I recently watched a program all about sugar where it stated that Britain eats more biscuits than any other nation in Europe. One brand of biscuits which is very well established is Foxs who have been making biscuits for 160 years . My office always has biscuits in the biscuit barrel and today was my turn to stock it up. I took a trip to my local Tesco Express where they had these foxs ginger crunch creams on a half price special offer priced at just 54p for a 168g packet.
The biscuits come packaged in a plastic wrapper that has a peelable tab at the top to easily open the biscuits. The wrapper is not reseal able so once open it’s a case of eat all the biscuits or place into a air tight container to keep them fresh. The biscuits are described on the wrapper as ‘crunchy ginger biscuits filled with yummy ginger flavoured cream’. You can also find nutritional information, allergy advice and ingredients listings on the wrapper.
The biscuits themselves look very appealing being a lovely golden brown colour with a crackled top and a nice thick layer of cream filling in the middle. They also have a lovely smell of ginger as soon as you remove one from the packet.
I love the taste of these biscuits, they are light and have a lovely crunchy, crumbly texture and the cream filling really compliments this. The ginger flavour is just powerful enough to give a slightly warming taste without being too overpowering and cuts through the sweetness by just the right amount. Each biscuit contains 78 calories which means they make a lovely mid morning treat without being too indulgent.
Overall these are great everyday biscuits from Foxs which are great quality, taste delicious and are fantastic value when on special offer.
You can't beat a good biscuit with a nice cup of tea and these ginger biscuits are one of my favourites sold in Home Bargains I can get 2 packets for 99p making it cheaper than supermarkets.
Fox's biscuits have been around for a long time and I think they are a brand we would all know. When I buy Fox's biscuits I always know I am going to get good quality. I am a fan of ginger biscuits anyway and I know that this may put some people off but if your a fan of ginger biscuits then you should like these.
Fox's describe these biscuits as 'crunchy ginger biscuits filled with yummy ginger flavour cream' I would say this is quite accurate the biscuits are round 2 ginger biscuits stuck together with a creamy filling. Now I wouldn't personally say these are biscuits have a really overpowering ginger kick to them as some ginger biscuits do but there is still a hint of ginger there. The outside biscuits are quite thick and the cream centre has a yellow tint to it. Eating them tea free they are really crunchy and delicious eating once dunked in tea the thick biscuit soaks up the tea and makes them even more tasty. These biscuits in our house are gone in a day because they are so nice its impossible to just have one. There are 78 calories per biscuit though so I try to limit my intake to 3 if I am really strong maybe just 2 in one sitting.
I give these bisuits 5 stars if you like ginger biscuits you will like these.
I think ginger biscuits are a bit like Marmite, you either love them or hate them. I actually really like ginger biscuts. I have always found the texture and slightly unusual taste very appealing.
Fox's are a really well known brand when it comes to biscuits and confectionery and was established way back in 1853. The quality of products has always been of a very high standard and there is a wide range of products available under the Fox's name.
Having always been a fan of ginger biscuits, I decided to try Fox's Crunch Ginger Creams. I have tried varieties of cream biscuits in the past and find that they offer something a little different in terms of taste compared to standard biscuits and it makes for a nice change.
The packaging is pretty typical of other Fox's products. The wrapping is brightly coloured using greens an bright yellow, a little different from what can be seen in the picture above. In each packet there is 200g of product and there are aound 13 biscuits in a packet.
Each biscuit consists of two ginger biscuits with a thick layer of ginger flavoured cream. The biscuits themselves are golden brown in colour and are quite hard and crunchy and can be quite crumbly when bitten into. The cream is very thick in consistency and the ginger can easily be detected but the flavour isn't too strong that it makes the biscuits off putting. I do find however that due to the cream in the biscuit these can become quite sickly very quickly if too many are eaten. They can be eaten as they are or dipped into a nice cup of tea which is what I prefer to do. When doing this, the biscuits become much softer but they tend to hold their shape and don't break off into the cup. Trying to fish a soggy piece of biscuit out with a spoon can be rather annoying.
As you might expect, eating too many of these will result in piling on the pounds as there are 78 calories in just one biscuit. Thankfully, the fact that these are rather rich might prevent such a thing from happening. There is also 10.2g of Carbohydrate, 6.3g of which are sugars and 3.8g of fat, just two more reasons to consume with extreme caution.
Overall these biscuits are very tasty if you are partial to a ginger nut like myself. If you fancy trying them. they are widely available in supermarkets at 50 pence per pack which I would say is a very reasonable price.

I love to have sweet treats, such as biscuits, to have in the house to eat alone or to dunk in a cuppa tea!
These have to be absoloute favourite biscuits though, they are 'Foxes Ginger Crunch Creams', I think this is mainly due to the fact that I love ginger biscuits and this is basically that with a lovely bit of cream to sandwich to them together!
