Advantages: Sweet, yummy, 129 cals
Disadvantages: Very more-ish
Our household gets through a lot of chocolate biscuits - and these are top of everybody's list. Yum! They are the most intense sugar and chocolate hit going, absolutely gorgeous.
There are 2 layers of normal (ie. not chocolate) biscuit which is very pourous and quite crumbly. In between these is a fairly thin layer of incredibly sweet butter cream. The buttercream gets runnier in the warm (but never *quite* liquid) and more solid in the cold (but never harder than the biscuit). The whole thing is smothered in chocolate which is a good idea for most foods, I'm sure you will agree!
The chocolate layer is not very thick, but it doesn't need to be because it is lovely milk chocolate, if I hadn't seen Fox's on the wrapper I might have thought it was Cadbury's dairy milk. Not like certain choccy biscuits where the chocolate is distinctly substandard.
Each biscuit is only 129 calories which isn't bad for this standard of chocolate / sugar hit. They're individually wrapped which means not only are they ideal for lunchboxes or as a portable snack but there is some small chance that I can restrict myself to eating just one! Cost wise they're about average, but keep an eye out in the pound shops - Pound Land has them in stock fairly often.
I suppose it could be too sweet for some people, but for the rest of us - if there were only one chocolate biscuit in the world, this should be it.
Summary: The best chocolate biscuit in the world
