There are days that start so badly that breakfast is barely over before I’m in need of a cup of tea and a biscuit. We had one of those days recently when Mushroom woke up at 4.30am and decided he was ready to start the day. He was whiny all morning but refused to take a nap and by the time I finally got him down I was already exhausted. I needed a sleep really, but had so much on I decided to settle for a cup of tea instead.
Luckily, the lovely people at Kelloggs had recently sent some of their new Special K Biscuit Moments biscuits for us to try. Mr B, being a bit of a biscuit monster, ripped open a box as soon as they arrived. ‘Ooh you get two,’ he said, promptly demolishing both in under a minute. I asked him what he thought. ‘Imagine you made a jam sandwich with rich tea biscuits. It’s like that.’
It wasn’t until later, when I finally had a minute to myself and sat down with my cup of tea and a packet of these biscuits that I found out he was wrong… I understand why he compared it to a rich tea biscuit but it’s actually much thinner and more crumbly than that… The crumbly, vanilla iced biscuit gives way to a sweet fruit filling that tastes a bit like like strawberry jam (Mr B was right about that bit). It is very sweet – possibly too sweet for some – but it you have a sweet tooth like I do, then it’s a perfect low calorie (just 98 for two biscuits!) sweet treat to indulge in now and then.
If you’re a regular follower of this blog, you won’t be surprised to hear that most biscuit moments at Mushroom Mansions are related to sleep – or lack of it… Usually, the less sleep Mushroom gets, the more sugar I need! What constitutes a ‘biscuit moment’ in your house?
