Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits by Traders Joe’s

Breakfast cer­eal and I have a troubled rela­tion­ship. Despite not being a fan of cer­eal or oats, they became my break­fast every morn­ing dur­ing a 6-week intern­ship in the UK many years ago. It was an easy break­fast, but I’d had enough for a life­time and have barely touched these foods since return­ing. That is until I received these Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits by Trader Joe’s made with grains grown in north­ern France, water from the Loire Valley, and blue­ber­ries from across Central Europe. Each box comes with 5 packs of 4 biscuits.

These break­fast bis­cuits are crunchy and dis­tinct from break­fast bis­cuits in Australia by hav­ing a pro­nounced savoury fla­vour to counter the sweet­ness of the blue­ber­ries, so you feel less like you’re eat­ing a snack cook­ie and more like you’re eat­ing break­fast. That said, I find both the savoury and sweet blue­berry fla­vours too strong by the second bis­cuit, con­stantly reach­ing for a drink to mel­low the fla­vour but also to add mois­ture to the dry bis­cuits (a prob­lem com­mon to all break­fast cer­eals) and then to dis­solve the bis­cuits that have stuck between my teeth (not a prob­lem you’d want to be deal­ing with dur­ing the morn­ing rush).

These bis­cuits are enjoy­able for those who appre­ci­ate cer­eal or oats for break­fast, but only in much great­er mod­er­a­tion than 4 at a time for me.

This box of Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits by Trader Joe’s con­tained 250 g or 5 packs of 4 bis­cuits. They were man­u­fac­tured in France and gif­ted by fam­ily vis­it­ing New York, the United States of America in 2016.
