We love meat and cheese plates (even though we can never pronounce charcuterie), so we’re always on the hunt for new additions to add to our cutting board.

These Rosemary & Cheese Biscuits sounded delightfully tasty, but we ended up being thoroughly disappointed – in fact we returned them.

First off, the texture on these biscuits is far too crumbly and light – they are so delicate they barely hold together. But truthfully, texture is the least of their problems.

The rosemary is far too powerful, and it does not complement the sharpness of the cheeses – it just kind of sits on top. Rosemary is meant to be applied as a “hint” – this is more of a punch in the mouth.

Also, if we’re being picky, the cheddar/parmesan flavor was a bit unrefined as well – not unlike a Pepperidge Farm Goldfish.

All told, we don’t recommend these biscuits. Unless you want to bring them to a dinner party so you can sit back and snicker at your friends’ reactions to the surprisingly pungent, disjointed flavor.

Summary : We didn't like these biscuits. The rosemary was far too aggressive and overwhelming for our tastes.

  1. I received these in a Christmas basket/gift. @ first I thought it was biscuit mix but after I realized it wasn’t, I opened & tried them. I loved them. I ate 2 for a couple of days. Then I realized they were going fast & they were delicious. I offered one to my daughter’s boyfriend to try as I thought he would enjoy the flavor (he did). Slowly but surely, eating one per day they, are gone. I had re-named them after a few days “savory cheese cookies” since they were like cookies without sugar etc. I will buy them next time I make it over to Trader Joe’s.

  2. I loved these biscuits and bought a dozen boxes. Returned to the store twice this week and they have disappeared from the shelves, along with the giant marinated Italian artichokes. Can I order them online?? Thanks

  3. I loved these biscuits too…amazingly light, crumbly (in a good way,) excellent flavor.
    I am extremely disappointed that they are unavailable.

  4. I absolutely love these with a bit of cold Pinot Grigio. I am so hoping I can get more now in the month of May!
