McVitie’s Breakfast Biscuits

DSC_2382

What do you do for breakfast? If you’re anything like me you’d much rather spend the precious morning hours in bed or faffing with your make up than bothering with breakfast. I always have breakfast at work in the week, so tend to keep something in my desk drawers to start the morning with. Sometimes it’s cereal, but more often than not, it’s biscuits! Yes, I know that’s naughty, but it’s so easy. 

This week I’ve been munching the brand new McVitie’s Breakfast Biscuits in Red Berries flavour. These are super yummy, oaty biscuits. They taste a bit like Rusks (which I like, so don’t look at me weird) and Hob Nobs, with tasty berry bits in for something a bit more interesting than your standard breakfast biscuit. You can also get these in Oat & Honey and Apple, Sultana & Cinnamon flavours.  

 

These little breakfast biscuits come sealed in packs of four so a perfect size to pop into your handbag when you’re on the go. These are baked with wholegrain porridge oats to provide a slow release energy source that we all know is so important when you’re busy. They are also fortified with important vitamins such as vitamin D and B and sources of iron and calcium too. So, with those little facts, let’s say these are healthy biscuits! For those who calorie count, they are 57 calories per biscuit, but that doesn’t mean anything to me, as I don’t look at things like that.

I love these biscuits and will be storing a box in my desk drawer from now on, perfect for a quick breakfast or a midday pick me up. If you want to give these breakfast biscuits a whirl for yourself, you can pick them up in Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’s now where they are on introductory special offer.  Check out their Facebook page www.facebook/mcvitiesbreakfast and follow @McVitBreakfast on Twitter to find out more direct from the biccy company themselves.

  1. I’m sure I’ve seen them on offer somewhere, or was it another brand? In any case, I was wondering if they were any good. I love oats, but I don’t like Hob Nobs. May give them a try.

    Thanks Jayne.

    1. They aren’t as chunky as Hob Nobs. They are pretty similar to the Belvita biscuits, but with a bit more of a texture.

  2. I’ve actually tried these because there was a lonely looking box on the reduced shelf due to the end being a bit battered. I found they were quite nice, I tried the berry ones too, and they at least got me eating soemthing in the morning, which is an improvement on most days. I swim every morning before work and then tend to get straight to work, so don’t usually have time and I don’t like to eat before swimming.

  3. This whole post has just put me off reading your blog, a sponsored post about biscuits? really? not exactly what we come here to read

    1. Hi Laura, Thanks for the comment. I’m sorry this bothered you. I genuinely liked this product which is why I accepted the sponsored post. Magazines do advertorial so don’t see why blogs shouldn’t should they choose. Running my blog costs money so making a little money from it means I can invest more into my site. Hope this doesn’t put you off reading the rest of my content. Please let me know if you have any questions about this issue. I’m happy to discuss.
