      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A perfect biscuit.

      Since moving to a new office at work our team decided to set up a tea fund to allow us to have a constant supply of tea, coffee, milk and of course biscuits. I volunteered to manage the tea fund but this does mean that I get to choose what biscuits we have. One purchase I made recently was of the Fox's Golden Crunch Creams which are a biscuit that I really like.

      I pourchased a twin pack of the crunch creams which contains 2 x 168g packets from the pound shop which as you can guess cost £1.00. I thought this was great value as they retail for £1.09 per packet in Tesco when full price.

      The crunch creams consist of two crunchy golden biscuits filled with vanilla cream. The come packaged in a platstic wrapper which is yellow/ ornage in colour and has a pull tab opening at the top of the packet. On the back of the wrapper you can find detailed product information for the biscuits including nutritional informaiton, ingredients listings, allergy advice and storage instructions.

      Obviously biscuits are intended as a treat as they are not the most healthy or nutritional item. Each biscuit contains the following nutritional informaiton:
      Calories - 78
      Sugar - 6.2g
      Fat - 3.8g
      Saturates - 2.2g
      Salt - 0.09g

      These biscuits do taste delicious, the two round biscuits are golden in colour, have a crackled look and are crunchy and slightly crumbly in texture. The vanilla cream they are sandwiched together with is smooth and creamy tasting and works perfectly well with the slightly caramelised tasting biscuits. I personally like to twist of one of the biscuits and eat that first and then the remaining one with the vanilla cream on. This is just personal preference as I find if bitten into when in tact then the biscuit tends to crumble and break into pieces making it harder to eat. These biscuits also taste fabulous when dunked in tea as the vanilla flavoured cream melts a little but you have to be quick as the biscuit are a little delicte and wont hold much liquid before breaking up.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A yummy treat for anytime of the day or night.

        I love biscuits and these have to be one of my favourites. Produced by Fox's, Golden Crunch Creams are delicious, from start to finish. This pack was on offer at Asda recently for 50p, which is about half its RRP, so I had to buy them.

        Each pack is about 20cm long and 4cm in diameter. The pack is yellow and orange and is distinguishable by the Fox's logo and the pictures of the delicious biscuits. Each pack contains 200g of biscuit, which equates to 12 biscuits per pack. Each biscuit is 4cm in diameter and is made up of 2 crunchy biscuits that sandwich a yummy vanilla cream filling.

        On biting the biscuit, the crunchy biscuit is easy to bite through and sweet tasting. You can taste the vanilla filling as you eat it which is very nice. The filling is soft, but is still firm enough not to fall out or be runny. The biscuits hold together well and if you want to split the biscuit from the cream it is quite easy. This means that it is easy to be able to eat the cream and biscuits separately, which I like doing.

        As a snack, these are a yummy treat any time of the day or night. At there full price, they are quite expensive for what they are, however when they are on offer, they do prove to be excellent value and a great change from the own brand value biscuit packs I am used to. Sadly as they are biscuits, they aren't too healthy for you. Each biscuit contains 79 calories, 6g of sugar, 3.9g of fat and only 0.01g of salt. This isn't too bad, but if you eat too many, which I have done before, then you do feel like you have pigged out.

        Overall, I am going to give these 4/5 as they are really nice to eat, but the normal RRP price can be very off putting. I would buy them again but only when they are on offer. They do come in a chocolate variety, which is a bit like a bourbon cream.

        Thanks for reading my review.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Superior to the custard cream in all ways.

          I'm currently off work with some horrible form of kidney infection and my friend came over with biscuits to cheer me up. Amongst them is the humble Golden Crunch Cream by Fox's, one of the few biscuits I could easily demolish a whole packet of.

          Fox's do some fantastic biscuits and this is one of their best. They cost 89p a packet in Sainsbury's - I can't imagine them being much different anywhere else and they are naturally found in the biscuit aisle. The packets contain 200g of biscuits - about 12 in total, which isn't a huge number.

          The biscuits come in the usual tube and the packet is yellow, displaying pictures of the biscuit. As they are called Golden Crunch Cream, the colour scheme of the packet matches the biscuit, which I like. They are easy to find on the shelves, due to the distinctive Fox's logo, All the usual contact information and nutritional information is on the packet - be warned that these biscuits are very naughty at 79 calories and 3.9g fat per biscuit! These are also suitable for veggies.

