Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McVitie's White Chocolate Digestives Confirmed sighting: McVitie's White Chocolate Digestives
Posted: 13:06 Mon 24-Oct-2005. Price: 1.24. Location: London. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Lee Maguire" reports: By way of a review: I tasted these, visited http://www.whitechocdigs.com/ and voted "NO".

...To be fair, I didn't think these were that bad (and only 1.05 per - suspiciously heavy - box in my local North London Waitrose), largely resembling an ordinary digestive that's been smeared with lard (but in a good way!). And, in other biscuit bonanzas: I wasn't too bothered about McVitie's Special Edition Orange Chocolate Boasters (1.11 for usual Boasters-sized pack, also from Waitrose), especially compared to Cadbury Cookies Double Choc Chunk's cocoa overload (99p for pack of 6, Sainsbury's) - while "Doug" risks sounding a bit like someone from (the 1978 version of) "Invasion Of The Body Snatchers" as he confides: My wife bought a Double Decker for me at the weekend from Tesco in Berkhampstead and I was amazed, as it was nearly twice the size of the standard version I'm used to seeing. It had no special markings (eg "Special Edition" or "King Size") and was in the normal colour scheme. I was utterly confused, as I thought I'd either a) Shrunk, or b) Regressed about 20 years to when they were "as big as a bus"! Has anyone else witnessed this phenomenon, or have a logical explanation for this giant amongst chocky bars?

Comment: What were they thinking? I tried these today and was not impressed. If they were made with good quality white chocolate then they may be okay, but the actual chocolate tasted more like a normal chocolate digestive that had gone stale. Stick to Jafffa Cake varieties!

Comment: They're OK. Far too stingy on the white choccy, though. You can see the biscuit through it, FFS.

Comment: Well that's cos it's white, they probably use the same amount as they do milk chocolate but as milk choc is brown, it looks like there's more.

Comment: No I definateley think there is less chocolate on them than stadard chocolate digetives. They are ripping people off by claiming that they have reinvented the wheel, when all they have done is buckle it.

Comment: I am the Mcvities master, you wanna know a great 'Mouth Orgasm' technique? Grab a fox's classic, bite a small bit of one corner, then a bit from the corner Diagonally opposite, Suck very hot coffee/tea through it (like a straw) and when you feel the tea/coffee touch your lips, quickly put the whole biscuit in your mouth. ALSO, try getting White, Milk, Mint and orange digestived, making a Mega sandwich with each flavour, dunk them in a nice hot bru and Munch, you know it makes sense ;)
