I love a crunchy snappy bickie! Doesn't everyone? The ginger oil in these thin little morsels is so good and really tips the flavour over the edge to awesome. It can be omitted however. They do stay remarkably crisp for a long time and they freeze really well. Kind of the perfect bite with a cuppa on any morning you care to indulge.
Ginger oil is known to be energizing and uplifting. It is considered an aphrodisiac. So all I'm saying is, you have been warned.