          The packet opens in the same way as most packets - a little tear in the top, which you peel away and unwrap a strip around the top. Sometimes, this just tears off, but this opened easily, without tearing the rest of the packet. The biscuits are round, golden and look almost homemade and smell quite oaty.

          The individual biscuits are actually two biscuits, sandwiched with cream, not unlike a custard cream. However, the biscuit is oaty, sweet and tastes buttery. There seems to be a fair amount of sugar on these! They are also crunchy and harder than a custard cream, making them much different. The aftertaste really sticks around - buttery and lovely! The cream is sweet and reminds me of fondent icing. You get a generous amount - the cream layer is really rather thick.

          Although the individual biscuits are filling (and for that calorie content, they should be!) it is impossible to eat just one or two; despite feeling sick and full I will just keep going. In fact, my friend has just removed the packet from me, knowing that this is likely to happen.

          These are one of my favourite biscuits and I couldn't recommend them enough. I would take a star off for high calorie content and the fact that I feel there could be a few more in the packet - but they are just too yummy to do that!

          All in all, these beat the custard cream hands down in a fight. And they are stronger in a coffee-dunking too :)

          Thanks for reading.

            Another handful it is then

            There are a few biscuits where it's very easy to go overboard and devour packet after packet without even being aware of it and these certainly fall into that category.

            These biscuits like chocolate biscuits taste at their best when you have them with a cup of tea. In between the two layers of biscuit with a cream in the middle.

            The biscuits themselves are quite golden in colour and as the name suggests they have a very nice crunchy taste to them. They have a very sweet and rich flavour which is obviously given by the cream in the middle.

            They are quite small though and despite it sounding like greed, the deliciousness of them certainly does lead to a handful of them being taken at once. i have no doubt that these are packed with calories and if you are conscious about how these will affect your diet or indeed your weight, you should either limit their consumption or perhaps stay away from them altogether.

            I would appreciate it if the biscuits themselves were a little bigger and more filling but on the other hand I am not sure I could just be content with one or two regardless of how big the biscuits became. The great thing is you never tire of these as they just seem to continue invigorating your taste buds.

            Lovely biscuits

            Last week while shopping my partner came across some Fox's biscuits in an offer bin in one of our local discount stores. At 2 packets for £1 he purchased both the Golden Crunch Creams and the ginger version. I assumed he would be taking them to work for his staff but not so, they've found their way into our biscuit barrel so I've actually got to eat a few!

            Fox's Golden Crunch Creams come in a yellow packet with the nutritional statistics per biscuit proudly dislayed across the front: 79 calories, 6.0g sugar, 3.9g fat, 2.3g saturates and 0.08g salt. Now those are not healthy but it's a refreshing change that a company declare these facts for us to read before we buy them. They contain cow's milk, soya, wheat, gluten and oats and are made in a factory that uses nut ingredients so if you have food intolerances these are not for you. They are however suitable for vegetarians.

            They are described as crunchy oaty biscuits with a vanilla cream filling and that's exactly what they are!

            Each biscuit has two of the crunchy biscuit sections which are lightly dusted in sugar, and sandwiched in between is a thick circle of stodgy vanilla icing which holds the whole thing together perfectly. I'd forgotten just how tasty these biscuits are because I haven't had any for years but they really are delicious but very sweet too so it doesn't take many to satisfy a sweet craving. That's a good thing if you recall the nutritional statistics.

            I suspect there are about 15 biscuits in a packet, it's hard to be sure because we've both eaten some but roughly 15 which is pretty good value for the 50p we paid for them. These biscuits have not changed in all the years I've been aware of them and taste exactly the same as they always did which I like because I'm never keen when companies start altering recipes, it makes me wonder what was wrong with the original recipe.

            Overall I really like these biscuits, the crunchy part is just that and tastes oaty and sweet and the vanilla filling is firm and yet moist so it takes away any dryness you get from the actual biscuits. For me they are a touch sweet and 2 is my limit but I'm sure that's just me and my savoury tooth as my partner doesn't stop until he's had 5 or 6! Because of the amount of fat in these I would say they are an occasional treat and not to be scoffed every day with your coffee but as long as they are eaten in moderation I don't think it's a problem.

