Review & Competition – Bakers Pantry – Win a Month’s Supply of Luxury Biscuits!
I was lucky enough to receive a GORGEOUS box of luxury biscuits from Bakers Pantry recently, the very same box that is seen above……..all beautifully packed and filled with straw to help to protect the tasty collection and, with a handy map of Great Britain to tell you where the British biscuits all originated from – that was such a nice touch I thought. I was asked to review them in preparation for a new competition that Bakers Pantry are offering on their website HERE. There are FIFTEEN boxes of these biscuits up for grabs, and all you have to do is to pop over to the competition page and enter your name and email address, it’s as simple as that! Bakers Pantry will be drawing THREE names from the hat EVERY day this week, starting on Monday the 6th February and ending on Friday the 10th February, that’s FIFTEEN chances to win!
Here’s some more information about the Luxury Biscuit Club, that is Bakers Pantry:
About The Luxury Biscuit Club
How it all started, and why you should join the club . . .
As soon as people learn about my love of delicious British biscuits I always get asked the same question, but there isn’t a simple answer to the question “what are the best biscuits?”.
So a couple of years ago I started recommending a selection of my favourite biscuits, because I was sure they’d love most of them, and probably find a new favourite of their own.
But as I found more and more great biscuits my list of recommendations got longer and longer – and it was getting more and more difficult to get hold of these delicious biscuits.
The solution was simple. I’d set-up a biscuit club and each month I’d order a selection of the finest biscuits from the best bakers.
Now anyone who really wants to enjoy great biscuits can try a new selection each month and choose their own favourites.
So how does the Biscuit Club work?
It couldn’t be simpler really… All you need to do is Join The Club and I’ll do the rest!
- I’ll choose some great biscuits
- I’ll get them delivered freshly to me each month
- And then I’ll send them to you
I told you it was simple…
The Easiest Way To Enjoy Great Biscuits
So you go to the Supermarket and buy some biscuits every week – that’s pretty easy right.
Well yes, because you are going anyway. But let’s be honest, the biscuits that you get in the supermarket are far from the best Britain has to offer!
Of course, you’re likely to find some delicious biscuits at your local Farm Shop or at a good little Café, but I’m sure you don’t get to go as often as you’d like!
So having great biscuits delivered to you every month by the Biscuit Club is the perfect solution . . .
- No special trips to the Farm Shop
- No time spent finding new sources of great biscuits
- No need to order from different companies and get charged delivery every time
- Just delicious biscuits delivered to your door
It simply doesn’t get any better (or any easier) than this!
Try ALL of Britain’s Best Biscuits
It’s such a shame that Supermarkets tend to overlook the really luxurious, hand-made Biscuits from Britain’s smaller bakers.
Most people simply don’t realise just how many smaller Bakers and Biscuit makers there are in Britain. But when you think about it, you’re likely to find some lovely, locally made biscuits in every holiday destination in Britain – and that adds up to a lot of artisan bakers in the UK…
The only way you’ll ever get to try all of Britain’s delicious biscuits is as a member of the Biscuit Club!
Often using traditional recipes that have been passed down through the generations, the biscuits that Britain’s smaller bakers produce really are a forgotten art. Most of us simply don’t get the chance to find out exactly how good their products are, so we’re on a mission to make sure that everybody gets to try them all…
Support Our Small Bakers
The making and baking of biscuits is undoubtedly one of Britain’s great, traditional industries, and the local bakeries that have survived the ‘supermarket revolution’ should be celebrated – but most of all they should be supported!
We’ve got to make sure that they don’t get gobbled up by the large corporations who manufacture biscuits for the supermarket shelves.
The Biscuit Club is the perfect way to support British bakers, and enjoy some delicious treats at the same time!
Each month we choose great tasting biscuits from different bakers all around Britain, ensuring that they all benefit from the Biscuit Club scheme.
Our bakers do an amazing job, and they really take pride in their work – please help to make sure this forgotten craft is kept alive for years to come.

