These biscuits are packed in an orange wrapper. The outer pack has a see through window on the right side.

The calcium requirement for kids of different age groups differ. Kids aged between 4 to 8 years require 1000 mg calcium each day. Whereas those aged between 9 to 18 years require 1300 mg calcium each day.

Appearance-wise, these biscuits are neither thick nor chunky. These are thin in size. The top portion of these biscuits appears slightly cracked. In addition, these have a diameter of 4.5 cm.
These biscuits have an enticing aroma of vanilla and malt.
Going by the labels, we expected these biscuits to have a taste similar to that of Bournvita. You know, how most of us ate straight from the jar as kids. However, these showcase a nutty, barley type flavor together with slight notes of vanilla and chocolate. It doesn’t taste like the Bournvita we have grown accustomed to, or how their new crunchy spread tastes like.
The overall sweetness is balanced for adults. However, keeping the target audience, i.e children, in mind the sweetness might be on the lower side. Especially if you compare these to the cream filled, sugary sweet cookies and biscuits they often eat.
In terms of the texture, these biscuits are crisp. These thin sized biscuits have a nice crunch. No complaints there.

- These biscuits are crisp.

- Inviting aroma of vanilla and malt.
- Though the sweetness is balanced, it might be slightly low considering kids as the target audience.
