I have never thought about reviewing products until I got a mail from Mcvities asking me to review their product. I think most of us like biscuits so do I.....And so when they said the biscuits are healthy as most of them are with whole wheat flour I readily accepted the offer.
I sent the address and totally forgot about it and thats when 2 days back I received a pack of 8 biscuits in different varieties. All their biscuits claim to be Zero cholestrol and no transfat.....How nice is that?!
The brand positioning for the same being ‘Change your habit to a healthy habit’ they have come up with a quirky way of getting the message across to all the health conscious people out there. The concept is to show a spoof on a popular Bollywood character and convey how he’s changing his habit to a healthy habit. This animated spoof features Aamir Khan from Ghajini in a tongue in cheek manner, getting the message across in a hilarious manner :McVitie's Gajhinee Spoof
The first one I tasted was the digestive biscuits and it was totally my kind with less sweetness a bit salty perfect to go with tea time. Additionally they are made with:
- Wholewheat flour
- No artificial flavours or colors
- High fibre
Verdict : Must try for all who love their biscuits to go with their tea
The next one I tasted....Ok I agree my daughter opened these :) was the butter cookies and they were just apt for the name just melts in the mouth, crispy and yummy.
They are also
- Rich in calcium
- Melts in the mouth and
- No transfats again
Verdict : As the wrapper tag says its Simply Butterlicious!!
This is my most favourite biscuit of all oatmeal honey cookies and they call it as hobnobs with the goodness of natural honey, oats and wholewheat...they are healthy and yummy!
Mcvities introduced the wonderful recipe of honobs in 1984. Since then it has perfected the art of baking a delightful oats biscuits complete in its goodness of natural ingredients
So the main ingredients included are :
- Oats for a healthy heart
- Wholewheat for a strong and fit body
- Honey for overall health
Verdict : I can have it anytime of the day, super delicious and healthy biscuits. Oats is not finely powdered, you can even feel the crunch in every bite - that the best part of it. I relished eating each one of them :)The last biscuit variety I tried was the cream biscuits (as I am not more interested in cream biscuits much but my daughter gave me the feedback even before I tasted them) and these biscuits seemed to have a burst of orange flavour in them. These biscuits are:
- Vitamin C enriched
- Tangy orange flavour
Verdict : A must try for all cream biscuits lovers!
Overall McVities biscuits have been enjoyed the world over since 1850. Baked to perfection, these biscuits are made with the finest and wholesome ingredients.
