For some reason, I’ve always associated the term ‘digestives’ with the words ‘healthy’ and ‘gross’. This has led to me shelving any noms with the word digestives on them to that short untouched list called “Food Mel Does Not Eat”. That was before I hastily picked up a package of McVitie’s Digestive Dark Chocolate while grocery shopping for work snacks a couple of weeks ago.
Apprehensions were had before the first bite. Said apprehensions disappeared into oblivion shortly after the first bite. Mildly sweet, buttery, crumbly- digestive biscuits are excellent picker-uppers in the middle of the workday. I went through the first package quite quickly and my greedy taste buds couldn’t wait to get more. It doesn’t hurt that they’re made with wheat flour and wholemeal, and is believed to help aid digestion, hence the name. Despite the supposed health benefits, they are actually ‘fun cookies’ more than ‘boring old biscuits’, just a bit more conscious.
I got a second box a week later, in Chocolate Caramel flavor this time and my
pannies dropped tastebuds were tickled. They’re even better than the dark chocolate ones. The McVitie’s Digestives Chocolate Caramel has a thin layer of mildly sweet caramel sandwiched between the buttery biscuit and the chocolate coating. Yum!
It’s sweeter by just a smidgen than the other flavors but the caramel adds a little oomph to the flavor combo and is super worth the extra sugar and calories. I have never been as infatuated with biscuits before. I want to get my hands on all the flavors, darnit.
