Glico Cream Collon – Vanilla Cream

Posted in Lifestyle

Yes, that is it’s name.  Yes, I know what it sounds like.   Before you flood my blog with profanities, let me just tell you about the Glico Cream Collon – Vanilla Cream first.

Glico Cream Collon – Vanilla Cream

The snack with a corker of a conversation starter name arrived into my life via an OyatsuBoxwhere else?  I have to admit I was rather excited to give these a try purely because of the name, and I quickly pushed it up my “to review” list.  Oh, I’m sneaky.

The Glico Cream Collon biscuits come housed in a foil packet inside a resealable box, which helps to keep the biscuits fresh and edible for longer.   I appreciate this immensely, as it reminds me that I don’t have to eat them all at once.  I can show some restraint!

I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect with the Glico Cream Collon biscuits.  With a name so unusual, what can you expect?  Even my dad commented on the name!

Upon opening the foil packet, I was instantly hit with a very sweet vanilla biscuit scent.  I was a little apprehensive that the biscuits might be too sweet for me.  Alas, I was wrong!  

Even though yes, the biscuits do have a very sweet taste,  they are ridiculously addictive and moreish.  I can’t leave them alone!    The filling is so creamy and soft; it practically melts in the mouth.  The outer biscuit shell has a soft yet decent crunch; it gives emphasis and contrast to how creamy the filling is.

I would definitely buy the Glico Cream Collon biscuits again; I want to try the matcha and chocolate varieties!   Whilst this particular variety has proved hard to find, there are other varieties available on most, if not all, of the usual websites.   I have to say, these biscuits are perfect with a cup of tea.  If you do purchase a box for yourself I would thoroughly recommend enjoying them with a brew by your side.

Would you try these biscuits, or would the name put you off?
