McVite Digestives

For one hundred and twenty-nine years McVities’ digestives have been eaten. They are touted as good for digestion, and their chocolate version cannot be beaten. Tesco, Doves Farm and Mark and Spencer have all jumped into the biscuit game. Attempting to overthrow McVities as the number one, but their biscuits re not the same. A mere eighty-four calories, if you only have one or two or three it will be okay. But sometimes I am worn out and irritated and eat a package at the end of the day. I reach for chocolate ones, which are tastier than the American’s Graham Cracker. Or water biscuit to you, if you are English, and am not sure of their terms whacker. The digestive originated in Scotland, but do we want to give all the credit to them? After all we have perfected our eating of it with your pinkie held up as a little stem. With double cream or gammon, and possibly a bit of golden syrup too, We like our tasty bites in secret, or with choice guests, whose blood is blue. It says on McVites website that an employee Alexander Grant formulated secret recipe. They use whole wheat flour and baking soda, so an antacid, they pretend it can be. In actuality, it is a sweet meal biscuit, and it is good for eating with your Earl Gray. I am going to have to leave you now, for my salivating mouth is getting in my way.

Sounds like a gastronomical gift of a biscuit to me, Caren. In our neck of the woods biscuits and gravy, grits, and cornbread are very commonly eaten. When my daughter and son-in-law drove up to Long Island, they tried to order gravy over biscuits and the fast food worker looked at them quizzically. Lol!!!!

I love biscuits and gravy; it is one of my favorite things to get at McDonald's. Some will not put it on the menu but will sell it to you if you ask.

I've seen them in the stores but never bought them. I may give them a try. Have a great day my friend.

I have never tried them myself.
