Shirley Coconut Biscuits Review
A quick review today of these Shirley Coconut biscuits that I found in the World Foods section of my local Tesco. These biscuits are made by a company called West Indian Biscuit Company, otherwise known as WIBISCO. I love that! They are made in Barbados, which adds a new country to my Around the World challenge.
It's a small pack with about sixteen rectangular biscuits inside. They look really pretty with their appetising golden colouring and little image of a cottage on the front.
The biscuits are crunchy but also have a decent buttery edge to them. They're a bit like a rich tea biscuits, although not as dry - still perfect for dunking in a cup of tea! The flavour is wheaty and delicious with lots of sweet coconut coming through. It's not the strongest coconut flavour, it reminds me of the coconut taste in a Fox's Nice biscuit. In fact these are very similar to a Nice biscuit but with a more buttery flavour and without the granulated sugar topping. Overall, these are quite basic biscuits, but they're very tasty and are great value too.
