When I was contacted by the lovely people at Bakers Pantry to review one of their monthly boxes I knew that if I dared say no I would be in deep water for a long time to come with my co-reviewers, so of course I jumped up and down waved my arms about and shouted YES PLEASE!
You can use the Bakers Pantry in two ways – shop for your favourite British biscuits saving you a trip to your local farmers market, or you can sign up to the monthly biscuit boxes for £19.95 you are delivered a selection of the finest biscuits from Britain’s finest traditional bakers – none of which are available from your local supermarkets shelves. Each month on the date of your choosing at least 7 different biscuits (over 1kg in weight) will arrive on your doorstep for you to try.Month 1 is an introductory selection which includes some fantastic award winning biscuits. This is the box we received.
|Information sheet and what could be nestling under all that packaging?
Inside our box we found an amazing selection, with something that fitted everyone’s tastes.
Ash jumped straight for Big Ted’s Giant Cinnamon Cookie winner of Great Taste Gold 2010. As is well know by now Ash’s reviews are short and sweet and this one was no different with delicious, brilliant and I want another please. 9/10The information sheet gives you an area to write your verdict and score which you can then upload onto the site and help future buyers with their decision on which biscuit they should buy. Every single one of these biscuits gained an 8 or higher from the Bailey / Carroll tasting panel – high praise indeed from us I have to say.Our selection box brought to us 7 different biscuits to try and other than Big Teds they were:Grandma Wild’s Yorkshire Parkin Biscuits 9/10Frank’s Marmalade Oaties 8/10PT’s Jumbo Raisin & Milk Choc Chunk 10/10
Dean’s of Huntley Stem Ginger Oat Biscuits 8/10
Teoni’s Fudge Out Crunch Cookie 8/10
Maclean’s Luxury Shortbread. 8/10Ash doesn’t like raisins which meant more PT’s for me and Mum, as you can see from the run down we both thought these were gorgeous and they got a big ol’ 10 / 10, if someone had told me I’d be loving the mix of chocolate and raisin cookies I would probably be found laughing and thinking they were a fool.. But alas I am the fool as they are delicious. I wish I had saved these bad boys for last but they were in fact the first to go and my choc raisin cravings have been left unfulfilled (which while on a diet is probably a good thing anyway)To be honest you can’t fault any of these cookies, they are delicious, and great with an afternoon cupper, for dunkers the marmalade oaties and ginger stem oat biscuits were divine, for shortbread lovers the shortbread was a buttery delight, the fudge brought forward a crunchy, sweet and fudgy experience; and lastly but by no means least Grandma Wild’s Yorkshire Parkins are scrunchy, with a hint of ginger and spice. This box defiantly gets a big old 10/10 from us! I know quite often a box of these sorts of biscuits can cost around £3 – £4 each making these great value as well as a fantastic way to try new biscuits. Ash has already said he wants to sign up too this, I have to say I am really tempted myself, as they do make a lovely afternoon snack.
