Pim’s Biscuits are a cookie, similar to Jaffa Cakes.
The cookie consists of a soft, sweetened round sponge biscuit, which is topped with a layer of jam, which in turn is then covered glossy chocolate with the name “Pim’s” stamped in the centre. Each cookie is about 2⅛ inches (54 mm) wide, and ¼ inch (7 mm) tall.
The jam flavours include Cherry, Orange, Pear, Raspberry Lemon, Chocolate Mousse and Hazelnuts, etc.
Some feel that the darker chocolate used on Pim’s Biscuits is better quality than that generally used on Jaffa Cakes.
Pim’s Biscuits are marketed heavily in Britain, but are actually made in Belgium by the French company LU (Lefèvre-Utile), purchased by Kraft Foods in 2007.
Pim’s Biscuits have no relation to Pimm’s the drink.
