Ware1953's review of McVities Cafe Noir


“A Classic ruined”

Written on: 04/02/2021 by Ware1953 (1 review written)

McVitie's need to learn that what customers want most of all is for THINGS TO STAY THE SAME. My heart sank when I saw the new packaging and that ominous "New Recipe" flash. New, but certainly not improved. These are pale imitations of the celebrated Cafe Noir biscuits of old. They are too small to dunk, no longer taste of coffee, are far too sweet and lack the hard, satisfying crispness of the original. I may as well have bought a bag of Iced Gems, or a packet of the cheap generic iced party rings on sale in Pound Shops. Not a smart move, McVitie's.
P.S. I am now off to look for recipes for coffee-flavoured Royal icing so I can have a go at making my own. They couldn't be any worse and, who knows, I may make my fortune if it works!
