Summary

McVities Dark Cookie Cream biscuits have a delicious vanilla filling and a dominant coconut flavor. People who love coconut flavored cream biscuits would relish them. But if a chocolate and vanilla cream biscuit is what you’re looking for, these might not be for you.

The most loved sweet treat across the globe has to be a sandwiched cream biscuit. Creamy and moist filling between two crunchy layers of biscuits surely feels like heaven. These are super addictive and hard to stop at a single one.

McVities offers a range of different kinds of biscuits and cookies. In 2021, we reviewed McVities Wholewheat 5 Grain Cracker and McVities Ginger cookies and loved the flavors and crunchy texture. We are here again with another McVities review. Our detailed McVities Dark Cookie Cream Biscuits Review explores different parameters like taste, texture, price and packaging.

3. Taste

We tasted the McVities Dark Cookie Cream biscuits in three parts to gain a better idea about the overall taste of these biscuits: 

First Stage :

When we took a bite of the biscuit alone, it had a mix of both chocolate and coconut flavor.  They did not taste overly sweet and the chocolate flavor was mild. 

Second Stage :

After tasting the biscuit alone, we now tasted the cream inside these biscuits. The cream, when had as it is, tastes very sweet. It has a delicious vanilla flavor. 

Third Stage :

The collective bite! As we took a bite, the flavor of coconut instantly enveloped our palate. Coconut flavor isn’t loved by many, so that might be an issue for some. 

Due to the dominating flavor of coconut, the chocolate flavor is not that prominent. The overall sweetness is also low. 

4. Appearance

These are sandwich biscuits having a moist vanilla cream in between. The cream is placed between two dark colored biscuits. The center of these biscuits have the words McVities inscribed on it. Along the edges, these biscuits have a beautiful border. 

5. Aroma

On opening the pack, there was a dominant aroma of vanilla and coconut.
