Fruit & Nut

Four Stars
Fruit & Nut

The Fruit & Nut are a chocolate covered biscuit with raisins and almonds imbedded in the chocolate. There is also a crunchy chocolate flavoured biscuit in the centre that makes up the majority of the biscuits mass. They are very sweet biscuits, and the inclusion of the sugary raisins is a major contributing factor (along with the huge amount of chocolate covering each of the biscuits).

The initial flavour of the biscuits is strange. An almost chemically flavour takes hold of your taste buds, but this quickly recedes, giving way to the almonds, raisins and chocolate in the biscuit. The biscuits flavour is pleasant, but the sugariness overwhelms any other flavours very quickly. This leads t the biscuits becoming tiresome to eat quickly and spoiled my enjoyment of the almond pieces imbedded in the chocolate.

Overall these are a good biscuit. As a ‘Select’ branded product they receive a fancier treatment in regards to packaging, but the price is still fair for what you are getting. If you want a biscuit with a little more flair and for a decent price, you should look into these next time you are at your local Woolworths.
