Arnott's Spicy Fruit Roll Review
|Dear Nicey and Wifey|
I've just been introduced to your site by a former Scottish flatmate of mine here in Australia... We had a mutual love for a nice cup of tea and a sit down... The perfect forum for a good old chat...
I wanted to share a little discovery my husband and I made while on honeymoon last year... While sitting in the foyer of our hotel, we supped a beautiful tea called "Irish Malt", a black Assam tea with a hint of whiskey and caramel... After a letter, a couple of emails and a few phonecalls we managed to discover that it was made by Ronnefeldts... We've since been able to purchase some through an Australian importer and our verdict remains the same... Delicious!
I noticed you have received quite a few comments from Australia where there are many interesting biscuit varieties that I have yet to see on foreign shores... I love Arnott's Spicy Fruit Rolls and Kingstons...
I agree with those of your readers who say they don't understand the interest in Irish Kimberley biscuits... My family and friends always insisted on bringing me packets while I was living in Gibraltar, obviously thinking I was missing the "delicacy"... But to tell you the truth, they really aren't my 'cup of tea'... Although I do have a liking for Mikado's (Arnott's Iced VoVo's are NOT the same!)... My shopping list for family and friends visiting was a large packet of Lyons Gold Label tea - now that was worth waiting for... A nice strong brew after a long day at the office... Perfection!
Keep up the good work

|Nicey replies: Yes Arnott's Kingstons are infact made under licence using South African manufacturer Baker's recipe for Romany Creams. Perhaps one of the UK manufacturers should have a go at some of these too, especially given that Gypsy creams (which aren't the same really) seem to have disappeared.|
