Not disappointed with these. They are excellent. I adore shortbread and the combination of shortbread and currants is gorgous. I, unlike the other reviewer, do dunk these biscuits in tea and adore them this way. The only problem I have is that once I start a packet I find it difficult to stop and not eat the lot.

McVities fruit shortcake biscuits are a great tasting biscuit, they are loaded with currants and are quite crunchy. I am ashamed to admit how many of these delightful treats I can devour at once!

As an added bonus, these biscuits are not at all expensive which may not be a great thing as it means I will certainly order more in the future.

The combination of shortcake and fruity bits is just perfect to go with a good cup of tea and makes the perfect afternoon snack. The pack is a good size, just enough for sharing. My Italian friends love all the English biscuits I give them and this is a favourite for many!

I am a big fan of fruit biscuits, especially if they are super buttery like shortbreads or shortcakes. I did not know of McVities Fruit shortcake until recently and I was very happy with my purchase. The shortcake is firm yet crumbles in your mouth and the biscuits are packed with real pieces of currant.

Recently I have taken to these again. I had not had them for a long time and so I thought I would try them again. I really like the combination of the biscuit with the currant but feel that the biscuit is far too dry. If it was a bit more moist, it would be so much better.

Excellent thin shortcake with the addition of currants, make McVities Fruit Shortcake a lovely snack biscuit. I can't say they are a dunking biscuit because I don't think the fruit goes very well with either tea or coffee, but nice just the same as an accompaniment to your beverage. Plenty of biscuits in a pack and good value for money too.

I never knew I had so many favourites until I saw these. The only biscuit that have sat and eaten at least a whole pack just to myself. That was years back, but I'm sure could do it again. Morish, sweet with juicy currants, this biscuit is delicious and good value for money.
