Fox’s Party Rings - Blueberry Muffin biscuits (Tesco) [By @Cinabar]

The new Fox’s range of biscuits is all American in flavour. The packets are adorned with the Stars and Stripes and the flavours are from across the ocean, the range is called “Vinnie’s Taste of America”. There are few new goodies out, but the first to catch my eye was the Party Rings. I haven’t had Party Rings since I was a child, but I did used to love them. Naturally when I opened up the packet they looked smaller than I remembered, but isn’t that always the way? I guess I grew!
Each one was a very pretty lilac in colour, but the most significant thing was the aroma. It practically screamed blueberry! There was nothing subtle in the smell, and it worried me the flavour might be overpowering.
The biscuits are a firm crunchy thin biscuit and the hard icing add to this. As I ate the first one I remembered that I used to like sucking the icing off as a child, and then eating the biscuit underneath. I didn’t do that this time, I went for a simple crunchy bite and just enjoyed the flavours. The berry smell was much milder as a taste, thankfully. Although it was still distinctly blueberry it seemed balanced and fruity and fresh. Yes it was a little stronger than other fruity biscuits but it was on the side of fun and playful. The biscuit underneath was creamy and sweet and thoroughly enjoyable, and provided a rather enjoyable sugar hit.
I can’t wait to try the Key Lime Pie biscuits next!
