Tower Gate Oaties
Seeing that I am reviewing another biscuit from Lidl, I guess it is time to head across town to the one branch of Aldi I know there and buy some of theirs to see how they compare with their rival discount supermarket. With oatie biscuits (I guess 'oaty' would sound too much like porridge) the comparator is always the McVitie's Hob Nob biscuit (particularly loved by Germans). These from Lidl lack the sweetness of the Hob Nob, they are plainer. The texture is mixed. There are the oat chunks that you would expect but the biscuit around them lacks substance and certainly the greater chewiness of the Hob Nob. The packet is much smaller than many from Tower Gate, notably their ginger nuts. This is not a bad biscuit and in fact would work better as a biscuit-for-cheese rather than as a sweet biscuit.
