Unboxing Little Hearts Classic
Details on the Pack
Taste Experience of Little Hearts Classic
I am gonna open and consume this Little Hearts classic.
We can see here; the little hearts biscuits give a flat baked aroma as well slight caramel aroma (maybe from sugar).
The treat is heart in shape as seen on the pack and it is in brown as well in dull white color. The heart has three borders which has gap between each. The sugars are sprinkled all over and filled between the gaps. I can see an oily finish or more like the sugar in melted condition finish.
If we look on the back side, it has a baked pattern.
The little hearts are rough in sense of touch and the sugar sprinkled can be felt. The treat can be broken to two halves as we have seen in little hearts advertisements.
The back side has a rough patterned texture.
I kept the biscuit in my mouth with the sugar sprinkled touching my tongue. The sugar creates a sharp sweet at random sugar crystals touching the tongue.
But it doesn’t feel the same way on the back side. The back side of the biscuit has no known taste it was flat with baked flour. From my perspective, the dough might have some sugar added but it can’t be felt.
I gave a try of biting one heart; it gives a crisp biting experience and is so good. No wonder every 90’s kid fell for it. I love it too.
The little hearts clings to the memory of my taste buds and is addicting to me. It gives the sweet taste even after consuming and asking for more, especially the sugar sprinkled side.
Little Hearts Classic ’s Ingredients
Other name : Maida
Source : Wheat grain
How: The wheat bran is separated from wheat grain. The endosperm part i.e. Starchy white part of the wheat is ground to form the Maida flour.
Why : Refined wheat flour acts as a base ingredient in little hearts biscuit production.
Source : Sugarcane
How : The sugarcane is crushed and the juice is extracted. Then it is purified and crystallized.
Why : Sugar is used for adding sweetness in biscuit as well to sprinkle over the biscuit which is the speciality in little hearts. Sugar added in making biscuit also improves the color i.e. sugar turns to brown color by mailard reaction. Thus, helps in improving the texture too.
Source : Palm fruit
How : Oils can be produced either from palm fruit as well as the seeds inside. Palm oil is extracted from the palm fruit not from the palm seeds.
Why : Edible oils are used for shortening the dough i.e. to make the biscuit crispier.
As the name suggests, raising agents are used to increase the volume of the biscuit.
- INS 500 (ii)
Name : Sodium Bicarbonate

Source : Industry
How: Ammonium bicarbonate is produced by reacting ammonium with water and then with carbon dioxide.
Why: Ammonium bicarbonate (E 503 (ii)) releases CO2 during baking which increases the volume of the product.
