Rocky Road Mallows

Four Stars
Rocky Road Mallows
I was pleasantly surprised with the Rocky Road Mellows. Many of the other Woolworths biscuits that I have tried have been pretty average and I wasn’t expecting much from these large, chocolate covered blobs. But boy have Woolworths delivered! The biscuits are large, chocolate covered mounds of marshmallow with a small chocolate slice of biscuit at the base. The chocolate has chunks of tasty peanuts embedded inside of it giving it that classic Rocky Road flavour.

The chocolate and marshmallow used in the production of these biscuits seems to be of decent quality. The size of the biscuits also surprised me. Each of these biscuits is between the size of a tennis and a golf ball, making them quite a large snack. Looking at the pack I expected there to be many more than there actually was, and I was surprised when I opened it up and found only eight biscuits inside. However the size of them more than makes up for the low quantity and I feel that this is a decent trade-off.

The biscuits taste just like you’d hope – the nuttiness of the peanuts combines with the sweetness of both the chocolate coating, the biscuit inside and the sweet marshmallow that makes up the bulk of the biscuit. The only downside of these is the low amount of biscuits per pack, but again I feel that this is somewhat made up for by the quality and price. At only $1.99 these biscuits are fairly priced. Considering the product on the whole I would say that these are a definite good buy. If your’e at your local Woolworths and see these on the shelf I can recommend you pick them up to try. You’ll be impressed at the quality of the product as well as the price.
