I bought a pack of these cookies from Tesco last week it cost me £1.25 and I ate 1 last night.

These cookies (I really hate that word) or biscuits come in a red packet with a picture of a few fat currant cookies on it, no mistaking what’s inside. I opened up the red packet and in a plastic tray were 8 of these fat round cookies (sounds a bit like me :-)). The packet contains 299g, so that’s 50g per cookie.

There are 105 calories in each cookie. As well as currants and cinnamon they do contain wheat flour butter and skimmed milk.

There is not a very long best before date on these cookies mine was only a few weeks. I expect this is because these are a moist cake like cookie that goes stale quicker than a hard bite biscuit.
These cookies look quite attractive a brown colour with quite a lot of currants showing a cracked not smooth surface, almost a home baked look.

When eating the smell of food is important and these smell of fruit and a little spice smell a bit like a fruit cake might.

I take a bite yes they are soft the currants are soft too. The cookie stays together well, it is not crumbly. Yes more like a cake than a biscuit, I would not recommend dunking these.

A pleasant sweet but not oversweet currant fruity taste I can only just detect the cinnamon which is a shame prefer a stronger taste. I do like these and might buy them again if I am not baking.


These cookies are quite satisfying they are filling so not too many, one would be than enough.

If unlike us you do not eat the whole packet store them in an airtight container.

So would I recomend? Yes these are good maybe not the best but good.
