Fox's biscuits are one of the more well known biscuits out there on the shelves today and I always think of Fox's biscuits as quality products. I know I can pick up a packet of foxes biscuits and not be disappointed with them even if I have never tried them before. These rich tea creams are a great example of just that.
These fox's biscuits are curently on offer in Tesco for 45p which I think is a bit of a bargain so I popped them in the trolley alongside some more from the fox's range then went home to make a nice cuppa to enjoy them with.
The biscuits are packaged in a blue plastic wrapper which shows the biscuits on them and the nutritional information is printed on the front also so you know what you are eating before you put it in your mouth so no excuses. Each packet contains around 18 biscuits. Each biscuit contains 56 calories, 3.2g of sugar, 2.5g of fat, 1.4g saturates and 0.08g of salt 56 calories is high for what you get but they are delicious and aslong as you know when to stop then they won't do you to much damage thats what I think anyway I have 2 then they go back in the cupboard.
Each biscuit is long and quite thin and has finger cream printed on each side onto the rich tea biscuit inbetween the biscuit is where you find the delicious vanilla cream. Bititng into them the biscuits are nice and crunchy and the vanilla cream is a welcome extra to the plain biscuit taste. These are also a nice for dunking aslong as you are quick which makes the biscuit just alittle bit creamy to match the vanilla centre.
These biscuits are suitable for vegetarians and contain cows milk, soya, wheat and gluten for those of you who have intolerances to different foods.
I give these biscuits 5 stars.
My kids have always insisted on having a decent selection of biscuits for suppertimes, though due to how many we seem to munch or way through per week I tend to veer towards the cheaper branded types.
After seeing these on offer at my local supermarket my lucky children have ended up with these better branded biscuits for a change!
The product I will now review is - "Fox's creams - rich tea with real vanilla cream".
These particular biscuits are finger creams rather than the round rich tea biscuits as the name may suggest.
Each biscuit is comprised of a reasonably thick finger sandwiched together with a generous serving of vanilla cream and another biscuit finger, the result being a quite substantial looking biscuit, though this doesn't stop me or my family from eating ½ a pack at a time!
Once opened you are faced with around 15 - 20 biscuits, these are held within a plastic sleeve pack, so once opened you will have to place in an airtight container to keep them fresh.
The biscuit is nice and crunchy with there being a very distinct vanilla taste, though until I read the packet for the sake of this review, I hadn't realised it was from the cream!
The cream is thick and again tasty, though with the vanilla taste having permeated throughout the biscuit I wouldn't have realised the cream was so flavoursome.
These I am happy to state, also live up to the rigorous dunking regime that is held in my house, with these being a good single dunker and hold there form for a good few seconds after!
The nutritional information is as follows -
3.2g of which sugars,
1.4g of which saturates,
Allergy advice states that this has been made in a factory that has handled nuts.
Price wise these are available ranging from 50p onwards, though these were purchased for 50p from www.asda.co.uk.

This is a review for a 200g packet of Fox's Rich Tea Creams.
I purchased mine from Sainsburys where they cost 79p for 1 packet or you can buy 2 for £1, making a saving of 58p - thats more earnings than a review!!!
These Fox's biscuits have been around since 1853 so with 157 years of experience its no suprise that they taste devine!
The rich tea biscuit has a gorgeous golden colour and a real nice crunch to it. The best bit for me is the sweet real vanilla cream middle that is sandwiched between the two biscuit fingers.
The biscuits are rather sweet but for me that is the whole purpose! I know of people though that find them too sweet! (yes-I know some crazy people!!)
Not only are these delicious but they also withstand the dunking test, and trust me I've dunked a few in my time!!
As expected these are by no means a healthy option. Each biscuit contains Calories 56, Sugar 3.2g , Fat 2.5g, Saturates 1.4g, Salt 0.08g. This works out as 1 weight watcher point PER BISCUIT!!! And lets be realistic, how many of us can stop at 1?!!!
This product is suitable for Vegetarians but unfortunately they have been made in a factory that uses nut ingredients. They also contain Cows Milk, Soya, Wheat, Gluten, so are of course no suitable for people with allergies against these.
The biscuits have a very long Best before date, they would never be in my house long enough to have to worry about that though! Once they are opened they should be stored in an airtight container.
These are just one variety in the foxs cream range that also includes jam ring creams, golden crunch creams, nice creams, malted milk creams, whipped creams lemon and whipped creams strawberry.
For research purposes only (ha!) I'm making it my mission to taste them all, so look out for more reviews soon!!!
For more information on this superb biscuit as well as lots more tempting varieties you can look at www.foxs-biscuits.co.uk
Fox's Rich Tea Creams were one of those sweets we bought yesterday in Sainsbury's. I opened a pack of them to accompany our coffee as there is such bad weather outside and we almost fall asleep. I don't understand how our kids are so active even when the weather is so boring and sleepy. Anyway, let's see these yummy biscuits.
Price and package
Fox's Rich Tea Creams come in a very simple blue pack. On the left you can see the Fox's logo and on the right there are three biscuits. Below the Fox's logo is written Creams and below the biscuits is written rich tea with real vanilla cream. The pack contains 200 g lovely golden biscuits. A pack of these biscuits costs 84 pence in Sainsbury's but now (28 November 2009) it was on offer for only 50 pence.
There are two golden biscuits filled with vanilla flavour cream. The biscuits are crunchy and sweet. The rectangular biscuits have a decorative frame and within this frame you can read Finger cream with capital letters. The filling is white and creamy. There is enough filling between the biscuits to be visible on each side and sticks well the two biscuits. It is not runny at all. The flavour of the biscuits and the filling is in harmony, this biscuit is perfect. You can have a tea or a coffee this biscuit fits both of them.

I think this is a simple biscuit which is cheap enough to have some near my coffee or tea. As I'm very sweet-toothed I eat sweets almost every day. I think Fox's is one of the best companies in the market of biscuits. They have a lot of premium quality biscuits and this one with vanilla cream filling is one of them. I highly recommend trying them if you like vanilla flavour.
