I usually wake up with Brayden climbing onto my rib cage – ready to start his day much earlier than his Mama. I rub my eyes, and groggily shuffle downstairs in search of some lukewarm coffee (leftover from the pot Dan brews before heading to work). It’s been like this for a while, me with a mediocre cup, getting the kids ready for the day.
Lately though, I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy a new morning luxuary – delicious Nonni’s Biscotti. They’re a sweet and simple morning joy and I might just be addicted!
If you’re not familiar, Biscotti is a light crisp cookie – perfect for dunking or for munching alone. Nonni’s is the most popular selling brand in the US and the only national brand sold coast to coast. My guess is that it’s their dedication to quality ingredients including real eggs, butter and bittersweet chocolate that make them so irresistible.
I was SO excited to be given the opportunity to try out all eight of Nonni’s fabulous flavors and it is near impossible to pick a favorite.
Originali Biscotti: A crisp cookie with the flavors of almond and walnut with just a touch of anise.
Cioccolati Biscotti – The original dipped in chocolate. Yum!
Turtle Pecan Biscotti – With caramel and pecans – a real treat!
Toffee Almond Biscotti – A light crunchy cookie with English Toffee, Almonds, dipped in chocolate.
Salted Caramel Biscotti – That perfect combo – sweet and salty with pockets of caramel and a dip of chocolate.
Decadence Biscotti – A dark brown chocolate almond biscotti dipped in bittersweet chocolate.
Triple Milk Chocolate Biscotti – Chocolate heaven with coco biscotti with chocolate chunks and chocolate drizzles.
Limone Biscotti – A light lemon cookie with sweet white icing.
I really did love ALL of them but I will try to narrow down some favorites for those of you ready to get out and try them for yourself!.
I am a huge fan of the salty sweet trend and so I absolutely adored the Salted Caramel Biscotti. The perfect combination and really luxurious! I love the crunch of the course salt and the smooth chewyness of the caramel bits.
I am a twin mom and so of course, get my chocolate fix whenever I can. I tried hard to figure out which I liked better – the Decadence Biscotti and the Triple Milk Chocolate Biscotti and have to say that they both were fantastic. I really can’t choose but would HIGHLY recommend them.
For my kids, the Originali Biscotti was perfect for their little teeth and for not-so-messy hands. They loved it!
I couldn’t keep all this goodness to myself, so I got some of my mom friends together to enjoy a little coffee and biscotti play date. It was the perfect way to relax with friends and we had a blast choosing flavors to try. I loved that biscotti was such a simple food for entertaining – no plates necessary and it’s easy to munch while you chat!
My girls were so impressed with the variety and how each flavor was so different than the next. “It’s like they all have their own little identity!” one friend said. Others loved the texture and one shared that she was really surprised how light the cookies were – having expected biscotti would be hard. “I expected to break a tooth and that’s definitely not how these are at all” she said.
