Honeycomb Crunch

Three Stars
Honeycomb Crunch
These biscuits are a heavy, sickly sweet and oddly crunchy biscuit. As the name suggests, they have small chunks of honeycomb flavoured chunks inside the biscuit. The biscuit itself is a fairly standard sized circular object with a fairly thick chocolate coating and lashings of honey flavoured stripes. The biscuits are extremely filling; I could only manage to eat a few before I felt sick of the flavour and the heaviness of the biscuit.

However the crunchy element of the biscuit is quite good; there was none of that slightly soft and stale feel to the honeycomb pieces which all gave a satisfying crunch when bitten into. But apart from these chunks there is little else that I liked about the biscuits. For my taste they were too much; too sweet, too fatty and fairly dull after the first few bites.

In my opinion these biscuits could be fantastic. With some tweaks to the recipe of the Honeycomb Crunches they could be fantastic, but at the present time they are too much (and this is coming from somebody with a sweet tooth). They are basically a generic branded biscuit disguised as something else.

As for the value proposition, the biscuits do actually hold up. They are fairly cheap for what you get and are good enough for the price point that they are sold at. But, even taking that into consideration, if you’re after a quality biscuit for not too much there are better products out there (such as White Wings Homestyle Creamies or Coles Raspberry Tartlets).
