Oh these crinkly little biscuits are good. Sorry; that's a cheese snack biscuit not just any old biscuit.
I found this packet at Luton Airport but as with so many things I am sure you can buy them in other places - just not in my local shopping street.
What we have is basically a crinkly version of the Mini Cheddar. And I think it really works well. Somehow they seem a little bit lighter than the usual style of Mini Cheddar, with a very good light crunch.
And a great taste. This seems like the archetypal cheese and onion flavour. Delicious. Great cheese and onion aroma, great cheese and onion taste. Not too oniony, not too sweet, not all smart and 5 star restauranty with caramelised onion or whatnot. No. Just extremely good cheese and onion. I think they qualify for a yum.
A nice little 50g bag too so no danger of eating far too many. And as you know, with any really good crispy snack that is always a danger. Ah, you say, but you can't share this bag with friends because you don't have enough to go round. No. Quite right. But they are far too good to share so I don't care.
Savoury satisfaction time after time says the packaging. You know what? They may be right.
These little biscuits were marketed as a McVitie's product. A Mini Cheddar. They've now dropped the Mini Cheddar and the maker is Jacob's. But as both McVitie's and Jacob's are brands owned by United Biscuits I'm not sure what difference this makes.
Still a very tasty product.
