“ Brand: Asda / Type: Biscuits „
Choc Chip Digestives? Bit odd I thin. Never seen anything like these before, but they were worth a try. They were in a 300g pack and I think they cost 76p.
The pack was alright and eye catching enough. The wrapper was qutie tight wrapped around the biscuits, and because I didn't open them so wide then a few of the bicuits crumbled at the sides at the start, but nothing wrong with opening them that bit more.
Didn't count the Biscuits, but would say there was about 16 in the pack. This is just a guess though.
The Biscuits were round, quite wide and thick enough. The covering of Milk Chocolate on 1 side was a good thick covering and on the uncovered side you seen that these were a golden brown colour and you could see the Chocolate Chip's mixed through. There wasn't too many Chips, just a scattering but Chips nonetheless.
These were alright. Although you could taste Chocolate with the Chocolate covered side I didn't think that you would be able to taste the Chocolate Chips, but you can. They were a little bit more Plain Chocolate than the Chocolate covered part on the Biscuit, so you could taste it that bit.
These were nice and I would buy them again, but there are nicer Biscuits out there for the money.
Asda chocolate chip digestives are one of my favourite biscuits. They are the first of this kind I have seen and I was pleasantly suprised. The biscuits are of course available from Asda and they cost 77p for 300g. They come in a purple packet which shows an image of the biscuits on the front. They are suitable for vegetarians.
The biscuit itself is quite large for a biscuit and is about 2 inches wide. There are a good amount of chocolate chips in the biscuit (11%). The biscuits are slightly lighter in colour than I would say your average digestive is and they taste quite different. The biscuit is of good quality, tastes creamy and is quite crumbly. The chocolate chips are again creamy, are made of thick chocolate and melt in the mouth.
In each biscuit there are 69 calories, 3.3g of fat (1.6g that saturates) and 0.6g of salt. If you are on the weight watchers plan they have a points value of 1.5 each.
I really enjoy these biscuits, as do all of my family. They are very moreish and easy to eat and have both a lovely flavour and texture. I would recommend these biscuits to anyone who has a sweet tooth. The packet is of a good size and can easily satisfy a whole family for a week. At 77p I think they are a bargain and I always put a packet in my trolley.
Along with everyone else at this present time I am on the lookout for a bargain, whether that be a piece of electrical goods at a knockdown price or my normal branded food item reduced to clear.
These days I do tend to gravitate towards the "cheaper" branded food items, as Asda is the supermarket of choice this brand is normally smart price.
After being reasonably impressed with moat of the items in this range I decided to try the biscuits out, now most of them are quite nice but after trying the chocolate chip cookies and being disappointed I knew I would have to spend a little more to get a biscuit we would enjoy eating.
The biscuits i will now review are - "Asda chocolate chip digestives"
The first thing that drew me was he fact that these have been reduced down by 20p a packed, not a huge amount but enough to whet the appetite so to speak!
The packet itself is a rather fetching and eye catching purple colour, and the fact that this packet of choc chip cookies is twice the size of most of the other packets on that shelf brings the pig out of me!
As mentioned in the title these also have the added benefit of being digestives as well, ok so what we have here is a chocolate hit that has the dunkability factor....ok, sold!
When opening the packet you are initial hit by the sweet oat scent, at that moment though there is no smell of chocolate.
The biscuit itself is the same size as a bog standard digestive, but is reminiscent of a sweetmeal biscuit that you could get at one time.
The biscuit is a light brown colour with the chocolate chips being visible, and there is a rather high amount in there too!
The biscuit has a nice bite to it, not overly crunchy but more crumbly than soft, the taste again is sublime. The biscuit is sweet but the sweetness is offset by the oats in the biscuit.
Finally you get the chocolate hit, I am assuming that the chips themselves are milk chocolate, there is no bitter aftertaste to them to suggest dark chocolate, and they are obviously not white.
The chips are good quality chocolate, and don't leave a greasy film on your tongue like some cheaper choc chip cookies do.
The nutritional information is as follows -
3.8g of which sugars,
1.6g of which saturates
There are some warnings on this pack, these being that this product contains milk, wheat, oats and soya, and there is the chance that this could contain nuts and/or seeds.
As mentioned earlier this is an Asda own branded product, so will only be available to buy there these cost around 80p a pack (this is with the 20p off offer), considering that there is 500g of biscuits in the pack (around 20-25 biscuits), that is an exceptional price for the quality.
