Review: Delta Airlines - Biscoff Cookies

I learned while flying on Delta Airlines that, in additional to the standard peanuts and pretzels, Biscoff Cookies were offered as complimentary snacks (I also learned while flying United on the same trip, that they no longer offer complimentary snacks, at least not on domestic flights.).

I'd never heard of these or flew on Delta before so these were new to me. I guess they must be pretty popular as you can earn Skymiles by buying them. They're actually made in Belgium and distributed by a company out in San Francisco. I opened the wrapper to find a gingerbread-colored cookie emblazoned with the Delta logo.

Unsurprisingly, the cookies is fairly similar to gingerbread cookie or ginger snap but isn't as dense. They're crisp without being too hard and have that molasse-y caramel flavor tinged with cinnamon. The flavor and weight of the cookie are fairly light reminding me a bit of a tea biscuit.

I imagine it'd be quite pleasant to enjoy these on a Sunday morning with a spot of tea or coffee. Unfortunately, the thought occurred to me only after I ate the package I saved for this review...
