Advantages: Tasty treat and not messy.
Disadvantages: May contain nuts.
I'm reviewing MIKADO Biscuit Sticks. They are made by Kraft Foods UK .
I bought these in POUNDWORLD at two for £1, and I've also seen them in Tesco for £1.
On the contents list it says ***MAY CONTAIN NUTS***
I would point out that there are no nuts in these per se, but they are manufactured in an area where nut products are also produced , hence the necessary warning for those with extreme nut allergies.
=WHAT ARE THEY EXACTLY=
They are very long thin crispy crunchy biscuit sticks......slightly thicker than Chocolate Matchmakers,but not as thick as a cigarette, and they are coated in milk chocolate from the top to within about an inch of the bottom. The bottom 3cms or so is left bare of chocolate so that you can hold them without getting chocolate on your fingers, which is a nice clean touch.
There are roughly 25-30 biscuit sticks in the pack and they each are approximately 15cms long.
These are also available now in a caramel flavour which just means that there are tiny knobbly bits of caramel added to the milk chocolate coating which gives a nice toffee taste to the sticks.
They also come covered in white chocolate, and I'm told they can be found covered in dark chocolate, but I personally haven't seen the dark ones around yet.
They come in a long thin cardboard box and it is perforated just below the top in such a way that when you tear the perforations the top flips back ......just exactly like a long thin cigarette packet.
Inside there is a silver foil pack containing the biscuits. The foil pack has a serrated top for easy tearing open.
These are a delicious little treat for any time really, but usually I like them in the evening while watching TV. I also think they'd be nice as a snack with morning coffee and due to their construction (with the 'clean' bit at the bottom for handling ) they'd not be a messy thing in the manner some fully chocolate covered snacks often are.
They are also just right for children , easy to eat, not bursting with additives and colours and not needing the excessive chewing that can damage little teeth.
The fact that they can be handled cleanly is a bonus when given to children.
I must say I love the unusual packaging for these . It's very well thought out in my opinion because the internal foil bag the sticks come in can be folded over to keep them fresh, and the cigarette style outer box closed securely when you want to save some for later.
I've tried three variations of these, the milk chocolate , the white chocolate and the caramel ones and they are all delicious.
The quality was equally good on each variation too .
These are selling at two pks for £1 in my local POUNDWORLD at present, which is a bargain , and the only one I've not seen available is the dark chocolate one.
I'm removing one star simply because there are other treats I would opt for over these if I really HAD to choose.
Summary ,a nice light treat for when sat watching TV.
Summary: A tasty biscuit treat that is a bit different.
