“ Brand: Nestle / Type: Biscuits „
I am not a huge fan of rolos the sweets, I find them too rich and very stodgy, and I don't really like nestle chocolate. So when my husband picked these up as a snack the other day at Sainsburys, I didn't have much enthusiasm towards them.
You get 5 fairly large cookies in a bag, and they are usually about £1.00 from Sainsburys.
I was actually starving at the time so decided to eat one, or at least try it, and it was actually really nice.
The cookie itself was a bit sweet, crumbly but quite chewy, it was crispy on the edges and a bit chewier towards the middle, it had big blobs of chocolate in some places and some quite hard yet small bits of toffee in it too. The chocolate was actually really nice and the toffee too, and with the cookie they all went together perfectly.
I could only eat one of these, as they were quite hard and it gave me a bit of jaw ache from all the chewing, but I will say I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The cookies did not remind me in the slightest of an actual rolo sweet, but I was glad of that. They were tasty and sweet, and the chocolate and toffee were a nice extra part of the cookie, and for roughly £1.00 they were quite a good price.
I would say that my favourite type of Biscuits are Cookies. Although the ones in the pack from the Biscuit aisle are nice, the fresh baked ones such as these ones are nicer than any packet ones.
I've seen these in Tesco and Asda and they cost £1.05 for a 5 pack. The Cookies are quite large in size as well, and although not a perfect circulat shape, they look sort of home made with the wobbly edges.
Not that much packaging in this, the Cookies are stacked on top of each other, and they are in a thick enough paper bag. The top folds over and is stuck with a label which keeps them fresh enough. Also since the top has already been folded over then even though the sticker has been ripped then they still stay fresh enough with the fold in the paper. There is a little window on the pack where you can see the Cookies through it, which lets you see the Cookies all crumbly, with Chocolate chunks, Caramel swirls and they are a medium Biscuit-y-Brown colour.
The only nod to the Rolo brand is the Chocolate and Caramel, which obviously is what Rolo's are made with. I would say that the Caramel and Chocolate tastes like the nestle Rolo's anyway and it all goes together nice enough.
I could eat a couple of these in a row and they are filling enough and sweet. They taste lovely and the Chocolate and Caramel bits are plentiful and mixed through just right.
Unfortunately there is no nutritional information on the pack, so I cannot comment on how many calories or fat are in the pack, but I guess they aren't that good for you. But they taste so good!
Fresh Homebaked tasting Cookies that are alright value for money. The range is also available in Munchie, Smartie and Toblerone versions.
These are one of my favourite treats and only cost 99p for five, yay!
I remember when these first came out along with Smarties and I pestered until I got a pack of each to try - they were only £1.50 for both packs so that was a pretty cool bargain!
The Rolo cookies are sold in paper packets with the name across the front in big red letter, the bag is brown so that must be to denote the milk chocolate content I expect...
The cookies themselves are huge, like a saucer sized snack so I'm only allowed one at a time because of the sugar and fat content but they keep for a few days :)
There is nothing to separate the biscuits so they can get a bit sticky and break easily as they are really soft.
The texture is chewy and quite heavy and each cookie is a different shape so they must be hand made...
I find them quite bendy and fun to play with (don't play with your food though kids, lol), unless you get a batch that is overcooked and then they are not so nice (:
The taste is gorgeous and different because you get chocolate, toffee and soft crumbly cookie mixture all churned together! The cookies are light brown in colour and about half an inch thick each.
They taste really sweet and moreish; I could easily eat two as I love the soft caramel in Rolos and the creamy Nestle chocolate too. The aftertaste is really nice and I enjoy it as long as possible.
The Rolos themselves are squashed into the dough and then cooked, it makes them look really funky as each one is individual looking :)
It a really great idea to mix sweeties into a soft style biscuit although there's a real sugar buzz to them after you've eaten one...
Five stars from me and my satisfied sweet tooth, lol!
NESTLES ROLO COOKIES
I recently moved into a new flat, and my local supermarket is now Sainsbury,s. They have some good offers in there store.