            I really recommend these for biscuit lovers, I can't comment on dunking because I don't dunk (yuk!) but I think they'd probably hold together quite well for that purpose! They are crunchy and sweet and satisfy a sweet craving very well. I even think kids would like these too but again I haven't put it to the test.

            A full 5 stars from me for being exactly what they say they are and for also taking away the effort of trying to work out how many calories etc are in each by telling us before we buy.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A lovely mix of crunchy biscuit with soft and creamy middle

              My boys love their biscuits and as we do get through a lot of them I always seem to buy the cheaper brands but as a treat I spotted these Fox's crunch creams and as they looked nice in the picture I decided to treat me and my Nan to them.

              ~~THE PACKET~~

              The biscuits come in a tube shaped packet which is yellow and orange in colour. On the packet we have the Fox logo and the name of the biscuits, there is also a picture showing what the biscuits actually look like. On the reverse of the packet is all the information about the biscuits including the nutritional values and ingredients. At the end of the packet there is a small sticky out tab which is to be pulled and allows the packet to open fully at one end without having to use a knife to cut into the packet.

              ~~TASTE AND APPEARANCE~~

              The biscuits are a good size and I would say they are approximately 6cm wide and 2cm thick, they are round in shape and they come with two biscuits with a cream filling holding them together. They are a lovely golden colour and look very similar in texture to ginger nuts except for the colour. As these are cream biscuits I eat them in the same way as other creams and that is to eat the top piece first. I found this to taste lovely, it is very hard to pinpoint the taste exactly but I will say it was very apparent that they contain oats.

              Next I decided to eat the cream and the second biscuit together. The cream was very buttery and light and reminded me of the homemade butter cream I sometimes put inside a sponge cake. The contrast between the soft and creamy filling was nice together with the hard and crunchy biscuit.

              Personally I found the biscuits were quite hard on my teeth but my boys have all tried these biscuits since I first bought them and they don't seem to find them too hard to eat and I have to say my 2 year old loves them!

              ~~INFO~~

              The packet weight is 200g and I would say you get roughly 20 biscuits in each packet.

              They are made by fox's and on the packet they do say that these biscuits are produced in a factory which also makes products containing nuts. These are suitable for vegetarians.

              The ingredients for the biscuits are:-

              Wheat flour, Sugar, Vegetable Oil, Dried Whole Milk, Rolled Oats (3%), Glucose Syrup, Partially Inverted Refiners Syrup, Raising Agents: Ammonium Bicarbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Disodium Diphosphate, Salt, Emulsifier: Soya Lecithin, Natural Flavouring, Colour: Mixed, Carotenes

              The nutritional values per biscuit are:-

              Calories - 310 (Kcal - 74)
              Protein - 0.7g
              Carbohydrate - 9.3g
              Of which sugars - 5.5g
              Fat - 3.8g
              Of which saturates - 2.2g
              Fibre - 0.2g
              Sodium - 0.03g
              Equivalent as Salt - 0.07g

              I have to say I was not happy when I looked at these as they are not at all healthy but they are ok for the occasional treat. Once the biscuit packet has been opened the biscuits must be stored in an air tight container to keep them fresh.

              ~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~

              I bought the first packet of these from my local shop and fortunately they were in a priced market packet costing me on 89p as otherwise I think they would have been well over £1. They are available in most supermarkets but I am not sure of the exact price as I have never really looked. I would say they should be around the 70 - 80p per packet mark.

              ~~OVERALL~~

              After now buying several packets of these biscuits but only ever getting the occasional one I do highly recommend them, I just wish my boys did not like them so much as it would mean I get a few more of them! I think I will have to have a secret stash of these as they are so lovely. They are not very health but biscuits never are! Definitely one for all cream biscuit fans.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A nice change every now and again

                When it comes to biscuits, I normally prefer something smothered in chocolate. However, since these Fox's Golden Crunch Creams were on offer the other day I decided to try these instead. I don't normally like any kind of sandwich style biscuit, as I find the cream too sickly. However, these biscuits may have just changed my mind.

                Packaging:

                Unlike some cheaper versions of biscuits, these ones come wrapped in a really thick and shiny plastic packet. There is the usual red band around the top of the packet which makes it quick and easy to open. However, this also means that the packet opens rather too far and you end up of having no way of attempting to reseal the biscuits. Maybe this is their cunning plan so you eat the whole packet in one sitting to save them going stale, if you don't have any other way of storing them?

