      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good quality and cheap own brand

      Introduction
      ==========

      Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and in the residential home where I work wheat biscuits are very popular to keep the old dears bowels open. Anyway after serving so many at work I decided that they would make a nice change for my breakfast and in an aim to claim as many dividend points as possible ready for the November payout, I bought the Co-op Version.

      The Product
      ==========

      The product comes in a yellow box, with a nice picture of the whole-wheat biscuits on the front with milk about to splash onto them. The box I am reviewing has 24 whole-wheat biscuits and cost me £1.05. You can also buy 48 whole-wheat biscuits at a cost of £1.99.

      Inside the box are two white packets each containing 12 whole-wheat biscuits. Upon opening one of these white packets I viewed the whole-wheat biscuits to check that they looked, as they should, which they did. I took a sniff but I could not smell anything.

      I took one of the biscuits out of the packet and the edges began to crumble in my hand, so they were not going to be too hard. I placed the biscuit in a bowl and added some milk and a small amount of sugar, I know I should not have added the sugar but I need just a tiny bit.

      The Taste
      ========

      Now I left the biscuit to absorb the milk for a minute as I do not like to just dive while the biscuit is still dry, this is my own preference so prepare it how you like. Armed with a spoon I scoop up the small portion of the whole-wheat biscuit that has absorbed the milk, and pop it into my mouth.

      You can definitely taste the wheat and it is not too bitty either I don't know whether that is because of the biscuits or the milk that it has soaked up. There is a sweet taste but that might just be the tiny bit of sugar I added to it. Anyway it has a very nice taste overall.

      So after finishing this biscuit I decided, in the interest of producing an accurate review, that I would have another without the sugar this time. The second biscuit tastes just as wheaty but not as sweet, no don't get me wrong there is still a sweet taste just not as much as when I added sugar to it.

      Nutritional Information
      ==================

      Now I am really going to enjoy this part, normally when I am reviewing food products it is normally chocolate or something as equally unhealthy and I cringe when it comes to calories and fat content.

      There is 125 calories, 0.8g of fat and 0.2g of salt per 2 whole-wheat biscuit. This is without any milk or sugar. Even with 125ml whole milk and two biscuits there is 210 calories, which is still very healthy, as I have now discovered that I like these without sugar.

      This product is suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans and recommended for women for are pregnant or planning a pregnancy as these biscuits have added folic acid.

      Overall
      ======

      I used to eat a lot of Weetabix when I was younger and this was my first attempt at trying a different brand. I am very pleased I did as I think these have a better taste than the brands.

      These are very nice I am not going to go over board on these because at the end of the day this is a cereal but sometimes I prefer this as an evening snack rather than for breakfast.

      There is a nice recipe on the side of the box as to have to make Rum and Raisin Cheesecake, I would have never thought of using these types of biscuits for a cheesecake base, I am not keen on rum and raisin but I will try using them as a base on another type.

      The whole-wheat biscuits are very good value for money, so you can save some pennies without cutting on the quality plus, as these are Co-op brand, you will also earn Dividend points which will be turned into pounds. I will be buying these again.

      Thanks for reading.
