I like to always have a few biscuits in our tin in the kitchen because they make good nibbles. Fox's are quite popular but they don't seem to last very long! Fox's is a brand that makes me think of a slightly higher class biscuit; they do some fancier stuff but even their more everyday snacks feel a tad more special than other brands. They're been going for over 150 years I believe, since first opening in 'Victorian Yorkshire', and they've become quite a prestigious, well-known and popular brand. What are Crunch Creams? Think Oreo; two circular biscuits with cream sandwiched in the middle. These come in chocolate and vanilla, both of which I've tried and really liked. The chocolate ones are actually choc biscuits with chocolate cream, so you get far more of a sweet, chocolate hit. They're called chocolate fudge because it has a fudge taste to the chocolate, which livens it up a little. The biscuit is crunchy without being too soft or too brittle, meaning it can have a good crunch or a melt-in-your-mouth quality if you're a tea-dipper. The cream is smooth and soft, and really adds a creamy edge to the biscuit, livening it up a bit and making it a little different to your average biscuit. The chocolate ones are a bit sweeter so a couple too many will be sickly, but it still has a good chocolate flavour. Each Chocolate Crunch Cream contains 79 calories and 4g of fat, which is only reasonably high when you think how small they seem and how quickly they disappear! I'd say two could satisfy the want for something biscuit-y and chocolate-y, so they make for a good snack. As they come in a packet they're not really practical for take-out snacks, which is a shame, but when kept at home they do really need a biscuit tin or similar because they don't seem to retain their freshness too well otherwise. These are suitable for vegetarians, though it should be noted they contain cows milk, soya/soybeans and wheat, with the potential of containing nuts. So, unless you have allergies, I would suggest giving these a try. They can be bought for around £1.09 (Tesco), though I've often seen them on offer, which is really the only time I tend to buy them. They're tasty and crunchy, and whilst they're not really anything 'wow' in terms of specialness, they don't really have anything I dislike about them as they're reasonably inoffensive.
I first spotted these in my local off license, ridiculously overpriced as you would expect so although I really wanted to try them I resisted the urge and waited until I hit the supermarket later that week. I was lucky enough to find them on offer in morrisons for 54p, the usual price being £1.08. They comes in the usual plastic wrapper with a little tab which you pull around to open it. This pulls right the way around so that the end of the packet comes off. I then turn this upside-down and put it back in the pack once I've removed a couple of biscuits, to keep the remainder fresh so that I don't have to empty them into a biscuit tin. There are 13 biscuits per pack and each one is just smaller than 2 inches in diameter. They're just over half an inch thick and are made up of 2 chocolate biscuits with a chocolate cream filling between them. The biscuits have a nice crunchy texture but they don't crumble too much when you bite into them so you don't need to worry about making a mess with crumbs. They're not particularly sweet which is just as well as the chocolate cream filling is quite sickly sweet. the two different chocolate flavours work well together and result in a lovely tasting biscuit which is neither too rich nor too sweet. I can't say I can detect any fudge flavour within them but it is a very nice chocolate biscuit. They can be great for dunking but you do have to be careful as if you dunk in your cuppa for too long the two biscuits tend to come apart which makes it difficult to handle! Each biscuit contains 79 calories, 6g sugar and 4g of fat, so it's just as well there are only 13 per pack as they are very addictive and I can easily get through the whole pack in one sitting! They're not the healthiest treat but if you have a generally healthy diet a few of these can't hurt as an indulgent little treat.
Fox's Chocolate Fudge Creams are in my opinion the best biscuits ever. They are usually on sale at Morrisons 2 for 1 or more commonly 46p a pack. They are placed second from top shelf with the premium brands. Fox's have recently changed their packaging , and it is now more modern and appropriate. They have used a chocolate colour pallette and have photos of the delicious biscuits just to tempt you even more. The plastic they use dosn't protect the biscuits well enough though and the first 2-3 are usually half crumbs . When eventually you open the packet you will smell a wonderful aroma of very sweet chocolate. The biscuits themselves consist of a good dollop of chocolate fudge cream, which is the perfect texture and has small surprise fudge pieces nestled inside. This is sandwiched in between two crunchy chocolate biscuits. They taste best dipped in coffee which compliments the flavours of the biscuit. Tea dosn't seem to have the same effect. When dunked in a hot drink the outer biscuit goes soggy while the inner still retains that perfect crunch. The fudge cream starts to melt and tastes even more scrummy. The one problem is its hard too eat only one, and each biscuit contains 74 calories. Despite the rubbish packaging and high calorific value this is one yummy biscuit that i'm sure not many people could resist , and for average 46-88p a 900g pack who wouldn't.
