McVitie’s has released a new line of chocolate digestives for us all to gorge on – specifically, Marmalade on Toast, Cherry Bakewell and Strawberries & Cream flavours.
The variety can be found at Morrisons for £1.50 – the supermarket chain has confirmed that they are indeed stocking all three flavours however, only Strawberries & Cream are available on site.
Although Morrisons confirmed the exciting news, they also explained that the biscuits are not exclusive to them so it’s worth trying other shops as well because you could find them elsewhere.
The new digestives were spotted (and bought, obviously) by shopper Iain Torley who managed to bag himself each flavour before the picture was picked up by the New Foods UK Instagram page.
New Foods UK posted the pic along with the caption: “New @mcvitiesofficial Digestive Biscuits! Strawberries and cream, cherry bakewell and marmalade on toast! Wow! What a selection of biscuits! Can’t wait to try them all!”
In response to the post, one person wrote: “Oooooh! I wish the strawberry and cream had white chocolate though,” but a more immediately enthusiastic person added: “Whoa, that’s a serious line up of flavours.”
A third person wrote: “You couldn’t ask for more than a cherry bakewell flavoured biscuit!” Couldn’t agree more, tbh.
A spokesperson for McVitie’s told LADbible the company would soon be sharing more information about the products. So that’s good, isn’t it?
It would seem that McVitie’s is just the gift that keeps on giving at the moment. Just yesterday we discovered that the company had released pineapple flavoured Jaffa Cakes and they’re on sale for just £1 a box, with each packet containing 10 tropical-tinged treats for you to try.
They’re exactly the same as normal Jaffa Cakes, but they don’t actually contain any Jaffa flavouring… Wait, does that mean they should be called Pineapple Cakes? Doesn’t really have the same ring to it.
Anyway, let’s not get into that, either. The road only leads to a long-standing dispute about whether they’re cakes, biscuits or something else entirely.
Each of the Pineapple Jaffa Cakes contains only 46 calories. Obviously, the cake bars will be slightly more, but that’s to be expected.
As far as availability goes, it seems they’ve only been spotted in Morrisons supermarkets. They’re also available online if you haven’t got the time to get down to a store in person.
If you’re looking to try out the new cake bars, you’ve got a bit more scope for that. You can also pick a packet of five of those up at Tesco for a special price. They’re marked down from £1.45 to just 65p.
If you’re reading this and feeling confused, don’t worry. The normal Jaffa Cakes – the original and best – are going nowhere. Phew.
