sultana raisin cookies??
it has been some time now, but about 5 years ago i was able to get these amazing sultana raisin cookies in the st. lawrence market. these weren't your ordinary round cookies, there were thinly sliced, compressed with raisins, i should probably call them a wafers, but regardless i havent found them in awhile, does anyone know what i'm talking about? if so where can i get them???
Oh man, I had a craving for these a few months back and couldn't find anything similar here. In NZ and Australia they are made by Arnott's (same manufacturer as the infamous TimTam) and I think they're called full o' fruit, or snack right or something. They're so chewy and fruity and delicious! I wish Arnott's distributed here.
I went to Yorkdale Mall this afternoon, entering through the southwest entrance next to Sears. The flower shop at the entrance -- Rutledge Flowers -- has suddenly turned into a British food emporium. Lots of candies, chocolates and yes, Garibaldi currant biscuits. They're $2.99 for a small package (100g). There is a best-before date of September 2009 and, having just opened a package and eaten one, it's flaky and not dessicated-shingle-like. Too sweet for my taste, though.
Didn't Dare used to make a similar sultana-raisin biscuit?
