuit which is the healthy part... and is richly coated in orangy ...

As I have stated before I like to add a sweet treat to mine and my husbands packed lunch but I have recently decided to try and cut down on the size of the bar of chocolate that I have so have been purchasing smaller ones instead. One pack of chocolate bars which caught my eye recently was the McVitie's Gold bars which I had not actually eaten for some time but as they were on special offer I thought I would buy a packet. These gold bars are 'crunchy biscuit bars with a caramel flavour coating'. I purchased a multi-pack containing 9 of the gold biscuit bars from Tesco on a half price special offer for just £0.89 which I though was great value as they work out ... Read the complete review
