|Munchee Rs. 40 (100g) We liked the Munchee Nice better, though honestly it's quite hard to tell them apart. You probably wouldn't notice much of a difference unless you were really looking for one. The Munchee (and we found this true in all cases) was just a bit more delicate - in this instance less sugary and coconutty.||Maliban Rs. 40 (100g) The Maliban Nice tasted fine, pretty much how you'd expect it to. The biscuit seemed a little less sturdy than the Maliban however as it crumbled in the packet quite easily, making quite a mess. It was also alot sweeter than the Munchee, with more sugar crystals on the top.|
|Munchee - Rs. 28 (80g) There's something about Munchee that we can't quite put our finger on - a delicacy in the taste that makes it just a bit better than the Maliban. That being said, again you'll be fine going for either.||Maliban - Rs. 28 (80g) Again we had very little to say with regard to difference in taste - both biscuits tasted fine and cost the same. It's a marie biscuit, it's fairly simple.|
|Munchee - Rs. 40 (85g) We like the Munchee better and there's a clear difference in taste here. Although the Munchee is slimmer, the flavour is richer and milkier, and it's nice and crisp. This is a good biscuit.||Maliban - Rs. 40 (80g) The Maliban shortcake is a bit thicker than the Munchee, and tastes a bit like a rusk and slightly cardboardey. It's okay, not bad, but isn't quite milky enough.|
|Munchee - Rs. 50 (100g) The Munchee Lemon Puff was pretty good, and we don't even like lemon puffs that much. The biscuit was a lovely gold and toasted, tasting more, how to say, puffy? Like there was actually some air in there, whereas the Maliban one was just solid and hard. Again, the lemon flavour was delicate and not too sweet. A good biscuit.||Maliban - Rs. 50 (100g) We didn't like the Maliban Lemon Puff. The biscuit was too hard, and the lemon cream was too heavily essenced. There was also far too much granulated sugar on the top.|
