McVities Ginger Nuts

“Not what they were !”

Written on: 19/06/2012

Here in France, we hadn't had a Ginger Nut for a few years. Recently, a large supermarket has started to stock McVities so we bought some. What I remember about them most is that you could waggle them in a cuppa and not worry about a cup full of biscuit or that you'd end up wearing soggy biscuit as it flopped between cup and mouth. They were the best dunkers around and almost too hard to eat without dunking. These Ginger Nuts were nowhere near as hard so they were, actually best eaten on their… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/05/2010

I think McVities should re-name their ginger nuts and call them lemon nuts, the only thing ginger about these bisciuts is the colour. I will not be buying these rubbish bisciuts again, and as for the "now even more gingery" slogan, if they get any more gingery they will have to call them rich tea!… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/05/2010 by Cheerful Cheerful (1 review written)

I've been a McVities Gunger Nut fan for years. It took time to adjust to their new flatter and less nobbly appearance several years ago, and might I add, less taste. Now they have a new,'more gingery' biscuit appearing on the shelves. It should read ' New LESS GINGERY taste'. Why keep trying to improve what was good already? these biscuits over the years have really gone down hill. My philosophy is 'If in 'ain't broken, don't fix it' Needless to say, McVities ginger nuts are no longer a… Read Full Review

Firstly Imakesense's review just about hits the proverbial nail square on the head. A fine,timeless biscuit expertly constructed , offering an initial alluring sweetness before imparting the sensous heat of its gingery adieu,which invites you to revisit time and time again...an absolute temptress of a biscuit… Read Full Review

I too was disappointed to find out that the chocolate version of the ginger nut was discontinued - it couldn't be bettered for dunking!!

Why has the texture changed?. I do not like the crunchy edge with the hard centre. They should be crunchy all the way through. The cheaper supermarket versions are now a better buy. Mcvities gingernuts are a disappointment… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/08/2005 by imakesense (4 reviews written)

The other two reviews on here are completely illogical, and I would question if the authors have eaten a real Ginger Nut biscuit. First, 'do not let them go soggy?'. Well, Ginger Nuts do not go 'soggy' like a Rich Tea... they can soak up liquid very nicely, and be consumed in that way. Secondly - you can ... how to put this... suck ginger nuts (ok there goes my credibility as a reviewer) and use your teeth to scrape away the biscuit as it gets soggy -quite disgusting to do in public, so save… Read Full Review

I don't think they're "horrible", but Ginger Nuts are certainly not my favourites. They are not bad for dunking in tea, which softens the taste a little too!!

Ginger Nuts are straight forward uncomplicated and uncompromising. A biscuit that takes no prisoners you either love them or leave them. Must not be allowed to go soggy. Don't fanny around using them as an ingredient to some tarty dessert just enjoy au natural… Read Full Review

Johnmckenna's Response to Tony Bevis's Review

Written on: 07/10/2004

Dear Tony Bevis,
<br>Come on you can't be serious. My wife and I have just had our nightly cuppa ruined by the absence of ginger flavour. I just had to get up and complain to somebody, and you're the guy. 'Almost completely, but not quite, totally unlike ginger nuts'. The snap has gone, along with the dunkability. They're now just another boring biscuit.
