Advantages: Fun, brightly coloured, good for sore throats!
Still on the review topic of biscuits, you may have guessed I have been a bit partial to biscuits recently. This week, it has been the turn of the Fox's Party Rings. I felt like buying something cute and cheery to eat and saw the Party Rings in the local Co-op for 89p for a standard size pack.
Inside the light plastic cover, you find a plastic tray with four different coloured iced biscuits in , five of each colour. 20 biscuits for 89p is very good in my opinion.
The colour varieties are:
Orange with white stripes
Pink with yellow stripes
Yellow with pink stripes
Lilac with yellow stripes
Each biscuit is round with a hole in the centre and quite thin. There is a layer of dried icing totally covering the top of each biscuit that is easily as thick as the biscuit layer itself. When you eat the biscuits the biscuit almost dissolves in your mouth. The icing can crack off as it is dried icing and not soft icing as you would find on a cup cake.
The bright colours makes these loads of fun and I just felt generally more cheerful when I was eating these. I did polish off a pack in three days.
31 calories, 2.9g sugar, 5.3g carbohydrates, 0.9g fat (0.4g saturates) and 0.03g salt.
This is lower than I had expected as I thought the icing layer would have beefed up the calories content. I suppose the biscuits are quite small and you can easily eat four or five at once without breaking into a sweat so on the whole these are probably quite dangerous if you are on a diet (not as dangerous as M&S choc chip cookies though...).
The pack states "No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives". Also these are NOT suitable for vegetarians. Which I did not expect to see as you think a BISCUIT is not a meat/ animal product.
The ingredients are:
Wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oil, glucose syrup, salt, raising agents, GELATINE, colours: carmine, beta-carotene, natural flavourings, soya lecithin, hydrolysed wheat gluten, glycerine, citric acid.
This is a lot more ingredients that I expected too. These biscuits contain soya, wheat and gluten so if you are intolerant to these then you cannot join the party.
I love these, they have been great for my sore throat and have cheered me up this week! I think they are great value for money and if you can discipline yourself to only have one or two they are not that bad at all. Only 62 calories for 2 biscuits. Thats about the same calories as an apple!
Summary: Fun cheery biscuits!
