Our Product Reviews

These are the best I ve ever tasted sat here now munching away delicious, I’ve learnt the painful way , if you are lactose intolerant keep away unless you want horrid stomach pains , I’m now going to give the rest away as I’ve spent the last week in horrendous pain till my partner said could it be these and yes turns out when I ate them I was Ill, but they are so nice , I’ll have to try just a couple at a time in future instead of a whole box

A very accurate flavour and a nice crumbly texture

excellent*****

Pre dinner nibbles. None are ever left in the box.

Very tasty. I gave mum these biscuits as a gift. I gave her 6 boxes. There's a lot of packaging as they're to break so that's disappointing. However, they use sustainable palm oil.

I love these biscuits, dark chocolate and ginger, what a combination. Mouth watering, I love them. The best thing is the ginger taste hangs around in your mouth. The bad thing is it makes you want to go and eat more.

Very quick delivery, a day earlier than expected! Very moreish shortbread. Arrived well packaged and in perfect condition. Very good value for money.

The best tasting biscuits I've had for a long time, crispy and crumbly with an amazing ginger flavour, the best by a mile

They are firm enough to dunk, but not hard. Flavorsome and buttery, just as shortbread should be. They have that soft buttery taste that is associated with shortbreads while not compromising on quality. Great to have with a cup of tea. Recommended!

I adore really tasty cheese and so adore very tasty cheesy things, but most are pretty bland. Very disappointing - bought once and left for family to finish! have only found two that meet me desires and expectations! These are superb and I do NOT share them. But they are not on sale in my area. So I ordered a boxful!! Coming tomorrow, I hope! See also my review for Snyders Cheddar Cheese Pretzels!

I loved these cookies although they were a little stronger than I'd like although still very moorish! They are soft to the bite and packed full of cheese flavor. Highly recommended

So tasty and moorish, need to buy in bulk because they don't last long at all

I loved everything about these biscuit snacks , the taste was great making you want more .

The besy cheesy flavour andgood oats as well

Probably the nicest shortbread I've ever eaten. With my henge-like teeth I tend to weary of eating anything too hard so have real problems with the usual shortbread which is usually impenetrable without a dunking. These are crispy but also soft and moist and easy to eat either way. But be weary of the crumbs. These things *shred*.

Really nice cheesy nibble, at a very good price, a job to put down once started.

The chocolate coating has nice thick crunch, and the biscuit has a hard-gingerbread snap. The flavour of the warm ginger and the dark chocolate is well balanced and a great pairing. My preference actually lies a little more toward a soft-gingerbread texture and I found, quite by accident, that leaving the packet open for a couple of days softens the inner biscuit to my ideal texture! Delicious.

These on first look strike me as the type of biscuits you would find left for you if you went to a nice posh hotel/lodge. They look the part from the outset , and thats before you even taste them. We love ginger biscuits, and these do not dissapoint. The dark chocolate coating just goes really well with the ginger cruch inside. Amazing taste, great texture and top packaging. The ginger even has a spice hint to it , which just makes it all that nicer for me. I loved them, and i will certainly be buying some more when we run out.

Although my partner and I do not like ginger biscuits we have to say that these do taste great if you like them in general, the flavour is spot on, the ginger is not too strong but for us sadly it is as we are not used to that flavour combination (sweet chocolate with spicy ginger). The dark chocolate tastes amazing, similar to dark chocolate McVitties. The biscuit is crunchy indeed, but in my opinion, it is a tad too hard, and especially so if it is not eaten within few days. Since we didn't like them my partner took these biscuits to work and her colleagues agreed that these were the best ginger biscuits they tried and that they loved them, so I am just relaying the information. Overall, I am not going to let my taste buds affect the score as it is just my personal preference and not the fair product rating. Since a lot of people I know agreed that these were by far the best ginger cookies they tried I am going to give it five stars, and even though I don't like the taste profile, I can still taste the quality of ingredients and that is what is important.

I think these are totally delicious, lots of firey ginger heat from the real ginger and smothered in high quality dark chocolate. Unfortunately we tend to finish the whole pack once opened because they are so good. Also dunk well in tea (surprisingly). A firm favourite and also makes a nice gift. Highly recommend.

I love ginger biscuits, I love dark chocolate, these are 2 of my favourite things put together and are amazing. You get a whopping 12 boxes of these which is incredible, sadly I got them at the completely wrong time (heatwave) and most of them melted since I only had enough space in my fridge for a couple boxes. Excellent value and quality, highly recommend!

Excellent shortbread; crumbly, very tasty, and impossible to eat without wanting more!

Delicious ginger biscuits with slight spicy kick to it and covered with lovely dark chocolate. I love taste of those biscuits, texture is more crunchy inside rather than chewy. They feel much lighter and they are not that sweet as well which i prefer comparing to other supermarket biscuits. Because they are not that sweet you can actually eat much more of them, perfect for afternoon tea. Ginger flavour is delicious. They not too strong with flavour but you can feel it on back of the tong, then spicy flavour comes, love that taste. Whole box contains 12x 130g each boxes of biscuits. Long expire date allow you to store it for longer i eat it whenever you want it without worry that they will expiry soon. 1 thing i noticed is white layer on top of the biscuits which for me indicates that they been stored for some time before been shipped. It doesn't however affect taste whatsoever so not problem there. Love them.

There are TWELEVE boxes here and it's such a good value, works out about £1.67 per box. The ginger is a great tasting ginger. It's not a namby pamby ginger, meaning it's hardly got any taste. This has taste in spades. This taste like the ones I make, when the recipe says half a teaspoon, I add two tablespoons lol. So nice spicy and strong. I'm a bit 'off' with dark chocolate at the min, but this is a decent chocolate, not the cheap oily sort. There's eight biscuits per box, so hubsters eyes lit up and spun around lol. Good job they have a good BBD on them, sometime next year as it may take a while to eat them all...........Or not the way hubster and daughter are eyeing them up! Highly recommend.

