“ Brand: Stockan ánd Gardens / Type: Biscuits „
Stockan and Gardens Thick oatcakes are the ones you see that are triangular and come in the cellophane pack with the red wrapper. You can buy a 200g pack - 8 oatcakes for around the 90p mark. They are a little more expensive than some of the other brands and indeed some of the other versions from Stockan and Gardens, but to me they are worth the extra pennies as they taste absolutely delicious. The fact that they are a different shape and texture to some of the other brands on the market make them my personal favourite. The thick oatcakes in the red wrapper are sweeter and are somehow much more filling and satisfying. The oatcakes are hand baked using traditional Orkney recipes and do not contain hydrogenated vegetable oils, but palm oil from a sustainable source. What they do contain is plenty of oats, so they keep you filled up for a while as oats are a good source of long lasting sustainable energy. The business is family owned and still based in Scotland. It ships the oatcakes all over the world. Stockan and Gardens also produce sweet biscuits, shortbread and savoury biscuits but have never tried any of these yet. I buy at least 2 packets of the Thick Oatcakes every week and use them as a breakfast substitute or to snack throughout the day. They are also really versatile, one can enjoy them on their own or you can add both sweet or savoury toppings. Here's my oatcake topper "top 10": 1. With Marmite 2. With raspberry jam 3. With cheddar & chutney 4. With peanut butter 5. With pate 6. With butter 7. With tuna mayonnaise 8. With Dairylee 9. With garlic and herb Philadelphia 10. With hummus They are great to bulk out meals like soup and also useful to take to work for lunch if you are bored of sandwiches or are trying to cut down on bread.
