I honestly can’t remember if I’ve ever had biscotti prior to this review. That probably means it was less than memorable, right? Well let me tell you, I’ve had biscotti now and it’s delicious.
I was sent Nonni’s Biscotti Bites for review. I was the teeniest bit hesitant as I’d heard that biscotti is best when dunked in coffee or tea. From the Nonni’s Biscotti website: Biscotti are gourmet dunking cookies, pronounced <bis-coat-tee> in Italy, but more commonly pronounced <bis-cot-tee> in America. No coffee for me and it’s too hot to drink tea, but either way, I’m an undunker. That’s right, I said it, even Oreos get eaten then I drink the milk with no dunking involved.
Nonni’s Almond Dark Chocolate Biscotti Bites – A delicious treat full of real almond pieces and dipped into semi-sweet dark chocolate.
Nonni’s Double Chocolate Salted Caramel Biscotti Bites – A joyous indulgence loaded with caramel bits, dipped and drizzled in rich milk chocolate then finished with a sprinkle of sea salt.
Nonni’s Very Berry Almond Biscotti Bites – A decadent bite brimming with fresh nuts, sweet berries and dipped in creamy Greek yogurt.
When I saw the flavors, the Double Chocolate Salted Caramel called to me. It said “Try me first, Billie! And by try I mean try to make it out of here without eating the whole bag! Muwahahaha!”. These are so delicious! I thankfully escaped the kitchen without devoring the whole bag, at least right then. I returned several times to “try” them again.
The biscotti bites are a crunchy cookie so I do see the dunk appeal. The salt balances the chocolate and caramel very nicely. You can see the bits of caramel throughout and the chocolate is sweet, but without being overly so. I also tried the Almond Dark Chocolate bites and while they were good, the Double Chocolate Salted Caramel reigns supreme in my opinion.
About Nonni’s Biscotti, from their website:
Nonni’s Biscotti grew out of true Italian tradition. In the little town of Lucca, Italy along narrow cobbled lanes surrounded by elegant piazzas, our Nonni (an endearing term for Grandma) made biscotti to share with family and friends. When Nonni came to America, almost a century ago, she brought the family recipe with her.
