These biscuits look like little fishes and have bright tang of vinegar.
Now this is some clever packaging for a snack. Burton's fish and chips biscuits come in a bag made to look like the front page of a newspaper, a nod to how the real thing is served in Britain. Open the bag and in it are biscuits shaped like fish and chips. None of this cuteness would be worth anything if the biscuits are not good. But they are. In fact, they are so good I cannot stop eating them. The bright tang of vinegar wakes up a jaded palate and the biscuits have a fine, crisp texture. Unlike the real thing, they are baked, not deep fried. Another point in Burton's favour.
