jaffachocThe last of the ‘twisted faves’ range is finally here to take a look at – this one an attempt to ‘twist’ the Delta Cream with the additional of Jaffa Orange. So far we have one hit and one miss in this new range – so does this biscuit tip the balance to the positive, or the negative?

It’s worth noting that the biscuit this is based on is rather unprepossessing. I”m not a big fan of Delta Creams, and it has to be said my correspondents are not much enamoured either. “We only eat them if we have a desperate need for sugar’ comments Vanessa. So given that, I have to say my expectations for these was rather low.

jaffachocbiscuitWhen you open the pack there is quite a strong orange scent, which is actually rather attractive. The biscuits have the same cocoa outer biscuit as the original, but the filling is replaced by an orange cream. It seems more orange in colour than the filling in the Orange Slice, although this might be an illusion owing to the darker biscuit. At some point I really must get a pack of Orange Slices and these new Jaffa Deltas to see if they are actually the same. And how about the filing in the Choc Orange Tim Tam? And can you still even get Choc Orange Tim Tams? Goodness, the mind boggles.

Anyway, the upshot of all of this is that these biscuits are really quite good. Certainly a huge improvement on the original. As I proffered them around at work, there were various nods and ‘umms’ of approval as they were munched. The orange is nicely done, not to overstated, and blends well with the cocoa biscuit. Overall they are less sugary and sweet that the original, and are much more sophisticated. Well done Arnott’s. They do seem rather good at creating orange-flavoured biscuits.

I’m going to give these a six out of ten.