Each pack costs between 56p-84p, depending on where you buy them from, however I often see them on offer for two packets for £1.
They are avaliable in the likes of Tesco, Asda, most of the other large supermarket chains and also some local corner shops.
It is basically two round ginger biscuits, with a cream based centre to hold the two biscuits together.
The ginger biscuite themselves are just the same as any other ginger biscuit, though I beleive it has a slightly rougher, more crumblier texture to it, rather than slightly smoother ones that I am used to. I do actually prefer this though, it is also not a very sweet ginger biscuit, which is nice as I think it'd be too sweet if these were sweet along with the creamy centre.
The creamy centre is very nice, being perhaps my favourite, it is very sweet and smooth, which is why it works so well in contrast with the biscuit.
It has a thick and creamy texture, which does make it quite an indulgent texture, yet once it is with the slightly rougher in texture biscuit it breaks it up, so it doesn't seem to thick and is lighter.
Overall the taste of these are great and if you like the taste of ginger then I would definitley reccomend these!
Recently I reviewed the Fox's Golden Crunch Creams and at the same time as buying those we also picked up some of the ginger ones. We paid 50p a packet for them but I think they normally sell for about 69p so not too expensive either way.
Fox's Ginger Crunch Creams are a variation on the standard golden ones because they have not only ginger flavoured biscuits but also ginger flavoured cream filling. They come in a green packet which doesn't make me think of ginger at all, I'd have chosen an orange type of colour if it was me but hey ho, ginger creams these certainly are.
Each pack contains about 15 biscuits and each of the biscuits is about the size of a flat golf ball with two crunchy biscuits surrounding a thick layer of cream filling. Per biscuit the nutritional statistics are as follows: 78 calories, 0.7g protein, 10.2g carbohydrates of which 6.3g sugars, 3.8g fat of which 2.2g saturates, 0.2g fibre and 0.05g salt. As you can see these have alot of fat in them per biscuit and if you're a serial muncher you could easily get far more fat than you should in a day so these are to be enjoyed as an occasional treat and in moderation.
These biscuits also contain cow's milk, soya, wheat, gluten and are made in a factory that uses nuts so not for food allergy sufferers! They are suitable for vegetarians though.
Now I really like the taste of ginger and to enjoy these biscuits you need to. The amount of ginger flavouring is strong as it's in both the biscuits and the filling. The biscuits themselves actually taste like ginger snaps and are quite hard so watch your teeth! The filling is a moist but firm layer of what tastes like butter icing with added ginger flavouring. They really do pack a ginger punch and leave you with a warm mouth. They are sweet but the ginger seems to reduce the sugariness of these biscuits so they don't seem as sweet as the golden ones. Just a couple of these are plenty for me to satisfy a biscuit craving so a pack will last me a few weeks and kept in an airtight container they stay crunchy for that length of time.
I can't say for sure these are good dunkers because I don't dunk (yuk!) but I suspect they'd be fine except the cream filling might melt. I wouldn't really think these would be top of many children's wishlist either unless they particularly like ginger. For me though, with my liking of ginger flavours, they are perfect.
Overall they taste good and go perfectly with a cup of tea or coffee. They don't cost much and eaten in moderation shouldn't do you much harm. A full 5 stars from me but remember they do taste strongly of ginger so be prepared!
I love the brand that is Fox's. I love their golden crunch biscuits more than anything at the moment and then when I was in Asda one night I went to pick myself up a packet of them and I couldn't find them with the shop closed and being advised to get out the store in a polite way I grabbed these thinking oh well bet they're nice enough and good quality and at 49p a packet I couldn't wait to try a biscuit out that I hadn't seen before on my travels let alone consumed any!
Bright green plastic tube effect wrapper. I am clearly told that they are Fox's Creams, Ginger Crunch 'Crunchy ginger biscuits with ginger cream filling', that the weight of the packet is 200g, there is an at a glance nutritional chart displayed, the best before date is clearly stamped on and photographs of the biscuits are shown. Other information on the packet includes ingredients and allergy advice being listed, storage details and a full nutritional chart is there and contact details for Fox's are listed. Nice easy to open packet this is however you do need to once opened find an airtight container to put them in really as they are hard to keep sealed in the packet that they come in and do go soft if not stored properly!
Round and a golden brown rich colour, as soon as you open the packet your nose is met by a lovely smell of light, natural and slightly sweet ginger. What you get it two rough textured biscuits stuck together by a generous helping of the cream coloured cream and they are dry and unmessy to deal with.
Taste wise I rather liked these. The ginger in the biscuits wasn't too harsh or overpowering but distinctive and naturally sweet. The cream center was very generous and was a well evened out thick layer of dried cream that melted in the mouth and was very sweet and with a hint of ginger to it too though saying it was very sweet, against the biscuits which arnt so sweet the flavours and sweetness all went together very well indeed!
