Our search for the best snacks in the world continues! Today our international snack blog touches down in Scotland. Last time we reviewed a Scottish treat we received several comments and a poster by the name Auntie Dave recommended we give Tunnock’s Caramel Log a try. Sorry Auntie Dave, we have not yet received our shipment of Caramel Logs, but we have the next best thing. Our international snack review today is on Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Biscuits.
Tunncock’s has a long snack history dating back to 1890. An interesting side note the founder’s father was a coffin maker, good thing he didn’t follow in his father’s footsteps! Thomas Tunnock (the Founder) finished up school and became an apprentice of Aberdour Bakery. Tom worked hard and saved up 80 pounds (the currency, not the weight) and purchased his very own bakery. Fast-forward to today and Tunnock’s is known as Scotland’s Favorite and has a 300,000 square foot factory and employs over 500 staff members! Also did we mention, it’s still family owned?
Our sample of Tunnock’s Real Milk Chocolate Caramel Wafer Biscuits is an 8 pack that features individually wrapped bars. The top call out reads “Still Original Size” but I am not so sure if that’s a good thing. By American standards this candy bar is on the smaller side. Though, I personally prefer smaller candy bars (it’s labeled a biscuit but could be both). The main container is shinny red and gold and looks very patriotic. The Tunnock’s logo appears to be very similar to the centerpiece of the Scottish Royal Banner Flag. Do you really care how this snack from Scotland looks? Let’s move on to the taste test.
If you’ve been following along you know we are searching for inventory for the upcoming release of our international snack store. Will World of Snacks offer Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Biscuits for sale in the US and shipped around the globe? Yes, we plan to include most of the Tunnock’s products when we add Scotland to our selection. Staring January 1st you will be able to purchase Snacks from England and we will add a new country every month. To stay up to date with our progress please leave your details to the right. Keep on snacking!
