I'm in love with these little cookies...I recently came across these at Sony Plaza, they are 100% vrai, which means 100% pure in French.
If you look at the back of the box, they only use "real" ingredients, no additives nor preservatives.
Michel et Augustin is a French company run by two friends, making sweet and savory cookies, yogurt and other items.
I think all their products are pure with no additives nor preservatives.
In each box, 6 cookies are divided into two packages of 3. Since Sony Plaza had 4 flavors, I bought one of each to try.
Vanilla poppy seed--were a little stale but I have a feeling it is because there are no preservatives.
Orange flower water--were nice, the orange flavor "blooms" in your mouth.
Caramel--didn't really have a caramel flavor but reminded me more of brown sugar.
Chocolate chip--didn't jump out at me and were just okay.
Out of all 4 flavors, I think I would pick orange flower water as my favorite. On their site, they have more flavors, I hope Sony Plaza brings more in.
The boxes are cute too....with the cow and photos of the staff. They even give the ingredient breakdown for the 6 cookies in the box: here are the measurements for the orange flower water cookies (per my French-English dictionary)
2 tablespoons of wheat flour
1 nob of fresh butter
1 teaspoon of blonde cane sugar
some drops of orange flower water (3%)
1 egg yolk
1 whole egg
1 pinch of sea salt
2 cuillerées à soupe de farine de blé
1 nob de beurre frais
1 cuillère à café sucre blond de canne
quelques gouttes de fleur d'oranger (3%)
1 larme de jaune d'oeuf
1 larme d'oeuf entier
1 pincee de sel marin
At 315 yen (about US$3.15) for a box of 6, they are a little pricey, but for no preservatives or additives, I think they are worth it.