They do absorb a cuppa if dunking with ease but melt slightly without scumming or falling apart and I found them to be a very robust biscuit indeed. I liked the bite size mouthful you get per biccie and the texture starting off as rather hard and crunchy yet melting in the mouth. Excellent quality, yummy biscuit I shall be consuming alot more of in the future believe me! lol.
Nutritional Information Per Biscuit:
Available in all good supermarkets etc and expect to pay about 89p a packet if they are not on offer (do look out for the offers though and stock up on them whilst you can lol)
My favourite biscuit has always been a ginger nut! lovely! I love the bit of spice and the thick texture of the biscuit! Great for dunking in your tea as its alot less likely to fall in in comparison to rich teas.. or as peter kay calls them "one dips".
Fox's Ginger crunch creams are basically two ginger nuts sandwiched with cream. Its smaller by around 30% than your standard ginger nut, but thats fine as yor have two biscuits. Its not too big to fit in your mouth which is always a bonus.
The cream is very yummy, its not like the oreo's cream, this one is more tastefull, more buttery almost, i want too say more creamy, but instead i'll say it tastes less artificial. (dont get me wrong i do love oreos!).
The cream centre compliments the biscuits nicely, when you di it in your tea it melts ever so slightly, which is very yummy.
Packets of these piscuits generally range from around 50p to £1. Look out for BOGOF offers and cheap deals in your local supermarkets!
I've never been a huge fan of ginger but for some reason I just love ginger biscuits and the Fox's variety make some of the best.
These ones are slightly different to normal ginger biscuits as they have a layer of cream inside. They're quite similar to custard creams but the cream layer is sandwiched between two ginger biscuits rather than plain biscuits.
The ginger is made from real crushed ginger so it has that very tangy and strong ginger taste that you either love or hate and, if you love it, it's quite addictive. The cream inside is very smooth and tastes very sweet and creamy. The biscuits are very crunchy and the cream is really soft and smooth and the mixture of the two really compliments each other.
Although I already knew that Fox's biscuits are a good brand, I didn't realise how great a quality they are. I've had a packet of these open in a kitchen cupboard for literally months, no exaggeration, and although the top biscuit was stale, the rest are perfectly fine so they obviously last for ages and are an excellent quality.
They're also excellent value as well - only 50p for a pack in Asda at the moment which isn't that much more than the plain Asda Smart Price ginger biscuits.
If you like ginger then these are such a yummy choice of biscuits. The cream inside makes them a bit different to usual and they're a really delicious crunchy sandwich.
When I was shopping in town this morning I went into Poundland for a mooch round and found that they were selling Fox's Ginger Crunch Creams at just £1 for an extra value pack which contained two x 200g packets of the biscuits.
I don't normally keep very sweet biscuits in the house as I would be too tempted to eat them and, being a diabetic that isn't such a good idea - I usually only keep plain biscuits in our biscuit tin, but just occasionally we have a treat.
I have always liked all the biscuits in the Fox's Crunch Cream range and often used to get the ginger ones for my dad as he loved ginger biscuits and of course I used to help him eat them!
The packet is bright green with the words Fox's Creams Ginger Crunch written across it together with a picture of a few of the biscuits so that you can see what they are like before you buy them.
There is a list of ingredients contained in the biscuits and a full list of all the nutritional information. There is an allergy warning that these biscuits contain cows' milk, soya, wheat and gluten but they are suitable for vegetarians.
The actual biscuits are a sandwich style being made of two individual biscuits with a vanilla filling in between them. They are circular and measure about two and a half inches in diameter. As I opened the biscuits by tearing the special strip around the top of the packet I noticed a lovely sweet light ginger sort of smell which was very appetising and made me want to try a biscuit straight away.
Of course this was exactly what I did! Well I had to check that they were as good as I remembered them didn't I?
No worries there then - the two outer biscuits are crunchy with a sweet crumbly, ginger taste and the creamy coloured filling in the middle is a buttery consistency with a sweet light vanilla taste. Whilst both the biscuit and the filling are sweet they are not sickly either individually or together.
The taste of the whole biscuit is really delicious - the crunchy texture and the ginger taste of the outer biscuits blend perfectly with the creamy filling providing a lovely snack. The only problem is that once you eat one you will want another and another!
The nutritional information per biscuit is as follows:
Of which sugars 5.8g
Of which saturates 2.1g
In conclusion I would say that these biscuits are great for the price and will make a nice occasional treat - I will just have the resist the temptation to eat too many now!
I bought these for the first time last night, and have to say they are really yummy. I was scouting around the good part of Asda - you know Crisps, Sweets, Chocolate and Biscuits and caught sight of the end Aisle which was full of Fox's biscuits on a 2 for £1 offer. These normally cost 75p per pack, so a little saving to be had. I immediately reached for the original Fo'x Cream, and thought "what could I try for the other pack" I could have got 2 packs of the same biscuit, but I like to try different things when on offer. So it was either these or the Jam Cream, so I went for these!
