Never before have I sampled any 'Weight Watchers' branded food, and this latest review is the result of me finding a couple of the diet-friendly chocolate bars which were left behind from my aunt's recent visit.
"Delicious crunchy double chocolate biscuits, wrapped in real Belgian milk chocolate".

You can currently purchase the five bar multipack of the Weight Watchers Chocolate biscuits for £1.40 from Tesco.
Although specifically devised for those on the Weight Watchers plan, it must be noted that a chocolate biscuit is still a chocolate biscuit no matter who makes it - and as such, this particular one contains 87 calories per bar - which, although less than a regular chocolate bar of a similar size, is still no substitute for a healthier snack.

The bars themselves are small, and around the size of a 'Penguin' (that's the Mcvities variety, not the flightless bird). The chocolate on the outside has a rippled effect, and biting into them reveals a biscuity interior. The chocolate itself is pleasant - but it doesn't really taste like the creamy and rich chocolate that I am used to - the flavour is of a kind of sanitized and somehow unusual chocolate, which, although pleasant, is slightly unnerving.
The biscuit part is a little dry - but actually, when combined with the chocolate, the bar as a whole is surprisingly tasty.

Although I was ready to dislike them before I had even tried them, Weight Watchers Chocolate Biscuits are by no means bad, and represent a lower calorie alternative to the fat-packed bars made by the mainstream brands. The taste is different - but not unpleasant, and I would certainly eat them again.
