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.

  1. Now THIS is my fave kind of biscuit - buttery coconutty Mmmmm..... as much of the relentless sweet tooth I have, I do prefer a plain kind of biscuit (Nice, Malted Milks and the 'not so regular' shortbread are my favourites). More often than not they HAVE to be consumed - dunked in a cuppa1 These sound perfect for me!

    1. I'm with you (yet again!) on the simple biscuits! It's always better if they're dunkable :) I think you would really like these!

  2. I love these biscuits, they are so yummy. If you have an Asian grocery shop near u then look out for them there. I've seen them priced 3 packs for a pound which is a total bargain! That was in London tho.

    1. Thanks Gozi! That's a total bargain, I'll look out for some more at that price :)

  3. I love your blog! Fantastic idea. I just bought these biscuits myself from tesco too. I spend quite a bit of time in the world foods aisle!

    1. Thank you! I love your Around the World In 80 Bakes blog too - such a wonderful quest!
