Bourbon biscuit

Bourbon biscuit

The Bourbon biscuit (sometimes referred to as a Bourbon cream or just Bourbon) is a sandwich biscuit consisting of two thin rectangular dark chocolate biscuits with a chocolate fondant filling. The Bourbon is commonly acknowledged as a "mid range" biscuit, the presence of the chocolate fondant filling means it can not be regarded as being merely an "entry level" biscuit.

Overview

The Bourbon was introduced in 1910 (originally under the name Creola) by the Bermondsey biscuit company Peek Freans, originator of the Garibaldi biscuit. It is apparently named after the House of Bourbon, an aristocratic French and Spanish family. The Palais Bourbon is the seat of the French Parliament (in the same way that the Palace of Westminster houses the UK Parliament.

It is similar in construction to the circular Hydrox, Oreo and the slightly smaller custard cream, but different in ingredients and taste.
