Fox’s - Payne’s Poppets Choc Chip Cookie (available at Morrisons)
I love Poppets and was very excited to hear about the launch of a new product in their range. It will sit alongside the rather lovely mint, raisin and toffee varieties, and introduce a new texture to their collection. So this new Poppet is filled with a chocolate chip cookie centre. The first thing I did when I got my mitts on them was to bite one in half and have a look at the appearance of the filling. I can confirm it does indeed have mini chocolate chips set in a biscuit, as per the picture, and it is really appealing.
Tucking in I discovered that this product is all about the crunchy texture. The biscuit has a mild flavour, and the chocolate is creamy and sweet, but it really is all about the packet making a nice munch. I am reliably informed that these will be more wildly available from June (e.g. at Tesco’s and the Co-Op), and I do recommended giving them a try. Many thanks to Fox’s for sending me the sample.
