If I'm going to eat breakfast it has to be quick and it has to be portable, so these new breakfast biscuits from McVitie's have a good chance of making their way into my workday routine.
McVitie's Breakfast Biscuits are made with wholegrain porridge oats, which are known to have slow release energy (the type that keeps us feeling fuller for longer), and they're fortified with vitamins D, B, Iron and fibre. It sounds to me as though they're the equivalent of eating a bowl of cereal or porridge without any of the hassle or faffling around. It takes me ten seconds to grab a pack of these on the way to work, and I then know I have a breakfast option in my bag ready for me whenever or wherever I get the chance to eat it. Can you eat a bowl of porridge while dashing down the road or cramming on the tube? I think not!
I tried these biscuits in the Red Berries flavour. They taste sort of like digestive biscuits, but more oaty. I thought they might actually taste of porridge, but in my opinion they don't, they taste like biscuits. I liked the red berry taste that would hit now and again with each mouthful and I find these went rather well dunked into a big cup of builders' tea.
The biscuits come in two other tasty sounding flavours - Oat & Honey and Apple and Sultana & Cinnamon. They're all the sort of flavours I would like, which is good, as I would get bored of eating the same flavour every day eventually!
You get 4 biscuits in each pack - so that's your portion size sorted - and you get 6 packs in each box, so they'll last the full working week.
If you fancy trying these out most of the supermarkets currently have them on offer with £1 off. The biscuits also have their very own facebook page - www.facebook.com/McVitiesBreakfast - which offers some amusing little words of wisdom on conquering our morning battles.
