Dollar Tree has a few products that are good for those days when you need a grab-and-go breakfast or a quick on-the-go snack. They sell their own private label version of Pop Tarts, or for something with a little less sugar, you can buy a Dollar Tree imitation of name brand Belvita Breakfast Biscuits under the Sobisk brand name.
Dollar Tree sells Sobisk breakfast biscuits — they’re more like crispy cookies — in several varieties. They sell regular biscuits or cookies, along with a sandwich cookie version that features two biscuits/cookies with a creamy filling between the layers.
Today, I’m taking a look at the Sobisk Breakfast Sandwiches, which come in chocolate and peanut butter varieties.
Sobisk Breakfast Sandwiches cost $1.25 at Dollar Tree at the time of publication. They’re a product of India and are made with 9 grams of whole grains per serving. Each box contains 5 individually wrapped cookies, which comes out to 25 cents per breakfast cookie.
Sobisk Foods LLC is based in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, area. The company’s website says it’s in Morton, Pennsylvania, while the breakfast sandwich boxes state it’s in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Either way, Sobisk appears to be a small United States subsidiary of the larger company Sobisco (short for Sona Biscuits) based in India. Sobisk products are not exclusive to Dollar Tree and may also be found at Walmart or on Amazon, although you’ll probably find a lower price at Dollar Tree.
The chocolate breakfast sandwiches feature oat-based biscuits with a chocolate cream filling, while the peanut butter breakfast sandwiches feature honey biscuits with a peanut butter filling.
Ingredients for both flavors include rolled oats, barley flakes, whole grain wheat flour, wheat flour, sugar, palm oil, malt syrup, invert sugar, baking soda, salt, soy lecithin, and natural and artificial flavors.
If you’re looking out for allergens, the chocolate flavor contains wheat, soy, and milk products. They’re manufactured in a facility that contains peanuts/nuts and tree nuts. The peanut butter flavor contains wheat, soy, peanuts, and milk. They’re manufactured in a facility that contains almonds/nuts and tree nuts.
One sandwich cookie (25 grams) has between 115 and 125 calories, 4.2 to 6.5 grams of total fat, 1.2 to 2 grams of saturated fat, 80 to 115 mg of sodium, 14 grams of total carbohydrates, 2 grams of dietary fiber, and 6 to 7 grams of sugars.
It’s not clear how much of the sugar is added sugar or if some is natural sugars, and the nutrition label also does not state how much the sugars contribute to your daily allotment. Another oddity on the nutrition panels is that they state the peanut butter flavor has 115 mg of sodium or 5% of your daily value, while they say the chocolate flavor has 80 mg of sodium or 8% of your daily value. I’m not sure if that’s a typo or if there is some math going on there that I don’t understand.
In terms of taste, these breakfast sandwiches are really good. They’re crispy and lightly sweetened, and the creamy chocolate and peanut butter fillings hit the spot. I like how these are a step up flavor-wise from plain breakfast biscuits that don’t contain any filling (which Dollar Tree also sells). If given a choice, I’d choose the sandwich variety of breakfast biscuits every time. I like these better than similar Benton’s Breakfast Biscuits sold at Aldi.
Everyone in my household who tried these liked them as well, with my family slightly preferring the peanut butter flavor over the chocolate, although everyone happily ate both. They’re a good option for an easy breakfast or snack. They’re also great for tucking into lunch boxes and picnic baskets, for packing as a camping or hiking snack, or for keeping around as an emergency food.
Sobisk Breakfast Sandwiches come in chocolate or peanut butter flavors. They’re both good for a quick breakfast or snack, although my family likes the peanut butter variety a little better. They’re also not exclusive to Dollar Tree, but you’ll likely find the best price there.
