|I have found the best biscuit in the world, and thought you should be among the first to know. They are from Argentina and come in a box of 12, individually wrapped: 6 gold biscuits and 6 silver biscuits. The gold biscuits are pretty impressive chocolate caramel biscuits but hey, we've had chocolate biscuits before. It's the silver ones that take the biscuit, that win the gold, if you get my meaning.
The description on the wrapper is:
Cookies filled with Dulce de Leche (milk caramel spread) coated with meringue Unwrap it carefully, as the thin orange-flavoured meringue coating may be slightly crumbled from the long journey.
Each biscuit has a net weight of 45g, that's 1.58 oz, so the box feels quite heavy. As for the taste, if you ever get to heaven, I'm sure they will have them there. There's a long list of ingredients, mostly natural, ending in natural orange flavour and vanillin.
That's all for now. Let me know if you want to know more. I'm off home for another one.
It seems there are quite a few of you out there trying to track down these biscuits. Well now some good news for our UK readers as mercadoargentino.com based in London who import all sorts of South American goodies have been in touch to tell us about their webstore and various resellers. Unfortunately we don't have a clue about where people in the USA or Canada can get hold of them - sorry.
