Thanks to both an attentive reader who told me about these, and to Mr. VSiB who stumbled upon them at the Aldi and brought them home. They’re a simple, but flavorful biscuit, available both plain and with hazelnuts. To me, they’re reminiscent of a slightly sweeter digestive biscuit. Each box contains nine individually packed pairs of biscuits, so they’re easy to take with you for a snack or as an accompaniment for your cup of coffee.
Both Mr. VSiB and I preferred the hazelnut biscuits, although the plain weren’t bad. Much like the Nizza cookies I posted about earlier, I could see these working well for recipes that call for a cookie or graham cracker crust! And I checked with the manufacturer and they confirmed that the emulsifier (mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids) that they use is sunflower based!
It looks like the Millville brand is made especially for the Aldi, so that’s where you’ll find these.
