“ Brand: Marks & Spencer / Type: Biscuits / Food quality: Organic food „
I was given these Marks and Spencer Organic gingerbread men as a little thank you present from someone. I hadn't had gingerbread men for ages so was quite pleased. I'm not really a believer in organic food as I do not think the extra expense is warranted as there is no proof that it really makes much difference and sadly most people can't afford to make that big change but I did wonder if I'd notice any particular difference to what gingerbread normally taste like but then again it's very hard to comment unless you have tried the organic and non-organic versions of any one given product.
The packaging of this product was pretty straight-forward. There is a plastic tray which holds nine mini gingerbread men arranged in a 3 x 3 formation. This is surrounded by a cellophane wrap and a cardboard wrap with a picture of a cartoon child or angel (it's hard to tell, he has both wings and arms) standing on a pyramid of gingerbread men.
The gingerbread men are very cute and little and have little vanilla fondant bow-ties (well this is M&S, even the gingerbread men are classy). They are the perfect size for a snack for a child although for me, it was hard not to eat more than one each time. What I particularly liked was the fact that the gingerbread men were not all that gingery. Now for some this would make the product a failure, but the fact that the ginger taste was rather mild makes it less full on and less likely to make your mouth burn and makes it much more suitable for children for whom a strong ginger taste might be overwhelming.
I don't really shop at M & S but if I pop in one day, I'd happily buy these again. I particularly recommend these for parents with little ones. As I did not purchase these myself, I can't say the cost but my guess would be £2/3.
