Crawfords Biscuits For Dunking, With Fruit Of Course.

These here biscuits by Crawford's, are considered rather old fashioned by some people, well the biscuits may be only small, light, cheap and cheerful, but only cheap as regards the price. The quality of the biscuits, and of the ingredients themselves is quite good. I personally prefer the Crawford's version, because there are some very dodgy companies about. The full name of these is actually Crawford's Fruit Shortcake (tick) Full of Currants..

The Crawford's company was established in 1913, and have been part of United Biscuits since 1960. These biscuits have sugar crystals sprinkled over the outer layer of the biscuit. You can also see the Currants, these are very tasty, and I suppose I will have to say they all count towards the five a day.

These biscuits are sealed in their plastic wrapper to help them stay fresh. This wrapper has the "Best before Date" clearly marked in black, on a clear part of the front, not written in a secret code, like some manufacturers.

These can of course be eaten dry, although most people prefer to dunk them, usually in coffee, but some use tea. These biscuits are made in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, They contain Gluten, and are produced on a line that handles milk, just so you know. I will not bore you with the list of all the other ingredients, you can read that for yourself.

As for the price, you get what you pay for, you will find biscuits like these in discount shops, made by a firm you will have never heard of, these will cost just Pennies. You could also go for companies like Crawford's, these will cost you about 50p for the standard 150g pack. You will also find them in smaller packs, the size that is designed for pack lunches.

I can thoroughly recommend these to all, for dunking, of eating dry..
