Carluccio’s Mostaccioli Biscotti – Chocolate-coated Cinnamon Cookies Review
Now, when I went to Carluccio’s to buy some goodies for Christmas I decided to try some new things and one of the new chocolate things was the chocolate coated biscuits I found.
Now, I don’t expect chocolate excellence but given that the large version of the chocolate panettone is nice, I thought I’d give them a chance.
Interestingly, these cookies are not consistent. They are both soft and crunchy, thick and light and thin and dense. They are both tough to eat and easy to eat and I suppose this is one of the things I disliked about these cookies. Not that I usually dislike anything chocolate coated but these cookies were a regrettable exception.
Also, despite the claim on the packet that they were cinnamon cookies, they had an odd flavour. I am sure that perhaps they are an acquired taste and that I’d need to take some time to learn to like them but as it stands right now, I’ll stick with the large chocolate panettone.
Is there anywhere in the United States to purchase Carluccio’s Mostaccioli Biscotti – Chocolate-coated Cinnamon Cookies ? I lived in Italy for several years (near Naples) and came to really like these cookies. However, I do not seem to be able to find them in the states. I’d really appreciate any help you can give me.
