Jammie Dodgers are everyone's favourite biscuit right?
Jammie Dodgers are a British made biscuit, made from shortbread and raspberry jam. They are made by Burtons Foods. Jammie Dodgers are the original in the dodgers family, however there are many varieties which include, Lively lemon. jam n' custard, toffee dodgers and choccie dodgers. There are also minis and snack bars. Limited editions have been avaiable at different times including Vanilla and a vimto flavour. I have tried a few flavours and I have to say Jammie Dodgers are the original and best.
Jammie Dodgers are always prsent in my house these days, after buying them for a change once, my son fell in love with them. Now every time I go shopping its "Don't forget the jammie bics mum"
I have tried buying supermarkets own cheaper versions but these never go down as well, as they just don't have the same quality taste. I also like to dunk them in my tea, that very British thing we all seem to do, and I find that Jammie Dodgers always fair better than most in the dunk test.
I tend to buy the twin packs, that are 300g, as I find this tends to be better value for money, and I can usually pick these up for around £1.
The packaging on the twin packs is very similar to the normal 150g packs. The wrapper is bright red in colour, and the Jammie dodger logo jumps out at you in a bright yellow colour, or sometimes its in a duller cream colour, but I find this standsout against the red just as well. I find the packaging leaps out at you on the shelf and can easily be spotted in the crambed biscuit aisle of a supermarket. There is also a picture of a Jammie Dodger on the front so there is no mistaken them. There also happens to be a small nutritional guide which shows what each biscuit provides and the percentage of a child's daily guideline amout.
On the reverse of the packet, there is an igredients list, a more detailed nutritional guide, Burtons foods contact information, allergy advice, storage information and how to recycle. There is also a check list
- No artificial colours
-No artificial flavours
-Suitable for vegetarians
-No hydrogenated fats
-Non GM ingredients
The syaing "Full of mischief but no artificial additives" appears a couple of times on the wrapper.
There is also a biscuit description which is as follows
'Stretchy raspberry flavour jam splodged at the heart of two yummy shortcake biscuits.'
Inside the wrapper the biscuits come in carboards trays. The biscuits are piled in stacks of two high. I tend to just open up the packet and place in a biscuit tin, as the biscuits further down the tray can be tricky to get out, unless you tip the packet up.
The biscuits have their own unquie look. Two round shortcake biscuits are sandwiched together with jam. There is a heart shaped hole in the top biscuit where the jam shows through. There is also an embossed splat shape around the jam heart.
The design of the biscuit help seperate it from other biscuits with a similar style. The design helps make the biscuits more appealing, to both adults and children. This helps them to be perfect for a number of occassions, such as childrens parties, cups of tea and for kids and adults on play dates.
Jammie dodgers have a much higher quality taste than copy cat style jammie biscuits. The shortcake biscuits have a buttery, sweet shortbread taste, but without such a crumbly texture, that shortbread itself has. They are also sweet but without being sickly, which always results in me eating more than one. The biscuit has a crunch to it, but without it falling apart. They do make a little bit of a mess but not as much as some other biscuits, I think it has more to do with who is eating the biscuit than the biscuit itself when it comes to mess. My son can't sneak a biscuit without me knowing as he always leaves a crumb mess. I love the taste of the jammie centre, although not quite to the standard of my mother in law's homemade jam, it doesn't have that cheap jam taste to it, and is a million times better than the cheaper jam alternative biscuits that have this jam bit covered in more sugar. The jam centre gives the biscuit a chewy feel, which I personally really enjoy. Much better than a boring rich tea. A biscuit with a bit of fun and good taste.
Overall a tasty biscuit that can be picked up just about anywhere at a resonable price. Jammie Dodgers are suitable for the whole family, and lots of different occassions, from lunchboxes, tea dunking, childrens parties and more.
