Whole Foods Market
NE 15th/Fremont – Portland
This is the first time I’m talking to you about biscotti.
It is not because I hate biscotti. It is because I don’t see them; biscotti are like wallpaper to me.
But yesterday at Whole Foods, while having trouble deciding what kind of cookie I should be eating that day, Jaclyn nudged me toward this one – a new addition to the Fremont WF lineup.
Wheat and sugar free – a virtuous choice for anyone eschewing such things in the new year.
And although I am not such a person (I haven’t lost my mind, people!), I was sold on these facts alone:
• almonds (lots of them)
• almond meal (magic)
• currants (like raisins, but cuter)
• soft (no need to dunk in order to avoid a trip to the dentist.)
What’s not to love? If you’re in the market for for a sweeter situation than this, the last person in the world who will judge you for dipping your sugar free biscotti in a bowl of chocolate or frosting or straight up brown sugar is ME.
*My guess is that there’s some fruit juice in there; they are a tiny bit sweet.
