McVitie's Is Launching Gingerbread And Christmas Pudding Digestives Next Month

McVitie's Is Launching Gingerbread And Christmas Pudding Digestives Next Month

McVitie's has two new festive flavours of its classic Digestive biscuit set to hit shelves next month, which sound absolutely perfect for a night in front of the fire this Christmas.

The two new 'seasonal editions' of the beloved milk chocolate biscuit are Gingerbread and Christmas Pudding, with McVitie's confirming to LADbible that they will be available from 22 September.

The new treats will cost £1.50 a pack from retailers including Asda, Morrisons, Nisa, Co Op, Spar and Amazon.

"The Christmas Pudding & Gingerbread Digestives bring a new festive twist to the ever popular McVitie's Milk Chocolate Digestive," McVitie's said.

"Adding a sprinkling of Christmas cheer to the nation's favourite, these festive Chocolate Digestives are perfect for dunking in your tea or leaving out for Rudolph and his friends."

A photo of the biscuits was posted on the Snack News and Reviews Facebook page, which is run by Instagram food news feed Kev's Snack Reviews.

"Chrimbo Digestives coming soon," the caption said.

While some people moaned about how it was 'too soon', given that 'the kids aren't even back at school yet', many others were hyped as hell for the new biscuits.

"I want to try these," one person commented.

"OMG can't wait," another said.

Posts on the Kev's Snack Reviews Instagram feed gave both a thumbs up, with a summary of the first flavour reading: "After hearing people saying these weren't too great I didn't have high expectations, and I can see why people are disappointed but I rather liked them!

"The caramel is hazelnut flavoured and while it's not super strong it's pleasant and gives the biscuits a nice hazelnut flavour.

"They're perfect dunked in a cuppa - as all McVitie's biscuits should be!"

Luxurious Blood Orange was also a hit, with a review saying: "I thought I'd try the Blood Orange next. I love chocolate orange combos but was worried this might not be as nice as blood orange can sometimes taste a little bitter.

"Thankfully, that's not the case and the orange caramel has a nice pleasant orange tang that isn't too strong, but still reminds you it's orange!

"The difference between these and the regular caramel digestives is subtle but noticeable. I do wish the chocolate topping was orange flavoured too, though - that would be the icing on the...er... biscuit!"
