Today we spent time at my sister’s place, enjoying their brand new baby girl, Sabrina– she’s gorgeous! Less enjoyable though were the PiMs cookies we tried while there.

They are a cracker-like cookie, topped with a half marshmallow/half-mousse-like concoction, and finally coated in chocolate. Sounds good, right? Wrong.

Both Jessica and I did not enjoy them at all. The cookie was too dry, the chocolate was over-whelming, and the filling had less than average flavor.

PiMs are made by LU Biscuits, and so I have to wonder if they’ve always tasted this way, perhaps even since LU was founded in 1846? Or maybe across the various changes, from when Lefèvre-Utile Biscuit Co. changed names to LU, or was acquired by Generale Biscuit S.A., and then acquired again by Groupe Danone, the biscuits lost flavor?
