The first time I tried a biscotti was decades ago when the coffee craze was hitting Portland. I saw these tasty looking bars displayed in a pretty, tall glass on top of the pastry case and gave it a try. I had no idea how crunchy, how dry they were and bit into the cookie without the necessary liquid dunking portion. Not good. Cookie crumble everywhere AND the flavor of the cookie doesn’t really release unless it’s moist. My biscotti fail.
Years later I tried using the proper dunking technique and enjoyed the taste of the cookie however, I’m not a soft food kind of person. My husband is from the Chicago area and has a favorite sandwich that is completely dunked in sauce, oh wait – I think he calls it gravy, and the bread is so mushy I just can’t take it. I’m not a fan of mushy food so I wasn’t sure how the latest version from Nonni’s Biscotti’s THINaddictives would go over for me, but I was willing to give it a try.
Here’s where they begin to win me over, they are thin. Very thin slices of biscotti with pieces of raisin, or pistachio, or craisins that you can dunk in your favorite hot beverage if you like, but the flavor is nice and detectable even if you don’t dunk. That works for me!
Nonni’s Bicotti’s THINaddictives are sold in boxes that contain pairings of cookies in cellophane bags. They are easy to transport in your purse for a quick treat however, they are delicate so if you don’t mind some cookie crumbles, just toss them in your bag! 100 calories per serving. If you like a bit of crunch with your treat this cookie is for you. With flavor offerings of Cranberry/Almond, Pistachio/Almond, and Cinnamon/Raisin/Almond you are sure to find a flavor you’ll enjoy. My favorite – this week anyway – is the Pistachio/Almond. Slivers of pistachio with a delicate taste of almond, it’s delicious. And this thin version of Nonni’s Biscotti pairs so perfectly with frozen Greek yogurt or ice cream it’s fantastic! July is National Ice Cream Month ;->