                Inside the packaging:

                After opening the packet with ease the biscuits near the top of the packet slide out easily. However, as you get further and further down the packet, it becomes a bit trickier to release them. This is made worse by the fact that they are sandwich style biscuits so the two halves can come apart pretty easily. The packet is so tight that the biscuits sit rigid and do not move an inch, so you have to use your nail on the outside of the packet and try and prise them out. In more cases than not this resulted in the biscuit coming apart. Not really a massive problem, just a bit annoying if you wanted to share them with anybody.

                When you get the biscuit out of the packet, you notice that they are quite thick. This obviously means there are less biscuits per pack, but also means that each biscuit is a decent size and that they haven't skimped on the size of the biscuit or the amount of filling. To be fair to them, each of the three layers looks almost identical in size.

                The Taste Test:

                When you bite into the biscuit, the first thing you notice is how brittle the biscuits are. As they are thick they take a bit of effort to bite into, however after this initial crunch the biscuit breaks easily and makes lots of crumbs. These are definitely not biscuits to eat in bed! The biscuits are very sweet and remind me of a syrupy flavour. I'm not sure whether this is because they are called 'golden' that I seem to have made this inference or not. The cream is also incredibly sweet and thick, however it does compliment the biscuits well.

                If you like to dunk your biscuits in your tea or coffee, these do dunk fairly well. They soak up the tea very quickly though so you do have to be careful not to let it succumb to the bottom of the mug. The biscuits do become very soggy after a quick dunk, but also a lot softer so are easier to eat.

                Summary:

                Overall these biscuits make a nice change to my usual chocolate covered ones. However, they are incredibly sweet and quite sickly if you eat too many of them. I do have to say that the cream is my least favourite part of the biscuit as it tastes very synthetic and fake. Whereas, the actual biscuit part is much more tasty and definitely moreish. If I saw these biscuits on offer I would certainly consider them, although they are not my favourite.

                  Oh so good.... but Oh so bad!

                  Foxs Golden Crunch are part of the Foxs Cream range, which also includes a ginger and chocolate version. I'll be honest didn't buy them for any reason other than they were cheaper being 2 packets for £1 at my local Lidl. But when I got round to trying one, lets just say one turned into two, two into three and so on!

                  Basically it is a sandwich biscuit, a crunchy oat biscuits with a creamy filling. As you start to bite through the biscuit you can instantly taste the butter and it starts to melt in the mouth but still with the oats giving just the right amount of crunch and chew. Next is the heavenly meeting with the cream filling, it takes a moment for the flavour the come through hinting at vanilla and sweetened whipped cream. The last layer of biscuit rounds off the flavours, again melting in the mouth and bringing back a little chew.

                  I can't get enough of these, they are simply the best biscuit I have ever tasted. They also have homemade taste to them, I can imagine my grandmother serving something like this and passing them off as her own!

                  In each packet there are 200g which is roughly 20 biscuits. I'm not a huge fan of the packaging and I feel it doesn't do justice to the product inside. My only major quibble is the amount of fat in these. There is 11% GDA of saturated fat in each and every biscuit. With a bit of hindsight maybe I should not of eaten the majority of the packet!

                  These are very extraordinarily nice biscuits but not at all healthy. They are however suitable for vegetarians and are made in good old Yorkshire so your supporting the local economy too. Recommended! Thumbs Up!

                  Somewhat ironiclly I won't be buying these again myself as shockingly I have managed to eat the whole packet whilst writing this review :s

                    Four stars from - Another great biscuit from Fox's!

                    Fox's biscuits are based in Batley, West Yorkshire where they opened their factory in 1853 they are well known makers of biscuits for example -Rocky, Classic and Echo bars as well as Party Rings, which I loved as a child.

                    They also produce Crunch Creams which are available in Golden Crunch, Ginger and Choc Fudge my review will be based on the Golden Crunch variety.

                    To be honest the first variety I tried was the Ginger Crunch which does tastes great but I soon came across my favourite which I have to say is the Golden Crunch. The Golden Crunch biscuit has two fairly chunky biscuits which are sandwiched together with cream. The cream itself has a soft, smooth and creamy texture which goes very well with the crunch you get from the biscuit. The biscuit does have a tendency to break slightly but this is because the cream is soft so the biscuit moves as you bite into it.

