Have you discovered these yet? They are sold at Formaggio in 3 versions and Savenor's in one. If I close my eyes, I'm tasting a perfect Palmier at Le Notre in Paris (that's had lovely piquant anise added). When I open my eyes, however, I am eating a flat 6" disc of flaky sweet crunch.Made in Spain by Matiz, they are individually wrapped in wax paper in packages of 6 . After trying the Almond ones, I prefer the Sugared. Now THIS is a perfect product.Just sweet enough. And if you used to get your anise kick from pizzelles, you may never have them again after you've eaten one of these!

BTW, whole foods sells a less expensive version but they are NOT as good as the Matiz.
I tried.
