Cuétara Krit Canapé Mediterráneo (Black Olive)

About a week ago I went to the supermarket and saw these biscuits that caught my attention.
Made by Cuétara, the Krit Canapé Mediterráneo contains black olives and olive oil.
Soon after having the first one, I realized that it wouldn't live up to my expectations.
The taste to black olives is practically imperceptible and I also found it to be excessively sweet (especially for a thin cracker that supposedly is an appetizer) and greasy.
If you decide to try these or already have, please share your opinion with us.

Gullón Mega Duo Chocolate Biscuits

Most of people like biscuits and most of people also like chocolate, thus biscuits and chocolate is bound to be a winning combination.
Of course that many of us have had some less satisfying experiences, but let me reassure you that this is not the case.
Produced by Galletas Gullón, S.A. in Palencia (Spain), these sandwich biscuits filled with chocolate are a really good option.
I haven't bought them, so I don't know the price, but I know Gullón for many years and their products carry a price tag that usually shows a good relation between price and quality.
But lets talk about what really matters.
I will not say that these biscuits are at the same level as the top brands, but then again you'd have to pay three or four times their price, or even more, but I can tell you that they are enjoyably crunchy and have a decent quantity of chocolate that really tastes like chocolate.
Therefore I will give these chocolate biscuits a positive note.
