Advantages Good taste and a healthier option than I thought.
Disadvantages Rather messy if they crumble.
What is it about this time of year – post-Christmas, cold, dark days etc etc? I seem to have been going through a nostalgic phase recently. Fortunately – or not, from the diet angle – it has mainly surfaced in relation to food products. Honestly, it could have been a lot more expensive otherwise!My latest fad – I think craving is a bit too strong, and I always associate it with pregnancy – was ‘for one of those biscuits we used to be able to get, you know, a bit like Cheddars but the shape was more rectangular & there was a kind of cheesy filling between the two biscuits, sandwiching them together!’ [This is me, reminiscing with my other half] He remembered them, too, but we couldn’t find them locally. Then one day we did our shopping in our nearest city. I’d forgotten all about them, but he, bless him, suddenly said ‘aren’t those the cheese things you were looking for?’ For a minute I couldn’t understand why there would be cheese in that part of the store, but there they were, an orangey pack of TUC biscuits, looking pretty much as I recalled. I was quite restrained, I only bought the one packet, knowing deep in my heart that they probably weren’t very good for me, and I really should start that diet as soon as the weather warms up! Excuses, excuses! It was in Morrisons and I paid £1.31.
~~ Presentation ~~
These biscuits are actually made by Jacobs in Hungary. I’ll resist a silly joke. The packaging promotes them as ‘Two savoury TUC biscuits sandwiched with a delicious cheese filling.’ The pack weighs 150g and for that you get more than 12 pairs of biscuits, I estimate. I can only estimate because this is a second pack and my son has eaten half of them while I’ve been away! They’re hard to miss if you know what you’re looking for, as they have ‘TUC’ in white letters on a blue background, on the front of the orange packet. There’s also a picture of a stack of sandwiched biscuits. You get all the usual information about who to contact if you’re dissatisfied. The nutritional information is on one side.
~~ Nutrition ~~
The nutritional information states that the calorie count is 72kcal per biscuit – I take it that means per double biscuit, although you could split each pair, but I’m not 100% sure. The fat levels are 4.3g each, of which 2.1g is saturated, and the sodium level is 0.1g So maybe these biscuits aren’t quite as unhealthy to eat as I first thought, if you can control yourself [!] although I didn’t see these amounts expressed as percentage of a recommended daily diet, which would have been useful.
