Lu Cremes: choc-mint & ginger-lemon

Already beloved here for its xlnt "Little Schoolboy" cookies (or as the frenchies would have it, Le Petit Ecolier), cookie maker Lu Biscuits appears to be undergoing some kind of renaissance w/ a whole wave of new prods. Here & now, a pair of sandwich cookies called Lu Cremes in two varieties: a so-so choc-mint and a solidly good ginger-lemon that aptly fits Lu's description of "spicy zing of ginger and tart-yet-sweet lemon cream filling". These, as well as Lu's new Cream Roulee Rolled Wafers, are notable since they represent a more revolutionary direction than its various-tho-satisfying Little Schoolboy spinoffs such as the one made w/ rice-crisp choc a la nestles crunch

From your blog item, it seems you favor lemon ginger. And yet, the chocolate mint cookie is the one with a bite out of it. What's up with that.

Or a hungry photographer.

half baked, do you think maybe the lemon ginger got eaten completely, so a fresh one was recruited for the photo?
