Review: New McVitie's Mini Digestives Creepy Shapes
It seems that Halloween is finally making it's presence known on the shelves of most supermarkets, offeing a brief respite before the Christmas products take over completely. Amongst the new Halloween snacks are these McVitie's Mini Digestives Creepy Shapes, which are spookily similar to the Cadbury Mini Animals Halloweenies that I reviewed earlier in the week.
There are six individual bags in each multipack. The packaging is mainly black with an interesting Halloween "Did You Know" fact printed on the front.
Each Mini Digestive has a spooky creature or image pictured on one side, whilst the other side is covered in milk chocolate. The biscuits have the same flavour as the regular sized McVitie's milk chocolate digestives, which I find very moreish, with their slightly crumbly texture and wheaty flavour. The individual biscuits are larger in size than the Cadbury Mini Animals Halloweenies, and feel more substantial to eat. Even though I preferred the brighter Halloween theme of the Cadbury Halloweenies, I also enjoyed the look and flavour, of the McVities Mini Digestives Creepy Shapes. It's quite hard to choose between them, but I think there is enough room in my cupboards for both!
