Exciting news biscuit fans, I just emailed Fox's to enquire about their dark chocolate "chunkie" cookies, which claim that they "contain" (not "may contain") Cows Milk.

The reply i got was:

"The cows milk may be present in the dark chocolate as dark choclate is
produced on a line which also produces milk choc. "

So it would appear it is just an allergy notice.

According to Ocado the ingredients list is:

Wheatflour, Dark Chocolate Chunks (19%), Vegetable Oil, Sugar, Dark Chocolate Drops (9%), Oatmeal, Partially Inverted Refiners Syrup, Desiccated Coconut, Glucose Syrup, Molasses, Raising Agent: Disodium Diphosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate, Salt, Flavouring, Emulsifier: Soya Lecithin, Dark Chocolate Chunks contain Sugar, Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Emulsifier: Soya Lecithin, Natural Flavouring, Dark Chocolate Drops contain Cocoa Mass, Sugar, Fat-reduced Cocoa Powder, Dextrose, Emulsifier: Soya Lecithin, Natural Flavouring

Oh dear :( These sound lovely, but I've been boycotting G&Bs for saying "contains..." so I've now got a decision on whether I keep doing that... if I'm gonna do it, I'll do it consistently!

*thinks hard* :hmm:

G&B have milk actually listed on the ingredients though. They could suddenly start putting milk in intentionally and you wouldn't be any the wiser, so the Fox's things are a step up from that.

I always avoid the things that say 'contain milk' because I (seemingly incorrectly) assumed that some of the flavourings, or other trace ingredient, was sourced from milk.

Yeah, I know... my reason for that plus anything saying "contains" is because I think it sends a mixed message about what vegans do/don't eat - but I digress and I'm taking this OT (sorry Mr F - was thinking out loud and probably shouldn't have done!)

I might give in and buy these anyway - they sound yummy :)

Just back from Morrisons with 3 packs of these! They were half price at 74p so it seemed wrong not to indulge :)

Had two cookies on the way home, very nice. Could quite easily work my way through a pack very quickly :D

I tried to get some of those biccies yesterday but they didn't have them. They did have ones with raisins in them, do you know if they are suitable for us Mr Flibble? :)

I looked for these in Tesco today... they had the milk chocolate and fruit and nut, but no dark chocolate. :( I'll try looking around for them, they sound great.

When we used to have a Somerfields they stocked them.

I found some in Kingston Waitrose today. 1.59 for 10 cookies. I thought they were okay but I'm not best qualified to review them as I'm not a big biscuit fan (I prefer cakes or soft cookies).
