Mikado White Chocolate Biscuit
Advantages: TASTY, SWEET AND MOREISH
Disadvantages: NOT AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE, QUITE EXPENSIVE
Mikado aka Pick Up Sticks are made by Kraft foods. They are basically biscuit sticks which have been covered in chocolate. They are available in Milk or White chocolate.
The biscuit sticks are housed in a foil bag. They are the put in a tall cardboard box similar to an oversized cigarette packet. There is a perfortrated opening lid.
The white chocolate variety box is a creamy colour. The front has the Mikado name in big letters, some nutritional information and some images of the biscuits and chocolate pieces.
The back of the box gives you the nutrition and contact details for Kraft. The ingredients can be found on the side of the box. The box is notably to be recycled.
The biscuits are long and quite thin. The chocolate coating covers approx 4/5 of the biscuit and the rest is left bare to avoid sticky hands. The biscuit itself is a light golden colour and the chocolate is thick in comparison and creamy in colour.

*Availability and Price*
These don't appear to be as easy to find as the Milk chocolate variety however Asda currently have these at 74p for a 70g pack. Normal price is £1.18.
I am sure we have all send the advert..the lady climbing on top of the photo copier to reach the Mikado sticks when the man walks in and it looks like she is taking a copy of her bits and pieces. When these were released, I didn't fancy trying them as I am funny with chocolate..I like Cadbury and Mars and didn't even realise these were made by Kraft. I am very fond of white chocolate and I first sampled these delights in Barcelona in March. Finding them over here was a nightmare but thanks to Asda, I have a box.
I would offer you one but I seem to have eater them all so haha!
The box these come in is quite cool and the foil does a great job of keeping the sticks fresh. They are a good size and the right thickness to avoid being sickly.
I like how there is a end without chocolate as I really hate getting in a sticky mess. The biscuit has a nice crunch to it. It tastes slightly overcooked at bits on the outside which is really tasty and perfectly cooked and light in the inside.
The chocolate is creamy and not that far from tasting like the white chocolate on a Nestle Crunch bar. It isn't sickly but it his sweet. The coating is quite thick and that and the biscuit compliment each other wonderfully.
Now you get about 25 biscuits in the pack and I managed to eat them all in 5mins. I know that sounds totally greedy and I really should have left some for you all. But in reality, these are too moreish and my hand kept reaching into the box with me knowing.
Try these :)
