This is the one cookie that I can wax lyrical about. First of all, it has kept me from acute hunger for years, has been my breakfast and my companion during bus and train rides or afternoons spent studying.
I was ecstatic when I saw it a few years ago on US supermarket shelves.
Little did I know that this cookie has a cult following.
OK, I want to join.
A bit of trivia: Do you know that the four “ears ” of the LU cookie represent the four seasons?
That the 52 “teeth” of the LU cookie represent the 52 weeks of the year? (and the 24 cookies per packet a symbol of the 24 hours in a day).
LU is from Nantes, Brittany. World famous for its butter; created in 1886.
I even acquired a tiny LU cookbook recently, filled with ideas on how to use LU in desserts.
What is your favorite commercial cookie?