Foxs started out over 150 years ago in a small bakery in Yorkshire they state they are infatuated with quality and delighted in giving pleasure to their customers. I have just opened a pack of Foxs crunch choc fudge creams. The packet describes the biscuits as crunchy chocolate biscuits filled with yummy chocolatey cream. The packet has an easy opening tag with a red band that goes round opening the packet as you pull it. The biscuits contain 79 calories and 4g grams of fat each. They are suitable for vegetarians but contain Milk, soya,wheat, gluten and also may contain nuts. On opening the packet I was overwhelmed by the sweet chocolatey smell, the packet contained 13 sandwich biscuits, the appearance of the biscuit is appealing, crumbly chocolate biscuits filled with a lovely smooth very chocolatey looking cream, the flavor of the biscuits is lovely the biscuit part is chocolaty with a slightly salty taste, the cream part is rich and smoothly chocolatey. I would recommend these biscuits to all age groups but would prefer to say hide them away and indulge yourself, they really are a tasty treat.
Intro One of the first aisles I head for on our Saturday shop is the biscuit one. I love biscuits of pretty much any kind but in particular I like chocolate ones. Sometimes though I'm just not in the mood for chocolate well proper chocolate. That isn't too often though, but when it does happen I tend to opt for a cream biscuit. Fox's is a company whom I have come to admire since they fulfil both of my biscuit options with certain finesse. The quality of their products is always very high, and the pricing very reasonable, so I guess it's no surprise to find me buying the Chocolate Fudge Creams. Chocolate Fudge Creams The long brown coloured packet was already tempting before I noticed the price tag. 50p for a packet of cream biscuits, and chocolate flavoured ones at that. Straight into the shopping basket went a packet and also a packet of Golden creams, which I had already tried and found most delicious. The packaging here is quite nice and the brown colouring gives the anticipation a kick, chocolate is expected, and was duly supplied. I've not counted how many biscuits are in the packet but there are about 15 I reckon, hard to say since some have already been scoffed. They are standard sized biscuit at about two and a half inches in diameter and just over half an inch thick. They resemble brickwork in so much as they are or have little river cracks across their surface. They look very tempting. Coffee made time to taste these little treats. The first thing you notice is the crumbliness and crispness of the biscuit. It does look a nice light brown chocolate colour. The reasonable layer of cream is not too sweet and is quite chocolaty and compliments the biscuit perfectly. I would perhaps have liked the actual biscuit to have more of a chocolate taste, but I think this was intentional since I think this is where the fudge flavour is hidden. This isn't really noticeable until the two mix in the chewing, that's when it becomes chocolate fudge, however another bit make me think that the flavours are reversed and that in actual fact it is the cream that s fudge flavoured. None of this is helped by the fact that out of habit I dunked the first two biscuits, which obviously introduced a coffee taste. But Hey I don't care what's coming from where, they are bloody delicious and the whole chocolate fudge coffee thing is brilliant. None of the flavours are overwhelming and they all mingle perfectly and deliciously together and all this for 50p WHOOPEE. Summary Just a superb buy for 50p. A really tasty and delicious biscuit, which crumbles and teases the taste buds with fudge and chocolate, how good can it get, can it get any better. Well yes! Mr Fox if you are reading this review take each biscuit and make them into long oblongs cover then with real chocolate and you got yourself a sure fire winner, send any royalties to Donf18 at Ciao. If this idea fails to reach fruition then I am quite happy to continue indulging in this rather delicious fudgy thingy so it's no big deal just a thought really.
