Oh dear, here we go again. Yes, those of you lovely people that have been good enough to read my recent reviews will know that Fox's biscuits have appeared in the line up more than once! I would like to tell you that this is all a selfless act for the greater good of the Dooyoo community and that I am tasting all these biscuits under duress to supply you all with reviews. I'd be lying though! The truth of the matter is that our local Morrison's has had a whole stand of Fox's biscuits on sale at half price this week. Some of them I already knew I loved (but there's no harm buying another packet just to make sure is there?)Others, like these Chocolate, Fruit and nut cookies had somehow miraculously managed to escape my biscuit loving senses till now and I haven't actually tried these before!
These tempting little morsels come packaged in a predominantly brown and purple wrapper with the Fox's logo prominently displayed. As with there other biscuits there is a picture of the delicious looking biscuits displayed on the front to further tempt you (as if the words Fox's, biscuits and chocolate weren't enough!) Their full official title is "Fox's chunkie fruit and nut extremely chocolatey cookies" Really I could leave the review there as I'm sure you know where this is going, but for those of you that need further persuasion I'll go on!
Inside the outer wrapper the biscuits are neatly stacked in a plastic tray. Stylish and practical undoubtedly but high up there from an environmentally friendly point of view. There are 8 or 9 cookies in a packet (can you believe I actually forgot to count this time and now the evidence has been destroyed !)
This is a substantial biscuit. It certainly lives up to its chunkie name. The bottom of the biscuit is covered in a gorgeous layer of rich tasting creamy chocolate, of just the perfect thickness to compliment the biscuit. The biscuit itself is a truly chunky cookie. There is so much chunkiness to it that the surface forms a tantalising array of peaks and troughs intermingled with visible juicy looking raisins and seriously generously sized chunks of chopped nuts. Anyone who hasn't by this point run out to the shops to buy a packet feel free to read on.
As you bite into this biscuit the lovely sweet richness of the chocolate layer hits you first, coating you tongue(and fingers, but don't worry you can lick them later!) in loveliness. Then you bite down for what seems like forever into the huge layer of chunky cookie. The texture of this cookie is, in my humble opinion just about perfect(based on my unfortunately very extensive experience of biscuit tasting!) It has enough crunch not to be considered soggy, and enough crumbliness not to be considered too hard. It has a pleasing sweet, yet not too sweet flavour(you know sweet enough that you know it can't be good for you, but not so sweet you worry your teeth will instantly fall out!) This combines wonderfully with the chocolate to give you the perfect mouthful. Then, just when you think it can't get any better you stumble across a raisin or piece of nut, or both. What more can I say! The raisins and nuts are generous and plentiful ensuring a good amount in each mouthful, so for someone who loves raisins, nuts and chocolate this is just about the perfect biscuit combination!
I'm not going to bore you all with an ingredients list. After all we don't really buy biscuits because of all the wonderful ingredients we think they contain do we!
I will just tell you though that each biscuit contains an impressive 130 calories and a substantial 6.9g of fat. But of course we wont dwell to long on that!
Ok, you know what I'm going to say, but indulge me! These are totally gorgeous! Chunkie, crunchy, crumbly, fruity, nutty, chocolatey goodness.
The only downside is I will now have to live on celery sticks for a week after testing these for you!
These are cookies fruit, nut and chocolate cookies made by Fox's. They cost around £1.59 and you get around 8 in a pack. The biscuit part is really crunchy, yet crumbly. There are nuts, raisins and pieces of chocolate contained within the biscuit. The bottom of the biscuit looks like a chocolate covered digestive. Each biscuit contains 130 calories.
I am not a fan of cookies, especially they doughy ones like they sell at Millies Cookies. I also don't like raisins and all other shrivelled like fruits, but I tried these at a friends and since then its fair to say I'm a little addicted to them!
They are so moreish. I can't really just eat one! The biscuit part is really nice and crunchy not floppy cookie dough. It's really crumbly too so they really just break off in your mouth. They aren't too dry like some cookies are.
The nuts, chocolate and raisins that are part of the cookie are what makes this a really good biscuit! There is just the right amount as the bottom is also covered in chocolate. There aren't many raisins in the biscuit so I just eat them, but they do enhance the flavour.
They look like rugged cookies if that makes sense, they are not a nice round flat cookie. They are risen up like rock terrain! I have a pack sitting on my desk, with just the one left and it is hard to not eat it! They are well worth the money in my opinion, and are now my biscuit of choice!
