Iced gems

Oh cute little biscuits of my childhood, you are sorely missed! :P
Iced gems were so next on Jinjerup's Snacks & Treats theme list, for you guys who aren't familiar with what they are, I'll try my best to give you a description of what these precious yummies are.

They're actually little round biscuits with cute dollops of hardened icing on top, and they come in 4 colors of icing. The ones found where I am are usually pink, white, yellow & green. Wonder why they didn't make more colors plus I wonder who got to choose those colors, why pink, yellow, white & green? :P Well, from what I've just read, the updated color palette of these iced gems are white, yellow, orange, red and purple.

Sugary goodness in every little munch, I used to bite off all the icing, keeping them aside to nibble after finishing off the round biscuit base! :P From what I recall, I got really hyper from all that sugar! grin* If you guys have never tried them, you should, they are very adorable!

If you had the chance to pick 4 colors for your customized batch of iced gems, what colors would you choose? :)

These are totally my favourite too!
I can't stop eating them everytime my mom brings home a packet. I usually bite the harden icing first
