“ Brand: Asda / Type: Biscuits „
After reviewing my favourite cakes earlier I thought it was fitting to review my favourite biscuits too! These are the 'nice' biscuits that are a popular brand, so much so that supermarkets have got wind of this and decided to make their own versions of the biscuit.
My favourite supermarket brand of Nice biscuits is Smart Price from Asda.
The biscuits come in a simple, plain, white wrapper with green writing which is typical of the smart price products that Asda offer.
The biscuits themselves are rectangular in shape and have desiccated coconut integrate in, and on top of, the biscuit which is crunchy yet crumbly. They have a perforated edge which makes them look fancy, too. There is sugar and desiccated coconut on top which is very sweet and highly addictive!
There is 200g worth of nice biscuits in one packet which works out at about 20 biscuits per packet which I usually go through in one sitting! They are also perfect with a cup of tea for dunking or to just accompany your drink.
The ingredients are as follows: Wheat Flour , Sugar , Vegetable Oil , Desiccated Coconut (3%) , Glucose Syrup , Wheat Starch , Raising Agents (Ammonium Carbonates, Sodium Bicarbonate) , Skimmed Milk Powder , Salt , Flavourings.
I pay 36p each time I want to indulge in my favourite biscuit treat. That's right-just 36p! They are a very inexpensive yet highly addictive treat. I think these biscuits would be suitable to a lot of people's tastes (even if you don't like coconut-like me!)
To sum up, these are a great biscuit at such a low cost they are a high quality, classical biscuit that will never cease to put a smile on my face when I see an unopened packet sitting in my cupboard!
Due to financial difficulties in recent months i have been forced to watch the pennies even more so than before, i have always liked a good bargain and in my opinion Asda smart priced as always proved this and always purchase this brand where ever possible as they offer the best value for money without compromising on the taste, this has proved no exception with the smart price Nice Biscuits in my opinion they got the name right (NICE). I have tried most other makers of biscuits but find that they all taste the same despite the difference in the prices; I will from now on be purchasing these ones as i now believe with the other brands you are paying for the label, instead of the biscuit itself. The packaging is somewhat basic and plain which is probably one of the reasons they can sell them for a lot less than the other brands as you don't purchase an item to look at the packaging do you.
However in my opinion I find that these biscuits are best experienced dunked in a cup of tea however this causes another dilemma as they can prove hard to resist another and can with the help of my 2 children and husband devour a pack in no time what so ever.
I would recommend these biscuits any custard cream lover who likes a nice biscuit that dunks well.
I love Nice biscuits, so when I saw Asda are knocking them out for only 30pence I had to try them. Nice biscuits are a sweet biscuit with a slight hint of coconut, they are perfect with a coffee or any time when you are feeling a little peckish.
The packaging is, as always, very plain, thin white plastic with the Smart Price green stripe along the bottom. In green writing there is Nice Biscuits written on the front. On the back of the packet are the ingredients & calorie content.
For 30pence you get a 200gram pack which contains probably 20 biscuits. The appearance of the actual biscuit is exactly the same as any other Nice I have ever had, it is light brown In colour, plenty of sugar dusted onto it and has a nice sweet coconut smell. They even have Nice written on the front. Considering the packaging is so thin, the biscuits were all intact and there was no crumbs left in the bottom of the packet. One thing that I notice with all Smart Price products, is they don't come with an 'open here' tab, so opening the packet can be a little bit time consuming, best just to get a knife and cut it open.
The taste, again, was exactly the same as any other I had tried, They were lovely and crunch, were plenty sweet enough and you could definitely taste the coconut flavour was there. They are very moreish and its easy to eat the whole pack without realising.
Each biscuit only has 39calories, so you can eat two or three without feeling too guilty. There is 2grams of fat in each one which is also on the low side for such a tasty treat.
I would happily serve these to anyone, once they are in the biscuit tin, nobody would ever know the difference. Excellent product.
I bought a packet of these biscuits after reading a review on here and have been pleasantly surprised by how good these taste.
The packaging is very basic but for 32p I wasn't expecting a lovely looking packet. There was only one size available and for 32p you got 200g of biscuit.
These biscuits are quite thin and are rectangular in shape. They have the word NICE imprinted on it and a scattering of sugar on top. These are very easy to bite into and crumble in your mouth. You can't see them but these also contain a scattering of dessicated coconut which I think improves the taste of these biscuits. The coconut taste is not obvious at first because there isn't a lot of it in each biscuit and I only realised there was coconut in it after I had eaten the biscuit and was left with a few bits of dessicated coconut still left to swallow. The biscuits are very sweet, tasty, soft to eat and because they are so thin I find myself reaching for a few more. The biscuit does not stick to your mouth and is easily washed down with a cup of tea.
The quality of these biscuits are good too. They came out of the pack all intact and held their shape when I put them into the biscuit tin. As they are a bit on the thin side I think you can tell they are from a value range but it really doesn't matter as these are very tasty and don't taste of cheap biscuit.
Overall a tasty treat and worth trying.
Nice Biscuits are a delicious type of popular biscuit that always go exceptionally well with teas, coffees and various other heated dairy beverages. Ideal for dunking and for gnawing on seperately, they are hugely popular the UK wide.
Essentially a sandwich of biscuit and cream, they have a definitely disctinctive coconut taste, what with coconuts being a minor ingredient in the biscuits. They never seem to go stale, and the packaging is excellent, particularly in the Asda Price variety which I am specifically talking about at the moment.
They are aesthetically pleasing with a nice design on the biccies themselves, and are much cheaper than branded varieties of Nice biscuits, and are even cheaper than Tesco Value Nice Biscuits, and believe me, they all taste the same, all of them. There's absolutely no difference and no shame in buying Asda Smart Price when it comes to biscuit products such as this.
