|Sugar Rusk cookies from Japan|
Sugar rusk cookies aren’t really cookies, I only call them that because I can’t think of anything else to call them. The flavor that I was given is caramel pudding, and just the words themselves already made me salivate! Yum!
|Japanese like to pack each one separately|
As per usual Japanese style, each sugar rusk biscuit is individually packaged in a frosted-edge clear wrapper, which increases its appeal even further. It gave the cookie an almost dreamy kind of presentation.
Sugar rusk is actually like a dried kind of bread thing. Horrible method of description I know, but that’s the closest I can get to. Singapore has this kind of cookie like bread too, but they aren’t so beautifully packaged.
I was filled with so much expectations that the cookie itself was rather disappointing. I had expect it to be better than the cheap ones that I get at Singapore, but it was actually worse. No doubt, it was fragrant and had this touch of sweet caramel and rather coffee-like smell? But the taste itself was relatively bland, and sugar aside, I really couldn’t taste anything too unique.
Not sure where you guys can buy this here, but it isn’t really something that is overly awesome anyway~~ ^^
