Those who know me and my blog, and especially those who follow me on Instagram, know that I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I can usually be found munching on chocolate, or cake, or biscuits…which is why I have joined a gym as this ‘addiction’ wasn’t so good for my waistline!
So when I was offered the chance to sample a new biscuit range of course I was going to say yes.
Godiva has just launched a new collection of biscuits, the Sablés. Altogether there are four different flavours with ingredients sourced from all across the world and they come in lovely vintage boxes.
Sablés – also known as a French butter cookie or Breton Biscuit – are the new creation from Godiva.
The French word for sand accurately describes the crumbly texture and look of these delicious little treats, whose ingredients have been sourced from all over the world.
The travel connotation is carried on through a hot air balloon design, conveying vintage, heritage and quality.
For maximum freshness, in the assortment boxes, they are individually wrapped biscuits.
I was sent a sample of ‘Almond Speculoos’ to try out. These are biscuits with almond and cinnamon.
I have previously had biscuits with cinnamon and can sometimes find them quite strong but the cinnamon in these biscuits is more subtle. The cinnamon flavour is not overpowering and the chocolate is not too strong either, so mixed with the almonds it makes the perfect combination. I have also found that with cinnamon biscuits they can leave a very strong aftertaste but the after taste with these was not overpowering. The almond is also quite subtle. As much as I do like almonds I don’t like a strong almond flavour so I am often wary of almond biscuits and cakes. However I had no taste issues with these biscuits and happily munched away. The texture is perfect too. Not overly crumbly and not too hard either.
I liked the biscuits so much I didn’t share! I think I may just have to try the other flavours too now!
The assortment box of 18 pieces costs £15.
Individual flavours come in a box of 6 for £5.50