Biscuits are one of my favourite snacks and there is rarely a day that goes by without me enjoying a nice cup of tea and a couple of biccies. These Fox's biscuits caught my eye when I was in Asda as their range was on special offer and the biscuits were reduced to just 50p per 200g packet. The chocolate fudge flavour sounded tempting so I snapped up a pack. The biscuits come in a rather boring looking plastic wrapper. There is no easy open tab so I snipped my way into one end with a pair of scissors, but then had the problem of being unable to reseal it. The biscuits kept well enough for the few days the packet was open and did not go soft or lose any of their nice crunch. However, you may prefer to transfer them to a biscuit tin or some similar sort of container. Fox's are not a brand that I usually buy, for the ridiculous reason of I hate that panda...you know, the Italian American ageing gangster panda on TV that calls them "bis-quits". Oh he is annoying! But as I saw them stacked on the supermarket shelf I was won over by the flavour and cheap price so decided to give them a try. The biscuits are a muddy brown colour, and are formed by layering two biscuits together and filling the centre with a chocolate cream layer. This classic sandwich style biscuit can be a bit tricky to eat in a polite manner. I found that the majority of times I took a bite into one of these biscuits, sections would split and break off then tumble down over my clothes, onto the floor, or into my hair. Not very pleasant, annoying to have to clean up, and a waste of biscuit! It does indeed live up to it's name of a crunch cream, as the biscuits have a lovely crisp texture to them that is firm and crunchy but a bit too brittle. I wasn't overly impressed with the flavour. You can tell it's chocolate fudge and has a fair resemblance, but it's not quite rich and chocolately enough for my liking. You get a nice sweet taste in your mouth but it doesn't last long, and I find soon afterwards I feel like I want another. Not really because they're yummy but because they don't seem to be filling. If you can restrain yourself to one or two at a time then no problem, but I can see it being far too easy to just munch through the majority of the packet in one go. Sadly these are a terrible choice when it comes to dunking! The crumbly nature of the biscuit does not lend itself well to soaking up tea, and the cream centre dissolves quickly and dribbles out from between the biscuits making a right old mess. Stick with a traditional flat shaped biscuit to have with your tea or coffee break. Each biscuit contains 73 calories which is quite a high amount and can soon add up. They also have a high level of sugar and saturated fat, so best to eat in moderation and avoid if you're on a diet. These are average tasting biscuits that are good for a sweet kick, but not very filling or satisfying. I find them a bit too awkward and messy to eat, and don't think I would bother with them again. They are good enough for the price and I know for a fact that my other half loves these biscuits, but they don't really do it for me.

I sent my boyfriend to the shops to get something nice to eat and he came back with 'Fox's Chocolate Fudge Crunch Creams'. I was very pleased that he brought something back that was chocolatly! These biscuits are the best biscuits for chocoholics like me! If you enjoy chocolate then you will love these scrummy treats. The biscuits are made up of a layer of chocolate biscuit and then a layer of chocolate fudge cream in the middle and then another layer of crunchy chocolate biscuit. I thought that the biscuit part was very crunchy and could be a little messy at times. I also found that the flavour was quite rich and sweet but the fudge cream in the middle balanced out the richness of the biscuit. I think that this has to be the best biscuit I have tasted in a while as it is a very luxurious and rich biscuit that you can enjoy with or without a cuppa. I would definately recommend this biscuit to people who are chocolate fans or enjoy sweet biscuits. These biscuits are available in supermarkets and shops but I'm not sure what price they are as I didn't buy them (sorry). There are approximatly 14 biscuits in each packet and each biscuit contains: -79 calories - 6.1g of sugar -3.9g of fat - 2.3g of saturates -0.14g of slalt Although I would recommend these biscuits to people who enjoy sweet food, I would not encourage people to eat lots of these biscuits in one go as they are very high in fat and calories as you can see from the above information.
