      I'm sure you can get these in the multipacks like the Hob Nob packs, but I just got an individual bag the other day while at the shop. Vastly overpriced I suspect, but I saw these on the shelf and thought they seemed like a good idea.

      This little bag cost me 48p and wasn't the biggest bag. Afterall you can get a 300g pack of the Biscuits for about £1.30, but a little indulgence can be a good thing. The bag looked a bit different than the Dooyoo picture and was a blue colour.

      Inside the bag these was 8-9 little Digestive Biscuits. I would say they were perhaps the size of a £2 coin, or that little bit smaller. They seemed quite thin as well, but the idea was the same as the full sized Biscuits.

      The covering of Milk Chocolate was good enough, but not that thick a covering. The Biscuit part was crumbly and had that nice malted taste to it. I like the mix of sweet and sort of savoury as well and although there is a lot of these Biscuits out there to choose from then I would say the brand named ones have the edge as they taste that bit more expensive and nicer.

      Although I would say that Chocolate Hob Nobs are my absolute favourite in this kind of Biscuit, these would probably come second. To buy them in this way is certainly a lot more expensive, but it's easier to grab a bag and go.

      McVities Mini Chocolate Digestives - bite size chocolate digestives.

      I really do enjoy the mini range of biscuits, available in supermarkets these days. I find that bars of chocolate are just so expensive, many working out at between 30p and 40p per bar, so these mini packs are much more economical. You still manage to get your chocolate treat, but you are left with a few more pennies in your pocket, afterwards.

      I buy my McVities Mini Chocolate Digestives in a multipack of 6 bags. The outer bag is a strong plastic, which is coloured in the easily recognised McVities, dark chocolate brown and navy blue. The lettering stands out well in white and there are close-up pictures of mini chocolate digestives, dotted over the front of the packaging.

      Inside this bag, you find 6 small 25g bags, in the same packaging, only in miniature this time.
      On opening, you are met with a mouth watering sweet, milk chocolate smell and a lovely aroma of oats. When sitting down to snack, I always have a cup of tea at hand and I can't wait to get munching!

      These digestives look just like the full size ones, but are a cute bite size instead and can easily fit into your mouth in one go. The chocolate is quite thin, but it is creamy, smooth and sweet and just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, without being sickly.
      The wholemeal biscuit base is golden brown in colour and you get a lovely 'crunch' when you bite into it. You can really taste the oats and these do give the biscuit some bite and a bit more to chew on. Once you have given it a chew, you mouth is filled with a gorgeous sweet flavour. I find the combination of the sweet, crunchy biscuit and the smooth creamy chocolate just divine and I could easily eat more than one bag ( but that's just greedy, so I try not to!)

      I have to admit to always getting into a bit of a mess when I eat McVities biscuits, because they are quite crumbly. These biscuits can't really be eaten secretly because as soon as you stand up, you are surrounded by crumbs, but if my pup's around, he'll usually hoover them up!

      McVities Mini Chocolate Digestives are available from Tesco in a 6 pack for £1.37, making them just 23p a pack.

      They are even better value at the moment, because they are on special until 20th April at 3 for £3, so you'd better get in there quick!

      Although these bags do not contain a lot of biscuits, they are enough to fill a space and satisfy a craving. They are much more economical to buy than many chocolate bars and make a nice change from them too.

      I wll definitely be buying them again, especially when they are on special offer.

      5 stars from me : o )

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        .

        I do like little mini things like these and although they can work out expensive, I just like the fact that you can pop a bag of things like these in your bag and munch when you are out.

        An 8 pack of these costs around £1.20 in Tesco, but there was a 2 for £2 deal on the various mini bag packs a couple of weeks ago, so I got them then.

        The bags are little packs which are in a bigger outer bag - just like how Crisps are. The mini bags are the same as the larger bag. The main colouring is a medium brown colour and there is little pictures of the Biscuits on the front as well. The McVities branding is in clear view on the front, and the Nutritional Information on the back.

        I don't have the pack to hand, but remember that each bag had 141 calories.

        There is hardly any Biscuits in the bag. I think there is only 7 of them and they aren't that large either. I would say they are the size of a 10p. They are just mini versions of the larger Biscuits, so a nice Digestive base with some yummy Milk Chocolate on the top.

        They are really tasty. The Base is Malty, a little Salty and breaks up easily enough so it is nice and crumbly. The Milk Chocolate on top is thick enough, and Milky and Sweet.

        The only good things about these is that you can pop them in your bag and eat elsewhere, and they taste so yummy. The bag things are they are pretty expensive, and hardly any Biscuits in the bag. I could probably manage to eat 2-3 bags in a row.

