“ Type: Biscuits „
These biscuits have quickly become my favourites- I'm a particular fan of the extremely chocolatey ones, where one side is milk chocolate coated, and the biscuit has more chocolate chunks in it, perfect if you're looking for a chocolate fix, but don't fancy actual chocolate.
The biscuits come in packets of 8, and have around 130 calories per biscuit, so not the healthiest of snacks, but they are worth the occasional indulgence. Priced at around £1.59, these biscuits are currently on offer at Morrisons for half price, 79p- for this price they are a real bargain.
The biscuits themselves are extremely crunchy, and rather thick- I've only ever managed one or 2 a day. They are crumbly and satisfying to bite into- giving that proper biscuity crunch, before dissolving into your mouth. They taste buttery and rich, hence why eating more than a couple is difficult. The chocolate is lovely and milky, overall this product tastes and feels like excellent quality from the first bite until the last.
I was just going to use one word to describe these cookies....Mmmmmmm!! From the first bite right to the last they are just delicious. They are everything a cookie should be. The chocolate coated ones are my favourite, creamy milk chocolate on one side and big chunks of chocolate poking out of the other side. They are crunchy, chocolatey and extremely morish. Even dunked in a hot drink they manage to stay together. They are the type of biscuit that you hide in the cupboard and don't share with anyone else...thats what I do anyway. A downside to these cookies is the price, They are a little on the expensive side but well worth the money.You get 8 cookies in the packet which all come with the extra protection of a plastic tray. They have definatly become my favourite biscuit, nothing else comes close. Foxes pure indulgence cookies certainly live up to their name everyone should try one once in their lives.
I am basing this review on the 'half coated chocolate chunk cookies' these are quite frankly the naughtiest yet nicest things I have ever tasted!
I originally purchased these as they were on an introductory offer in my local Tesco's. I am not a massive biscuit eater but always like to have some in the house to offer guests - normally I wouldn't touch them myself - but how this has all changed now!
I was initially attracted to them by the introductory offer and also by the packaging which just shouted out 'I am a classy biscuit and good enough to offer your visitors!' The name itself and the picture of the side of chocolate chips and a big fat chocolate coated cookie ensured that they were straight in my basket.
The indulgence range is a new range from Fox's who in my opinion are pretty much the kings when it comes to biscuits. I opened these a few days later to share with some friends over a nice cup of tea. You don't get many in a packet only about 9 or 10 which are in a black tray (I always quite like biscuits in trays - more protection - less breakages!).
The biscuit itself is like a home made cookie - not perfectly round but all odd shaped. One side is smooth and covered in a very thick layer of chocolate and on the reverse you can just see the biscuit with chocolate chunks sticking out. They
Have quite an oat based taste to them - which makes them quite chewy - and the chocolate chips and chocolate layer make them taste very, very chocolaty - they really are very good! I didn't bother with any tea dunking as I think they are far too superior in quality for that!
Though there are few in a pack, these bad boys are quite hefty in size so are quite filling - which is an incredibly good thing as I am about to cover the nutritional information! With a whopping 130 kcal per biscuit these are the last things you should have in the house if you are watching your weight! There are also 6.7g of fat per biscuit with 3.5g being saturated fat.
There are other varieties available which I am yet to try and at approx £1.50 per pack at most supermarkets, these are quite on the pricey side for biscuits - but they are a great tasty treat and great to share with guests!
Consumers can chose from four varieties: extremely chocolatey; milk chocolate chip; white chocolate chip; and butter sultana. What's more, reflecting consumer concerns, the range, in line with all Fox's biscuits, is free from Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils (HVOs).
