Oats: My mouth gets dry just thinking about them. Even oatmeal can sometimes give me an uneasy feeling. This was my first instinct when finding out about Nairn’s Gluten Free Oat Cookies. While my initial inclination was only marginally right, the neutral tones of the oats did well to convey all the biscuit flavours.
Chocolate has an alluring nature that most of us can’t seem to resist. What’s really great about Nairn’s chocolate oat cookies is how subtle the flavour is. If it weren’t for the neutral taste of the cookies’ oat base, the chocolate would be everything but present. It looks like it would be chocolate-flavoured, and the first crisp bite of the cookie is undeniably true to that. The remaining bites (cookies come in packets of four), leave you waiting for more chocolate explosion. If you want to tease your tastebuds, I’d suggest having these with a cup of coffee, or even having these the next time you make some s’mores!
