What an egregious waste of plastic.

Your pithy ad hominem remark says more about you than it does the people to whom you're referring. It's easy to say someone should do something more so that you don't have to do anything at all, or at least, something less. But doing something is is doing something all the same and should be acknowledged as such.

In my case, I won't buy this particular box of biscuits because each biscuit is individually wrapped and I don't want create demand for more such like boxes to be made and so, cause more plastic to used in its creation. Whatever else I do or don't do with regards to reducing my environmentally-negative footprint on the planet goes is neither here nor there as far as my decision to not buy this particular box of biscuits. I do ride a bicycle most days. I don't eat meat. I recycle stuff. I buy clothes from charity shops. But that's neither here nor there - especially as it still wouldn't be enough in your eyes, I'm sure.

I invite you to do something environmentally friendly yourself, however small, and for which I will say well done and thank you. It's up to you, of course. But either way, please refrain from posting comments like the above. It doesn't have to be like this - you can choose to change at any time.
That being said....

This is 3p per biscuit

Tesco is 3.1p per biscuit. Less the 300 plastic wrappers. So not a massive saving tbf

I ordered these last time. They had at least 6 months date on them and arrived via parcel force. The delivery alone must have cost at least half the asking price. Bargain!!
Probably worth paying extra 75p for ones from amazon
What an egregious waste of plastic.

What else would they be wrapped in? You don't have to buy them, these are for catering.
300 biscuits for £9! Why not buy 10 packs of digestives for £5

And no advantage to be gained from buying from Amazon. Especially since you have to buy two packs.

Bought from these before. Flawless service and delivery

I nearly bought one of these 300-biscuit boxes before, but with each biscuit individually-wrapped in plastic, I just couldn't pull the trigger. Bang for buck, it's a great deal for people who enjoy a Biscoff biscuit or two with their coffee. But that bang for buck comes with an unconscionable plastic price. As much as I'd like to, I can't even bring myself to buy the packet that comes with biscuits wrapped in twos.

Noticed the packs in poundland have gone down from 3 individually wrapped biscuits to 2 individually wrapped..

Would you be okay when you go into a holiday let or hotel room finding an open and part eaten packet of digestives left for you?

As for the person suggesting buying from Amazon instead... I use Garraways for welcome packs for my holiday let and get next day delivery. I also suspect they pay normal rates of tax... unlike Amazon

But how many people on HotUKDeals are running a hotel and actually buying these for that purpose rather than just enjoying Lotus biscuits at home.

I agree about the waste of plastic, but more because everyone knows the minimum serving size for any biscuit is two
If it has to be Biscoff Lotus & the excessive packaging puts people off, the 250g packs aren't that badly priced. Definitely not a "deal" but not hideously expensive at about 8p a biscuit, assuming 13 in the pack. I think the Aldi ones are about 5p a biscuit & tasted nice to me. As for 2 being the minimum serving, I couldn't disagree more - 13 every time
thewolf8u10/02/2020 23:01

Because Lotus Biscoff
The 250g packets contain 32 biscuits each. I'm rubbish with numbers so I've no idea how that compares with all the other options, although a quick calculation (using a calculator) tells me 9 packets at £1 per packet = 288 biscuits for £9. That's not far off the bang for buck available on the 300-box offering.

What type of plastic are these wrapped in? You seem to be very knowledgeable. lol

Are they cellophane, which is biodegradable, or actual plastic which can be recycled?

I’m sick of hearing the stupid “plastic is bad” nonsense wheeled out by Daily Mail reading armchair scientists. Plastic is not bad. Plastic is literally a wonder product, and one of the best things humans have developed in the last century. The problem is plastic pollution, and the way some people dispose of the plastic, not the plastic itself.

I agree plastic is an extremely useful material(s) and that the problem with plastic has more to do with how we consume and dispose of the stuff - especially with regards to single-use plastic. The recyclability of single-use plastic is a confusing world indeed as it's not always clear whether it's inherently recyclable or even able to be recycled by local facilities where that's the case - apparently, a lot of plastic gets shipped overseas and simply becomes a problem elsewhere.

I've no idea what people who read the Daily Mail have to do with things but frankly, I'm not interested. I've decided what I'm doing about plastic pollution and I'm more than happy for you to do likewise.
These are great used on a biscuit base on a homemade cheesecake lol....Voted HOT....Thanks OP...x

You think wrong. If you'd read my posts in the thread you will have seen that I gladly acknowledged that the same deal could be had at Poundland and also at Herons - I even stated in the OP that ALDI sell a great alternative. And what's more, you'll see that when the two-biscuit option was mentioned I stated my position regarding the use of more packaging, just as I've done here.

My view on the extra packaging can be taken at face value. I have no axe to grind with anyone and I'm all for people saving money. If you can't cope with that then perhaps the internet is not for you.

(And fwiw, the difference in biscuits is 12. There are twelve biscuits more in the box than there is spending £9 on 9 packets. Twelve. Come on, man, get a grip of yourself!)

So why buy digestives if you like Lotus biscuits then?


The type of biscuits don't matter, you can get a wide arrange of biscuits wrapped in plastic, which like you said are ideal for establishments which have loads of guests. The part that isn't good is buying individually wrapped biscuits for home when you can buy packets with a smaller plastic footprint.
Love these
Poundland offer much better value with packets of 36 for £1
