Tesco Chocolate Chip Digestive Biscuits

Customer Reviews

"These are really nice digestives with a little chocolate added for extra enjoyment. Even dunkable!" Anon review on Tesco

"Really like these biscuits. I've never been a fan of chocolate chip cookies. The biscuit itself never appealed. Chocolate Chip in a digestive however is a great combo!" Anon review on Tesco

Sainsbury's Dark Chocolate Chip Digestive

Sainsbury's Dark Chocolate Chip Digestive

A great biscuit, full of smooth chocolate chips. The texture of the biscuit is spot on, but be careful dipping in a drink, the chocolate chips means that the biscuit breaks easier than others!

Serving Size 1 biscuit (12g)

 

Customer Reviews

"Amazing. These are really tasty. amazing value too." Dogship in a review on Sainsbury's

"Recently tried, instead of my usual choc digestive, and it’s been well received. Cheaper per g too!" Dadof3 in a review on Sainsbury's

 

McVitie's Dark Chocolate Digestive Thins Biscuits

McVitie's Dark Chocolate Digestive Thins Biscuits

With a dominant dark chocolate flavour (due to the thinner biscuit) these are great, quick chocolatey treats. The biscuit really is thin though – so if you’re in it for the biscuit not the chocolate, these aren’t for you.

Calorie and Nutritional Information

Serving Size 1 biscuit (6g)

 

Customer Reviews

"This biscuits are great for those who want a crunchy chocolate treat. Other reviews complain that they are not comparable to a normal digestive biscuit: indeed, they are not. The base is thin and the chocolate flavour is dominant. But if you like dark chocolate but you just feel like 'something more' these are great!" Sugarbug in a review on Sainsbury's

"I was very disappointed with these, as someone else said they were like cardboard and not a patch on the original. I thought it would be a treat with less calories. I would rather go for the originals but eat them less often." Chrissie in a review on Sainsbury's

These cookies are a little soft, and you can tell that they’re the healthy alternative – but they still have a a good taste, and avoid the artificial taste which often accompanies products with sweetener.

Customer Reviews

"These cookies are very soft, almost stale in texture and have a horrible after taste. I would not recommend. Very disappointing!" MrsP in a review on Sainsbury's
