Mcvities Penguin Triple Chocolate Wafer Bar Ive always loved Penguin bars and when I first saw these Penguin Triple Chocolate Wafer Bars I just had to try them. I do admit that the 'triple chocolate' plus the 'wafer' really appealed to me and I couldn't wait to dig in. I bought this pack in Sainsbury's on offer for £1.00, though the RRP is only around 30-40 pence more for a pack of nine which is a great price. Although packed full of chocolate, there are good points to these bars! There are no artificial colours or flavours, they have added calcium (25% of a Childs recommended intake) and have no hydrogenated oil. Surprisingly, ... Read the complete review

I picked these up last week during my weekly shop as they were at the tiny price of 50p for 9 bars! This was from Tesco. The outer wrapping is similar to the regular penguin bars, predominantly red in colour with a large penguin across the front. Once inside the outer wrapper you are greeted by 9 rather small bars. Each bar has a picture of a penguin on the front and similar to regular penguin bars, a joke on the back. This makes them appealing to children as they appear to be fun and interesting. Each bar is around 3 inches long and just under 1 inch wide which I believe to be quite small although they do make good snacks for kids as there are no ... Read the complete review

I am a very fussy eater and am very weary of what I put in my mouth that is until we come to try anything sweet or chocolately then I am game for anything. I generally come across new products either through TV advertising or in store promotions, as I am a sucker for a bargain, so when I saw the end of aisle half price penguin promotions in Tesco I picked these up. They cost 60p for a pack of 9 bars which I thought was good value (I would presume they RRP at £1.20 as this was a half price promo). Each wafer is individually wrapped in the traditional blue and red packaging each one with a penguin on the front and a joke on the back (I can never resist reading ... Read the complete review

I have been buying Penguin biscuits for years, so when I saw these wafers, I just had to give them a go. I am glad to say my whole family enjoyed them, so they will now be another regular resident in our biscuit tin. McVities Penguin Wafers come in the familiar packaging of the original Penguin biscuit, so are easily spotted on the shelf. You get 9 wafer biscuits in the pack for £1.29. When you unwrap a biscuit, you can smell a light, sweet chocolatey aroma. The wafer is quite narrow and is more of a finger, than an average size biscuit. The chocolate on the top and sides is ripped and it does look very appetising. Biting into the ... Read the complete review

I do like a sweet treat mid-morning and try and avoid packets of biscuits where I can as once I start I would certainly need to eat more than just one. So I tend to opt for the smaller individually wrapped chocolate bars as then I can just put one in my bag. I do really like penguins but on my last trip to Tesco I spotted the penguin wafer bars which I thought I would try. The penguin wafers came in a pack of 9 individually wrapped bars for just £1.00. The bars are all individually wrapped in plastic wrappers which are different colours just like the original penguin bars. On the front of the wrapper is a picture of a skiing penguin. On the back of ... Read the complete review
