Bourbon 'Petit' series - mini Strawberry chocolate biscuits

Posted by Linda on 26. 2014 0 comments
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!
Well technically Xmas has already passed, so I suppose it's a 'belated' Xmas greeting from me!

Ok, so it seems like I have reverted back to my old habit of only updating this blog once every several months since my last update was 5 months ago I'm so sorry everyone, and I won't even begin to explain myself again about why I had abandoned this blog for so long AGAIN, I'm sure you all are tired of my excuses by now, so I won't waste anymore time and let's just get right into my food reviews for today shall we?

A few days ago just before Xmas eve, I went shopping at Maruyu Japanese grocery again with some friends in the city, I was in the mood for some strawberry-flavoured snacks at the time so I bought these 2 different packets of strawberry biscuits (cookies) from Bourbon's popular 'Petit' brand of snacks. And if you have been a long-time follower of this blog, then I'm sure you will remember I had mentioned before in the past that I have become a huge fan of Bourbon's 'Petit' series of yummy snacks so I couldn't resist to grab some more of these yummy goodies while I was at Maruyu. One of the 'Petit' strawberry snacks I bought was a packet of mini strawberry chocolate biscuits, and the other is a packet of mini strawberry chocolate chip cookies
I will start my reviews with this pack of mini strawberry biscuits with strawberry chocolate filling:
these biscuits were really delectable, the biscuits had a soft but crispy texture and tasty, they were like mini 'Ritz' crackers. But the star of the show for me was the strawberry chocolate filling, it had a nice sweetness, but what I love about it is that unlike most confectionery manufacturers nowadays that tend to use alot of artificial flavouring and colouring, Bourbon used REAL freeze dry strawberries to make the strawberry chocolate filling, as the chocolate had a slight natural sour taste. Although the second photo is a bit blurry, but you can just barely see the real freeze dry strawberry bits infused into the chocolate filling. The sweetness of the chocolate combined with the sourness of the freeze dry strawberry bits was well-balanced and brought out a lovely natural strawberry flavour, and it complemented nicely with the soft & crispy biscuits.
Overall these strawberry chocolate biscuits were really yummy and great to snack on anytime anywhere, I will certainly buy them again!

My rating (overall):

Now let's move onto these mini strawberry chocolate chip cookies:

the texture of these strawberry choc chip cookies were also quite soft but still crunchy, I believe real strawberries were again infused into the cookie batter prior to baking because I was able to taste the same natural slightly sour flavour of strawberries in the cookies. The little chocolate chip pieces embedded in the cookies also enhanced the sweetness and added some nice texture to the cookies.
Overall these strawberry choc chip cookies were really good too, however I think they're still not quite as yummy as the mini strawberry chocolate biscuits. Although I really appreciate the fact that Bourbon uses alot of real natural ingredients to make alot of their snacks and confectioneries, sadly unlike most other confectionery companies nowadays.

My rating (overall):

Ok so these are my reviews for today...to be perfectly frank, I'm not exactly sure when I'll be updating this blog again, but hopefully it won't be too long, I'll try to update again in the next few weeks, ok?

Until next time, ciao!

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