I was in Sainsbury's the other day looking for some kind of biscuit or cake when I caught sight of these. I had tried quite a few Fox's biscuits before and always been pleased with them and the sound of chocolate fudge ones sounded really nice if about as unhealthy as you can get but I thought I'd try it. There's probably about 15 biscuits in each pack and the packaging is a mixture of shades of brown with the familiar Fox's tag on the side. As always, the pictures look incredibly appetising. I think it was roughly £1 when I bought it. The first thing that hits you when you open these is the amazing smell. It's overwhelmingly chocolaty and creamy at the same time and makes you want to dive right in. As with the large majority of Fox's biscuits, they are sandwich style, that is, there is two biscuit bits which surround a layer of chocolate fudge cream. This can be a bit deceiving if you don't realise that as you will get two thirds less biscuits than the length of the packet might imply. Each biscuit has two layers of very chocolaty tasting biscuit which is crunchy and crumbles everywhere so watch out carpets. Inside there is a pale brown layer of chocolate fudge cream. Some may find this sickly as it is very sweet but the combination of textures, soft cream and hard biscuit, and combination of flavours really do it well. Some biscuits are rather dry and you always want to drink with it like Digestives but the cream layer really adds much needed moisture. I can definitely recommend putting these in your trolley. At 73 calories, they aren't low fat but certainly lower than I had expected and I think not much different from a Hobnob which surprised me. Yum....
As a weekend treat, I like to have some biscuits with my tea and toast on a morning, and these Crunch Creams have been my biscuit of choice for at least 6 months! I think Fox's biscuits are one of the best around (in the supermarket anyway!), so the quality is at a high level. I have also tried the Golden Crunch Creams version of this biscuit, which are also nice, but if you're like me and like a choccy biscuit, then this Chocolate Fudge Crunch variety really hits the spot! I think there is a Ginger Crunch version, which I haven't tried. This biscuit is in the format of a sandwich, with a nice creamy filling in between two biscuits, and is a nice size (not too big to hold for grown ups or children). The biscuit itself is slightly on the delicate side so if its been knocked about a bit in transit or in the shop, watch out for crumbles when you open the packet, although the bulk of the biscuit should remain intact. As the biscuit isn't too hard, its easy to eat, and if you want an extra bit of luxury, try (carefully) dipping it in tea, and quickly take a bite for a lovely melted chocolate delight! In terms of 'fudge' I don't particularly notice any fudge pieces within the chocolate filling, but I think they're probably well blended. The overall result is a nice sweet filling that isn't too sickly. You can easily eat a good number of these without feeling over-indulged! I won't go on about nutrition for this review, as if you're pigging out on biscuits, nutrition is the least of your worries. All I will say, in case you're interested, is that each biscuit is 73 calories! I don't think this puts me off though! The biscuits are suitable for vegetarians and include cow's milk, soya, wheat and gluten. The biscuits are about 80-90p ish, but sometimes you can find them on offer, so I usually stock up!!! I've seen them in Tesco and Morrisons, so you should be able to find them in most supermarkets, and some local stores.
Foxes fudge creams are currently my favourite biscuit, I buy a packet everytime I do my weekly shop. I first bought these as they were on offer at tesco for 46p and as far as I'm aware still are, otherwise you can buy these for 88p from all supermarkets or 2 for a £1 at some of the poundshops and they are well worth the money. They come in a brown packet which is easy to open and all relevant information is clearly stated on it. Each one consist of 2 crunchy biscuits sandwiched together with a dollop of fudge cream in the middle and there not stingy with it either. The biscuit has a really nice cocoa taste to it and isn't really sweet which compliments the fudge filling which is divine and has a really smooth texture about it. Overall this biscuit is delicious and I find it to be less sickly than the original foxes creams, however at 79 calories per biscuit I wouldn't advise eating too many at once CONTAINS:Cows milk, soya, wheat, gluten- Suitable for vegetarians This product is made in a factory using nuts.

