Sugar free desserts are now much easier to come across in the supermarkets than they used to be, which makes it possible to snack on sweets and cakes that are not packed full of sugar. While passing by the cake, biscuit and donut aisle at my local supermarket, I noticed the Soft Sugar Free Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Biscuits by Spaans. I liked the look of the biscuits and the fact that they were sugar free enticed me to pick them up and place them in my shopping trolley.
Each 10 oz container of Soft Sugar Free Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Biscuits by Spaans cost $3.99 and it contained 10 servings. When I got home, I tried two of the biscuits. They were rather small bite size pieces, which was fine. I enjoyed the combined taste of the oatmeal and cinnamon. The cinnamon really helped to enhance the flavour of the biscuits. Even though the biscuits were quite solid they were still soft. The biscuits were a bit on the dry side, not moist and greasy. I liked the texture, as I do not like eating biscuits that crumble easily in my hand as I bite into them and having greasy fingers after eating any type of dessert.
Soft Sugar Free Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Biscuits by Spaans were still quite sweet, even though they are a sugar free product. The ingredients revealed that sorbitol and aspartame were added to the product to create the sweetness. It is a good idea to eat these biscuits in moderation, as artificial sweeteners reportedly produce a laxative effect if consumed in large quantities.