I noticed on their shelves Rolo Cookies, and as they were only a £1.00 thought i would buy, some as my grandaughters often come over and they love anything like that.
The Package **********
They come in a bag, brown bag and there is five rolo cookies in their, the bag is sealed with a sticky label easy to open. There is a picture of a rolo chocolate on the front of the pack.
Nestles and rolo written in red.
The Taste ********
They are quite soft when you bite into them, and they have loads of bits of what i would describe as melted down rolos.
They are yummy, and my grandaughters absolutely love them too.
Wheat flour, skimmed milk, sugar of course its a sweet product, milk chocolate, whole egg powder, golden syrup, and flavouring, coco butter, and raising ingredients, coco mass and loads of other stuff ( dont want to bore you too much).
May contain traces of NUTS and/or SEEDS, so be careful, if you have allergies.
I think that these cookies are great value for money, good to pop into a picnic bag, great to have in the cupboard, they dont have a great shelf life, lol well not with my family !
I usually try to keep my eating habits on the healthy side and to have a good balance to my diet however occasionally I sort of fall off the wagon and have a spurge on something which is definately not healthy and that was the case when I bought a bag of five Rolo Cookies the other day as they were on special offer of a £1 and the sad fact is that I ate three of them pretty much in one go with a coffee and the other two followed these a day later.
They are large round cookies and they have a lovely chewy texture to them, I prefer chewy cookies to the crunchy variety. Within the nice biscuit you have small choolate chips and also some mini rolos on top as wel and they have that lovely caramel centre that helps make the cookie even chewier.
They are very sweet tasting however I found eating them alongside a coffee offset the seet taste a bit with the slightly bitter coffee which I take black.
I must admit I felt a bit bloated and sickly after consuming these and they are probably not something I would buy again just because they make me feel like a bit of a pig when I eat so many in one go.
I'd like to introduce you all to todays breakfast. Starting off with half a cup of water, 3 tablets, a cup of tea and then 5 rolo cookies. Not exactly the healthiest of starts to the day and right now I feel stuffed to the rafters because of it. There isn't any nutritional information on the packaging but I'm guessing that I've consumed quite a lot of calories, sugar and fat content all in one go, so is it any wonder I'm not moving around the place very quickly!
These cookies are basically your chewy variety with mini rolos and milk chocolate chips. As the mini rolos still have their toffee centre it means that through the process of cooking the chocolate has clearly slightly melted, making the toffee spread out a bit. In some places you bite into a very sweet toffee taste and which can sometimes be a bit burnt or crunchy because of the heat. This is generally around the edges.
They are also quite sticky and might make your hands smell a bit odd afterwards. I do advise having some kind of drink whilst eating because they can leave your mouth feeling very dry and are also a bit sickly because of how sweet they are.
The taste is actually quite odd and I don't know whether I'll bother to buy them again, if I'm completely honest these were on sale for 50p when they usually cost £1.25 so that was what influenced me, you get the sweet taste but there's something else there which makes the flavour not all that pleasant. It slightly reminds me of honey. Then you get the chocolate from the rolos and the chips although they seem to of formed a group in the centre of the cookie so once you get to it, it's sickly sweet which is why you need a drink. The toffee doesn't really come through with it, it's basically a wierd combination.
The cookies come in a thick paper type bag but once you have opened them you won't be able to reseal them again. There is no indication that you can recycle them either.
It does mention on the packet that they are not suitable for freezing although I'm a bit unsure as to why you'd want to do that in the first place and that you should eat within a few days of opening. Personally these types of cookies in our house don't last more than 20 minutes so there's no problem with them going stale.
Although there is no nutritional information there is a long list of all the ingredients, I doubt very much that you're interested but for the minority:
wheat flour, sugar, mini rolos, dried skimmed milk, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, whey powder, butterfat, emulsifiesrs, glucose fructose syrup, sweetended condensed skimmed milk, vegetable fat, salt, butter oil, whole milk powder, water, vegetable oil, glucose syrup, whole egg powder, golden syrup and raising agents.
