      Give it a go!

      We were out shopping after breakfast but we were still hungry enough to buy a lot of sweets, so you will read a lot of sweet reviews in the following days. Lol One of them was the Sainsbury's Milk Chocolate Malted Milk Biscuit. Take care that this product looks completely different from the one in the picture of dooyoo.


      Price and package
      --------------------------
      These biscuits come in a dark blue wrapper. Actually it is a very simple and cheap one. There are several biscuits topped to each other on the right side of the wrapper. On the left it is written with white letters: Sainsbury's Milk Chocolate Malted Milk Biscuits. We bought it for 77 pence. It is available only in Sainsbury's (what a surprise!)


      The biscuits
      -----------------
      The biscuits are very nice golden colour and there is a cow on each of them. The other side of the biscuit is coated with the lovely milk chocolate. The biscuits are quite good actually the chocolate cover makes them even better. I prefer the branded biscuits to Sainsbury's, but it wasn't bad at all. I rate them four stars because the branded ones have more delicious biscuit and their chocolate cover it very yummy. This one is very crispy and the chocolate melts in your mouse, it is delicious. I think my problem with the biscuit is that it is not sweet and not malted enough.

      My opinion
      ----------------
      I think I will buy this biscuits from time to time. It wasn't bad at all and 77 pence is not very much for them. The pack contains 250 g biscuits so there are a few to share accompanied with a tea or coffee or hot chocolate. I think you should try them before you decide you like or dislike them. It is cheap enough to give them a go. My son definitely loves it.

      Thanks for reading!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not for me, I prefer the originals!

        I love biscuits and if I had to pick out my favourites up there would be malted milk. You know the original one's that were malty and contained no choccy, well them is what I'm referring to! Plain and simple. However the other day I spotted these and me, well I hadn't see malted milk biscuits with a chocolate coat on before and at 77p a packet I simply had to investigate them!

        The Packaging:

        Dark blue oblong plastic packet. On the front there is a photograph of the biscuits and I'm told they are Sainsbury's Milk Chocolate Malted Milk and there is an at a glance nutritional pye chart on there. On the back of the packet other information includes ingredients and allergy advice being listed (Contains: Milk, wheat gluten & soya), I'm told how to store them, the weight of the product is stated which is 250 grams and there is a full nutritional chart on there and finally contact details for Sainsbury's are given. Easy to open packet this is and within it there are about 32 biscuits lined up and in single file.

        The Biscuits:

        Oblong biscuits which have a golden and slightly rough biscuit base and it's embossed with a picture of a cow and has raised bumps which form a pattern on it. The top of the biscuit is coated with a thin glossy and lightly rippled milk chocolate.

        Taste wise the biscuit is that of a malted milk biscuit. It has a slightly malty taste and is nicely but not overly sweetened however that all gets spoilt actually by the chocolate believe it or not!

        The chocolate isn't rich and/or creamy it's simply sickly sweet, not thick enough but what there is just gives to much sweetness and for no good reason. In fact these would be alot better without the chocolate on them because as soon as you dunk these the base is fine but the thin chocolate dribbles off and into your cuppa!

        Not for me these I never thought something could be spoilt by chocolate...till now lol.

        Nutritional Information per Biscuit:

        Fat: 2.7g
        Sat Fat: 1.4g
        Salt: Trace
        Total Sugars: 3.3g


        Only available in Sainsbury's stores priced at 77p a packet.
