Calorie Comparisons McVitie’s Digestive Thins

Mcvities Digestive ThinsEven though I rarely buy packets of biscuits these days, I couldn’t resist stopping by the new range of McVitie’s Digestives Thins to check out the calorie content.

McVitie’s Digestives Milk Chocolate Thins have slightly more calories per 100g than the regular sized Chocolate Digestives but per biscuit, there are 52 fewer calories!

This is quite a big saving if you’re counting every calorie. Even eating two Thins provides fewer calories than a single regular sized Chocolate Digestive.



Although they are being called a ‘healthier’ version of their regular sized counterparts, they’re not really healthier, they’re just smaller with the same ingredients. Take a look at the traffic light symbol further down.

While the Thins may help some people with sticking to a calorie counted weight loss plan, others may find one just isn’t enough and then fall into the trap of ‘doubling up’ to make up the difference!
