Since I have returned to New Zealand, I've tried a wide range of biscuits and generally been pretty disappointed with them all. The common factor is that they all taste like a commercial approximation of what they should be, that falls nearer something concentrating on reduced price than what the product should taste like.
Now, Griffins Krispie biscuits are more than likely only sugar, flour and coconut, but they're also one of the few biscuits I enjoyed.
Observe shaped forms of flour..
Occasionally, I walk down New North Road and notice Kings Roast. One of the places I enjoyed meals from in Atlanta, was a nearby franchise of Boston Market. Well, apart from the cornbread, a strange form of food with a flavour akin to a combination of sand, woodchips and sugar (or more likely corn syrup).
They do a wide range of meals, in this case I chose the chicken one. A roast meal isn't a roast meal without kumara, although they tended to give out more potato than kumara. But with enough gravy, it all tastes good.
Definitely worth a revisit. Although several months have passed, and I haven't been back, due to frugality.
