BISCOFF – THE COOKIE THAT LITERALLY FLEW INTO THE U.S.
For more than 75 years, Lotus Bakeries has been baking Europe’s favorite cookies and sweets, developing a global following from coffee-drinkers and travelers alike. Lotus Bakeries’ signature Biscoff cookie, derived from “bis”cuit and “coff”ee, is sweet but not overly sugary, with a crisp, caramelized taste that perfectly complements coffee – perfect for adults (kids too!).
Unlike any other cookie, Lotus Bakeries popularity ‘soared’ when, in 1984, Delta Air Lines distributed Biscoff cookies to its passengers who quickly began asking where they could purchase them. Since then, Biscoff cookies have made air travel a little sweeter on nearly every domestic airline and most international carriers, and are sold in stores, via catalog and online in the U.S. at www.biscoff.com.
Biscoff treats, including the new Biscoff Holiday Cookie Totes, can be purchased online at www.biscoff.com and through catalogue sales, 1-800-422-2924, beginning October 1, 2011.
