Advantages: taste, milkshake
Disadvantages: price, addictive!
A very tasty biscuit that can be used in many ways. They are not cheap coming in at £2.00 for a 150g pack (8 biscuits) which may not seem like much but when compared to some of my other favorites such as chocolate digestives (although not on the same level of quality they are still great) which cost £1.00 for a 500g pack you can really see the arguable lack of value for money.
The reason I say the arguable lack of value for money is because, yes you only get 8 biscuits compared to around 20 and you have to pay double the price, but you will not find many other biscuits of this quality for any price. They are crispy but at the same time have a buttery soft texture with a smooth chocolate filling. They are a class above any other biscuit I have ever tried.
However with all of this comes a minor downfall with the nutritional information. With new laws all the basic nutritional information has to be visibly displayed on the front of all packaging. The packaging in my area seems to be different to the picture that is displayed as the product image. It comes in a premium looking package made up of two shades of brown as a background and a two shades of purple as the main part in the middle. On the purple part is a picture of the biscuits, the logo and a brief description. This is very attractive packaging, and although the packaging doesn't stand out massively, the logo and brand certainly do. The logo is in colorful letters drawing your attention and the reputation of the brand is very good and therefore stands out more. Now, after a brief detour to packaging, onto the nutritional information (per biscuit):
Calories - 79kcal
Sugar - 5g
Fat - 5g
Saturated fat - 3g (doesn't seem like a lot but its 13% of your GDA)
Salt - 0.1g
Its not the most unhealthy biscuit in the world, but the addictive taste mean that you rarely stop at the recommended serving of one biscuit and therefore the snack ends up being a whole lot more unhealthy than planned! There are further uses such as dipping in your hot (or cold) drink although that's not the most inventive. Slightly more inventively, this is another one of those things I tried making a milkshake out of and again it tastes amazing. I would highly recommend trying it as it beats almost every other milkshake I have tried and is comparatively healthy.
Great biscuit that is expensive, but can be considered a healthier treat... if you manage to stop at one!
Summary: Great biscuit, expensive but great!
