“#BRINGBACKOLDMCVITIESDIGESTIVE”

Written on: 09/05/2021 by Mainmademan (1 review written)

I first ate Mcvities digestive as an adolescent and It’s been 23 years now. I had a few good experiences and memories growing up and suffice to say that if there are 10 things on the list, Mcvities would be 4th or 5th . I was astonished the first I ate this biscuit. Everything was too perfect. When you open the pack and bring one biscuit out it leaves tiny crumbs like Doritos (not as heavy as Doritos just light crumbs) on your fingers and you would find shreds and tiny crumbs on the walls of… Read Full Review

“Recipe change disaster.!”

Written on: 17/12/2020 by BryanKnowles (1 review written)

They are no longer digestives original, as they have changed the recipe. The biscuit is smaller thinner, crumbles & breaks easier & lost its distinctive flavour & taste, in fact tastes like an entirely different biscuit, worse than the cheaper alternatives available..Very disappointed in McVities, will never be buying this iconic biscuit again..Was my favourite for 50 years, how things have changed for the worst over those years..Very sad… Read Full Review

“Very sad where has my most favourite digestive biscuit...”

Written on: 15/12/2020 by CatyJane (1 review written)

It’s been a couple of months now since the best digestive biscuit on the market disappeared from the supermarket shelves. There’s something called the Original McVities Digestive for sale .... but it’s not.....they’ve changed the recipe and they taste terrible - cheap, stale and nasty. What patronising idiot makes these decisions? I can monitor my own salt, sugar and fat intake thank you. But the weeks have not been wasted. I’ve tried every brand in all the shops and supermarkets and… Read Full Review

“UNHEALTHY CALORIES”

Written on: 30/10/2020 by FrancescaMatthews (6 reviews written)

A digestive biscuit typically consists of a minimum of 50 calories. These are not healthy calories which will accelerate your weight loss. Rather these are calories that will hamper your weight loss and you wouldn't even know why!… Read Full Review

“Iconic Biscuit Ruined”

Written on: 23/10/2020 by Swampy0769 (1 review written)

We've been massive fans of McVities digestives biscuits for years. Nothing better to dunk in your morning coffee. But recently they've changed. They're tasteless, stodgy & colourless. The two packets we bought this week have gone straight in the bin! Even the dog wouldn't eat them. I don't know what McVities have done but they need to change it back. We won't be buying their digestives again!… Read Full Review

I have noticed a change as well. The biscuits don't absorb the tea like before, and the centre remains crunchy and gritty after being dunked. They have lost the sweetness, and the colour and smell are off. Very disappointing after buying these for years. We have gone to a different brand now, but not as good as the original.

Having been a loyal Digestive biscuit consumer since childhood (now over 70), I am so disappointed with the recent change to the recipe, taste, size and colour. If the rest of McVities range taste as bad, I shall be buying from Lidl’s and saving money… Read Full Review

Absolutely agree!!!... just had my morning cuppa with a digestive biscuit from a newly opened pack. They used to be the perfect biscuit but this one was awful... Less traditional flavour and actually tasted sweeter. Will give rest of packet to the birds! As a vegan will also be going to Lidl!

Absolutely spot on there. Let’s remove all the salt from the recipe and expect them to still be nice. Biscuits are an indulgence. They are a treat enjoyed from time to time and are not meant to be healthy. McVities are just another company that has lowered the salt content sufficiently that all the tubs of lard up and down the country can scoff an entire packet in one sitting and not raise their salt levels too much. You’ve just sold me your last packet of biscuits McVities. Unpalatable junk.

The change they have made has ruined Digestives. We have now stopped buying them, after many years.
