3. Japanese Rice Cake Mochi Daifuku
These assorted mochi rice cakes provide a hint of sweetness in either green tea, oolong tea or matcha flavor. Serve them chilled or room temperature, they are each either filled with peanut, red bean or sesame paste.
4. Balocco Savoiardi Ladyfingers
Best known for their place in the classic Italian dessert tiramisu, these sweet, spongy cookies can be dipped in tea or coffee, or served on their own. Known in Italy as Savoiardi, these sophisticated snacks store well.
5. Biscoff Cookies
You may know these as the secret ingredient in Cookie Butter, or as the in-flight snack on Delta airlines, but these elegant cookies are rich and delicious all by themselves. A good compliment to coffee or tea, the European cookie’s unique flavor comes from caramelizing the sugar during baking.
6. Dried Dark Sweet Cherries
These cherries are 100% natural, with no added preservatives or sugar, and have a great source of antioxidants. These will also work for gluten-free and kosher snackers, and if there’s any left over, they make a great garnish on deserts.
7. Chimango Chili Mango Slices
Naturally dried mango, with no added sulphur, this Mexican-inspired snack is artisinally made in California. Only 100 calories per serving, you don’t have to feel guilty about indulging in this bold, flavorful snack.
8. Manner Hazelnut Wafers
A popular snack in Germany, these Hazelnut-cream filled wafer cookies are light, with just a delicate hint of sweetness. Serve them on their own as a snack, or accompanying a dessert.
9. Lightly Salted and Seasoned Seaweed
10. Pirouline Rolled Wafers
This cookie is flavored with caramelized ginger and a hint of cinnamon, making its flavor as unique as its unusual shape. Serve them with coffee or tea as a light snack.
