After hearing lot’s of positive comments about these biscuits from people on Twitter I thought I best hunt these down and give them a try. They are a gluten free style Oreo biscuit which also happens to be dairy free. The only allergen listed was soya with a may contain warning for eggs. So bingo they were suitable for both my mum and I to share, although this was the theory anyway 😊. They come in a light blue packaging with a picture of the biscuits tumbling into milk. I personally found this a little off putting but that is me being a little silly. Now I don’t normally mention price as free from products are always pricier but I have to confess to being a little surprised by the £3.50 price tag for 8 biscuits. Anyway, on to the nutritional values. A 30g serving contains 142 calories, 5.4g of fat, 6.4g of sugar, and 0.1g of salt.
On opening the packet there is 4 separate compartments containing 2 biscuits. On initial appearance the biscuits looked similar to the traditional Oreo biscuit. This being two dark brown circular biscuits with a good quantity of white cream sandwiched between the two. On bitting into the biscuit it had a subtle crunch with a little crumbling noted. This was then followed by the smooth creamy centre. The texture of the biscuits itself was a little grainy but not dry or hard as can be the case with some gluten free biscuits. As for the taste, the biscuit element was a rich cocoa flavour, stronger than I expected, but this was balanced nicely by the light soft creamy centre.
I did find these biscuits a little addictive eating more than the two I had originally planned. They certainly went well with a nice cup of tea. Would I recommend them to anyone who follows either a gluten, wheat, dairy or lactose free diet, yes I would. So thank you Udi’s for producing a fab free from version of the Oreo biscuit.
