Found 19th JanEdited by:"HantsShopper"
Great value box of biscuits 1300g for £2.50! Seems to be permanently low price.The reviews are mixed ranging from those who say they've received a box where the biscuits weren't broken, some people very pleased and say selection includes individually wrapped biscuits as well as the run of the mill ones on the box to people who complain of not getting enough variety. This seems to be a bit of a lottery but at £2.50 for 1300g still sounds good value to me.

Read that too fast and thought it was some weird Game of Thrones merch tie in......
Broken biscuits are best, all the calories fall out....thankyou I'm here all week.
I used to buy these many years ago, but like Thornton's chocolates, the manufacturers realised it was a way to sell cheap products under the guise of them being "broken" or "mis-shapen" so it sounds like you are getting a bargain. 30 years ago I was opening boxes to find most biscuits whole and some even laying there in a row. They always contained a lot of custard creams presumably because they are made from cheap ingredients and the heaviest biscuit, so bumping up the overall box weight.

This offer works out 60p for every 300g pack of biscuits which isn't bad, but not fantastic when they are the cheap and bland tasting biscuits ( think you get real jamie dodgers ? ). The manufacturer may well produce biscuits for well known supermarkets, but you might as well then buy own branded biscuits and choose the varieties you like. For example, large pack of custard creams in Morrisons about 40p, 500g packs of Asda own digestives around 55p recently. I do like a surprise and could pick a box up to see if I get any indivdually wrapped ones, but looking at the calories I'd consume ( and you never eat just one or two at a time ), I think I'll pass.

The chocolate version is usually very good too, has a good mix usually containing classics and rockys
Good bang for your buck... but couldn't hack it myself - dusty biscuits from the crumbs etc take away the clean mouth feel of a proper biscuit.

Boxes of broken biscuits always taste nicer for some reason. Heat.
Just the thing to give to guests to make them feel welcome

man ... you are overthinking biscuits way too much!
read the ingredients- cheap palm oil be supermarket brand so walk away
i dont like broken biscuits but if they are cheap enough, i can put up with them
I got the holy grail of a Viennese whirl in one the other week.
Tried a box of these recently, no broken biscuits inside the box just mainly full of penny saver rich tea, ginger nuts and other value range biscuits.

Yes, it does seem to be to be pot luck but some of the reviewers on the site have been happy with the selection they received. Thanks for the feedback.
I think broken buiscuits are the same as teabags being made from bits left on the floor. Theres not that many broken biscuits after production to make up the boxes so they fill with unbroken buiscuits as well.
Got a box before, was nothing but the cheapest plain brands inside. Not for me thanks,
These used to be really good years back but now they really seem to have cheap biscuits its a shame

May as well buy those 700g variety biscuits that Morrisons, Lidl and ASDA sell for £1
