Another little treasure from Premier Food and Beverages is this packet of German biscuits that Rainer tells me “Are like Germany’s version of Tim Tams – they’ve very popular.”
Now I’ve already tried and enjoyed the Waffeletten from Bahlsen before, but the ‘Chocos’ (we Aussies love to add the letter ‘o’ to anything we like) were being saved for a wintry morning when a cup of tea needed something biscuity as well as chocolatey to go with it.
They look like little picture frames and in Australia we only see this rather pretty style from European imported companies. It’s also encouraging to read that the front of the box tells us that it is ‘more chocolate than a biscuit’ and their website confirms that 63% of it is indeed chocolate – just the way we chocabloggers like it.
The biscuit itself is a rather plain affair, but maybe that is what is needed against the buttery chocolate because it is very sweet. And moreish. The ingredients panel doesn’t state the cocoa content of the chocolate but my guess is that it would be around 20-25% and has that classically European cream taste to it. Which is a good thing, because it makes me sip my tea faster and then have another bite of the biscuit…
Like the flavoured Aussie Tim Tams, there are only nine in a box, so you either need to find two friends or wrestle your loved one to see who’ll get to eat the fifth and last one. Or do what I did and eat them all by yourself and go for a run afterwards!
