Another new addition to the Tesco bakery, these Oaty Dunkers seem a bit blander than the wacky items they've been offering lately. But I certainly can't resist an oaty biscuit, so I snapped these up straight away.
These are pretty interesting actually. They're more reminiscent of a flapjack than a biscuit, what with the oats and golden syrup contained within. But they are slightly harder than a regular flapjack, with a nice satisfying crunch to them. They're certainly flavoursome and filling, a pretty worthy biscuit to place alongside the already well populated bakery. But these are specifically labelled as dunkers, so of course I had to brew up a cup of tea, for science. I can't say I've partaken in a biscuit dunk much before, apart from the odd Tim Tam (or Penguin) slam. I've never seen the appeal, and always been wary of biscuit crumbs becoming part of my cuppa. But these dunkers looked robust enough to withstand a tea, so dunk away I did. This is where the texture of the biscuits really shines through. Once saturated with tea, these things stay together, merely softening and gaining a satisfying tea flavour that works extremely well with the oaty, syrupy flavour. I never believed a biscuit could taste better soaked in tea, but in this case I'll freely admit I was wrong. These Oaty Dunkers are meant to be dunked, and you'll be glad you did. Another great addition to the Tesco bakery.
My rating: 5/5
