Review: Loacker - Quadratini Hazelnut Wafers Cookies

Loacker Quadratini Hazelnut Wafers are bite-sized layered wafer cookies with four layers of chocolaty hazelnut creme. They're made in Austria to sell in Italy, but somehow they made their way here to California.

My local chain supermarkets have an 8.82-ounce (250g) bag of these going for $3.99, but for some reason the Asian markets sell them for a buck less at $2.99.

The bag touts that Quadratini (I'm guessing so named for the four layers of creme) are made with all natural ingredients, but more importnatly, that each wafer cookie is 74% filling and that the creme is 9% roasted Italian hazelnuts. Basically, the wafers are really only there to keep your fingers from getting covered in hazelnut creme and to lend a bit of crispiness to each cookie.

The creme, like most cookie cremes, does not contain any cream or milk (that's why it's "creme" and not "cream"), but does have a pronounced, rich note of hazelnut flavor with a touch of cocoa. It's similar to Nutella, but with a lighter, fluffier texture.

These are really good! As long as you don't dislike hazelnut, I'd give 'em a try. If you don't like hazelnut, they also come in other flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and coconut.

I do have to point out that the bag is resealable with a sticker, but it never seems to stick for very long, or very well. It might be the cookie dust sticking to it, but I think it probably needs a bit more adhesive. You'll probably want a clip or something to keep the bag closed.

  1. "You'll probably want a clip or something to keep the bag closed."

    Is it conceivable that the likely walking, talking tubbos hereabouts would or could restrain themselves and not wolf down the entire bag's contents in one scarfing session thus negating any need to seal the bag?

  2. Who needs a resealable bag? I'd definitely eat the whole thing in one sitting haha. 

  3. I love them (hazelnut version), but they are pretty costly at Stop and Shop here in Long Island - $5.19 for a 250 gr bag. I buy them anyway!