        I am still for these, and would still buy them now and again, but I wouldn't munch them in the house. Would stick to a normal pack of these for that

        Mini Digestives That Are As Brill As The Big Ones

        When I looked in the biscuit tin today I was proper pleased to find that instead of the usual bourbons and custard creams there were bags of Mini Chocolate Digestives, my fave biscuits in the world ever!

        These are wicked biscuits and taste just like the proper sized ones but are just the right size to put a whole one in your mouth and enjoy the flavour of the smooth milky chocolate and wickedly crumbly digestives.

        The digestive has got a sweet wheaty taste that is moorish and strong in flavour and it's goes good with the chocolate. The chocolate is milk chocolate and is creamy as it warms up in your mouth, it melts a bit and then mixes in with the biscuit and then the 2 flavours are perfect together. I think these mini ones are good for a treat because it feels more special eating the little ones from the bag instead of picking a couple up out of the biscuit tin.

        I love the buttery flavour of the biscuit and you could tell they were Mcvities even if you didn't read it on the bag because the biscuits are so yummy that you know they're going to be the original and best digestives. The whole biscuit is sweet but it has also got a savoury taste to it which is delish and these are just plain wicked biscuits that I have always loved but now I know the mini ones are even better than the full sized ones.

        You get about 10 mini digestives in each bag and that's just the right amount I reckon because they are very filling and more would make them sickly. The bags would be good for picnics or packed lunches or just any time of day that you fancy something nice to eat.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great snack, as good as the original biscuits.

        McVitie's make some great biscuits, and these are more of the same. They combine great quality as you would expect from the brand, with the same winning formula from the original biscuits only in a smaller form. They taste great, they are great value for money but aren't very filling and do get broken very easily if being transported around.

        The packaging is very simple, easy to notice on the shelf. The text is clear and it can be opened easily. It's always fresh but they are usually broken if you have been transporting them as the plastic is very thin, leaving lots of little pieces that fall out all over the floor. You get quite a lot in the packet, enough to make it seem like they are good value.

        The quality of the product is exactly as you would expect from the brand. With thick chocolate and nice digestive, you get great value for money knowing that you are eating the best. They are always fresh, but the packaging needs to be sorted out.

        The price is also superb, with enough packets to get everyone through the week for the small price of £1. Each does contain a good amount to make it look good value, but they aren't particularly filling, so sometimes other items would be a better choice.

        When you open the packet, a sensational sweet, rich smell drifts out and into your nose. This, combined with the delicious look will make you reach for one. As soon as they enter your mouth, the chocolate starts to melt. This is silky smooth, and very creamy. Following, the digestive is crumbly, and provides the rich flavour to the biscuit. These combine together and taste amazing. The soft chocolate and crumbly biscuit create a fantastic texture too.

        In conclusion, a fantastic product that delivers on the promise. They are just as good as the original, with high quality and a beautiful taste. However, they aren't that filling and they can become broken in the thin packaging.

        A great snack

        McVitie's are a well known brand of biscuits and all things yummy, I recently tried the Mini Milk Chocolate Digestives. The bag was not much bigger than my hand and just the right size to fit into my hand bag. The contains only 25 grams, which is approximately 7 biscuits.

        The bag is McVities blue and brown (a milky chocolate brown) with mini digestives on. It also says there are no artificial colours or flavours. Which I think is important, I don't want artificial flavours, I want yummy real ones. The bag is also made out of plastic. These Mini bags of McVities come in multi bags that can be purchased in all supermarkets and contain 6 mini bags.

        The fat of saturates per pack is 3.2 grams, the fibre is 0.7 grams, and the energy (kcal) per bag is 124 and contains 0.1g of salt.

        These are a great size for children, and adults snacks.

        They are quite moreish though and this can be annoying as you will want another packet although that could just me being greedy.

        The biscuits themselves are McVities digestives but a mini variety coated on one side with lovely milk chocolate.

        There is one major fault with these biscuits - they are not dunkable, there is no way to dunk at all in to a cup of tea.

        I really enjoyed these, they are very tasty and very easy to fit in a bag to save for later.

          Disadvantages

          well worth a try if you can find the whole pack for 62p

          When I saw these today in Iceland for only 62p I just HAD to buy them didn't I? All thoughts of healthy foods went out of the window & I told myself I was buying them for may daughter as a treat - FAT CHANCE!

          I've never been disappointed with McVities products & I wasn't so with these mini choc digestives especially at this price.

          The large plastic bag contains 6 smaller ones which weigh 25g each.

