Biscuit Blog: Tower Gate Fruit and Nut Cookies

Tower Gate Fruit and Nut Cookies

These biscuits highlight the wide variety that can be found under the umbrella of Lidl's Tower Gate brand.  These are probably defined 'cookies' because of the thickness of them, there are probably three times as thick as a standard biscuit.  The are termed fruit and nut but the amount of fruits and nuts though noticeable can vary in proportion between individual biscuits.  The first one I ate was almost entirely nutty whereas third one had a lot of raisin in it but little nut.  The chocolate is slightly dark rather than milky, so has a serious flavour to it without being bitter.  These biscuits are a little too complex with so much going on.  The depth of them means they lack a snap but they certainly do not crumble.  They do have a reasonable level of moreishness.  Thus, they are good biscuits perhaps only spoilt a little by having so many aspects to them, but overall satisfying biscuits.
