“Once great biscuits, now ruined”

Written on: 17/04/2014 by Roche98 (1 review written)

I recently bought a packet of digestives after not eating them for a few years. They are not how I remember, thinner and taste so bland. What a disappointment! Will not be buying again! McVities should return to the old recipe!… Read Full Review

“Tastes like gasoline”

Written on: 02/12/2013

McVities digestive used to taste better than all the competition, but I bought a new packet at Walmart yesterday, and I had some tonight. At first I thought I was imagining the taste of what I think gasoline would taste like, and then I smelled them. Sure enough, they smelled like gasoline too. So then I thought, "can't be right" so I asked my husband to taste one, and he usually loves to disagree with me, but no, he thought they did too. What on earth are they doing to these biscuits? I… Read Full Review

“Strange smell”

Written on: 26/08/2013 by Islanders (1 review written)

My boyfriend adores dark chocolate McVities, every morning for breakfast. Latest batch however , when opened, had a strange disinfectant smell, very off putting. Since then, approx 1 month, we have not seen the biscuits in our stores. What's going on McVities? We miss our morning ritual… Read Full Review

“wrecked a fine morning ritual”

Written on: 24/08/2013

Have always enjoyed McVities D B's (plain!) in the mornings and then a change happened. They were often broken or crumbled in the packet. They still tasted right so assumed that this happened as result of bad transport (from UK to Canada) and continued to purchase and salvage pieces. THen they were packaged in a box but that didn't stop the breakage. A few months ago I couldn't find them at all except in hard-to-get-to English specialty stores and lately reappeared, smaller and though not… Read Full Review

“Ruined!”

Written on: 20/06/2013 by Vermillionsnake (1 review written)

Cannot believe how awful Mcvities Digestives taste. I really can't buy these anymore as they taste like Bonio. I've even tried all the supermarket's own and the only one I can tolerate is Waitrose. Mcvities, what on earth have we done to deserve this? I've been loyal to you all these years and loved digestives, but they taste like cardboard. Please bring the old recipe back as I miss them… Read Full Review

“Bring back the old recipe!”

Written on: 15/04/2013

Since they went to ‘low fat’ they are always broken in the packs and don’t taste right. Why don’t these big companies ever listen to their customers. Bring back the old recipe! Bring back the old recipe! Bring back the old recipe! Bring back the old recipe! … Read Full Review

I agree with this review, the new recipe is horrible and I will not buy them again, apart from the oily taste it seems impossible to find a whole biscuit in the packet. One word says it all "Rubish".

“Mcvities chocolate digestives”

Written on: 13/04/2013

Absolutely gutted that Mcvities have changed their recipe, absolutely loved the old recipe and I will no longer be buying Mcvities as I really do think the supermarkets own brand taste better or at the very least, on the same par. The new biscuits taste oilier and less crunchy. Mcvities, what were you thinking?! You can add me to the list of lost customers. … Read Full Review

“Burnt edges”

Written on: 07/04/2013 by newlgrays (1 review written)

I would like McVities to bake their Digestives a little longer so that they became burnt around the edges , some packs have nice burnt edges , other packs are wishy washy , even the packs that are a little burnt is not enough but otherwise they are my favourites and also the birds love them too !… Read Full Review

“destroyed a favourite”

Written on: 27/03/2013

Extremely disappointed with the new recipe, biscuit tastes completely different, is smaller and has signific antly less chocolate. Mcvities you have made a huge mistake with your new recipe, please go back ti the tried and loved recipe of old. I will not be buying these biscuits again. Do not waste your money, may as well buy cheap supermarket own brand… Read Full Review

“Snide biscuits”

Written on: 22/03/2013 by Smullen20 (1 review written)

I asked my wife why she bought snide chocolate biscuits and was surprised when she said they were McVities. They honestly tasted like one of the cheap brands and certainly not a premium biscuit you don't mind paying a bit more for and they're smaller. Time to look for a new chocolate biscuit that tastes like chocolate… Read Full Review

“WHY!!....”

Written on: 06/03/2013 by Reeper (1 review written)

Why spoil the traditional well known, well loved McVities biscuit. Mcvities digestive choc biscuits have always been part of my family and friends upbringing. We will be boycotting mcvities in search of other brands. I'm sure they will notice a down turn in sales. Mcvities you have made a 'bad move'… Read Full Review

“Why change something so good?”

Written on: 25/02/2013 by Norman123 (1 review written)

We have been eating McVitee digestives since childhood. We bought our last packet today. What on earth have they done to them? They are usually broken in the packet, they taste odd, almost a nasty back taste and they are nothing like the original biscuit. They had it right, now they have got it very wrong. What a shame. Another British institution gone… Read Full Review

“Awesome”

Written on: 20/11/2012

Really good and has a lot of taste in it. The undisputed king of the large diameter biscuits, this is truly an iconic biscuit. Found in two main varieties, SweetMeal and WholeMeal, the digestive biscuit sets a standard for the whole biscuit world. Its satisfying nature make the biscuit eater consider how many to have at a time 1,2 or maybe 3. It's versatile providing the base for many more elaborate biscuits, (see Chocolate Caramels), and even chocolate covered biscuit bars such as the… Read Full Review

“ Great British tea dunking biscuit is no longer!”

Written on: 20/09/2012 by Diginoo (1 review written)

I have been eating plain and chocolate digestives ever since I was a baby 40 years ago, although I cannot vouch for what they tasted like in the first 10 years of my life I do know that as a kid visiting my grandparents who brought tinned biscuits in Walthamstow London they never tasted as nice like Mcvities! Our family have noticed that Mcvities have not been the same lately - firstly you buy a packet and find that nearly half a dozen at each end of the packet are broken to a certain degree… Read Full Review

I fully agree with this review, the number of broken biscuits in every pack is a disgrace. I will be looking around for something else now

Try Marks & Spencer digestives. Much superior, better flavour and best of all, don't fall apart so easily. I swtched last year after yet another package of biscuits in which the majority of the contents were broken. Would never willingly go back to McVities. Serves them right for changing the recipe!

“So disappointed”

Written on: 16/07/2012

Thought Id purchased the wrong brand so had a re-check. Saw the comments online and find it hard to understand the logic behind this change. They might as well have discontinued the line and save themselves some pain. Will now try another brand as a last resort… Read Full Review

“Good gone bad”

Written on: 02/07/2012 by Barbarajean (1 review written)

I have eaten McVities plain digestive biscuits for more than 60 years as my parents always bought these, a habit I continued. Our biscuit tin always contained a packet of McVities plan digestive. I thought I must have been imagining things when they began to taste different. I happened to mention this to someone else who said they too had wondered what was different. They are now oily, stick to your teeth and taste completely unpleasant. What on earth have you done? Why did change a… Read Full Review
