The Score: 4 out of 5

When my roommate came home from Spring Break, she brought back with her from the UK this roll of caramel and chocolate covered digestive cookies for her boyfriend. Since he was at our place, I was able to partake in the goodies and they were mouthwatering and tasty. I think they eventually finished the roll in about two days. Unfortunately Valu-Mart doesn’t sell them and I haven’t come across them in any other store yet either.

But I did find that noname sells two varieties (that I saw) – plain and dark chocolate covered. I have a fond weakness for dark chocolate. The label says: IMPORTED FROM ENGLAND… I don’t know why but I don’t associate noname with importing high end goods…

The Look: Approximately 5.5cm in diameter with ’sweetmeal digestive cookie’ embossed on one side and about a millimeter of dark chocolate on the other. Looks like a typical digestive cookie.

The Smell: Cookish?

The Taste: Cruncy. Sweet, but not too sugary. I’m guessing that’s because it’s dark instead of milk chocolate. Enough chocolate to not make me want to wince at the sweetness. I definitely miss the caramel though. The balance is perfect. The chocolate melts a little in your mouth a little too. For a normal treat, the two cookies would be sufficient.

The Verdict: Well I only bought the package today and I’ve eaten about 1/3 of it already so it’s definitely a winner in my books. I would have given it a perfect score if it didn’t have so much fat per serving. With all those 100 calorie packs out there with 2-3g of fat and only a few cents more, I could see someone grabbing those instead. But I’ll be buying this again, especially when I want a chocolate cookie but am scared of devouring an entire pack of President’s Choice Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookies.