I like Shortbread and have it now and then as a treat. AND I always like to have some biscuits in the Cupboard in case people come round for a cup of tea. This BUMPER pack of 16 boxes is just under £20 and is great value. The Shortbread are sweet and have enough of a crunch to them to make them water in your mouth. Delicious!

If anyone tells you they don't like ginger biscuits given them one of these. The bitter dark chocolate perfectly compliments the spice, and as a result you find yourself grabbing for more. My mum came to stay and pretty sure a couple of packs vanished with her! Nice crunch, hold up well in tea and are just about the perfect biscuit. Highly recommended.

I live with two cheese consumers, I'm not too fixated but happy to try these. These nibbles, although look like biscuits, are cheese-bites for want of a better term. Produced in Scotland and made from Scottish cheddar. The packaging is clear, adorned with the company logo and containing all the information you need to know. Cardboard box, plastic tray with a plastic film. The bites themselves are very cheesy, too much for me. However, the two cheese eaters of the family find these really nice and more-ish. A box disappeared before my eyes while writing this review. If you like cheese or know someone who likes cheese then this would make an excellent buy.

These are INTENSELY cheesy. This is a very memorable savoury snack. The flavour is intense - it hits you HARD. These are definitely worth a punt if you've never tried them before.

These shortbread fingers were loved by all how ate them, family and friends, myself, and I already have made repeat purchases from the supplier. The boxes and trays will keep the biscuits fresh prior to opening or storing them until completely consumed. The biscuits themselves were loved by all for their taste, texture and freshness of the product. They all commented that they seemed closer in taste to home baked than mass produced. My brother thought they were particularly well matched with swigs of strong black coffee while my sister said that it was difficult to restrict herself to just one or two biscuits at a time with her coffee. Great product, would have no hesitation recommending these to others, whether you plan on eating them yourself or keeping them in the home for occasions when you are receiving visitors or entertaining. Great for Christmas and all occasions I can think of as "shortbread" occasions too.

As with the shortbread, the biscuits from this company are just amazing. You receive 12 (12!) boxes of glorious, crumbly ginger biscuits absolutely drenched in dark chocolate. So, I'm fairly strictly keto, and there's enough dark chocolate on here to break pieces off and nibble independent from the biscuit itself, which is incredible. The biscuit itself, though, is just delightful. It's sweet without being sickly, and it has that glorious ginger heat that warms you up on the inside. I so want eat these at Christmas around an open fire (which is fine because they have a long best before date on them. Huzzah!) Each box contains 8 biscuits which doesn't sound like a lot, but they're really goodly sized, and they're rich, so you're not going to want more than one, maybe two at a time. At the time of writing, the pack of 12 is £19.99, which is incredible value when you consider how yummy they are. Am officially a huge fan of this company!

Shortbread is one of my favourite biscuits so I was really pleased to try these, they are so much better than the supermarket ones I usually buy, these taste delicious they are so light and crumbly not too sweet just perfect. These work out at £1.25 a box which considering how nice they taste I think that is quite good value, the best before is October which in my house will not be a problem, but maybe something to consider.

This is a pack of 12 boxes of 8 biscuits. The biscuits are crisp and crunchy with the lovely warmth of ginger. They are covered in a thick, dark chocolate. All I can say is these are clearly a high quality, luxury biscuit and taste absolutely delicious. Very more-ish. Highly recommended..

These are really nice cheese nibbles that go well with a glass of white wine or prosecco. They aren't the healthiest option, but are certainly a nice treat and are a bit of a fancier option for guests if you want to go beyond a bag of plain crisps. The texture is nice and crumbly, they melt in your mouth and are very easy to eat. They have a really nice strong cheddar cheese flavour, which makes them a really nice savoury snack to enjoy with your wine but they wouldn't work with coffee - at least in my opinion!! The boxes are nice and presentable - its the kind of thing you could take to someone as a little gift if you are invited round for a drink.

Imagine a biscuit with the taste of Mini Cheddars and the melt in the mouth texture of shortbread. That's these, and boy are they just delicious.

They are as described. Surprisingly gingery compared to most other ginger biscuits, with a crunchy crumbly texture and a very good plain chocolate coating. I have no complaints. I've just has a check on the price, rather expecting it to be my only grumble, but no, that's a fair price for what it is; a quality luxury biscuit.

These are great shortbread, the texture and taste is top quality. Getting 16 boxes with 7 pieces of shortbread in each helps keep them fresh and also puts the brakes on to some extent as to not consuming them too fast! Buying them in bulk is good value if you can resist the temptation to eat them too quickly!

This product reminds me of if a ginger nut biscuit was coated in chocolate. There’s a total of 8 biscuits in the box and the taste and smell is delicious. It has a nice sweetness to it with a very mild bitterness from the dark chocolate and obviously a with nice spicy ginger that makes you feel warm after. It’s perfect for those who have a sweet tooth as it has such a good balance of flavours. The product taste very high quality and it has a got sell by date, so it’s perfect to store in cupboard and treat yourself from time to time. I would highly recommend this well worth the money. Hope you found my review helpful.

A rich dark golden crunch that’s super tasty with just the right amount of ginger. Just enough to taste the heat. A fabulous biscuit without the chocolate. The dark chocolate isn’t too thick, some may like it thicker but I’m not a big fan of dark chocolate but I found it ok? My wife however suggested a better quantity chocolate might be better?
