      A great tasting biscuit

      I love chocolate digestives and usually stick to the popular mcvitities, but on a recent trip to sainsburys I decided to try there own brand ones and I definately wasn't dissapointed! In fact I prefer these to mcvities!

      I was worried they wouldn't taste as good but I really had nothing to worry about, they look the same as normal chocolate digestives, the chocolate isn't very thick, but it's enough and you can taste it well. The biscuits come in a blue wrapper with the picture of them on the front and currently on sale for 86p- much cheaper than McVities ones.

      I find with these that they melt/dissolve more quickly when you dunk them in tea/coffee, but I like that as the McVities ones stay quite solid. I like that they melt and are soft when you dunk them. If you don't dunk them they are crunchy and taste quite sweet.

      Each biscuit contains:
      84kcal
      4.1g fat
      5.0g sugar and 0.19g salt.


      Allergy information: Contains wheat gluten, milk and soya.

      the packet size is 400g.

      Love these chocolate digestives

      As part of the economy drive to reduce the weekly shopping bills, I switched to these own brand chocolate digestives. I absolutely love this kind of biscuit but a couple of packets of McVities or similar soon adds up so this seemed a cheaper option. I'm pleased to say that they've replace the branded biscuits that I previously bought quite nicely and I don't feel like I'm eating something completely inferior.

      THE LOOK
      They look pretty much the same as any other chocolate digestive biscuit really in that it's a digestive biscuit covered with chocolate so there's nothing particularly noteworthy either way in terms of appearance. The chocolate isn't particularly thick but at the same time, it's not as stingey as I was expecting. The digestive part of the biscuit does have a tendency to melt quite quickly so you need to eat them fairly quickly after getting one out of the packet.

      THE TASTE
      They're very crunchy and crumbly and quite messy to eat if you've not got a plate to hand. The overall taste is very sweet and this sweetness lingers for a little bit after you've swallowed as an aftertaste.

      PRICE
      £1.05 for a 400g packet.

      NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION
      Each individual biscuit has: 84 calories, 4.1g of fat (2.1g of saturated fat), 5.0g of sugar, and 0.19g of salt. Per 100g (roughly one-quarter of the packet), this rises to: 494 calories, 23.9g of fat (12.3g of saturated fat), 29.7g of sugar and 1.09g of salt. As you see, it's definitely not the healthiest packet of biscuits you could ever hope to eat, which is why I try to limit my intake to one or possibly two biscuits per day but no more. While I'd probably find it very easy to eat a quarter of a pack, the nutritional information that I've posted here puts me off doing so as some of those numbers are scary!

      Allergy information: Contains wheat gluten, milk and soya.
