Full O’Fruit

Well here’s a fascinating thing. This biscuit has a lot in common with this one. The same claim to lots of ‘real fruit’. The same long, flat slab. However, there are two differences. The Sultana Choc is covered in chocolate, and is good for you. The Full O’Fruit lacks the chocolate, but makes no claims to healthiness. Is this proof that chocolate is healthy and good for you? This could be the information that Mrs Chillikebab has been searching for!

A closer inspection reveals that there are other more subtle differences. The Full O’Fruit is slightly shorter, at only 19cm, The biscuit has a softer texture, which means this biscuit rather lacks structure. And the fruit seems somehow less succulent.

This is clearly Arnott’s out to deliver the exception to prove the rule that ‘healthy’ biscuits are inferior to their full-fat cousins. There’s nothing wrong with the Full O’Fruit; they are quite pleasant. But they are not a great biscuit – if you want my advice, stick to the ‘Snack Right’ variety. I’m going to give these a five out of ten.

  1. Many years ago, I had (and still have), a fondness for a cookie that was called in the US “Golden Fruit, but I called it “Road Kill” cookies.

    Sadly, those cookies were discontinued when the Sunshine Biscuit Company was sold to Kellogg’s.

    When I saw “Full O’ Fruit” in Singapore I was happy the the cookie still lived. Just wish it was sold in the US.
