Everyone looked a little excited when I unwrapped a selection of Fox’s biscuits! These new flavours are all inspired by the USA and their love of sweet things. I am a sucker for anything new, I cannot go grocery shopping without being drawn to them, so testing the limited edition biscuits was right up my street.
It was decided as it was a cold October afternoon we would play board games and test biscuits with cups of piping hot tea for the grownups and milk for the boys! I can think of worse ways to wile away our time together as a family.
The Fox’s Key Lime Pie Crunch Creams had a mixed reaction, hubbie and I found them too sweet, but eldest really enjoyed them! I am not overly keen on lime unless it’s in a margarita, so I was not overly enthusiastic about this packet even before taking the first bite anyway! But the Fox’s Mississippi Mud Pie caught my eye straight away…
Anything very chocolaty is definitely my sort of biscuit lately! These were quite moreish and I admit I ate more than I should in one sitting; I was encouraging the boys to try the other varieties so I could hog more for myself! But as it happens they were more excited about the Fox’s Blueberry Muffin Party Rings, the pair of them were begging for me to let them have a midnight feast that evening with the remaining biscuits!
Party Rings are fabulous for children’s parties; children seem to make a beeline for them! So I have a feeling the new addition will be well received across the country at the next round of birthdays. But you will have to be quick as these American style biscuits are available for a limited time only.
The Fox’s Cherry Cheesecake Jam’n Cream were quite nice too. I do enjoy this type of biscuit normally; you get the best of both worlds with jam and cream included. Hubbie is a huge cheesecake fan but these biscuits did not quite reach his exacting standards. I just had to eat another to confirm yes I do like them! I can get the hang of double-checking my opinions if it means I have an excuse to keep eating biscuits.
These were an interesting novelty and worth a nibble but Fox’s Chunkie Cookies still carry my favour.
