bodacious biscotti. Nava Viniar sent us two huge boxes of their Triple Chocolate Almond Biscotti, just one of the 17 flavors she makes biscotti in. That they have so many types of biscotti is the first unique fact about this company, I mean, I might see 3-4 types of biscotti in a store or at a restaurant if I can find them at all.
There were 24 biscotti in total, two per plastic sleeve, in clear boxes with these brown and pink ribbons. There is no way it is practicing what I preach "Moderation and Purposefulness" for me to eat all of these but the two Acolytes I live with also can't or didn't want these -- one has a tree nut allergy and one is just super picky -- so I shared this a few months back, not long after receiving these, with a group of seven other people. They had a range of reactions so I'll share those with you as I eat two of these myself, Sisters and Brothers.
Getting them out of the plastic sleeve was a challenge for some people while others opened it with ease. I struggled a bit but that's why I keep scissors handy. The scent is not strong when the sleeve is opened but if when I brought it closer to my nose it had a nice baked cocoa scent. It has visible slivers of almonds, white chips and even pieces of darker pieces. That makes since sense this is called "Triple" but also the ingredients listed include cocoa, semi-sweet chocolate and gourmet white chocolate. There are no additives or artificial flavors but there is wheat, almonds, and eggs for those of you who want to know about such things for dietary or social reasons.
bodacious biscotti. As you can see from my review and the reported opinions of those I shared this generous Offering with, people have very different tastes when it comes to chocolate and to biscotti. It looks like these are available in the one dozen boxes only but you know what I think would be awesome, Sisters and Brothers, it would be if you just contacted Nava and asked if she might be willing to send you a mixed box of these to try. That way you can sample the variety she offers and you might find flavors that more of your friends and family like. Personally I thought these were good, they had a very good triple chocolate flavor I could identify and they were good with or without a hot beverage to dunk into. The fact that these were softer was a bonus for me. Ultimately then I think these are a Worthy Sacrament.
