No Junk Organic Cocoa Cookie Bites [Organix] (Sainsbury's)
This is another of those products that prides itself on its ingredients, the 'no junk' philosophy means that the product is even approved by the Soil Association Organic Standard.
They are packaged in small bags each containing six mini cookies. When I opened the packet the most noticeable aroma was that of orange and chocolate biscuits. Orange isn't mentioned prominently on the packaging, but I did notice that orange oil is in the ingredients so that would explain the smell.
The biscuits themselves are disappointing, and nothing special. Despite the fact that they contain currants, orange oil and grape juice they are not very sweet. Palm oil seems to be the butter replacement, but the biscuits are still quite dry and with firm texture that could almost meet the label of being stodgy. The biscuits have a nice concept behind them, but aren't quite tasty enough to make them a repurchase.
