I’m not a lover of chocolate despite having a very sweet tooth. I’d much rather a wine gum than a Hershey’s kiss. I’ll eat it if it’s there and the last resort though. Biscuits, on the other hand, are my Achilles heel; my favourite meal/ pastime is sitting with a packet of biscuits and a can of diet coke. It’s a balanced diet… 😉 It’s a known fact that a packet of biscuits is not safe in my hands; once I start I cannot and will not stop.
Grisbí is heaven amongst biscuits, the italians know how to do a good dessert I must say, as I have recently discovered. This soft baked and richly filled cookie is possibly the closest thing to an orgasm inducing dessert. For real. It comes in different flavours: chocolate, coffee, cappuccino, cherry, lemon etc. filled with a rich filling of its particular flavour. I find the lemon just a tad too creamy and sickly sweet, but lemon cake lovers will go crazy for this. My favourite is the Hazelnut. It’s like Nutella but only slightly creamier and light enough to dissolve pleasantly in your mouth. Mmmmm my toes are curling just at the thought.
Enjoy with coffee, tea, fat or diet coke but best accompaniment is either a Salted Caramel Mocha or the Vanilla Spiced Latte from Starbucks. It’s like GODDAMN!!
Available at all good retailers or online. Just pace yourself.
