Fox's Chocolate Viennese
Advantages: Look yummy, Smell yummy, taste yummy!
Disadvantages: Too many calories to eat on a daily basis without feeling guilty!
Biscuits and cakes are my Achilles heal however, having two small children under the age of 5, I often find myself buying these products and our cupboards are often stocked with these tempting little treats. I usually tend to buy biscuits for the children that I don't particularly like, such as Ginger nuts, as I know that I won't be tempted to eat them, which is better for my waistline. That being said, I do like to treat myself every now and then.
My most recent purchase of Fox's Melts was four days ago during a brief trip to Iceland (I only went in to get bread :-/ ) where I ended up buying some extra little goodies, including Fox's Viennese melts. At the time they were on special offer costing just £1.50 for two packets.
The company behind Fox's biscuits were established in 1853. They have many varieties of biscuits including my favourite, Fox's Viennese Biscuits. Fox's Viennese melts are part of Fox's indulgence range. This is portrayed within the packaging as well as the biscuit's themselves.
The biscuits are presented in a rectangular shaped packet, unlike that of standard round biscuits. This instantly makes the biscuits seem more unique and expensive. The packet is luxuriously coloured with velvety purple and rich gold. An inviting image of the biscuit is displayed, along with the brand name 'Fox's' and some background information 'Established since 1853'. I feel this statement provides assurance that this is a brand that can be trusted. The following description of the product is also displayed 'Luxurious buttery biscuits with real chocolate centre'.
Everything about the packaging screams luxury, even down to the calorie content, for each heavenly biscuit contains 79 calories! Yes, 79 that is calories per biscuit, making this an indulgent choice that you wouldn't necessarily eat on a daily basis.
Nutritional, content information is displayed on the rear of the packaging, along with storage guidelines. A brief summary is that the biscuits are Suitable for vegetarians and are also made in a nut free factory. Each biscuit contains wheat, soya, gluten, cow's milk and eggs (no good for vegans then!) and that once opened, biscuits should be placed in an air tight container to preserve freshness.
The best part - the biscuits!!!
The biscuits are basically two delicious Viennese fingers, moulded together by a thick layer of milk chocolate in
the centre. They have a lovely light golden colouring with the milk chocolate slightly spilling out of the centre. Each biscuit has a fresh aroma, almost as though it has just been freshly baked! Heavenly!
The Viennese melts certainly live up to their description, as they do literally melt in your mouth...MMMmmmmm!
I cannot emphasis how yummy they are in words; you will just have to trust me and try them for yourselves!
As far as I am concerned Fox's Viennese biscuit are the VIP's of the biscuit world. I love short bread and milk chocolate, so these biscuits are a perfect choice for me; and if I had to choose my favourite biscuit, these would defiantly be top of my list. In fact; I am slightly embarrassed to admit that myself and the kids consumed the two packets within three days, myself eating most of them :-/
Due to the calorie content and sheer addictiveness of these biscuits I would not buy them on a weekly basis, and only treat myself to these once in a while.
Summary: Best biscuits around!
