McVitie’s Digestives Mini Caramel Crispies (Morrisons) By @SpectreUK
I do like biscuits, especially with a good cup of strong tea. Maybe it's a bit hot at the moment in our mini heatwave, but I still can't help enjoying plenty of tea and of course; bring on the biscuits! These new McVitie's Digestives Mini Caramel Crispies are made with digestive biscuit pieces, which is good start, as I do love digestives, and they're mixed with caramel and crisped cereals and then covered in milk chocolate. On opening the carton I couldn't help thinking that these were more like little cakes or brownies, and that I'd got a bit confused some where down the line. However, they are called Mini Caramel Crispies and the only mention of biscuits was "Digestives" in the title.
On taste these three centimetre by three centimetre by two centimetre (approximate; as I'm a Blogger not a draftsman) blocks of milk chocolate covered biscuit cereal blocks tasted great. They certainly had a crisp texture inside as I bit into them. I could see in their centre the pieces of digestives and crisped cereals stuck together by caramel (see photograph above).
These Mini Caramel Crispies are very moreish and I had to take the plastic bucket away before I ate the lot. First of course comes the milk chocolate flavour as I bit through followed by sweet caramel, crispy cereals and then digestives moving into the aftertaste racing along side the sweet caramel and overtaking the cereals. Very nice indeed, try not to share with friends and try not to eat in one sitting, unless you've been to the gym or fancy a jog around the block, which I hadn't and definitely didn't!
