“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Biscuits „
In Sainsbury's today I treated myself to a bag of their Parmesan Cheese Biscuits as I making a concerted effort at the moment to cut down on my sweet and sugary snacks. When I opened the packet I saw these Cheese Biscuits are smaller than I had expected but they look lovely with shavings of parmesan baked into the top of them. They are circular with a nice star shaped effect at the edges and they look very nice indeed. Three of these biscuits contain 37 calories and 1.7g of fat, so bearing this in mind I took six out and had them with a cup of tea. They're OK, but nothing special at all. They are quite cheesy but not as flavoursome as I had imagined they would be considering there is parmesan as a key ingredient, I also couldn't really separate the flavour of the parmesan from the other cheese used in these biscuits. They have quite a chalky aftertaste too which isn't unpleasant but I would have much preferred this to be more cheesy to remind me of what a nice snack I'd just eaten. The texture of the Parmesan Cheese Biscuits was a too hard for my liking. The biscuits are shaped like flat discs and they are very thin indeed at the edges so I was expecting them to be crunchy, but I found these were too dry and hard for me. The cheese on the top made them seem harder too and this was a shame because they would have been so much nicer if there was a little moistness to them. On the edge of the packet Sainsbury's have suggested you use a few of these biscuits to top French Onion soup and I think they would probably work very well like this, so am going to make some soup tomorrow to try it out. Perhaps these biscuits need something wet like soup to take away some of that wretched hardness. I paid 65p for this 100g bag of Parmesan Cheese Biscuits from Sainsbury's, and while they were a tasty little snack I probably won't buy them again because I value what teeth I have left! If they work well in the soup then I may buy then in place of croutons, but otherwise I don't think so.
