Darrell found a most unusual packet of biscuits the other day that we certainly could not allow to go un-nibbled and unsampled by our discerning palettes.Now, we very much appreciate a chocolate, caramel, hazelnut, and rice crisp type combo in a biscuit, but then to add advocaat, is that a step to far?
Our consumption of said alcoholic tipple is pretty much limited to the odd festive snowball, and is, to be honest considered to be an old fashioned and unfashionable drink at the moment (but could be the next big thing since flavoured cider, you never know), but if anything, the arrival of the biscuits served as a timely reminder that we really ought to finish the bottle that we opened this Christmas. We have to say that you could certainly smell 1% of “alcohol” contained within as soon as we opened the packet…….
…… and you could certainly taste it. We have to admit that though dubious at first we really loved them ……….. in fact they were exceedingly moreish ……. and slightly shame faced, we have to admit to polishing off the whole packet in one
fowl foul fell swoop!
Without the said advocaat the ingredients already ticked most of our biscuit boxes, but its addition was an inspired touch! Another Perfect 10, the second in a week, which in itself must be a record for us!
We shall certainly be buying more. Would it be overkill to serve them as an aperitif to/with a snowball at Christmas? We might have to debate that one a little. But we do know that Hugh, Darrell’s best friend and mentor, who leads the showbiz life in Notting Hill, would greatly appreciate a packet or two, as an amuse bouche at one of his intimate London soirees, especially as we don’t think he would be able to find them, even in his exclusive emporium of choice Harolds!
