“McVitiea Cafe Noir Biscuits.”

Written on: 18/08/2017 by JoslynErickson358 (1 review written)

The original Cafe Noir was one of my favourites, but the. New biscuit tastes revolting, nothing like a " Cafe Noir". Why Did they ruin this lovely recipe, The tiny biscuits are ridiculous, more like for a dolls tea party. Horrible and I will never buy them in this recipe again… Read Full Review

The inner packaging tears and splits too easily , and can never be re-sealed, rediculousawful tate now compared to the older, larger ones.. Im sure that suprisingly they had a very low sugar content.. Not now !

“Vegetarian at last but no coffee taste”

Written on: 19/10/2016 by Gentry308 (1 review written)

I like the fact that these new Cafe Noir biscuits are vegetarian, but they have no taste at all. We need half the sugar and double the coffee in them. Why are they so small? The old size was much more satisfying to eat. There is no flavour in these at all. These used to be my favourite biscuits. How did these ever get past the tasting committee at Mcvities? It is like soggy cardboard and no coffee element to them. Biscuits this size probably means we spend far more for the same weight of food… Read Full Review

“Worst biscuits ever”

Written on: 22/07/2016 by AlbertHoughton (1 review written)

The old version of cafe noir biscuit was crispy tasty and not so sweet. The new version is absolutely horrible. I gave them to a few people , everybody hated them and then I threw them out. What was wrong with them to change the original biscuit. Unless they bring back the original I would never dream of trying this biscuit again. Personally, whoever came up with this recipe should be fired. No star from me… Read Full Review

“New recipe, new size - utter rubbish”

Written on: 17/01/2016 by RowanMorales (1 review written)

Not a patch on the originals, half the size very little glazing and taste totally different. It wasn't broke so why fix it. We shan't bother buying them again. The original biscuit was great - these are a poor excuse. We liked nothing about the new mini biscuit in a box. Bring back the original… Read Full Review

“What a shame - no more Cafe Noir for me!”

Written on: 01/11/2015 by Hazelhorse (1 review written)

Having loved Cafe Noir for years I was very keen to try the 'new recipe'. I wish I hadn't bothered, they wereclike a completely different biscuit, half the size, hardly any icing and what icing there was hardly tasted of coffee, and the biscuit itself reminded me of a lump of cardboard!!! What used to be my favourite biscuit is no longer and I will certainly not be purchasing any more, in fact most of the pack went on the bird table - and they were not very keen!!!… Read Full Review

“Why change a winning recipe???”

Written on: 28/10/2015 by PJK99 (1 review written)

Why change a winning recipe... I always look forward to buying a pack of McVities Café Noir when I visit the UK.. Yesterday I purchased a pack, after I finally found them, due to the new packaging. when I opened the box I expected to see two small packs of the same size as I was used to..but no.. we have a bag of mini biscuits.. My first thought was..well they will be no good for dunking.. My second thought was..oh the biscuit looks different and the icing is thinner.. My third thought on… Read Full Review

“Biscuit Disaster”

Written on: 14/09/2015

What a disaster the new format biscuit is!.After years of being a devoted Cafe Noir fan I am so disappointed in the revised biscuit. Why did you have to change anything about the original product?It now consists of a smaller,thinner and much more expensive biscuit in a large presentation package,shame on you Mcvities. I will certainly not be buying them anymore… Read Full Review
