McVities Mini Gingerbread Men
The year of 2017 has arrived, and I faithful readers, have returned. Life has been a little on the chaotic side the last couple of months and as a result this beloved blog of mine seems to have fallen a little by the wayside. But that is about to change—or I am at least determined to re-dedicate myself to this blog.
I could bore you all with the details of my life since September, but nothing particularly exciting has happened (well I did turn 21, start university, and quite unexpectedly grow another inch taller).
I shan’t prattle on with all the clichés of, ‘new year, new me’, or any other such rubbish either. There shall be no miraculous epiphany which conveniently comes about on January 1st every single year, despite what we have all become accustomed to, what with the inescapable presence of social media. Perhaps I should stay true to my word and finally get on to the review?
McVitie's Gingerbread Men
I've recently noticed that I have been getting quite bored of what I eat. Finding eating to be a chore again rather than an enjoyable experience. I knew that I had to do something to remedy this, and fast! McVitie's are generally a reliable brand, playing a vital role during my childhood. They provided the chocolate digestives to dip into my tea...
I decided to go with something sweet rather than savoury because as you will have noticed from my reviews, I have quite a sweet tooth! I spotted these little McVitie's Ginger Bread Men whilst doing my weekly shop and I was overjoyed to realise that they were in fact vegan. They stood out to me with their bright packaging and snazzy little design of gingerbread men doing various activities.
The Ginger Bread Men from the good old people at McVitie's, come in little individual packs. This way they are perfectly sized to satisfy your cravings. The serving size is rather good, you get quite a few of these cute little Gingerbread Men in the bag, I was certainly impressed! The flavour is very good, sweet with enough ginger to add spice without being overwhelming. The biscuits were crunchy, as one would expect from McVitie's, so I certainly can't complain. They are incredibly moreish though, I couldn't help myself from reaching for another little man before I had even chomped through the first one! It is definitely a good thing then that McVitie's had the foresight to pre-portion these, or there would be a serious risk of me eating the entire pack in one go otherwise!
