The Tastiest Jam Biscuits Review | Britannia Vs Parle
We take jam biscuits by Britannia and Parle to the battleground for a face-off to find out which one is yummier!
Jam filled biscuits have been a source of smiles for thousands of children throughout the country. But let’s admit it, that joy isn’t restricted to kids alone! The gooey jam on top and the soft, sweet cream sandwiched between two crumbly cookies is probably equivalent to a day’s visit to the theme park. Indian markets have a long list of options when it comes to biscuit and cookie selections. This review is all about finding the best jam biscuits from the supermarket aisle. We chose two popular jam biscuit making companies – Parle and Britannia and compared them for their taste and texture. And after going through several packets of each of these, we can confidently say that Britannia Treat Jim Jam is the tastier Jam biscuit. The flavourful round drop of jam in the center is what makes it stand out.
Mishry Top Pick: Britannia Treat Jim Jam
Why is Britannia Treat Jim Jam our Top Pick?
The Jam – The jam in the biscuits is exactly like a strawberry jam. It is tart but sugary. The jam is very gooey and stretchy, and makes all the difference to the flavour.
The Cream – The vanilla cream in the centre is sweet and perfectly balanced.
The Cookies – The cookies hold well together and are quite crunchy. They do not break upon holding. There were fewer broken biscuits in this pack as compared to its competitor.
The flavor of the jam improves the overall taste and the experience of eating them. Overall, the flavors of the vanilla cream, strawberry jam and the cookie are paired harmoniously.
Britannia Treat Jim Jam are a little smaller in size in comparison to the competition. They come in a pink-purple packaging.
Why Did Parle Fab! Jam-in Not Win?
Parle Fab! Jam-in comes in bright purple packaging.
The Jam – Upon opening the pack, we could see that the jam had sort of melted and trickled to the sides of the biscuits. But that is not the really problem here. It is the flavor of the black currant jam that brings the experience down. The flavor of the blackcurrant jam is very diluted. There is just not enough flavor to turn the jam into the highlight of the cookie. The jam was not gooey, it was a bit dry. There are a lot of sugar crystals sprinkled on the jam, so your experience of eating it for the blackcurrant flavor is lost.
The Cream – The cream is vanilla flavored and is nicely balanced.
The Cookie – The cookie, unfortunately, is dry and brittle. Despite being packaged in a plastic tray, a lot of biscuits were broken.
Overall, barring the vanilla cream (which is the sweetest part), all other flavors are very weak.
