“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Biscuits „
If like me you enjoy the combination of chocolate and orange then you will most probably enjoy these orange chocolate sandwich biscuits from Tesco.
They cost just over a pound for a packet containing 14 biscuits, which to me seems like good value for money.
The chocolate on the biscuits is quite nice considering how cheap they are and it complements the crunchy biscuit layer and the delicious orange cream centre very well.
Each biscuit is individually wrapped in a bright orange wrapper so they are always very fresh, the biscuits are about the same size as say a Penguin biscuit so average in size but above average in quality and taste.
Each biscuit contains 130 calories, 6.4g of fat and nearly 10g of sugar so they are quite a fattening biscuit for their size but I Guess we do not expect our biscuits to be slimming aids do we so I cannot really knock them for this.
I think these are very tasty biscuits, very high in quality and a real bargain at only 8p per biscuit and they are certainly a biscuit I would recommend to others as long as they like orange because the predominant taste here is one of orange.
I love these biscuits!
My Dad bought them for my brother's packed lunches as they are an ideal size and individually wrapped.
The biscuits are Tesco's own brand and are in a long orange oacket, with pictures of the biscuits on the front. The biscuits are individually wrapped inside in an orange wrapper that is easy to open.
The biscuits cost about £1 for 14 although are occasionally on offer - but £1 for 14 biscuits isn't bad anyway!
The biscuit itself is like a Penguin biscuit, and I know that Tesco also do milk chocolate and also mint versions of this too.
The chocolate coating is milk chocolate and I am not sure if it is also flavoured with orange but the orange flavouring is very intense.
Underneath the generous chocolate coating are two crunchy chocolate biscuits. These are lovely and very crunchy and moreish!
Sandwiched between the two biscuits is an orange cream and the flavour of this really permeates the whole biscuit making the orange very intense and flavoursome.
The biscuits do contain milk, gluten and soya and are made in an area where nuts are around, so these are not suitable for everyone.
The flavour is very similar to a chocolate orange which is lovely!
The biscuits are the perfect size for a sweet snack in your lunchbox or with a cup of tea.
With 130 kcal, they are not exactly healthy - but what biscuit is?!
Tesco Orange Chocolate Sandwich Biscuits
Off late I have been eating these biscuits quite regularly.
The package really sets the tone for you, with a tempting picture of the chocolate sandwich biscuits. When I first saw it in Tesco it was an impulse pick up for me as the package really stands out in the shelf.
I decided to have the first bite before reaching home. The sandwich bars are individually wrapped in bright orange fresh wrappers.I always like this packaging approach as you can consume the rest of the bars at a later time at your convenience without being forced to eat the entire one at one go.
As the name suggests I find the thick orange cream is layered between the milk biscuits and there by offering you a perfect temptation to eat through to reach to the orange creamy stuffing. The chocolate biscuits are of really good taste and I find the outer layer quite crunchy. I would like to highlight that Tesco has really maintained the biscuits quality.
I liked this chocolate orange bars especially with the throw away price of £1 for fourteen bars. I would like to suggest you that in case you have no reservation for orange taste then go for this delectable combination of chocolate biscuit and orange cream for a perfect experience.
Treasure the taste. Enjoy!
Tesco Orange Chocolate Sandwich Biscuits are an absolute bargain buy and one of the cheaper Tesco products that I've been really pleased with. They cost £1.05 for a packet of 14 bars, which works out at just 8p each. That's only 2p more per bar than the rather vile Tesco Value biscuit bars.
These bars come individually wrapped in bright orange wrappers, inside their multipack wrapper. The wrappers are sturdy and have withstood quite a lot of being thrashed around during transit by yours truly. I think it makes them ideal for use in lunchboxes or bags, as some biscuit bars with cheap wrappers just don't manage even short journeys.
Inside each wrapper, the bars are about as thick as your average biscuit bar, say a Fox's Triple or a Rocky bar (though a different shape of course). These appear to be a little bit on the thin side, but the big flavour more than makes up for that.
The milk chocolate on these is much better quality than I was expecting. I'm not a fan of a lot of Tesco chocolate products, but I think this tastes pretty decent. Perhaps part of that is because of the way it compliments the biscuit and orange cream flavour so well.
The chocolate biscuit is quite crumbly and crunchy, but there's plenty of moisture in there to keep it bound firmly together. In between the two layers of chocolate biscuit there's a good generous helping of orange cream. The orange cream is sweet but not too sugary, and it's got a really powerful, fruity flavour to it that I really like.
I think these are a real bargain buy, and I'll happily continue to buy them in the future. They make great snacks for adults, and aren't bad as treats for kids either. Each bar has 130 calories, 6.4g of fat and 10g of sugar. They're a far cry from being healthy but they're better than a standard bar of chocolate - and more filling too.
