Marks & Spencers' Dark Chocolate Ginger Biscuits
I can't seem to get away from Marks & Spencers'. Everytime I'm near one of their outlets, I just have to enter.
It doesn't take much for one to guess why.
Hats off to the store designer, their product designers and whoever who's involved with the branding of Marks & Spencers'.
Indeed, I have an affinity for this UK store.
I'm not sure when they came to Singapore, but as far as I remember, it was around even when I was a kid. Mum always bought their almond biscuits (they're so fragrant and crumbly!) and rich tea biscuits.
Ask me what I think of their chain of outlets and I'll tell you that it's simply their clean, homely, not too over-the-top design/feel. Entering Marks & Spencers' is like entering a quaint clean and tidy home where there's no pretenses.
Boy do I love the simple shelves they use:
Check out the way they organise their products. I love it. It's so easy to find anything you're looking for.
And I totally dig their product packaging:
Less is more they say and I couldn't agree more! Speaking of which, let me digress a little and rave about these dark chocolate ginger biscuits.
Was browsing around (as usual) and these biscuits caught my eye. It's dark chocolate coated ginger biscuits, mind you! Two of my favourite ingredients. Okay, yes I do love dark chocolate more, but I am quite a fan of ginger.
So anyways, I bought home a box and slowly ate my way through it, sharing some with my dearest sis and those at home of course.
There were even pieces of ginger in the biscuits:
Ah... I really love it whenever I step into Marks & Spencers' and pick out something that automatically becomes my favourite. So far, nothing I've tried from their store has disappointed me.
True enough, you might think me bias, but hey, to each his own, no? Haha... I am so in love with Marks & Spencers' and I do miss their huge store in the UK. I've only visited London once and I can still remember going to one of their large outlets and simply staring with my mouth agape and almost drooling at everything they had to offer. Trust me, it's a lot more than what they have here.
I guess right now, I'll just have to make do with the selection here! Which isn't too bad actually. :)
