How can you not love how happy that kid is? These biscuits were haunting me. Every store in Bay Ridge or off Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn carries them. Finally on a trip to pick up shea butter, they found their way into my shopping basket at Fertile Crescent. At only $1 it’s difficult to argue. The inside features two packets of wrapped biscuits each containing 6 biscuits. Don’t quote me on that as I ate them all (not in one sitting mind you).
They’re darker than pictured. They have a nice intricate pattern with the name Abu Walad imprinted. The flavor is pleasant. Both the biscuit and the cream are moderately vanilla-ish though there isn’t much of the latter in terms of filling. Really these are tea biscuits in what looks like sandwich cookie to the untrained eye. The crunch is probably around a 9 on a scale of 10. They’re highly dunkable in tea and coffee. In fact the name says it all, the company that produces them is called TeaShop.
In a head to head against other sandwich cookies it doesn’t hold up but from a value and tea biscuit standpoint these are winners. I’d definitely check them out again as it prevents me from buying a whole box of Oreos or something similar. For the pricepoint these are great biscuits. The biscuits are a product of Yemen.
