The thought of having biscuits for breakfast sounds terribly decadent, like having cake for the first meal of the day. But Marks & Spencer's Breakfast Biscuits are not the sweet, crisp treats you devour at tea time.
They are a lot more substantial, so the individual packs of two biscuits each provide a reasonably filling breakfast on the go.
The Cranberry & Raspberry version is easier to like, as it is studded with dried cranberries and freeze-dried raspberries. Concentrated prune juice and prune puree add some sweetness, together with demerara sugar. Delicious with a cup of milky tea or a takeout latte.
More health food-like is Honey & Oat. The biscuits, aside from flour, also contain wholewheat flour, oat flakes and malted toasted oats. The honey is discernible, but not particularly strong.
Breakfast Biscuits, $5.90 for a 180g box, from Marks & Spencer. For the list of locations, go to global.marksandspencer.com/sg
