Almond Thins - A Simple Pleasure
Isn't it a pleasure when simple things are done well, with the finest ingredients... and stay that way.
In 1886, Belgian spice trader Jules Destrooper established the bakery which still bears his name.
In developing his first sweet biscuit, the Almond Thin, Destrooper insisted on the very best raw materials including summer butter, soft sun-ripened almonds and a spice blend still kept secret today.
Today, Jules' great-grandson Peter Destrooper runs the business, still making this Rolls Royce of biscuits in the tiny town of Lo in West Flanders. Biscuiterie Jules Destrooper bakes over 2,500,000 biscuits a day for delivery worldwide but Jules would recognise his original recipe, still in use today.
Generations of Belgians have enjoyed the crunchy bite, caramel sweetness, buttery warmth and mild toasted nuttiness of Jules Destrooper Almond Thins. Now discerning Brits can do the same.
Try them for yourself. Jules Destrooper Almond Thins are available from Co-op, Ocado, Tesco and Waitrose – RSP £1.54
