Disadvantages: A little boring compared to some confectionery
Penguins have been a lunch box favourite for sometime, in fact I used to get them provided by my mum along with biscuits like Jacob's Clubs all of the while when I was younger. They are very popular in this regard due to their size and their individual cost; I say this as they are more often than not sold in multipacks of say 9 or 27 for example.
A penguin is a chocolate biscuit filled with chocolate cream and then finally coated with chocolate, yes lots of chocolate. They are very crunchy and quite tasty and many people will have eaten one of these or at the very least heard of the brand. In all honesty although these biscuits are perfectly fine and tasty they are not a brand that jump out at me as something I really want to eat, this could be because I had so many of them when I was a child, they were always in the chocolate box along with Breakaways and things like that. They are not as exciting as a Wispa or a Crunchie and I suppose are just a little like a Bourbon biscuit with an extra chocolate coating.
Despite that these are ideal for children due to the colourful packaging and the Penguin pictures on the front; these are perfect for having at parties on a plate. It is also good to note that there are no artificial colours or preservatives in these and each one contains on average 106 calories and 5.6g of fat so as part of an active lifestyle for a young child or and adult would be no bother.
