Okay alternative to the original

I’m reviewing this product because I got a free coupon from Ocado. The biscuits are tasty and a good alternative to the original biscuits if you’re watching your sugar intake. My brother said he couldn’t really tell the difference between the original and light version.

Not keen on artificial sweetener

These taste ok, not as good as the original version, but I wouldnt buy them as they contain polydextrose, an artificial sweetener, which can cause inflammation and an upset stomach. Id rather just have sugar in a biscuit and eat less than have an artificially sweet one.

I was given these by Ocado to review. They are delicious and to be honest are better than regular digestives for my family's taste! Less sugar is so much better they haven't lost their signature taste it just enhances the flavour by being less sweet. Perfect with cheese.
