      Disadvantages

      well worth it for the taste

      A 'Rocky' is a crunchy biscuit covered in milk chocolate made a company called Fox's. The chocolate on the bar is applied very thickly, mainly on the top, meaning you get the full taste as you bite into it.

      The actual biscuit in the centre of the bar has similar tastes to that of a Digestive biscuit, containing coconut and oatmeal.

      Rocky's can be bought from most supermarkets in packs of 6 or 8, with each bar being around 8.5cm long, about 3cm wide and about 1cm tall, and packed in its own wrapping. Each different flavour bar has its own rapping: chocolate (red), caramel (Yellow), orange (orange), and toffee crunch.

      I find these bars to taste best after being refrigerated, as the chocolate is much harder and therefore tastier; if the chocolate begins to melt, much of the bars taste will be lost, and you won't enjoy it as much.

      Each rocky bar contains 107kcal and 5.5g of fat.

      Although quite small, they are delicious; this is the reason why I will carry on buying them.

      Thanks for reading.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Bit different to the usual Rockys

        ***Background***

        Rocky biscuits are made by Fox's, a company who have been making biscuits for over 150 years and who have lots of experience in their field. From Classics to Crunch Creams, millions love their products. Although it merged with Elkes biscuits in 2003 their products have kept their brand name. They have 3 factories where their delicious range of biscuits are made, Batley in West Yorkshire, Kirkham near Blackpool and Uttoxeter with is in Staffordshire. They distribute their products from Wakefield in West Yorkshire and Uttoxeter.

        The advertising for this product is helped by Rocky Robin, who is the cheeky chappy who has gone from being a fun loving Geordie to a hip and cool figure for the kids of today.

        ***The Product***

        This orange version is brand new and is a must for anyone who enjoys orangey chocolate with a bit of chocolate flavoured biscuit to go with it. They come in 6 packs and have a bright, eye-catching orange wrapper with Rocky written in big purple letters across the front, so they are easy to spot in the supermarket.

        The biscuits come individually wrapped and are 9cm long, about 3cm wide and about 1cm tall, so they are not the biggest biscuits around. When you open one of these the orange scent hits you straight away and you can see that they are quite plain looking with only the occasional drizzled chocolate decoration on the top.

        ***The Taste Test***

        Ok so it doesn't really matter what a product like this looks like as long as it tastes good so here we go. I love this part of a food review. As I bite into the biscuit I find it is quite crunchy inside as with the texture of a lot of other Fox's biscuits. It doesn't crumble everywhere though and the thick chocolate around it seems to hold it together quite well.

        The orange flavouring is lovely - not too sweet but strong enough to be noticeable. I would say it's probably not a good idea to store these with other plain biscuits unless you want some of the flavouring to be transferred. The orange flavour is all in the milk chocolate and there are no creamy bits along the top, which disappointed me a little bit as I loved the orange filling in the Echo biscuits.

        ***My Thoughts***

        I tend not to eat to many biscuits as I'm trying hard to keep the pounds off but I do buy them for my bloke to take with him to work. He's lucky that he can eat anything and stay stick thin. With it being a new one though I did have to try this out for the good of the Dooyoo readers and I was a little bit disappointed with what I found. The taste was just starting to get interesting when it was finished.

        After only three bites, this biscuit was gone and I'm not usually one for stuffing loads in my mouth at once - now behave out there. Even though I enjoyed it immensely I felt a bit cheated because despite being told that size isn't everything, I feel that this doesn't apply to biscuits and I would have liked a bigger one - well wouldn't we all.

        As there are 120 calories and 6.4g of fat in one of these, I have to say that I could find better things to eat for that and that this chocolate biscuit didn't really do much except make me want to finish the whole packet, which is good for the company but not for my thighs. It didn't satisfy me in the least.

        ***Price and Availability***

        I'm not sure that you can buy these from every supermarket at the moment but they are available in Tesco for the price of 98p for 8. I feel that this is a little bit expensive given that I wanted to eat the lot in one go. They are also available in a 6 pack too from Morrisons for 92p, which is even more expensive although I got them on a Buy One Get One Free offer so it wasn't too bad.
