Fox's Chocolate Viennese
Advantages: Biscuits and chocolate, mmmmmmm
Disadvantages: Price and high in fat
It's Thursday morning and I'm tired and grumpy, following an emotional showdown the night before with an ex-boyfriend. Last thing a girl needs is to work. However, no duvet day for me; instead I shall have to cheer myself up with biscuits.
Typically, the work biscuit tin was empty so I tottered off downstairs to the shop to see what I could find. Wanting something a bit different from the bog-standard digestives or rich teas, my eyes landed on Fox's Viennese Chocolate. Perfect. I hadn't had these for ages, they look classy, they have chocolate and I don't have to share as there is no one else in the office.
The packaging is different to that shown in the picture. The biscuits themselves come in a tray, which is great for the occasions when you don't have a tin to hand. I hate wrapping biscuits up in their packets. The tray also helps to protect the biscuits from breaking - another thing I hate. The outer packaging is light brown and purple, making the biscuits look luxurious and expensive compared to other options. The nutritional information for each biscuit is clearly labelled on the bottom corner, along with the best before date and weight. The only thing not labelled is the fact that they are suitable for veggies - this is indicated on the back of the packet.
Now, onto the most important thing - the biscuit! These biscuits are a layer of thick, milk chocolate, sandwich between two buttery biscuits. The chocolate is lovely - I am not typically a fan of milk chocolate as I believe too much milk and sugar can ruin the taste, but this is perfect as not too creamy. The biscuits are buttery and crunchy and perfectly complement the chocolate. They are not too crumbly, which means more biscuit ends up in the mouth and not on the desk. They also withstand the 'dunking' test well, remaining perfectly in tact, as I have just tested for the sake of this review. In fact, my only real gripe with these biscuits is that they are just not big enough and I have eaten two already.
These biscuits are fairly expensive - I played £1.59 for a 150g packet which equates to 10 fairly small biscuits. Having said that, they are a real treat and definitely a biscuit for when you need cheering up and a digestive is just not cutting it.
Each biscuits contains 79 calories and 4.6g of fat which seems pretty high. In fact, that would mean according to the stats I have just consumed 14% of my daily fat allowance in just two small biscuits. Good thing I have a salad for lunch!
Summary: An expensive biscuit, but worth treating yourself
