I l-o-o-o-v-e Biscoff!  I also like the new fudgy Oreo.

What about those Annie's ginger-type cookies at Costco (I'm sure I have the name wrong.)  They're a seasonal item around Xmas time.

Fudge coated raspberry oreos. Dangerous little suckers!

I didn't know these existed. Come the next grocery shopping trip I WILL be trying these. My favorite See's candy is the raspberry buttercream so these should be right up my alley.

Porthos, keep them in the fridge; the chocolate melts FAST! Bill Klapp, my mother used to call those "squashed fly cookies". I loved 'em!

Thanks to both of you. I have never had them, but believe that I would kill for them anyway!

WAFER STYLE NUTTER BUTTERS, I pull the wafer base off then eat the peanut butter stuffed tops separately

No, sorry. I used to buy them in the UK, but I'm sure you can find them. Best chance would be to contact them directly and ask.

Ooh, Fig Newtons.  I don't buy them either since I love them.  Too much.

Marks & Spencer Butter Crunch, circa 1982.

 

But recently, the Walker's shortbread variant with Sicilian lemon and ginger.  Spectacular !  Forget the raspberry ones or the chocolate ones.

QUIET!  People are trying to pontificate.

I was wrong - they're from Campbell's, not walkers http://www.647-flori...ls-ginger-lemon

And LU Orange Biscuits http://www.amazon.co...1-8&keywords=lu

 

And, okay, actually anything by LU.

 

I love LU's Le Petit Écolier with the chocolate-hazelnut coating, but I can't seem to find them anymore. Amazon lists them, but shows no availability. Sniff.   :sad:

I despise Nutella, but other than that, I'm right there.

Faux Pas wants a cookie like the Petit Ecolier, but with a chocolate hazelnut coating. Nutella = chocolate + hazelnut, so... %)

How about using Callebaut Gianduja? It's so much better than Nutella.
