Foster’s Stem Ginger and Spice Biscuits [By @SpectreUK]


I’ve always thought that ginger is one of those flavours that epitomises the taste of winter. These Foster’s Stem Ginger and Spice Biscuits were baked with stem ginger chunks. Made in Market Harborough, in Leicestershire, there were twelve biscuits in the box which weighed 200g. Produced in an environment that handled nuts and sesame seeds, other allergy advice on the box exclaimed that these biscuits contained wheat, gluten, milk, oats, mustard, and eggs. Suitable for vegetarians, the ingredients of these biscuits included; wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oils, salted butter, stem ginger, partially inverted refiner’s syrup, rolled oats, free range eggs, ground ginger, mixed spice (coriander, cassia, cinnamon, mustard, caraway, dill, fennel, pimento, cardamom), milk powder, and salt. Faced with such an unfathomable amount of mixed spice for my taste buds I was a little bemused at what these biscuits would taste like. There was a strong smell of spiced ginger, oats and a syrup sweet smell on opening the box. These biscuits had a brawny taste of ginger too, with an indistinguishable mixture of spices merged perfectly with a delightful melt in the mouth oats flavour after a decent initial crunch. I thought these biscuits were gorgeous, totally moreish and could easily be enjoyed any season of the year.
