|Chocolate covered gingerbreads from Poland.
In keeping with reviews recently of foreign biccies, I recently sampled a decent if not expensive Polish biccie. The pack had 6 pieces which makes it pricy because I estimated it may have cost 70p, as purchased from Nottingham’s very famous ‘Polish Sausage Woman’ on Victoria Market, but probably available at all those retail places where Polish people gather to buy garlic-drenched, mumified sausages with names worth zillions in Scrabble.
The biccie has a nice quality choccy outer covering with an inner, soft ginger spiced biccy. Not as gingery or as much 'fire' as our Ginger Nuts, but as soft as if a packet of G.Nuts were left out for a week (if indeed any packet has gone uneaten for a week, anywhere, but you know what I mean). A faint flavour of Christmas lingers around the biscuit, but that could just be me.
Overall, very good chocolate, bit pricey, nice treat and a dip into the quality end of European biccies. Not for sharing – well, not enough for sharing anyway and you can’t dip them. A grown-up biccie which would go nice with tea and that other beverage people often drink!
