Enjoy these festive cheesecake delights from McVitie’s Digestives

Millions of packs of McVitie’s Digestives, whose name is said to have come from the baking soda in the biscuits, are sold all over the world every year. After its creation in 1892 by Sir Alexander Grant, McVitie’s Digestives, now sold in over 100 countries, including the Philippines, became well-loved for their whole-wheat taste.

Today, 120 years after, McVitie’s Digestives are not just a snack but is now a popular and awesome ingredient for baked goodies like cheesecakes and even tiramisu. Cheesecake is a true favorite among many, and with a cheesecake base made with McVitie’s Digestives, it will definitely be tastier, thicker and has more texture.
