Too pricey and the quality has been slipping over the last 5-8 years...
Don't get me wrong i absolutely adore jaffa cakes, i grew up on them as they were the top three biscuits mostly eaten at my house.
its just with todays supermarkets and the introduction of other versions of these original products the originals are just not holding up.
if you shop at asda you'll likely pay £1.27 for a tube of mcvities jaffa cakes, containing roughly 12 of them.
now if you're the type of shopper like... (read more)

I just found a hair in the orange centre of my jaffa cake. Definitely not one of mine as it is white and was stuck fast in the orange.
Disgusting. (read more)

I and members of my family have always enjoyed the great taste and quality in this product, however the standard in jaffa cakes let me down today!!!! this morning i found plastic coating to an electrical wire in my sons jaffa cake... i was disgusted, he was just about to put it in his mouth when i saw an alien red object within it and had to take it from him. it is about 6-7 millimetres long and is very hard. a child, even an adult would of easily choked on this if consumed. i will definitly...

My son had his first proper birthday party, and knowing that Jaffa Cakes were his favourites, I bought countless packets of them, only to find on the day that they were either completely crushed (not by me - Ocado delivered them), and in some packets they had no jelly centre, which was a huge disappointment to the little ones. I think this is an important point and issue that McVities need to take into consideration in the future, if this company is to be a success, as I shall never purchase... (read more)

They are a classic biccie.
Nibble Jaffa Cakes slowly, take your time. Savor each one because there are not many in a pack :(
However, Aldi do a passable alternative. You'd be hard pushed to tell the difference! (read more)

I would recommend McVities Jaffa Cakes to anyone, the new flavours are delicious too, although I don't think they are superior to the original Jaffa orange flavour, I can munch a whole pack of which ever flavour in one go. I wish I could go on the tour of the McVities Jaffa Cakes factory as I would scoff loads of their cakes. A nice brew with a box of Jaffa Cakes is spot on about 11:00 in the morning. Yum! If you've never tried McVities Jaffa Cakes, you've been missing a real treat, my friends. (read more)

Ahhh, Jaffa-cakes. Stuck in the no-man's land between a cake and a biscuit, these anarchists among the biscuit/cake world are delicious.
As stated before, You should not have more than 3 Jaffa cakes per minute, as this will cause immense illness.
The way you eat them should be obvious: you eat around the jam, then you bite of the chocolate on top of the jam, and finally the biscuit-ish thing. A tricky procedure, but one that if got to work will have a great reward.
Overall, these... (read more)
