We just love it when chocolate brands expand their range to include other goodies. From snack pouches to cupcakes, truffles to ice creams, Maltesers has treated us to a whole variety of exciting (and delicious) products over the years. The light, malty, chocolatey balls have become one of the nation’s most recognisable chocolates. It helps that the adverts are iconic, too.
Maltesers biscuits first arrived in our supermarkets in January 2020. In February last year, we were introduced to the taste of mint-flavoured Maltesers when the mint buttons arrived on shelves. Then in September last year, a mint-flavoured biscuit came along and went down a total treat with customers.
Well, Maltesers has once again taken its original biscuit recipe and added something new for us to try. The brand most recently announced it will be introducing tangy Maltesers orange biscuits to the range this spring.
The biscuits have three orange and malt mounds, completely coated in delicious milk chocolate. Each pack contains 10 biscuits, so it’s an ideal sweet treat to put out when you’ve got guests over. But knowing how moreish Maltesers are, we wouldn’t be surprised if you polished off a few biccies yourself.
The news comes only a couple of weeks after Cadbury launched a chocolate orange Dairy Milk bar, so they could have some serious competition in the snack aisle.
The Maltesers Orange Biscuits will be available in Tesco stores from 25 April 2021. Priced at just £1.49 for a pack of 10, we think these are well worth a try.
As dunkable as these biscuit bobbles look, we bet it won’t be long before someone creates a delicious dessert or baked treat with them. Last year, a super simple no-bake Maltesers cake went viral for only including six ingredients. And of course, who can resist a Maltesers chocolate bunny bake during Easter?
