It's no wonder that I've put on a few pounds lately - all of a sudden I have a list of things to review that I don't usually eat. I'm partial to a plain digestive biscuit in the winter but rarely go for choccie biscuits, however a bright blue packet of chocolate digestives caught my attention in Marks and Spencers recently, I wouldn't normally have bought them but that day I was shopping on an empty stomach and found myself with a basket full of items I would normally never buy.
The packet was not particularly big but because the biscuits were well packed, you actually get more than you think you're getting and layers of biscuits go on for longer than expected, combined with the biscuits filling nature they end up proving pretty good value for money.
Other biscuits pale in comparison to digestives, there's something about their oatyness that is not only delicious but also filling and somewhat comforting, chocolate biscuits without a layer of oaty goodness below are barely worth buying the saltiness of the oats brings out the sweetness of the chocolate and the two compliment each other perfectly.
The Marks and Spencers version of these biscuits are pretty good, perhaps the digestive part is not quite as good as a McVitie but they are very hard to fault and these were a winner with all the family. Stylish, simple, affordable and delicious.
