Lidl’s Tower Gate Family Biscuit Mix Review

Lidl’s Tower Gate Family Biscuit Mix cost £2.09 and had a great selection of biscuits to enjoy (or not so enjoy!).

The double chocolate cream had a extremely dry biscuit base and did not really taste of chocolate itself. But the cream filling was really delicious as it tasted of decadent white chocolate while not too sweet and was both velvety and rich. The digestives were soft and crumbly which unfortunately means it would not be great for dunking but the moisture made it much more enjoyable on its own.

The wafer’s chocolate tastes quite cheap and is very hard which is not a bad thing as it gives it more crunchiness but it is let down by the sickly flavour of the chocolate. The chocolate on the wafer reminds me of very cheap Easter egg chocolate. The Neo biscuits were the same as the one’s that I reviewed which you can find here.

The chocolate chip cookie is your run of the mill chocolate chip so there’s nothing to write about it that makes it unique though it is quite dry and crumbles easily and there’s a lot of chocolate chips inside! The oaties were quite contrasting to the chocolate chip cookies as they had a great amount of moistness and you could taste a hint of salt while the cookie melts in your mouth.

The cocoa cream’s are extremely dry- to the point that they will make the insides of your mouth like chalk- so you should dunk these to soften them. They have a light chocolatey taste but the biscuit itself is pretty mediocre and there’s nothing good or bad to write about it.

The Milk Chocolate cream had a malt-like taste from the biscuit while the chocolate had a cream layer below it that made the cheap chocolate flavour a bit more bareable. It is actually quite nice to dunk this into a drink- I chose to do it with a hot chocolate and it was divine!

Meanwhile, the chocolate butter biscuit was a bit different than I had expected- I’ve tried the Tower Gates butter biscuits prior and thought that these would be close. The biscuit was and it was crunchy, toasty and nutty while the chocolate was slightly better than the chocolate used in the other biscuits. Though they are still a far-cry from the deliciousness of the other branded Lidl butter biscuits.
