Once again, M&S appear to have gone overboard with NEW products.. They have literally got chocolate, biscuits and desserts coming out of their eyeballs with a fancy, Spirit of Summer range thrown in for good measure. I am not entirely sure of the logic behind the latter given it is barely even Spring but the brightly coloured packaging is quite enticing and worth a look if you're already feeling tropical!
As I am not feeling quite "August Bank Holiday" yet I'll be sticking with the regular line today with the NEW Milk Chocolate Cookie Dough Bites which were specifically requested for review - I do aim to please! The 140g, resealable foil baggy of a metallic orange hue, cost £2 with its chocolate contents being suitable for Vegetarians.. Big up the Veggies!
Milk chocolate and dark biscuit crumb with a soft white chocolate and biscuit filling (46%).
I was pleased to discover some fairly sizeable nuggets in the bag which I would say were comparable to large marbles.. Although they smelt much nicer than marbles of chocolatey, cookie goodness! Popping one in the mouth, a soft bite that was almost fudge like was the first thing to strike me which then transitioned into something more crunchy with a gritty sugariness just like you would find with actual cookie dough! Taste wise, they were very chocolatey and rich with what I think was a malty sort of flavour - Not quite full on Malteser but definitely a hint! I can't say the cookie dough aspect was anything other than subtle but surprisingly, I didn't feel anything was amiss.. There was already plenty going on with the other sweet elements! Magically, more-ish!
Oh M&S.. Are you intentional mess-ers or genuinely ridiculously inconsistent with quality of your products as these NEW Milk Chocolate Cookie Dough Bites are shockingly glorious! They hit the spot big time and feel like a real substantial snack thanks to the different textures and all round chunkiness. I will certainly be buying more and can see them being a total hit with the masses so get yourself a bag, pronto! It's a 4.5 out of 5 from me.
