Tesco Value Biscuit Barrel
Advantages: Cheap and tasty
Disadvantages: Smoke taste to a couple of packs
me and my fiancée love it when the kids have gone to bed and we sit there with our cup of tea and biscuits! But with ever tightening purse strings we we're having to think whether we needed to cut back on the little luxuries we had.
However on my next shopping trip I spotted Tesco's Biscuit barrel pack, it was £1.29 which contained 2 packs of malted milk biscuits, 1 pack of nice biscuits, 1 pack of custard cream biscuits and 1 pack of Bourbon biscuits. Previously I had been spending over £4 on just 3 packs of various types of biscuits so this find was brilliant.
The packaging used to be as pictured above however now they have changed it and i am so glad they have as now it does not look quite so cheap! It is now more modern and bright which makes you more willing to try there own branded biscuits.
The taste of all the biscuits is exactly the same as the brand varieties, they also look exactly the same. The only thing I will say is that over the last couple of months we have bought 2 packs of these and for some reason the malted milk biscuits have had a smokey taste to them almost as if they have been burned, because of these we have had to throw them away. Fingers crossed we were just unlucky and bought an odd couple of packs!
I would say they are worth there money though.
Summary: A good cheap biscuit
