McVitie’s Digestive Biscuits

In reading about chocolate digestive biscuits in some Betty Neels books I read, I looked them up on Amazon and bought them to try it.

The chocolate biscuits are divine and need to be locked out of my reach or else I’ll snarf the entire package. Since I liked them so much, I also looked up the regular digestive biscuits on Amazon and bought them to try them.

I must admit I’m not a huge fan of the name of this biscuit. “Digestive” reminds me of intestines and that super-creepy kidney/spit monster from the X-Files.

But I absolutely LOVE these biscuits! I think because they’re both a little salty and a little sweet, but not too much of either. I also really like the texture--it’s like a more cookie-ish graham cracker, but not as sweet as a graham cracker. I really like good texture in my cookies and so I like the fiber-ish feel of these biscuits.

I have been eating them with my afternoon and evening tea time. I feel very British. :)

Anyone else tried these before?


  1. I have never tried these, but might have to now! I also found that many Wal-Mart stores have them in-stock.

  2. Oh wow I didn't know that! I'll have to check out Wal-Mart!

  3. I LOVE these cookies, I'm Bermudian and they sell them in Bermuda (considered a British territory). I live in the US now and every time I visit Bermuda, I bring home boxes and boxes of them!

    1. I love these! My local stores don't always carry them, so now I just order them from Amazon. It's easier than going to the store several times to check if they have them. :)
