I got a sweet "two by two vanilla biscuits" that is loved in England. It is sold by the country's manufacturer "Artisan", which has a history of more than 70 years. The purchase price is 598 yen (excluding tax).
Please have a look, the package design that does not make you imagine the contents at all. There is no sizzle, but the feeling of not being flirting with consumers is rather refreshing.
This picture-book-like design hides the romantic story of "a couple of owls and cats having a wedding on the island they arrived at after a voyage." It is based on the famous English poem "Owl and Cat" by Edward Lear.
This product is a vanilla-flavored biscuit made from such "owls" and "cats."
When you open the box and break the bag, you will find biscuits in the shape of an owl and a cat. It is baked with plenty of butter and Madagascar vanilla.
When I counted it, there were 4 owls and 4 cats alternately.
When bitten, it has a crunchy and slightly rough texture. The more you chew, the sweeter the vanilla and the more fragrant butter will spread. The faint saltiness brings out the vanilla and butter and refreshes the aftertaste, so you'll want to eat as many as you like!
And as expected, British sweets seem to go very well with black tea.
The Artisan Biscuit series also includes the image of the Aesop fairy tale "Rabbit and Kame" and the image of the nursery rhyme "Merry's Lamb". All the biscuits are elaborately made, and they will produce a fantastic snack time with fairy tales!
