European-Style Biscuit Cookies: Love Them or Hate Them?

Recently, I received an email from a PR representative asking me if I wanted to sample Biscoff cookies, "a European treat that's developed a cult-like following among Americans." The company happens to be opening its first US retail store at San Francisco's Pier 39. While I wasn't familiar with the brand Biscoff, I love European-style cookies, so naturally, I said yes. The cookies, which are sometimes called biscuits, are a flavorful accompaniment to coffee. They are crisp and taste like a cross between a graham cracker and animal crackers. Have you ever had them? Are you a fan?

argh, i used to love speculoos, but after living in the land of speculoos they can get tiresome, and are super addictive - it's hard to stop at just one; i am not fond of american-style cookies, so yeah, i only eat the european varities (italian mini-cakes and cookies are the best)

I love these. I'm originally from WI and was lucky that Biscoff is available at three local food stores near my house. I've moved to ATL and since I've been here for 2 months have not been able to find. I had my sister mail me a pack since I can eat a pack a month by myself.

I don't buy cookies for the most part, but these sound like they'd be OK.

My parents, who grew up on the other side of the world cannot get enough of these! Not this specific brand, and they don't call them European-style, they refer to them as tea biscuits, cuz they are so good with tea as they are sweet enough to go with unsweetened tea but not too sweet to not go with sweetened tea.

I grew up on these. My favorite brand is Leibniz-Keks (German), but Biscoff is great too.

These are addictive. They're not super sweet like our cookies and are definitely more similar to crackers but still really good.

Apparently you didn't fly Delta much. They used to always give these away instead of peanuts, which I thought was awesome. I love them!

We get these on flights sometimes, and we liked them so much we went out and bought them to have at home with tea! I don't know if it's just because we are so hungry by the time we get food on a plane, but I'm definitely a fan!!!
