|Whilst perusing the biscuit shelves of my local Tesco Metro this week, I decided to try a few varieties that hadn't graced my basket before.|
For the first, I should have consulted your Fig Roll head-to-head review, as the Jacobs Fig Rolls that I selected were definitely a bit of a let-down. A rather tastless pastry (which managed to be both dry and limp within each biscuit) combined with a very thin filling left me very underwhelmed. I'll be going to Sainsbury's for their own brand should I feel the need for more.
Better luck with my next choice: HobNob Chocolate Creams. These have all the expected crunchiness of a regular HobNob (possibly more so, as the biscuit has a smaller diameter) combined with a thinnish dark chocolate cream filling. Lots of nutty aroma and crunch, but it's just too small - three polite bites and it's gone. Another centimetre across and it would be perfect.
My third purchase was a bit of exotica: LU Encore Raspberry. Good dark chocolate over a soft base with a sweet filling that definitely tasted of rasperries. The soft base was not really to my liking (I prefer a bit of crunch) and, again, this biscuit is far too small - two man-size bites and that's it. However, one of Belgium's better exports.
|Nicey replies: Hi Adrian,
We've just added those LU raspberry jobs to our Biscuit of The Week.
As for the Jacobs Fig Roll they can often seem a bit heavy on the crust to fig ratio but when the mood takes me they can be just the ticket.
