What can I say about this irresistible snack produced by McVities? They are to die for! I've always enjoyed Jaffa Cakes but recently I've found myself eating them more often - oops! This is probably due to the fact my work has them in the canteen every day but hey, who can resist them? Because I certainly cant! The size of the Jaffa Cake is just perfect. They are the ideal size for snacking in-between meals and not only that, but they contain 25% less calories and 65% less fat than your average chocolate digestive biscuit! My favourite part of these little cake is the sponge on the bottom. Its is quite crumbly, it compliments the chocolate and orange ... Read the complete review

I love Jaffa Cakes - always have done and even more so now as they are one of my "allowed" bits of chocolate that I can eat. I would expect that most people have tried these yummy treats but for the uninitiated here is a little review of the original orange version (For your information as I write this review I have a box of 36 in front of me and currently there are only 34 in there - we shall see how many are left at the end of the review!) McVities Jaffa Cakes are actually owned by United Biscuits who own Jacobs and Hula Hoops to name but a few. They have tantalised the taste buds for over 60 years and have undergone many marketing transformations ... Read the complete review

I've got such a sweet tooth and it's only got worse since I had children! One f my favourites are Jaffa Cakes and I could quite happily polish off a whole box in one sitting.... In case you've been living in a box your whole life, Jaffa Cakes are a 5cm diameter round piece of sponge, covered in dark chocolate with a 'smashing orangey bit' (their words) inside. Some people think that the orange jelly inside is actually made from apricots flavoured with tangerine oil, but if you look at the ingredients, apricots and tangerines aren't mentioned at all. It's just made from orange juice (and sugar and gelatin...) The best way to eat Jaffa Cakes, I ... Read the complete review

There are things in life which puzzle me, which intrigue and amaze me. One of these things is how on earth someone managed to think up the idea of a jaffa cake in the first place, and another is how they make them work. What I mean by that is this. The Humble Jaffa Cake is a sponge base, like a little round fluffy cake, waiting to be gobbled up. A small circle of orange jelly and a chocolate coating. Now the cake, presumable gets cooked first, and the jelly laid on top after, because otherwise the heat of the cooking would melt the jelly. But how does the ehat of the melted chocolate not melt the jelly? This, for me, is the great unanswered question regarding The ... Read the complete review

Jaffa cakes are not really cakes but nor are they biscuits, they exist in a category all of their own. For a lot of people they are one of life's little luxuries. For others they might be less of an extravagance. But no one can deny their addictive qualities. The McVities variety are probably the most popular and are an easy find on supermarket shelves in their blue and orange packs. In each pack you will discover a meagre quantity of twelve biscuits - hardly enough to last an afternoon. The cake consists of sponge bit below and an orange flavoured jelly bit on top. These two modest layers are then enveloped in chocolate that is not too thick. They are sweet ... Read the complete review