          There are 7 lovely round mini digestives in each bag & it's too easy to pop a whole one in at a time - or 2 mouthfuls if you're a true lady or gent.

          The texture is lovely & crunchy (as you'd expect from the larger ones) & there's a generous amount of chocolate which makes them perfect with a nice cup of whatever you fancy.

          The heat-sealed outer bag & individual bags means that they stay fresh - if you can keep from eating them that is!

          I also think they'd be nice with ice-cream or frozn yoghurt to add a bit of crunch?

          The dark brown bag tells me that the milk choc digestives contain no artificial colours or flavours & contain no hydrogenated vegetable oil but contain milk, soya, gluten & are produced on a line handling nuts - a shame this as many people may not be able to eat them.

          They're described as being 'great for on the go' (which they indeed are) but I think they deserve being eaten with the feet up watching a good TV programme (if you can find one?)

          The packaging provides quite a lot of interesting reading including a healthy website website -www.123healthybalance.com - McVities' quality guarantee , full ingredients & nutritional information.

          I wish I hadn't read that each little pack has 124 calories, 15.5 carb & 6.2g of fat - good job I gave my daughter some after all isn't it?!

          I've tried McVities mini hob-nobs (really good) & their mini choc chip cookies - which is the best? hmmm - in my opinion the hob nobs quickly followed by these choc digestives.

          summary
          ~
          - VERY good price at the moment at Iceland (at 21st April).
          - lovely & crunchy with a generous amount of chocolate.
          - may be a bit too small for dunking?
          - very moreish.
          - not healthy but good for a treat & for those 'must have something sweet' moments.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            These are really great for a snack anytime anywhere!

            It has to be said that you should never go shopping on an empty stomach but I seem to always end up in Tesco's practically drooling over the food, but it's not all bad because if I hadn't been so hungry then I wouldn't have grabbed these mini digestives from McVities.
            And I have to say that they are just the cutest little biscuit I have ever seen though it didn't admire them for too long as I was so peckish. They have the wonderful Moorish taste just like the larger ones but there's something different about them- I think it was just that they were a little harder as though they had condensed more biscuit into that little shape.

            It has to be said though that you can avoid one problem and that's the dreaded crumbs after all you can fit a whole biscuit in your mouth.

            Overall they hit the spot but I still prefer the normal size biscuit.

            Also my one tip is that if you buy them have a drink ready, as you'll really need it.

              Disadvantages

              Tastes good and better for you than a whole big packet

              This is the twin review to the previously reviewed hob nobs. As I bought them, ate them, reviewed them together. The layout is very similar but the important information differs.

              These packs consist of 6 mini bags weighing 25g each of mcvities milk chocolate digestives they are in a brown bag which appears to be the match for the packaging of the big biscuits. and they have the usual Mcvities blue edging. . There is a large McVities Mini Digestives milk chocolate title on the front. Also flashed across the front are what McVities consider to be the biggest selling points of the biccys.


              Again - No artificial flavours or colours Something I like to see

              Again - No hydrogenaged Vegetable Oil I try not to buy anything which contains this

              Unfortunately there is no mention of wholemeal goodness or source of fibre as there is on the hobnobs packet

              I love these little mini bags. We are not big biscuit eaters and often if we open a big packet of chocolate digestives etc. they are left without being wrapped up or put in a container and some if not all have to thrown out because they are soft. This way you get enough for one cup of tea and the rest stays fresh until you take another wee craving.

              They are also great for kids lunchboxes and if you have a kids party coming up soon they take up a good amount of room if you are struggling to fill party bags and the kids love them.

              As you are only getting a small bag the calorie count is 124kcal which isn't ridiculously high and it only contains 0.1g of salt per packet. I suppose the chocolate topping is why these are higher than the hobnobs in calories

              On opening you will find the packets inside are designed in the same way as the big bag. The biscuits inside are approx.1 inch in diameter.

              Again I tried the dunking as I realize that others require this information. They are so small, less than an inch across so I was careful trying not to burn my fingers in the tea. I dunked once quite quickly. The chocolate became a little runny but I got it away from the cup before it dripped, like the hobnob it also stayed together no eucky crumby bits looked to be floating in my cup. I put the entire biscuit in my mouth as it was too small for a second dunk. I didn't enjoy this dunk as much as the hob nob as runny chocolate doesn't do it for me I continued eating the biscuits dry. The biscuit was crunchy and the chocolate tasted like it was a quality chocolate.rather than a cooking chocolate type taste.

              My Recommendation - Go on treat yourself you'll not regret it
