I was asked if I wanted to try some of The East India Fine Foods Company‘s stuff so they sent me some of their biscuits to review. They sent me some of their Cherry, Choc & Chilli biscuits to try and they arrived well packaged and in the gorgeous tin with gold embellishments. It’s one of those tins I usually buy and then give to other people as presents, but this time I got to keep it!
So, to the biscuit. It was delicious crumbly and initially I could only taste the chocolatey flavour, but suddenly there was an afterburn of chilli which numbed my mouth for a while afterwards. I handed some out to my office and had similar responses, however I gave the other half of the pack to my boyfriend, whose office absolutely loved them! Maybe they were a bit too spicy for me but if you love a bit of heat then these are the right biscuit for you.
A few days ago I received another pack of biscuits to try: Caramel & Sea Salt, much more up my sweet street! They arrived at work and we were feeling in need of a cup of tea and a biscuit so we obligingly partook. These biscuits are much more solid, quite good for dunking as they don’t dissolve and end up at the bottom of your cup (you know when you forget and you get the grainy biscuit dregs in your mouth, I hate that!). I loved the little bits of caramel in it and the biscuit with a gentle salty flavour afterwards. Really loved these ones, hence no pics, sorry I ate them all a bit hastily!
East India Company also sell loads of great other products like Hibiscus Cordial, Exotic Salts and premium teas and coffee. Go have a look at their site! http://www.theeastindiacompanyfinefood.com
