McVities Original Digestives

McVities Original Digestives

Digestives are one of those British things. The name refers to an old belief in the antacid properties of the baking soda used to make this biscuit. Today, digestives are probably one of the most consumed foodstuffs in the queen's land - about 51 per second. In my opinion, they are just fabulous! Digestives are quite yummy, wholesome and filling. They are made of coarsely ground brown wheat flour. They are subtly sweet and their texture is quite unique. Digestives are a little dry on their own so they go best with tea or coffee. Because they are made with whole wheat, they contain a good dose of fiber. McVitie's Digestives are the best in my opinion and now come in a ever widening variety. The US travel writer Bill Bryson described the chocolate digestive as a British masterpiece. I couldn't agree more.