I try really hard not to have a sweet tooth but sadly I do possess one! I adore biscuits and I find them really hard to resist so when I saw these in my local Tesco today I purchased a packet feeling disgusted with myself (I'd only just come out of the gym lol). The Packaging.... A fudgy coloured long cylinder shaped plastic wrapper with the biscuits lined up inside single file. On the front of the packet there are photographs of the biscuits and I'm told they are Fox's Creams 'Since 1853', Chocolate Fudge Crunch 'With Real fudge Pieces', the weight is stamped on (200g) as is the best before date and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there too. On the back of the wrapper I'm told a bit about Fox's and given contact details for them, nutritional information is fully listed, ingredients and allergy advice is given along with storage instructions and finally there is a bar-code on there. It's a nice packet, easy to open one end of and it's informative enough. The Biscuits.... Well I counted 14 biscuits in my packet and as soon as I opened the packet up I was greeted by a luxurious smelling sweet fudge aroma! To look at them the biscuits are a light brown colour, round, rough on the outside, smooth on the inside with a huge dollop of fudge and chocolate cream. The biscuits are like sandwiches so you sort of have two biccies in one sandwiched together by the said cream! Tastewise they are really crunchy, only flake a little bit, are not greasy (or dry) but have a slightly baked feel to them but are incredibly sweet. However do not dunk them! Not at all! They are really delicate and I couldn't get one to dunk and not flop! lol. You have been warned! The main sweetness I feel comes from the fudge cream (inside the biscuits). It's delicious and smooth apart from pieces of crystallized fudge that melt in the mouth scattered throughout it but it really is very sickly indeed after eating a few biccies! The biscuits themselves although are sweet because they are crunchy, you don't notice the sweetness quite so much! Overall.... A high quality biscuit with a hint of chocolate. I didn't feel the biscuits were chocolate flavoured at all however the fudge centre was but really for me they weren't all that chocolaty. They are a lovely treat though, just don't indulge in to many at a whopping 73 calories a go! Allergy Advice.... Contains: Cows Milk, Soya, Wheat, Gluten. This product is made in a factory that uses nut ingredients. Nutritional Information....Per Biscuit.... Calories: 73 Sugar: 5.6g Fat: 3.7g Saturates: 2.1g Salt: 0.15g Available in all Supermarkets etc costing about 88p at the time of writing this review I purchased my packet in Tesco and on special offer for 44p.
After reading a review by carlmcq about these I just had to try them. I've tried the original Crunch Creams and he Ginger ones, but didn't know anything about these. So when in Tesco last night I got a pack. What made it better was that they were half price, so only cost 44p - bargain. These are made by Fox's and come in a 200g pack. The pack is quite long and sort of thin. Only the bare minimum packaging on these, and the wrapper sticks to the Biscuits. I don't mind this, as don't see the need for loads of packaging. The pack is brown and the writing is in different bright colours against a cream coloured tag thing onto the pack. There is a picture of the Biscuits on the pack, but since these are Brown and against a Brown background then they don't stick out that well. On the front it helpfully tells you the nutritional information per Biscuit. They have 73 calories 5.6g sugars 3.7g fat 2.1g saturates 0.15g salt Now to the Biscuits, how are they? They are tasty. They are 2 circles of Crunchy, a little Oaty and Salty Biscuits and they are stuck together with hard Fidge Cream. On the pack it says that the Cream contains real Fudge pieces, but I couldn''t taste anything overly Fudge-y. I could taste a Cocoa type taste, but it wasn't overly strong, and just a nice flavouring. These are a step up from the original ones. They are a little bit more-ish and just really nice. I ate the pack in 2 sittings, which was really easy to do, even though you thought that the next Biscuit was the last one, I always reached for another one. I will buy these again.
