“ Brand: Fox's / Type: Biscuits „
Is all that excess packaging necessary? Can't you buy a bigger pack and take 4 per day for the lunch bag?
My kids, like myself, have always been a fan of the biscuits "Party rings", these were an integral part of my childhood with my children always gravitating towards the brightly coloured packaging when asked to pick what they want for their biscuit tin.
Upon a recent trip I spotted the newest incarnation in this brand the "party ring pot", I came to the conclusion (very quickly!), that these would indeed be ideal for my children's school lunch boxes, so I promptly threw them into my trolley.
There is no mistaking this for any other product, with the same colourful and eye catching pictures and information on the top of the pots.
The plastic tray is segmented into 6 perforated tubs, each tub containing 4 party ring biscuits, these makes them preferable to the chocolate bars my kids normally take, as you may gather they do not attend one of those schools that have the dinner ladies checking and confiscating food items from lunch boxes!
To separate the pots you simply bend along the perforation a little, just to get it started then tear, be careful whilst doing this though, due to the lid on the tub being a thin layer of sealed plastic sheet, it is very easy to tear the lid by accident.
Once separated from the rest you can simply peel away the lid, there is a small flap of excess perfect to grab hold of.
Once removed you will be faced with the party rings in all there glory. For those of you who have never seen these they really are very tempting to look at, for me (as a child of course!), I would love dipping my finger in and scooping the ring out and nibbling at the edges whilst still wearing it on my finger, very much the same principal as a Hula Hoop crisp!
The biscuit is round in shape with the obligatory hole in centre, over the entire top of the biscuit is a thick layer of icing glaze with a different coloured icing feathered over the top in lines.
The only thing I wash slightly disappointed with was the fact that the pots are set out the same way an actual pack of Party rings is, meaning that instead of having a selection of coloured biscuits in each pack, you just get four of the same colour.
Please don't be mistaken into thinking that a different colour represents a different flavour, it doesn't but I do find myself leaning towards the mauve coloured icing first, I know funny isn't it!
The taste is of course perfect, the biscuit is sweet and crumbly with the icing being sweet and crackly, it sounds silly to describe it in that way but when I was a child I would love to nibble the icing from around the edges first working my way into the centre, the icing always seemed to crackle on my tongue!
The nutritional information is as follows -
0.4g of which saturates
As you may have gathered myself and my children love these, the thing that also attracted me to this product is the fact it does limit you into eating just a pot, if the pack was open I do tend to find we can finish a whole pack in one sitting, this is without even really trying!
Another clincher was the fact that when purchased they were on offer at Asda for the price of £1.00.