                    Each biscuit is very buttery and added with the cream could possibly be a little too sweet for some people. However I have a sweet tooth so this doesn't really bother me. You can just about taste the oats that have gone into making this biscuit which makes it an extra tasty biscuit. I find these biscuits to be quite moorish and if I could I would lock the biscuits away somewhere to stop me eating them.

                    These biscuits are perfect for a treat every now and then and are perfect for when I am on my break at work, as they are great with a cup of tea. Overall the appearance of the biscuit is of a very high standard it looks like a good quality biscuit.

                    Per biscuit the nutritional information is as follows...

                    74kcal, 3.8g Fat and 0.2g Fibre

                    On the pack it states that the biscuits contain cows milk, soya, wheat, gluten and oats. The pack also warns that the product has been made in a factory that uses nut ingredients.

                    At the moment Asda have these biscuits priced at 50p per pack which isn't too bad for a quality biscuit.

                    For more information see Fox's website as they have a full list of all their products, I went on to have a look and then wanted to buy most of what they sell, every thing looked so nice. Also at the moment you can vote for your favourite biscuit.

                      A lovely little treat

                      When I was shopping in town the other day I went into Poundland for a mooch round and found that they were selling Fox's Golden Crunch Creams at just £1 for an extra value pack which contained two x 200g packets of the biscuits. Incidentally the current price per 200g packet in Tesco's is 79p although they are on offer for 50p at the moment so the price would effectively be the same as it was in Poundland until 10th January 2010.

                      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. I thought it would be nice to get one or two different varieties ready for Christmas so we could offer guests a biscuit with a cup of tea or coffee.

                      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 but this time it was the Golden Crunch that I chose.

                      The packet is bright yellow with the words Fox's Creams Golden 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, gluten and oats 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 vanilla 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 oaty 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 taste of the outer biscuits blends 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:

                      Calories 74
                      Protein 0.7g
                      Carbohydrate 9.3g
                      Of which sugars 5.5g
                      Fat 3.8g
                      Of which saturates 2.2g
                      Fibre 0.2g
                      Salt 0.08g

                      In conclusion I would say that these biscuits are great for the price and will make a nice occasional treat over the Christmas period - as though we haven't got enough treats ready for the next few weeks!

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        great quality biscuits but you pay for them

                        Foxes golden crunch creams are a fantastic biscuit. Firstly I just love any foxes biscuits as they seem just a really high quality biscuit and I suppose that is because there made by foxes.

                        I really like the normal golden crunch biscuits that foxes make and I had tried these before I actually bought a pack of the cream ones so I knew that I should like them, and I certainly wasn't wrong either.

                        The biscuits are made up of two biscuits and then a cream layer in the middle. The two biscuits on the top and bottom are fairly small and thin but they taste of the golden crunch that is so nice. Its kind of a buttery biscuit taste which is really crispy and tastes really fresh.

                        The cream in the middle makes the biscuit though really as it merges with the two biscuit parts very well. The biscuits are quite small in size but they are thick so two is usually enough for me at one time. However because they are thick you don't seem to get that much in a packet and they are a bit more expensive than a lot of the other biscuits available too so I don't get these all the time even though they do taste excellent.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        very good quality biscuit

                        Fox's creams are one of those biscuits that when I do buy I have to be very careful not to eat them all in one go. They are reasonably priced for biscuits of this quality and if you look around you can find some great offers on them.
                        The packet is a lovely golden colour that promise so much inside. You peel the packet open and you see that you won't be disappointed. You soon notice that these are quality biscuits and that probably because Fox's have been going for over 150 years

                        Now lets be honest they are not healthy but then again not many biscuits are. They are 74 cal per biscuit and 3.8 grams of fat.
                        They are a great biscuit when you're sat down watching TV while having a coffee or when you have visitors. They seem to melt in your mouth when you crunch into them and even with the cream they don't seem to be over sickly unless you eat the whole packet and believe me that is very easy to do.
                        These have got to be classed as the grown up version of the custard cream and should be an adult only product.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Pleasant taste but not the healthiest

                        I was in my local Co-op the other day and noticed a great offer - a packet of Fox's golden crunch creams for under 50p! When you consider that a chocolate bar costs 50p or more, this is an excellent offer.

                        What are they?: Fox's have been around since 1853 and make a wide range of tasty sweet biscuits. The Golden Crunch biscuits consist of 2 circular light brown biscuits fused together with a white creamy and sweet filling.

