For a cookie with ‘Kapow’, you can’t beat this stunning Super Hero Biscuit Collection by master bakers Biscuiteers that is jam-packed – or maybe sugar-laden – with an elite trio of DC Comics heroes of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman and an assortment of super-duper super-hero accoutrements.
From the moment the lid is lifted, a delicate waft of chocolatey goodness wafts in the air. The lucky recipient who gets to unwrap is in for a real treat as layer upon layer of dark card reveals a different set of DC Comics classics from the iconic logos of the golden S for Superman and the outstretched wings of the dark knight Batman to the golden monogrammed belt of Wonder Woman to the sleek bat mobile.
There’s a touch of pop-art onomatopoeia with the cookies emblazoned with kitsch action words: Wham! Bam! Zap! and Pow!
And yes, they taste every bit as good as they look!
The extra-large family tin is designed to be shared. The hand-illustrated gift tin features cookie versions of Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, the Joker and a host of super hero biscuits.
And when all that’s left are your cookie crumbs, use the decorated tin as handy storage – perfect for Superhero memorabilia, mini figs or Top Trumps.
Fun fact Biscuit eating can be a dangerous sport. A 2009 study revealed that 25 million people in Britain had been injured by biscuits, mostly occurring when victims were fishing for remnants of their biscuits in a hot cup of tea. Thankfully, this risk is eliminated when your favourite liquid accompaniment for a cookie is a glass of milk!
