It's Christmas grocery time, oh yes it is. No matter how early you think it may be, the seasonal aisles are filling up with all your favourite festive treats, and there are a few new offerings among them, including these Gingerbread Whirls from Mr. Kipling. I've been extremely fond of all the other types of whirls, but a lot of the time I'm not too keen on gingerbread, so it could have gone either way.
I must say, the gingerbread in these whirls is pretty superb. It's fantastically crumbly, and the spice is quite subdued, while remaining very flavoursome. Unfortunately, there is a lot of it, and not enough in comparison to the nice, smooth buttercream in the middle. So while the experience is a tasty one, it quickly becomes quite dry. A bit more filling and these could have been perfect, but they're still worth a try, and will definitely get you into the festive spirit.
My rating: 4/5