They are very sweet and sugary and if I'm honest, just that little bit addictive. I find if you buy a packet you have to be careful not to sit and munch through the whole thing in one sitting with a nice cup of tea or coffee in your hand. These are absolutely delicious, very sweet, very sugary, and perhaps most importantly, very very cheap. I strongly recommend these biscuits to anyone who is looking for a way to get an extra kick to their cuppa. Definitely worth buying.
These Nice biscuits are the business, they're only 30p for a 200g pack and are just as good as any other Nice biscuits! My mum always buys a couple of packs when we go to Asda because it's a cheap way of keeping the biscuit tin full and we all like them anyway.
They smell of coconut and sugar as soon as you open the pack and look nice too, there are hardly ever any broken in the pack and when there are they're the end few and that doesn't matter! lol
The biscuits are nice and crunchy, there's quite a bit of sugar on top of the biscuits and that makes them nice and sweet as soon as you bite into them. They're not majorly dry but aren't exactly what you'd call a moist biscuit, that's how they're supposed to be though and I do reckon the texture of these biscuits is just right for a Nice biscuit.
I love the coconut flavour of these biscuits and the way you can feel the dessicated coconut in them, we had some from Tesco the other week and the feel of the biscuit was proper boring because there wasn't any bits of coconut to get stuck in your teeth! lol That's making these sound a bit better than they are though because these deffo aren't jam packed with dessicated coconut but there's more than in most cheapo brands.
They're a bit too thin for dunking in coffee because they usually drop into your cup, most Nice biscuits do that though so you can't moan much about these Asda ones! You can get away with a quick dunk and they soak the flavour up so have it with a strong sweet coffee and you'll get wicked layers of different flavours.
These are bargain biscuits, they taste yummy and have got a wicked texture. They;re so yummy to eat that even though I don't have them all the time I get a mad urge on them and will munch 6 in a row, there's nothing sickly about them even though they're sooooo sweet and sugary.
Recommended.... 30p a pack!!!
While doing a shop in Asda recently I decided to buy some of their Smart Price biscuits to try. I refuse to spend a fortune on biscuits as I don't eat them much myself, although when they visit for the weekend my granddaughter's can munch their way through several packets. It's not a cost issue, not really as I would happily spend whatever it takes to keep the girls' happy - but my reasoning is that generally a biscuit is a biscuit so why spend £1 a packet when I can get the same thing (albeit in cheaper packaging) for much less.
Nice biscuits are a perfect example. My local corner shop sells packets for 89p, I forget the brand now but it's something like Hills or Burtons who make these. Yet in Asda I paid only 29p for this identical sized packet of biscuits and I must admit they are just as good as the leading brands.
The biscuits have a lovely crumbly texture which melt in my mouth almost as soon as I've bitten a piece off. The flavour of coconut is not as strong in these as other brands but I can still taste it beneath the general sweetness of the biscuit. I like the fact that these Smart Price Nice biscuits don't have as much sugar on the top as other brands of Nice as this makes the biscuit itself seem much more buttery in texture as it's not constantly competing with the bittiness of the added sugar.
These are absolutely no good for dunking into a cup of tea. As soon as the hot liquid touches the biscuit it will begin to crack and if you're not very careful you'll end up with half a soggy Nice in your cuppa. My granddaughter dips hers in milk with moderately more success, although she really isn't concerned if at the end she has a pile of biscuit in her glass and will still happily drink all the milk up!
I cannot complain at all for the price. Yes, there are differences between these and more expensive brands but the main one is the fact that the coconut is so much more subtle - however, these biscuits are delicious in their own right so the lack of this particular flavour doesn't spoil it in the slightest for me.
I haven't got the packet anymore but if I remember correctly each biscuit contains around 40 calories, which is about average for this particular type of biscuit. They are incredibly moreish though so be aware that this is 40 calories PER BISCUIT and not a one off figure for you to take into account however many biscuits you eat!
"Nice" are one of the more basic variety of biscuits, simply one white biscuit slice with 'nice' written on the top, and coated with sugar crystals. they are generally eaten alongside tea and coffee. In this case, they are not suited to be 'dunked,' as they break incredibly easy when wet.
At ASDA, you'll usually pay around 30p a packet, as opposed to the extortionate One pound you can expect at any convenience shop. This is a product definitely worth buying from ASDA, as there is absolutely no
discernible difference in quality whatsoever, with it being such a basic product. The only drawback here is of course, the unattractive packaging, which may offend the snootier of your friends, but this issue can be easily remedied by simply displaying them in a bowl, or on an attractive plate.
These biscuits could be considered moreish, if only they weren't so dry, so they only really work as an occasional treat or with a hot beverage.
I highly recommend these biscuits to any regular drinkers of tea or coffee. Nutritional Information follows:

MMmmm these nice biscuits are yummy.
I love nice biscuits. As i child i never pronounced them right, and i have and probably always will love them.
Nice biscuits are thin biscuits with a sugary coating. They break very easily so either dunk two at a time, or dunk very quickly, or your'll lose them in the bottom of your tea! Yuck!
I normally buy the expensive nice biscuits which are about £1, but i saw them smart price ones in asda for about 30pence, and i though, oh i'll give them a try.
I wasnt expecting much, as they were so cheap, but i have to say i was mightly impressed. They were just as good as the expensive one, there wasnt any less sugar on them, they were excellent in fact.
I now always buy these biscuits, as they are a third of the price and taste just the same.
I think the packaging is abit naf, but dont let that put you off, as the biscuits inside are just like the expensive ones.
I'd can throughly recommend these biscuits.
