The people at Border Biscuits sent me a lovely gift box to review. Far from being the traditional box of biscuits, they are both unusual and delicious.
Arriving thoughtfully wrapped up in Christmas paper, the boys took one look and immediately knew that it was something they might like. With the wrapping quickly ripped off, it’s easy to see why they are calling this range “Deliciously Different.”
This ‘Deliciously different’ biscuit tin comes with a tantalising assortment of biscuit favourites, they are unusual and with combinations of flavour that need to be tried. These biscuit tins make for excellent hostess gifts, and for something different from the usual bottle of vino, or cracker tin.
I spotted the tin in Debenhams Online for £7.50, so it would make for a perfect first footing present (a present for visiting friends and family after the new year begins)
The tin is quite solidly built and is reminiscent of old cottage kitchen with the decorative writing and splashes of colour.
The unusual flavours in my gift box are:
- black forest cookies
- strawberry and cream
- chocolate and orange shortbread
- lemon souffle cookies
- chocolate and walnut brownies
- toffee apple crumbles
Try them if you can, they really are a lovely biscuit. I still love how my boys get all excited about a new biscuit or sweetie as it gets unwrapped.
In my box, there was a little booklet that explained all about Border Biscuits, baking the best buscuits they possibly can.
