If you ask any grown-up to name their top five childhood biscuits, I can almost guarantee (at least if they're as old as me !) that they'll name Party Rings, Jammie Dodgers, Toffee Pops, Pink Wafers and Iced Gems, just not necessarily in that order. Well, how excited was I when I was asked if I'd like to try out the new biscuit from Burton's called Toffee Dodgers ?! It's like a cross between Jammie Dodgers and Toffee Pops - wowee !
But it's not just me being all nostalgic that loves the concept - the kids loved them too. Pierre munched away happily saying "mmmm" and rubbing his tummy appreciatively. Sophie and Juliette said that they were even yummier than the usual strawberry Jammie Dodgers. High praise indeed !
As a mum, I love the fact that the kids can enjoy eating a gooey sticky toffee treat with minimum mess because it's sandwiched between two biscuits. It's a great alternative to chocolate coated biscuits too, which are a messy nightmare in the hot summer months.
The new Toffee Dodgers join the Original Jammie Dodgers on the shelves and if you're really quick, there's also a limited edition Choccie Dodgers, supposedly available until June 2011 exclusively in Tesco's but so tasty (we've tried those too !) that I'm convinced they'll make them a permanent fixture. (Or maybe that's just wishful thinking !)
