These biscuits are from a new range brought to us by McVities. They consist of a shell of biscuit with a soft crème filling, making them a sort of inside out biscuit!
I know they look a decent size in the photograph, but they were smaller than I expected. I can’t tell if I’m getting greedier the older I get or if biscuits are shrinking, but this isn’t the first time I’ve though a biscuit was on the small side.
I broke one of these biscuits in half, to take a peek at the filling and there were crumbs everywhere when it snapped. The biscuits are messy that’s for sure. Spectre felt they were small enough to eat in one bite, which alleviates this problem, but not everyone can eat that much biscuit at once! Although dainty, they still needed multiple bites from me!
The shell of the biscuit has a nice chocolaty buttery taste and a good baked flavour. The texture is very flaky and a little dry for me. The filling does help a little, it is a smooth and creamy soft paste, and again has a good rich chocolate taste. I liked the flavours, but the textures just weren’t balanced enough for me. There wasn’t enough moisture to counter the shell.
In conclusion the biscuits were nice enough, and had good flavour that would meet any chocolate craving, they just aren’t my favourite offering from McVities. If you fancy giving them a try, let me know what you think. As well as chocolate, they are also available in hazelnut varieties.
