The title “prince biscuits” has been given to various foods over time. Most are not American biscuits, but what americans call cookies (which Europeans refer to as “biscuits” when in English language). Today, “prince biscuits” refers to a type of cookie produced by a company called LU. The cookies feature cocoa cream filling sandwiched between two Ritz cracker-like “biscuits”. They are available in eight countries.
“Prince biscuit”, or “prince bisket” first appeared in a cookbook in the early 1600s. In 1602, Sir Hugh Platt’s “Delightes of Ladies to adorn their Persons, Tables, Closets, and distillatories with Beauties, banquets, perfumes and waters. ”LU’s version of prince biscuits emerged in the 1800s, when two French bakers fell in love, creating a company with a name composed of their initials. The duo whipped up a number of treats. Today, their once-tiny company produces these treats with an image of a prince embalmed on them.
