Jeju Sand Cookies

Jeju Sand Cookies are small shortbread biscuits from Jeju Island in South Korea. They are produced by the company Paris Croissant, and this version of the biscuits is characterised by a filling made up of a combination of butter cream and caramel along with a touch of salt and peanuts.

The product comes in the form of small rectangular biscuits built in the shape of sandwiches that are individually packaged in small transparent bags which offer a clear look at the product within, these same bags then being further assembled in a cardboard box with an understated yet original design.

The Monde Selection jury particularly appreciated the combination of the well thought-out texture and well-balanced flavour of this biscuit, which led them to award a Gold Quality Award to this original-tasting product.

Several tasters emphasised, among other things, the high-quality visual appearance of the biscuit, whose structure is exceptionally neat-looking and presents a pleasant thickness.

In terms of its gustatory profile, the main quality of this biscuit is undoubtedly its pleasantly buttery taste.

As far as its texture is concerned, the nice shortbread-like quality of the biscuit was mentioned several times, this quality being one of the greatest achievements to be had in a product of this type. The texture is also enhanced by the extremely unctuous filling.

On the palate, the quality of the cream, which is a combination of caramel and peanuts that is not overly sweet, certainly contributed to the excellent rating conferred to this product.

The finish, which develops very pleasant hints of peanuts and a slight salinity towards the end, makes this very nice product a very recommendable snack that truly deserves its Gold Medal and its nomination to the list of candidates for the Jury Prize.

"Each year, one product per category is awarded the Prize of the Jury as a token of excellence in know-how and quality. In order to qualify, the product must be unanimously selected as a “coup de cœur” by the jury members. The winner of the Prize of the Jury is then selected from a group of just 5 nominees, which makes this award an even greater honour for the recipient."
