Wild Berry Fruit Pillow

Wild Berry Fruit Pillow. There’s something rather evocative about that name, almost Shakespearean. What’s that bit from ‘Macbeth‘? Ah yes, that’s right:

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania as the sweet winds billow,
Lull’d in rest on a wild berry pillow.

This romantically named biscuit is the sister of the Spicy Fruit Roll, although filled with jam rather than Christmas. Are the berries truly wild? I’m not sure, but in any case this is a slightly underwhelming biscuit. The filling is really just more kind of ‘sweet and vaguely fruity’, and the roll part is a bit anaemic too.

I somehow can’t imagine these going down too well at a faerie tea party – I doubt they would compare well to purple grapes and honey bags. Probably better than dry oats, though. I’d give these a five out of ten.
