      A yummy biscuit treat, organic but very crumbly

      I popped out of the office to get my lunch and decided to go into Waitrose for a change. Whilst browsing the shelves I wanted something to nibble on, walking down the biscuit aisle I spotted some new biscuits I had never seem before.

      They are called 'Jumbles' with a sub heading 'organic' and a description of the biscuits inside, written underneath, the choices I had were:
      Choc chip Crumblies
      Sultana and hazelnut Crumblies
      Oat Nibbles
      Wheat Nibbles

      As they were on offer (2 for £1.70) I decided that I would have to try two packs, and chose the first two listed above.

      This review is about the choc chip ones, a review about the sultana and hazelnut will follow.

      Yumbles are bought to us by McVities, and according to their website these are the first Organic biscuits they have made, which surprised me somewhat, considering the range they produce, and the length of time they have been supplying us with biscuits/snacks this is something I thought they would have done sooner.

      Inside the plastic packaging you find a plastic tray, with 3 compartments, each has 4 biscuits inside.

      To look at them, they don't look any different to a choc chip cookie, there are plenty of choc chips found through the biscuit.

      When taking the first bite you notice that they do have a little crunch to them, but the main thought is how crumbly they are. You will notice crumbs dropping away onto your lap or desk, you will therefore need to hold your hand under your mouth or take in a little breath as you bite, I find that this prevents too much mess.

      As well as the crunchiness of the biscuit you notice the chocolate inside, and this melts along with the biscuit, giving you a great taste and the feeling of wanting to eat more. (I haven't been writing for long, but have already eaten 4 biscuits!)

      To me they taste fairly similar to any other choc chip cookie, but I am keen to eat organic foods, so would happily eat these again, providing they are at a good price or on offer.

      At 53 calories per biscuit you can't go wrong with the odd treat, but as I've now had 5, that's 265 calories and I could easily eat more.

      Contains Milk, Soya, Gluten
      Produced on a line handling nuts and sesame seeds

      As these have only just been released in Feb 08, you may not see them around much, but when you do I'd love to know what you think.