The pack is quite slimline, but quite long. It is a medium green colour and has a nice picture of 1 of the biscuits on the front and the Fox's brand in quite big lettering. You don't tend to get a lot of Biscuit packaging in Green, so I guess these stood out alright. The biscuits are stacked end to end and you get 14 in a pack.
So what are the Biscuit? They are circular Oaty Biscuits that are joined together with a nice quite hard dollop of Cream. The Cream is nice, sweet and milky tasting and it is on the Biscuit part where you get the Ginger taste from. It is quite a strong Ginger, and I found that when you could taste the Ginger it was strong, but then it lingered a bit, and the taste seemed to have a bit heat to it - if that makes any sense. The Biscuit part was Oaty and Crumble, and you can eat one of these in 2-3 bites. I admit I stuffed a whole one in my mouth for "research" purposes, and although you can bite this down easily enough, you don't get the same taste if you are trying to not choke on it!
Each Biscuit has 72 calories and 3.6g fat.
I would buy these again as they tasted sweet and creamy for the filling, and tangy and slightly salty for the Biscuit part, so a nice mixture of flavourings. Makes a nice change to the original Crunch Creams, and a good offr to be had just now at Asda!
I used to love crunch creams when I was younger, but it's been ages (I'd go as far as saying years) since I've actually had them. A couple of weeks ago I was looking for something sweet and despite the fact I'm supposed to be on a diet I ended up buying a packet - although so far I've had no more than two a day, so I'm not doing too badly, considering how yummy these are!
The biscuits come in a light green packet featuring a picture of them and lots of product information that is well set out and easy to read. The packet also has one of those red tear off strip things so you can open the packet easily.
If you've never had ginger crunch creams, or in fact any of the other varieties from the crunch cream range, I should explain what they are. Basically you have hear two crunchy ginger biscuits which are sandwiched together with a butter cream filling - the same sort of filling you would get on a custard cream.
Appearance wise the biscuits looks really nice. They are a golden gingery colour and the biscuits have that lovely crackled effect on the top. The layer of butter cream in the middle is very thick and a creamy colour, giving the overall biscuit a very appetising appearance.
The important part though, is the taste test. Firstly though I'll just let you know that the front of the pack proclaims proudly that these are made with real ground ginger. I'm not quite sure what else anyone would have expected them to be made of, but since this is written in such big letters, I felt I should mention it just in case it was a more important fact than I believe it is.
The ginger biscuits are as you would expect from the name, crunchy. One thing they're not though is crumbly - yes you do get a few crumbs, but they don't totally crumble like some others. I think that the ginger flavour in each biscuit is not quite as strong as you would normally expect, however I believe this is because you are effectively eating two biscuits in one here, so if the ginger taste was any stronger it may be too much and overpower the whole flavour.
The layer of cream in the middle is gorgeous. Like I said, it's just like the centre of a custard cream, and is smooth and very sugary sweet but not to a point that it is sickly.
I find the cream layer breaks up the taste of the biscuit perfectly and without it they may taste a little dry. It's just the correct level of sweetness, and the combination of flavours is perfect.
Whilst the biscuits are moreish, I find that I can't normally eat more than three, which isn't very many for me, because 'back in the day' I used to be able to polish off a whole pack of biscuits, shamefully enough. I think the reason that I can't manage more is because like I say they are double biscuits so quite filling.
Nutritional Info (Per biscuit):
I paid 95p for these in Somerfield although they were on a buy one get one free offer at the time. ASDA only charge 87p though, so maybe I should buy them from there in the future!
Overall, lovely biscuits and great for a treat, I'd certainly recommend them.
I have recently discovered the delights of Fox's biscuits and at the moment in Morrisons they are on offer at thirty nine pence for a 200g packet which is 30p off the normal retail price. My favourtes are the lemon crunch however a close second behind these are the ginger crunch varity.
These are two crisp ginger biscuits which have sandwiched between them a rich fondant layer with a vanilla flavour, the biscuits are a lovely dark brown colour and they are very crunchy when you first bite into them and you can really tatse the ginger in them. The biscuit itself has a rough texture to it on the outside.
There is a generous amount of smooth cream filling that is very sweet to the taste and the two flavours combine well together in what is a very tasty biscuit.
I have to confess that I'm a bit of a dunker and this biscuit is not too bad to dunk although only for a short dunk as the cream filling will melt on you. The only downside with these biscuits is that they are very moorish and one or two are never enough.
200g. Manufacturer: Fox's. Fox's Ginger Crunch Creams are a crunchy ginger biscuit with a sweet cream filling.
