Christmas Pudding McVitie’s Digestives (Asda) By @SpectreUK

Christmas Pudding McVitie’s Digestives

I recently wrote about McVitie's VIB Classic Caramel Bliss biscuits and rather enjoyed them. Cinabar recently wrote about their Gingerbread flavoured biscuits, and enjoyed them so much she refused to share them. She has since bought me a packet on a two for one deal, and then hidden her packet away from me. Not all that Christmassy of her is it? They must be good. Anyway, these Christmas Pudding McVitie's Digestives are milk chocolate coated digestives with Christmas pudding flavouring. I've been keeping them back to write about them closer to Christmas for obvious reasons. So what do they taste like?

Christmas Pudding McVitie’s Digestives

 On opening the packet of these Christmas Pudding McVitie's Digestives they look pretty much just like any other chocolate biscuit. There is a slight fruitiness in the chocolate digestive aroma on pealing back the wrapper. There is the usual digestive biscuit crunchiness on first bite, and then the smooth and creamy milk chocolate coating mixes in with the taste. There is then a fruitiness and a warming touch of cinnamon spice in the flavour. I'm not sure if these Christmas Pudding McVitie's Digestives taste of a Christmas Pudding per se, but I certainly received a good dose of fruitiness, such as fruit cake flavours and a touch of cinnamon spice at the end of every crunchy chocolate biscuit.

These Christmas Pudding McVitie's Digestives are very moreish indeed and definitely taste of Christmas. They are very flavoursome biscuits and I'd certainly have them again. I ate the packet over three nights and didn't share one of them with anyone! Ha…! The first night I had a few biscuits with a mug of tea. The second night I had some more biscuits dipping them in creamy vanilla ice cream, which was pretty much food of the Gods. The next night I had them with a pint of Titanic Plum Porter. Mmm… now that's Christmas!
