Christmas: M&S Viennese Gingerbread Creams

My love for gingerbread continues today in the form of biscuits. Now these aren’t just any gingerbread creams, these are M&S Gingerbread Viennese Creams. After the triumphant Mr Kipling Gingerbread Whirls I do wonder how M&S can top them. Each pack contains 8 viennese creams in sets of two in a plastic tray. In comparison to the exceedingly good Mr Kiplings’, M&S have gone for a far lighter buttered shortbread and spolodges of buttercream filling to avoid the potential for slippage, as well as giving them a far more uniformed appearance.

Mcvitie’s have bought out these new milk chocolate teacakes and I for one being a major Hobnob fan, am mighty excited.  For an introductory offer of £1.00 in Sainsbury’s that really isn’t bad for 8 chocolatey teacakes.
