[Irish] Mikado (TheIrishShop.co.uk)
The Irish readers among you will have worked out that these aren’t a new product as such, but they are new to me! I was first aware of them after I wrote about the Oriental style biscuits that have launched recently with the same name - Mikado. When I bought the Tiffin bars from the ‘TheIrishShop’ I took the opportunity to purchase some of these biscuits too.
First thing is first, they are very pretty biscuits, and deserve to be served somewhere special like a children’s birthday party. The biscuits each have two lines of marshmallow on them, topped with coconut, and red jam. The biscuit layer on the bottom was surprisingly soft, and made these very easy to eat. I really liked the mallow, coconut and jam flavours blending together. Although quite sweet I thoroughly enjoyed them!
