    This tastes very plain not sweet at all. But with melted chocolate all round each biscuit and toppings it doesn't actually taste over all too bad. I just wouldn't recommend eating these plain unless your diabetic or something. I guess if you wanted to add more sugar into the mix it wouldn't be too bad.  -  23 Nov 2013
