Taste test: When I saw this box on the supermarket shelf, I was kind of frightened by the idea, as it just sounded like it was going to be terrible. Cereal in a biscuit, really? Anyway, I bought it to find out for sure.
The box contained five red foil packets, each containing four biscuits. They looked like elongated cookies, an inch and a half wide and a bit under 4 inches long, and they were fairly thin, with rounded ends, a slight ridge around the top edge and a pattern of (sort of) oat-shaped bumps on top. The bars were generally medium beige in color, but there was some variation, including some dark areas that were presumably the raisins.
I bit in and was immediately surprised by two things: first, a nice light crunch, and second, I actually liked the taste! It didn't have the texture of an oatmeal raisin cookie (it was crunchier) but it tasted kind of like a mix of an oatmeal raisin cookie and a wheat-based cookie. It did taste a hint like cereal, but really much more like an oatmeal raisin cookie. The darker areas were apparently made from raisins, but they were not whole raisins, as the biscuits were probably too thin to accommodate them. I had some of the biscuits with milk, and that was a good combination, but I'm thinking that they would not be nearly as good without.