Review & Competition
I received a fabulous selection of biscuits in my luxury box, which comprised:
- Chocolate Chip Cherry Cookie by Farrah’s of Harrogate
- All Butter Oaties by Frank’s Luxury Biscuits
- Cornish Clotted Cream Shortbread by Furniss of Cornwall
- Fruit Shortbread by Irvings Homestyle Bakery
- Orange Crunch by Bakers Pantry (A substitution for Chocolate Chip Cookies by Fosters)
- Banoffee Oaties by Reids of Caithness
- Giant Triple Choc Cookie by Galeta
Chocolate Chip Cherry Cookie
Made by: Farrah’s of Harrogate
Farrah’s have done it again, this time adding delicious chunks of Cherry to their traditional Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe to produce a biscuit with real flavour. Even the designer tin that these great biscuits come in screams quality!
All Butter Oaties
Made by: Frank’s Luxury Biscuits
These delicious Oaties are baked to the original Oatie recipe, but Franks have replaced the original fat content with 100% butter to produce an enhanced flavour that simply has to be tasted.
Cornish Clotted Cream Shortbread
Made by: Furniss of Cornwall
Lovingly made to a traditional recipe using dollops of real Cornish clotted cream and pure Cornish butter from the Trewithen Dairy, a local family run farm Dairy only a few miles down the road from Furniss HQ in Lostwithiel.
Made by: Irvings Homestyle Bakery
This traditional shortbread biscuit, which has a buttery flavour and short texture, simply melts in your mouth. The juxtaposition between the buttery sweetness of the biscuit and the sharp fruity flavour of the currants brings out the essence of both.
Chocolate Chip Biscuits
Made by: Fosters
The clue is in the name – this is definitely a Biscuit rather than what us Brits would describe as a cookie! That sets it apart from most of it’s choc chip cousins, and it’s delightfully packed full of delicious chocolate chunks.
Made by: Reids of Caithness
A lip-smacking oat biscuit which combines the classic flavours of banana and rich creamy toffee pieces beautifully. This special biscuit was a favourite of the judges at the 2011 Great Taste Awards, awarding it with 2 Gold Stars.
Giant Triple Choc Cookie
Made by: Galeta
For the truly indulgent, this classic, American style cookie of giant proportions has it all. White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate and even Dark Chocolate are combined to make a huge indulgence for one hungry biscuit lover, or a delicious treat for 4 or 5 people to share!
Specialising in delicious, oversized American-style cookies, Galeta are famed for searching out the finest ingredients from around the world and bringing them together in their London bakery. All of their biscuits are made by hand with 100% natural ingredients like organic English strawberries and channel island double cream.
What I thought: The packaging was superb as well as being attractively packed with straw, pretty but practical; it also gave an element of surprise and anticipation! The biscuits all arrived in good condition, with just the odd one being broken, a feat that is often hard to achieve if you had bought them from the supermarket. There was a varied and interesting selection to taste and enjoy – the substitution was just as nice as the advertised biscuit too, indicating a reasonable and fair exchange. The biscuits came from all over Great Britain, which was shown on an enclosed map with tasting notes – from Caithness in Scotland right down to Cornwall…….some of the brands I knew already and I would say that all the brands were of high quality and are highly respected, with an element of quality and luxury. The other great thing about the Biscuit Club is that the biscuits are delivered to your door, and they are ALL British. I also thought that this idea would make a WONDERFUL gift for loved ones at special times of the year, and was pleased to see that Bakers Pantry also offer a Gift Service on their site. The idea of a monthly selection of selected luxury goods is not new, certain chocolate companies do it, but it’s nice to see the same idea being offered for British baked goods; the monthly membership is £23.50 to include postage and packing. Given the variety, quantity and quality of what I received, I think this represents good value. I happen to know that at least one packet of biscuits that I received comes in at £4:00 to £5:00, so not bad value at all. MY overall impression can be summed up in a few key words: unique, fun, quality, British, treats, teatime, regional, value, variety, luxury, convenient and delicious.
Don’t forget that you too can taste the delights of these biscuits, enter the competition with a chance to win – Competition Here!
