Mrs Chillikbab was of the opinion that the Monte biscuit is the same as the Chocolate Teddy Bear, simply shaped for grown-ups. Needless to say, she mostly buys Teddy Bears, after all why have a boring round biscuit when you can have a novelty one?

However, I was slightly sceptical. And, when I actually tasted a Monte, it was clear that she was wrong. Ahhh, the naivety of the untutored palate! The Monte is quite different. True, it is a crunchy biscuit covered in Arnott’s dark chocolate. However, the biscuit is flavoured with coconut, and has a much crumblier texture than the Teddy Bear.

Other than that, there’s not a lot to say about the Monte, really. They are quite pleasant, but somehow lack the spark that makes a biscuit interesting. It’s a kind of ‘does what it says on the tin’ sort of biscuit. The biscuit that, if it were a person, would be someone no-one dislikes, but is kind of quiet and not very noticeable.

Perhaps a six out of ten for the Monte.
