Macro Wholefoods Double Choc Biscuits

Sometimes you’re just too busy or too tired to bake your own biscuits. All you want to do is prepare a cup of tea and have a few biscuits. Baking? Not always!

Of course, now that I am stuck with gluten-free varieties of biscuits, I’m going to have to find one I like. Goodbye Butternut Snaps, most brands of Scotch Fingers, Tim Tams, and Kmart choc chip biscuits! Hello lack of variety.

I started with Freedom Foods’ Crunchy Coconut Biscuits. They were disappointing. A friend who recently started eating wheat-free posted how he was unhappy with Freedom Foods’ Chocolate Blitz cookies on Facebook, and I decided that I would have to try an alternate brand next time I was at the supermarket in search of biscuits.

So it occurred one night at my local Woolworths supermarket, and I came home with Macro Wholefoods’ Double Choc Biscuits. I think they’re meant to be a gluten-free version of the Tim Tam.

Gluten free but also dairy free and vegan. That was probably too accommodating to those not in the typical population and should have set off alarm bells.

They look a little like Tim Tams (although it's now been a while since I've had a glorious Tim Tam, so my judgement may be compromised by romantic ideals of the Tim Tam).

Does not taste like Tim Tam. Sickly sweet is how I would describe it in two words. Texture was good, but taste not so much.

Would I buy again? No
