These come in a couple of different types but it was the poppy, sunflower and rye version that arrived on my desk one slow lunchtime. So how would they go? Would my lunch be a symphony of glorious slices, or something more mundane?

It’s worth noting that these biscuits are quite big – perhaps 10cm square. You get two individually wrapped packs in each box – so you can keep half the pack fresh for lunch another day. I tried them loaded up with sliced tomato and cheese, as well as au naturel.

Structural integrity was excellent, which means you can take a bite out of the biscuit without the remainder splintering into pieces and depositing tomato slices on your clean shirt. They handled the tomato test well too, without a hint of sogginess from the tomato juice marring the texture.

And they taste OK to. With a topping they actually are pretty good; when eaten on their own they have a hint of ‘burnt cooking oil’ about them – perhaps from the sunflower seeds. It’s not overpowering though, and you can actually just eat them alone as a fairly satisfactory snack.

The only disappointing thing about them is the ‘Vita-Weat’ branding. Usually Arnott’s are very good about this kind of thing, but in this instance they seem to have omitted the ‘h’ out of ‘wheat’. Perhaps their spell-checker was broken on the day they designed the packet.

I’m sure I’ll have them again – I’m going to give them a six out of ten.