'The cookies may also contain traces of nuts and/or seeds'
For 5 well sized cookies I wouldn't say they weren't worth the money. I think for the full price however of £1.25 I wouldn't opt for them again.
If you like your cookies chewy, sweet and full of chocolate bits then these are the ones for you although I suggest that you don't eat a whole packet to yourself, it doesn't matter how hungry you are.
Nestles Rolo Cookies are possibly the greatest food in the world! I have been buying these cookies every week for about a year now.
They are white cookies, baked with mini rolos and milk chocolate chips in them. When the mini rolos melt during baking they leave the cookies soft and chewy.
Rolo Cookies are available from most super markets for around £1.10. They are usually with the bread or fresh baked product. They are baked in store each day. This can cause a little bit of a problem. Each store bakes them differently. Although the taste never differs, some super markets over bake them and make them too hard for my likings (most people prefer tham like this). I love them when they havn't been over cooked and are really soft and chewy.
They come in brown paper packaging with Rolo written in big red letters. Each pack contains 5 generously sized cookies. The lable says 'Best consumed on day of purchase' but I cant bring myself to eat all 5 cookies in one day. They will last for about 3 or 4 days if stored well.
There isnt anything on the packet to tell you the nutrition values but im guessing they are very high in fat, sugar and calories!
During a trip to a supermarket following an exam and pre revision session for a major exam, me and a housemate went to find yummy food to keep us going. Snacks are essential to go with the strong coffee when you revise til 2am!
We passed the bakery section (we tried to walk past, but...) and we saw cookies, particularly rolo cookies! I'd never tried them before, and although I have a sweet tooth, I don't really eat cookies but I adore rolos! I picked up the packet and read the small text on the front saying "soft chewy cookies containing little rolo (milk chocolate with a soft toffee centre) and milk chocolate cups".
The packaging is brown and yellow, to signify the chocolate and toffee of the rolos. On the outside, the packaging is paper, but on the inside it feels like laminated paper... It has the nestle logo as is on all nestle products and "rolo" is written in the same font as it is on rolo tubes (trust me, I practically know rolo packets like the back of my hand :-P), and in swirly writing above "rolo" it has "made with real" which follows onto the logo. Above the writing, are pictures of rolos, which are making my eyes water just looking at them!! The back of the packaging is the same, although it adds "do you love anyone enough" in the same font as the front that says "made with". Underneath this is the ingredients list.
Ingredients: wheat flour, sigar, mini rolo [14%] (milk chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, dried skimmed milk, cocoa mass, whey powder, butterfat, emulsifiers, (soya lecithin, E476), flavouring), glucose-fructose syrup, sugar, sweetened condensed skimmed milk, butterfat, vegetable fat, salt, flavouring), butter oil, milk chocolate chips [7%] (sugar, whole milk powder, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, emulsifier (soya lecithin), flavouring), water, vegetable oil, glucose syrup, whole egg powder, golden syrup, raising agents (E500, E450), flavouring, salt.
May contain traces of nuts and/or seeds.
Underneath says "best consumed on day of purchase" and "not suitable for home freezing" (but don't worry about that because they don't last long enough to go off!!). The day of purchase bit is only because they don't stay as soft as when you buy them, but they don't go off or bad or anything.
I brought them in morrisons for £1.09, although they tend to have them on offer for 2 for £1.60. Tesco sell the packets on their own for £1.09 also, but currently have them on £1.50 for 2.
The cookies themselves are very thick and they are quite big as well, 1 cookie is filling when you have it as a snack. They have large chocolate lumps in them, with bits of toffee around the cookie. There is definately enough chocolate and toffee in them to be tasting of rolo. The texture is soft and chewy like the packet says. However I think the text on the front stating they are soft and chewy should be bigger and more prominently displayed because that is what sold it to me. We put the packet down on the floor that we were revising on, and everyones eyes were drawn to the cookies... and for good reason!
