Jammie Dodgers muffins now exist – and you can buy them at Asda

IF biscuits aren't your thing but you've got a sweet tooth Asda may have the treat for you as it's now selling Jammie Dodgers muffins.

Jammies Dodgers are usually known for their sticky jam centre sandwiched between two crunchy biscuits with a heart shaped hole in the centre.

But Burton's Biscuits, the parent company behind the much-loved brand, has teamed up with confectionary manufacturer Speedibake to create a twist on the classic.

The muffin version sees a vanilla sponge filled with raspberry jam, and topped with icing and an edible heart plaque decoration.

They launched exclusively in store at Asda this month, which means you won't find them anywhere else and they're not available online at the supermarket either.

The treats come in packs of two (200g), and there's also a Maryland Cookies muffin that's launched as part of the range. This sees a vanilla sponge packed with dark chocolate chips and a Belgian dark chocolate sauce.

How to cut the cost of your grocery shop

MONEY.CO.UK has shared some top tips with us to help you keep your supermarket spend down to a minimum.

  • Write yourself a list – Only buy items that you need. If it isn't on your list, don't put it in the trolley
  • Create a budget – Work out a weekly budget for your food shopping
  • Never shop hungry – You are far more likely to buy  more food if your tummy is rumbling
  • Don't buy pre-chopped veggies or fruit – The extra they'll charge for chopping can be eye watering
  • Use social media – Follow your favourite retailers to find out about the latest deals
  • Be disloyal – You may want to go to different stores to find the best bargains
  • Check the small print –  It’s always worth checking the price per kg/lb/litre when comparing offers so you’re making a like for like decision as a bigger box won’t necessarily mean you get more
  • Use your loyalty cards – Don’t be afraid to sign up to them all. They all work slightly differently – work out what bonus suits you better and remember to trade in your points for additional rewards

Both packs cost £1.50 a pop – or 75p a muffin. The Jammie Dodgers version contains 426 calories, while it's 428 calories for the Maryland Cookies one.

In comparison, Asda's own-brand muffins come in four-packs (400g) costing £1.20 – 30p a muffin. The blueberry variety contains 266 calories.

Asda also exclusively sells Cadbury Caramel muffins in a two-pack (160g) for £1- 50p each – and these contain 313 calories per muffin.

A packet of eight Jammie Dodgers biscuits (140g), meanwhile, costs a cheaper 50p at Asda with each biscuit containing 74 calories.

Instagram food reviewer KevsSnackReviews said of the snacks: "Nice and moist with a good raspberry flavour that replicates the Jammie Dodgers' filling.

"Would be nice to have some cookie bits added too – but this is still a good replication of Jammie Dodgers for a muffin."

And it seems fans are keen to try them out. One person commented: "The most perfect things we never knew we needed." While another tagged a friend writing: "Omg the Jammie Dodgers muffins literally have your name written all over them."

Rob Turpin, commercial director at Speedibake said: "We’ve really taken our time to make sure that the muffins capture the great flavour and taste of these iconic biscuits and I can’t wait to see them on shelf this September."

Jammie Dodgers took seventh place in a recent poll of Brits' favourite biccies.

Last year, Tesco sold Jammies Dodgers with yoghurt in the middle.

But one family was left disappointed earlier this year when every single biscuit in a packet of Jammie Dodgers was missing the jam.
