      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good quality food.

      I like to eat lots of sweets or chocolates but at the weekend I normally like to eat more then as my family and friends visit more at this time and my grandchildren come to stay or visit and I like to offer them something for a treat and some of my family and friends have small children and so when I recently saw these mini cookies for only 67p for a pack of 6 bags, I thought I would buy 2 packs and save some money because they are normally priced at around £1.30 and so they were a bargain price.

      They come in the pack with 6 individual 25g bags, they are a nice small sized packet and inside there are around 7 small round biscuits, they have tiny chocolate chips in the biscuit and the texture of them are nice and crunchy, they are a lovely tasting biscuit, they are nice and light and melt in the mouth, they are around the size of a 2p piece, which is just the right size for small children and my grandchildren just love these, there are just the right amount in the pack too for a treat for them.


      These biscuits are of a very good quality indeed and for the usual price, they are still very good value for money, they are ideal for packed lunches and picnics and I have in the past used these for parties as they are nice nibbles.

      Each bag contains 123 calories, 7.6g sugars, 5.8g fat and 0.2g of salt.

      They also contain no artificial colours or flavours and they are manufactured by McVitie's a very well known brand of foods and they make superb biscuits and these are superb too.

      These are very satisfying after they have been eaten, and have eaten these for lunch and while on the go and a bag is handy for me to put in my car and eat them while out and about, and I find that they are a little moreish for me, as I just love biscuits and the texture of these are nice and crunchy, even though the size of them are quite small, the taste is just as good and the quality.

      With these biscuits, the taste of the chocolate chip can be tasted, although the amount is only tiny, the taste is apparent straight away, when I place them in bowls for the children, they always like them that way for some reason, and I love the satisfaction they give.

      I really think these are fabulous for children as a snack as there are only a small amount in the bag and they tend to think they have eaten more, and I they sometimes say they are so hungry and a bag of these satisfies they hunger until their main meal time.

      I highly recommend these for anyone to try, as I think they are extremely good value for money and excellent quality too, and look out for the special offers as they can save you a lot of money.


      I give these 5 stars.

        A great pack of cookies to share!!

        Like many (I guess) I have a habit of buying something extra when I stop for Petrol. This is usually a chocolate bar or crisps, and a drink. It is a habit I must stop.

        Recently after I had just filled up I went to pay and my daughter decided to come in with me. She loves choc chip cookies and when she saw these she immediately grabbed a packet. These aren't the 25g packs that you can buy 6 of for about £1.30, this pack alone is 125g and is crammed with little golden cookies.

        The pack is the Tear and Share variety with a re-closable sticker. It is purple in nature, but instead of just the blue strip like the picture here, it is golden on the top.

        The pack is keen to point out that there are no artificial colours or flavours. There is also no hydrogenerated vegetable oil used.

        Upon opening the pack you got a lovely fresh biscuit smell, and the golden cookies all appeared fresh. They weren't broken and were nice and small. She 'reluctantly' shared her packet with me. As a keen chocolate eater I was interested in the chocolate chip bits and I found them in plentiful supply. They complimented the fresh biscuit very well. The biscuit itself was not too hard and was delicious.

        Ingredients

        Wheat Flour
        Vegetable Oil
        Sugar
        Chocolate Chips (15%)
        (Sugar
        Cocoa Mass
        Cocoa Butter
        Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin)
        Natural Flavouring)
        Dried Whey
        Partially Inverted Sugar Syrup
        Salt
        Raising Agent (Sodium Carbonate)
        Natural Flavourings

        Nutritional Value per 100g

        Energy 491 kcal
        Protein 5.5g
        Carbohydrate 65.1g
        of which sugars 30.3g
        Fat 23.1g
        of which saturates 11.7g
        Fibre 2.8g
        Sodium 0.3g
        *Equivalent as salt 0.8g

        These are a great little snack and come in a great packet, that can be resealed. However I paid £1.50 for mine (Petrol shop Price) so these aren't cheap. To be honest I think I'd rather have a couple of different chocolate bars. They are tasty though, so recommended!!

          McVitie's Mini Choc Chip Cookies - Lovely little snack pack.

          It does sometimes feel, that I buy the same sweets and chocolate for my children, every week. They don't often complain, but sometimes say, it would be nice to have a change. I began searching Tesco online for some alternatives and McVitie's Mini Choc Chic Cookies, was one that I found.

          McVitie's minis are exactly as they are described. They are miniature versions of their well known and very popular biscuits. My kids love both the choc chip cookies and the milk chocolate digestives. I will be reviewing the choc chip cookies this time.

          I always buy McVitie's Mini Choc Chip Cookies in a multi-pack, which contain 6 bags. These bags are just the perfect size for a lunch box and make a tasty snack without being overly filling. I always find that they are great quality and every bag of cookies, tastes fresh and crunchy. They are a lovely golden colour and have a good amount of chocolate chips in them.

          *Ingredients*

          Wheat Flour, Vegetable Oil (Palm), Sugar, Chocolate Chips (15%)[Sugar, Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin), Natural Flavourings], Dried Whey, Partially Inverted Sugar Syrup, Salt, Raising Agent (Sodium Bicarbonate), Natural Flavourings.

          They do contain milk, soya, gluten and may contain nuts, so not suitable if you have an allergy to any of these.

          They do not contain artificial colours or flavours or hydrogenated vegetable oil.

          *Nutritional Information per pack*

          Calories - 123
          Protein - 1.4g
          Carbohydrates - 16.3g
          of which saturates - 7.6g
          Fat - 5.8g
          of which saturates - 2.9g
          Fibre - 0.7g
          Sodium - 0.1g

          McVities Mini Choc Chip Cookies are suitable for vegetarians.

