Mr Kipling Toffee Terror Whirls (Morrisons) By @Cinabar
I’m not sure that toffee is something that causes terror, or even makes the spine tingle. Still, I can appreciate a limited edition Halloween product, even if the flavour tie in sounds a bit loose. I like toffee, so I’ll let it go. It does actually make a change from the lemon and (s)lime which seems to be popular again this year.
These biscuits are like Viennese Whirls but they have a cream and toffee filling inside. There are six in the pack, and they come dusted with icing sugar. The biscuits look visually like the regular whirls, except where the dollop of toffee sauce peeps through. I was sort of hoping for something a little bit more seasonal to be imprinted on the biscuits, but they the just have the regular swirl.
The biscuits do taste good though.Their soft texture is crumbly and pleasant, and the tones of toffee are sweet and satisfying. The flavour isn’t too strong and the buttery taste of the biscuit still shines through.
These are tasty biscuits, with a good toffee filling. The theming for them may be a little weak, but they are still a very enjoyable treat. Next year Mr Kipling how about Pumpkin Spice Whirls?
