In previous postings Mr. Tidbit managed, by inference, to describe the suddenly plentiful “breakfast biscuit” as a thin, cookie-like item not quite sweet enough to be a cookie and (odd, but true) weighing 50 grams per serving. Today’s two new entries might round out the definition sufficiently to excuse him from pointing out any further introductions, of which he guesses there will be many.
In the most recent previous discussion, analyzing Quaker’s new Oat & Yogurt Sandwich Biscuits, Mr. Tidbit failed to note that the 38-gram weight of a serving of that pair of biscuits with a yogurty filling contradicted the 50-gram rule. But: One of today’s new offerings, from Nature Valley (which has three kinds of 50-gram-per-serving breakfast biscuits), is Nature Valley Biscuits, 38-gram biscuit sandwiches filled with almond butter or peanut butter. Thus there is firmly established a second weight class: 38-gram sandwiches without “breakfast” in the name.
The other new entry, Kind Breakfast (nice variation: “Biscuits” isn’t in the name) features oats, millet, buckwheat, amaranth and quinoa (they’re gluten-free); the box contains four (wait for it) 50-gram (yea!) servings.