I think by now you'll have realised I've got somewhat of a sweet tooth...so ladies and gentlemen, here is Fox's Chocolate Fudge Crunch Creams. Yum! For those who've been lucky enough to try these, then I may as well end this review now as there can be no way you can't like these! Those who don't like them shame on you! Those who haven't tried them, you're missing out, trust me... The packaging comes in the normal biscuit wrapping, suitable for a biscuit barrel as there's no seal to prevent air making the biscuits soft, and in a similar design to other Fox's products. These come in a dark brown colour to match the chocolate fudge taste. Like with Fox's products such as cream crunch and ginger cream crunch, they're sandwich-style biscuits that many people enjoy pulling apart and licking the sandwich filling, myself included. The filling is extremely sweet and hits the spot in being described as chocolate fudge, with tiny vanilla fudge pieces mashed up inside...although I must admit they're hard to find, but they must be in there! The biscuit can be quite crumbly, so take note when dunking into a cup of tea or eating near a surface that crumbs shouldn't fall on! Oh, and obviously some people will believe they're too sweet but not me, of course! As per usual with my delicious food reviews, here's the nutritional information per biscuit, as those with a diet in mind will need to take heed, as they're not entirely good for you... Calories - 73 (4% of Recommended Daily Allowance) Protein - 0.7g (2%) Carbohydrates - 9.2g (4%) Fat - 3.7g (5%) Of which Saturates - 2.1g (11%) Fibre - 0.3g (1%) Sodium - 0.06g (2%) They are suitable for vegetarians but do include milk, soya, wheat and gluten so best to bare that in mind for those unfortunate to suffer allergies. Now, I know some people will prefer the traditional creams or and ginger creams, and in all honesty they are also delicious. Fox's certainly seem to know how to make a good biscuit! Oh, and the best bit? As I type, they're half price in Tesco. Get involved...
I'm a big fan of both Fox's ginger crunch creams and their golden crunch creams, so when I saw they were on a buy one get one free offer recently I was planning to get one of each. That was until I saw they also now make chocolate fudge crunch creams. I suspect these have probably been around for years and I've just never noticed them, as there was nothing on the packet to indicate that they're a new product, but I decided it was about time I tried them. The biscuits come in a dark brown packet (must have changed since the picture above), with a picture of the finished biscuit on the front and are easy to open, thanks to the addition of a red tear-off strip. Aside from the colour, the biscuits look like any other varieties of crunch creams. You have two chocolate biscuits sandwiched together with a cream filling - this time a chocolate cream filling, rather than the usual plain cream you get with the other varieties. It does say on the packet that these biscuits contain real fudge pieces. I fail to see where these are, unless they are mixed into the cream centre? There certainly didn't seem to be any fudge pieces in the biscuits themselves. The biscuits (as the name suggests) are very crunchy, and have a buttery chocolate flavour to them. I thought the flavour of the biscuits was OK, although they were quite plain and didn't have a very strong flavour and I must admit they weren't my favourite biscuits ever. I think what really makes the crunch creams special is the layer of cream in the centre. It's a smooth, buttery cream and has a very indulgent creamy chocolate fudge taste to it. The contrast of the crunchy biscuit with the smooth cream centre goes well and the overall taste is very pleasant. I do find I can only eat one or two of these at a time, as they become a little sickly, although really this is a good thing - for my waistline, anyway! Nutritional Info (Per biscuit): 73 calories 0.7g protein 9.2g carbs 3.7g fat A 200g packet of these biscuits costs 87p from ASDA. They are suitable for vegetarians but contain milk, soya, wheat and gluten. On the whole, these were nice biscuits, but I don't think they're as nice as the ginger or golden flavours. Although the chocolate fudge cream centre is lovely, the actual chocolate biscuit part lets it down a little bit which is why I'm knocking a star off. Still if you're a fan of crunch creams, I'd still recommend trying them.
Fox's do make some really nice biscuits that are also very affordable as well, these retail for sixty five pence a packet and you get about a dozen biscuits in a pack, they are not the biggest biscuits to be had but they make up for the relative small size in term of quality of product and taste. The other downside to them is that you do seem to get a few broken ones inevery pack. These have a very chocolaty taste to them as they combine two chocolate flavoured outer biscuits with a centre filing of milk chocolate fondant with small bits of fudge in it. These are very moorish biscuits and while not great for dunking as they break up easy they have a nice rich taste that is quite sweet. They are also very crunchy as well with the outer layers of biscuit, these have a rough tecture to them however they are also quite britle and these biscuits do generate a lot of crumbs. It is worth eating them together rather than breaking off the biscuits and licking the fondant icing out as on their own the biscuits are a bit bland, they need the added sweetness of the fillling to enhance the flavour. Overall another winner from Fox's and a nice biscuit.