          I buy my multi-pack in Tesco, where they cost £1.19, which works out at 20p per bag. This makes them a very affordable snack, as many chocolate bars cost over 30p each now. With three children and a husband, who all like a sweet treat every day, this can really add up to a lot of money. Finding affordable snacks like this, makes all the difference.

          I will keep buying these and will also try out some more of McVities mini range. They are excellent quality and although they are a bit small, I still find them good value and an enjoyable snack.

          Lovely chocolate chip cookies !

          I'm always trying to find a new snack for my son to try rather than eating the same crisps or chocolate and these are perfect for kids and adults.
          Mcvities are a well known company that do some lovely biscuits and when I saw these, I just had to give them a try.

          The bag contains around 10 cookies, not many, but perfect for a little lunchbox snack for the kids though. I love chocolate chip cookies and could eat them till the cows come home, so it's a good job there aren't many of them because the kids wouldn't get a look in!

          The cookies are flat on one side and a little rounded and crumbly on the top with a few chocolate chips visible on both sides. They're a dark golden colour and are really crumbly so they fall apart in your mouth meaning my son makes a complete mess with them, but don't all kids with biscuits?

          You can get these in bags of 25 grams or 40 grams. The 25 gram bags come in the multi-pack bags of 6 which you can get these at Asda for about £1.38. The 40 gram bags are sold seperately and are about 58p.

          The packaging is burgandy and blue with the Mcvities logo being fairly big and the product title being very big and bold, these are easy to spot on the shelf at the shop.

          The cookies taste heavenly, a lovely mixture of crunchy tasty cookie with the contrasting soft milk chocolate that melts and crumbles in your mouth. Irresistable!

          Nutritional information: per 25g bag:

          Energy kJ - 514
          Kcal - 123
          Carbohydrates (of which sugars) - 7.6 grams
          Fat (of which sugars) - 5.8 grams
          Protein - 1.4 grams
          Fibre - 0.7 grams

          Quite a bit of fat there, but I'm sure if eaten as part of a balanced diet, there is nothing wrong with them.

          Overall, these little choc chip cookies taste amazing and are brilliant as a little snack or lunchbox addition and aren't too expensive. I'd recommend them because all of my family like them very much.

            Scoff the lot!

            McVities are known for their cakes and biscuits, and have been for years.

            On a recent supermarket wander, I felt the need for something to satisfy a hormonal craving. It had to include chocolate, and not offer too much in one hit, as I'm still trying to lose weight.

            A small bag of mini cookies seemed to fit the bill (I'd seen a TV ad for Maryland Cookies) so I bought a bag of McVities Mini Choc Chip Cookies.

            Nutritional Values are important, so here they are:
            Per bag, 25g. 123 calories, 5.8g fat (2.9g which saturates), 1.4g protein, 16.3g carbs (7.5g which sugars), 0.7g fibre and 0.1g sodium.

            Opening the bag, you find lots of little (25g) bags. Open this, and you immediately smell cookies. Mmmmm

            A quick count says there is an average of 8 cookies per bag (hope you're impressed, I had to eat two bags to get your guys an average!) and eat cookie is perfectly shaped to fit straight in the mouth. No biting here

            The cookie has just the right amount of crumble to it's texture. You can snap it in half easy enough in the mouth. The small bits seem to melt away on the tongue. But there's enough bite to make it a satisfactory biscuit.

            It's not overly chocolatey, but that is very good. For a cookie, you want to be able to see the chips, and get the choc hit as it melts over your tongue - in my opinion. These cookies match that description.

            Considering the amount of cookies per bag, I'd say these are as close to perfect as you can get with bought biscuits. Just enough to satisfy that craving, but too many to make you feel bad about yourself for scoffing the lot

              A great lunch box filler or snack for all ages!

              (This review is based around a 40 gram bag)

              A lunch box favourite I still haven't grown out of McVitie's Mini Cookies are tasty and just the right size for a snack.

              The bag contains about 9 cookies; I could eat and eat these so it's probably quite lucky there are no more. Each cookie is round with one flat side and one rounded side (kind of like Cadbury Buttons).

              The cookies themselves are very crumbly, I love this aspect, and they literally break up in your mouth but are still quite solid. The cookies are rather dusty and can be messy, but then can't all biscuits?

              The biscuits don't have too much chocolate in (and this coming from a chocoholic), I appreciate biscuits need to taste of biscuit and I think these have just the right biscuit - chocolate chip ratio.

              You can buy these in bags of 25 grams or 40 grams, the 25 gram bags come in the multi pack bags of 6. You can buy these at Asda for £1.38 per multi bag. The individual bags of 40 grams are usually more expensive and sold in places like garages; the last 40 gram bag I brought was £0.60 pence.

              The packet is sealed which keeps these lovely and fresh for longer, I prefer foil sealed products; you don't have to worry about them loosing taste so quickly.

              The packaging is Blue and a maroon/purple. The bags have the best before date on as well as pictures of the cookies on the front along with the name and branding.

              On the back of the bag is the important McVitie's Quality Guarantee which states if your biscuits have not arrived to you in perfect condition then you can return them to McVitie's with details of where you bought them. It doesn't tell you what McVitie's will then do, which begs the question, if your hungry would you send them back if they weren't perfect? I know I wouldn't, you could be waiting a while to get some perfect cookies as a replacement - if at all!

              On the back is also the ever so important nutritional information - see below.

              The Info - per 25 gram bag:
              Energy kJ - 514
              Kcal - 123
              Carbohydrates (of which sugars) - 7.6 grams
              Fat (of which sugars) - 5.8 grams
              Protein - 1.4 grams
              Fibre - 0.7 grams

              Great for all ages!
