Fox`s Classic Bar
Advantages: OOH EVERYTHING...
Disadvantages: BIT MORE EXPENSIVE THAN OTHER BISCUITS
I love to dunk biscuits into my tea, be it chocolate or plain, wafers or mallows - you can almost guarantee that whatever biscuit I am happily chomping alongside my over-sized mug of tea will most likely end up going head first into said mug for a good old dunk... This is probably one of my favourite hobbies!
Because of this 'hobby' of mine, it is no surprise that I most definitely buy too many biccies. I have my favourites, and I suppose that most people do, but i find that one biscuit that I keep going back to is the 'Classic' bar by Fox's biscuits.
The bars are packaged in a smart and impressive-looking navy blue coloured wrapper, with gold wording, which I think gives the impression of them being high quality. I am happy to report that in my opinion they most definitely are! ;-)
For those of you who have not come across the Classic biscuits before, it consists basically of a layer of oaty/digestive-type/honeycomb biscuit, with a creamy layer of delicious filling on top, which is nicely rounded off with another layer of the oaty biscuit. The 'sandwich' type biscuit is then generously covered in gorgeous milk chocolate.
The biscuits are readily available from all good supermarkets and shops, although I tend to buy them from my local 'Farmfoods' store, where they cost me 99 pence for a packet containing 8 (I think, although please don't quote me) biscuits.
I think that this is a very reasonable price, given the high quality of Fox's biscuits in general... In my opinion, chocolate biscuits are one of those items where you 'get what you pay for' and I would rather pay a little more to get something of higher quality.
I also find that the overall taste of the classic bars is one of distinction - I haven't came across any chocolate biscuit that tastes remotely similar to the classic bar in all my time as a biccy-dunker! This just reinforces to me the idea that this recipe is a winning one.
The oat-type biscuit is very satisfying and is rather crunchy which contrasts nicely with the smooth texture of the butter cream filling. This in itself would be a great recipe for a successful biscuit, but the fact that the whole thing is enveloped nicely in the rich, high-quality milk chocolate just makes it deliciously divine! **Cue Mouth Waterage** !!! :-o
There are 113 calories in each biscuit bar, which tends to be slightly more than other biscuits in my cupboard (I've checked it against two alternative brands of biscuit for the benefit of you lovely dooyooers!!)
That said though, I think that these biscuits are in a league of their own and cannot really be compared to something plainer, like a 'BreakAway' bar for example. For that reason, I think they should be given a higher allowance when it comes to both FINANCIAL budgets and CALORIFIC budgets!!
(Easy for me to say when I'm smaller than a size 10 though, I suppose) :-/
I would most definitely recommend the Fox's Classic bars. They are a firm favourite in our household, and are a nice indulgent treat.
I also think my snobbish side likes to put these out when we have visitors or guests, because I think overall they give the impression of quality. Most people recognise that the Fox's Brand is a good one and can be relied upon to delivery high quality biscuits.
Full marks for this Foxy biccy from this biccy-lover! :-D 5 Stars!
Summary: WORTH PAYING A BIT EXTRA FOR THIS DELICIOUS TREAT! :-D
