McVitie's Dark Chocolate Digestives
Disadvantages: Ignore the guilt
In the event that the regular biscuit location has been savaged by either my son or my wife, I can sit back safe in the knowledge that there is a place not so far away where I can recoup my sanity and indulge until my hearts content.
For it is in this place that I store my secret stash, well they really aren't so secret since my wife and I do do the weekly shop together so she is aware of the purchase. The location remains as yet undiscovered, but should fate not be on my side and it is suddenly not a secret anymore I can still rest quite safely since only my son likes dark chocolate apart from myself, who simply likes anything chocolate.
The range of biscuits manufactured by McVities is totally awesome and none more so than the digestive. On it's own a digestive biscuit is both tasty, a little sweet and satisfying, what more could you ask for of a biscuit?
Well McVitie asked the very same question and came up with a thin layer of chocolate....................masterful, simply masterful. An instant hit, just about every other biscuit manufacturer has copied the chocolate digestive, and rightly so it's a pure gem of a biscuit. Most chocoholics satisfied, McVitie did not rest or their laurels, they came up with a even more masterful masterstroke, they made them with dark chocolate so the true chocoholic could enter biscuit heaven.
The simple formula of a digestive was totally changed when they place this layer of dark chocolate upon the digestive, it added that kick that little sparkle that turns a good biscuit into a great biscuit. A large packet of these is going to set you back around £1.48 in ASDA, but they are frequently on offer in all the major stores so shopping around is the best policy.
When you take even a small bite of a dark chocolate digestive you know you are in for a treat from the start, even more so if you have tasted the milk chocolate variety. You can smell the chocolate and the bicuitiness of the digestive. Your anticipation isn't let down, and the interaction between the biscuit and the chocolate is a texture heaven. Smooth chocolate and crispy crunchy biscuit, sweet and bitter, tasty and delightful and bang your into overdrive and half the packet is gone.
They are addictive, as of course are a lot of biscuits, and eating a good few in one sitting is not uncommon so don't feel you have let yourself down, you have simlpy indulged in a piece of biscuit magic and tasted one of the best offerings the biscuit industry has to offer, how could it possibly be your fault. If perchance you ( are and you most probably be ) also indulging in a cuppa of some kind then you may also have found it impossible not to dunk at least one of the biscuit, again there is no need to feel guilt this is the natural progression from taking small bites and enjoying to getting tore right in their my son.
Well you may or may not like a biscuit with your cuppa, but if you do or indeed should you just feel a little peckish you can do a lot worse than have a few choccie digestives with it, and should you feel it too early in the morning for dark try the milk. Which ever you decide upon do not feel guilty in the least, in these days of cash strapping and penny pinching one needs to indulge every so often just to keep the insanity at bay, and what better way than a cuppa and a biscuit.
Summary: One of the best biscuit ever