                        Packaging: The wrapper is a made from a standard plastic biscuit wrapper that is predominantly yellow and golden yellow in appearance. The Fox's creams logo is in bold colourful text, and there are quite a few pictures of the biscuits on the main display area. Nutritional information and ingredients are on the other side of the packet.

                        Smell: When you open up the wrapper, you immediately smell a sweet aroma, which reminds me of golden syrup. The smell is tempting and makes you want to tuck into the biscuits!

                        Taste: The main biscuits taste of sugar and oats and are very pleasant to eat. The biscuits are crunchy but not difficult to bite through. The creamy centre is also very pleasant and is an excellent combination of taste with the main biscuit. I enjoy the biscuits with a nice cup of tea and find they taste even better if you dunk them. The biscuits also "hold their own" in the tea and don't disintegrate readily.

                        Healthy?: Each biscuit contains:
                        74 calories (4% of your guideline daily amount - GDA)
                        5.5 g sugar (6% of your GDA)
                        3.8 g fat (5% of your GDA)
                        2.2 g saturates (11% of your GDA)
                        0.08g salt (1% of your GDA)

                        So make sure you don't go overboard on eating the biscuits as they are particularly high in saturated fats. They are better as an occasional treat.

                        Overall: These biscuits have a very pleasant taste and dunk really well in tea. However they are not the healthiest so enjoy as a treat.

                          Disadvantages

                          A great classic for everyone to enjoy.

                          These are a classic, with years of history behind them, they are loved by almost everyone, and I can see why! The high quality, great taste, awesome texture and a good price all combine to make these some of my favourite biscuits!

                          The packaging is very bright, and they stand out on the supermarket shelves with the standard Fox's branding. The text is easy to read and the packet can be opened easily. They are always fresh, but the packaging is thin so you will need to put them into another container to keep them fresh after they have been opened. It can rip open, so be careful when eating them. Sometimes, I do get some that are already broken in the packet.

                          When you open them, a nice smell drifts into your nose, mediately making you want to pop them into your mouth. When you pop one into your mouth, you get a nice crunch and they start to melt in your mouth. First, the biscuit hits your taste buds with a nice creamy taste. Then, the cream hits, providing a soothing taste that softens the mouth. The textures work perfectly together, and the tastes are a perfect combination.

                          The quality of the product is always a high standard, with a good layer of cream and top notch taste that is always similar. No other brands come close, making them worth the extra couple of pence per biscuit, as you will certainly feel that it is worth it! They are quite sweet, but not too strong.

                          The biscuits are a good size, but can be eaten in one bite. They are quite filling, and are very satisfying, but are also very addicting, making it easy to eat almost all of the packet in one go.

                          However, the biscuits aren't too healthy. They contain lots of fat and also quite a lot of calories and sugar.

                          Overall, a great tasting product that will be enjoyed by everyone. The taste is great, and the product can usually be picked up in special deals, meaning they are great value, giving you no reason to miss them out!

                            A lovely tasting biscuit that I will buy again

                            Fox's crunch creams

                            I was doing a small shop in my local Tesco's store, decided to have a look around to see if there was anything i needed to purchase and saw that these biscuits were on offer at half price! I was very pleased about this as they are my favourite biscuits. I grabbed a pack straight away!

                            the packaging is a yellow packet with 'Fox's golden crunch creams with real oats' in large colourful writing. There are detailed pictures of the biscuits on the packet, which makes you able to see what the product you are buying looks like. I think it is a good packaging which makes you want to buy these biscuits because of the picture of the biscuits and the large writing.

                            Each biscuit contains 74 calories (which is quite a lot), 5.5 grams of sugar, 3.8 grams of fat, 2.2 grams of saturates and 0.08 grams of salt.

                            The taste is very sweet, and you can definately taste that these are very sugary. They are quite similar to Custard creams in the middle which is very tasty, but the biscuit is much more crunchy and you can taste the oats. I really like to dunk mine in a cup of tea, i think they are ideal for eating with a cup of coffee or tea, but I notice that when I decide to have some I tend to want more than just 1 or 2 as they are very nice tasting biscuits.

                            The only con with these biscuits is that they are rather expensive at around 65p per pack when not on any offer which in my opinion is quite a lot for a packet of biscuits.

                            I would recommend anyone to try these biscuits and see what they think of them.
