If there’s one thing Parle does not fall short of, it’s innovation. Adding to this, they’ve revamped their iconic squared choco chip biscuits into a tea-time snack that is nothing less than a dessert. In this Parle Hide & Seek Choco Chip creme sandwich biscuits review, we tried four variants- chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and orange.

Our Review Factors

What were we looking for when reviewing Hide & Seek Choco Chip Creme Sandwich biscuits?

Well-baked crisp biscuits with a smooth creme and a decent quantity of choco chips. In addition to this, we gauged the appearance, aroma, freshness, and flavor of the cremes. 

1. Flavor

Bold or subtle, how are the cremes flavored? Do the two elements result in overly sweet bites? Did the center filling taste fresh or was it synthetic-tasting? What about the fruit variants, did they taste natural?

Is the creme evenly spread or were there some empty bites?

2. Texture

We were looking for crisp biscuits and a smooth creme. Did we get this?

3. Other Parameters

Here we talk about the price, packaging, shelf life and other non-tasting parameters like aroma, appearance and more.

The layer of creme was quite thick.

Aroma & Appearance

None of the biscuits were broken or cracked, they were uniform in shape and size. The biscuits had a generous quantity of small-sized chocolate chips and a thick layer of vanilla creme. The aroma was a mix of vanilla and chocolate.

Taste & Texture

The crispness of the biscuits was spot on. Neither too hard nor crumbly, these had the perfect bite. The creme filling was smooth and devoid of inconsistencies. 

The sweetness was moderate as the chocolate flavor of the biscuits mixes with the vanilla sweetness. Talking about flavors, chocolate was more prominent than vanilla in each bite. That said, the flavors paired well with one another.

Flavor- 4/5
Texture- 4/5
  • The packaging was quite good.

Strawberry had a fairly decent taste.

Aroma & Appearance

This emitted a bold strawberry aroma but it didn’t feel synthetic. The creme was a light pink hue. The biscuits, like other variants, were loaded with choco chips. 

Taste & Texture

The crunch was as prominent as in other variants, no complaints here. However, in terms of flavor, the Strawberry variant was a let-down. It was primarily sweet and the strawberry flavor was mediocre while that of chocolate was subtle. In comparison with the two other variants, this was the sweetest. 

Flavor- 3/5

Aroma & Appearance

The biscuits were brown, and well-baked with a hearty quantity of choco chips. The creme was orange in color. The layer of cream wasn’t too thin, it was sufficient.

Texture- 4/5
  • The biscuits tasted fresh and crunchy.
