These biscuits are tasty and rich, with a good layer of chocolate on top. They're great for dipping in tea/coffee - but my mother does have a tendency to drop half the biscuit in the tea, she does that with pretty much every brand of biscuit though so I think that the problem is with her not with the biscuits (and luckily she has limited interest in the interweb and doesn't know my dooyoo name so is not going to yell at me! (cue evil laugh.)) I've never dropped half the biscuit in my coffee anyway, though I do occasionally drop large pieces on the floor.
They are a lovely rich biscuit, but sometimes I find that they can cause indigestion, particularly if you have a couple. Maybe this is some ingenious plan to prevent people becoming over-weight through too many biccies - because you really don't feel like having too many biccies with these. Good for moderation I suppose!
The packaging is a little different now to what is shown on the dooyoo page - the font, for a start, screams at you a bit less (which in my opinion can only be a good thing!)
These biscuits do crumble - tiny crumbs get everywhere, but I don't really mind that. Most biscuits crumble but these do leave a lot of crumbs even in comparison. They don't make as much mess as, say, a Cadbury's flake, which was invented, I'm convinced, by someone with a rather large share in a vacuum cleaner factory, but it's still fairly noticeable.
I good biscuit then, of the everyday as opposed to the luxury variety.
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.
