Poppy biscuits!

I love the “Biscuiterie du Coquelicot” in Albert (run by Philippe FERET). It’s great for an afternoon snack or to treat somebody before going home. There are many specialities made with poppies (the flower that symbolises the First World War): Neapolitan wafers, syrup, sweets… My favourite goodie in this shop is undoubtedly “Les Sablés aux Pétales de Coquelicot” (Poppy petal shortbread): incredibly tasty! You can also stock up on the local specialities such as “sirop de bleuet” (cornflower syrup), chicory-flavoured Neapolitan wafers, products based on sea buckthorn from the Bay of Somme…
