The thin trend is growing too, and what once only applied to the bakery section has now extended to the biscuit aisle. Oreo thins have recently arrived on British shores but Mcvities and Tesco* have also jumped aboard the bandwagon too.
I did think of two bonuses to McVities new range though:
1. They're coated, meaning there's surely a greater chocolate:biscuit ratio (always a win).
2. Smaller/thinner = I can eat even more biscuits!
Also, they've made this cappuccino version which is the real reason* I bought them when I finally spotted a box in Tesco for a rather expensive £1.69.
*well that and admittedly I'm a gluttonous chocoholic.
"Delightfully delicate cappuccino flavoured digestives covered in milk chocolate."
Crikey, they really do mean thin don't they? How they've even managed to make a biscuit that's not much wider than a sheet of paper I don't know!
I was impressed that despite their narrowness McVities have managed to imprint their logo and thin on the back (just in case you forget it's not a regular digestive of course).
They're delicious but not as satisfying as full size digestives, and so I find myself longing for non-thin cappuccino flavoured milk chocolate digestives... or better yet, white chocolate digestives. McVities are you reading this?
