Dark Chocolate Thins

# 92 This dark chocolate thins is made by Expressi, an Aldi brand. The thin biscuits or cookies come in interesting flavors like orange, peppermint, and ginger. Doesn’t matter which flavor we choose, the biscuits are all covered with delicious dark chocolate... I do love spice-flavored cookies and that’s why I picked up the ginger. And it did not disappoint at all, I can really taste the ginger with every bite of the crispy biscuit. Combined with the dark chocolate, it was hard for me to stop at just one biscuit… Spiced cookies, cakes, or bread are things that I like to try. I don’t mind the taste of ginger, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, or even the licorice-like flavor like star-anise or aniseed in them or in any form of desserts. Like in jelly beans, I get to eat all the black licorice-flavored ones because my kids only eat all the other colors with non-spiced flavors...

Dark chocolate covered ginger biscuits (cookies) are scrumptious. Even better is crystallised ginger covered in dark chocolate...

Oh... so those are more like candies, no? I'd like to try them. I've had soft ginger candy but never had them covered in dark chocolate...

Ohhhh . . . that looks ! We don't have an Aldi's here but I have heard of this store all around myLot. Hey . . . I just looked it up . . . there is actually one in Santa Clarita . . . who knew - ok I'm going there next time I go out there. But anyway. I would give these to my mom . . . she loves ginger anything! I love all those spiced goodies, but not the anise . . . my husband is a big fan though .

You should check it out... They have everything from cookies to electronics and furniture... But don't expect a huge store. The ones here are always very simple and streamlined. They only carry their own private or 'made for Aldi' brands; so if you want something, laundry detergent for example, you don't really have too many choices to get except from one brand.

@sishy7 I didn't realize they had more than just food! What do you recommend getting from there regularly . . . besides these delicious looking thins?

@much2say Oh, their cleaning supplies work for me. They're cheaper than the ones from other supermarket and just as effective. I also get cat food from there.

These biscuits sound really nice. I like the Orange Thins but they are a different brand.

@sishy7 Sorry, I was thinking of the chocolate Orange Thins and Mint Thins. Different altogether but still yummy. I'll keep an eye out for the biscuits.

Ahhhhh ginger, I love the thin sliced ginger that some restaurants include with sushi. Then there's that famous Lebkucken covered in dark chocolate, I really like those. I'm not really into sweets but dark chocolate isn't that sweet and combined with ginger cookies ... yuuummmmmmm

Oh yes, those pink and pickled sushi ginger is a must when eating sushi... I didn't know what Lebkucken was but I looked it up and from the description it is certainly something that I'd like to try...

I think you'd like those cookies @sishy7 they aren't real sweet which is why I like them. I think ginger is fantastic after almost anything savory. All this talk about sushi and ginger is making hungry for sushi.

I don't like spicy food in any form, so the orange and peppermint would be fine for me, but not the ginger.

I don't mind spicy food, but I haven't been able to bring myself to try products like chili-flavored chocolate. I expect chocolate to be sweet or perhaps a bit bitter, but not hot as in spicy. Ginger spicy I don't mind though, I often have them as dessert and beverages too...

So ALDI has found its way to Australia, too. Do you also have LIDL, the other cheapo store from Germany?

No. I think they were thinking of coming at some point last year but they decided to expand in the US instead. I like Aldi's no-frills and private-branding ideas (among other things) to cut costs and keep prices low.

Ginger flavored sounds to be interesting for me as I haven't tried it for biscuits and cookies. Is it a popular flavor? I doubt whether people will like this flavor here

I think it's popular maybe in Europe? There's a Dutch store here and they have a lot of ginger-flavored bread or cookies.

It's good you're around to eat the black ones. I never ate those ones either, except by accident. I like all the other spices you mentioned.

@sishy7 Yes, it's thicker. There's another one I like the Mrs.Goodman Chunkee Cookie Cream Pie. It's a crunchy cookie with a choco cream center. Actually, I like just about any chocolate cookie even Chips Ahoy and Oreos hahaha
