The Good: Good flavor, Generally good ingredients
The Bad: Comparatively expensive, Not robustly coffee flavored, Obviously low on nutritional benefits
The Basics: Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits are fairly good, but not an incredibly accurately-flavored wafer cookie.
My wife and my mother have conspired to give me a good holiday season and new year. My mother has been looking for gifts for me (I'm a bit of a pain to shop for!) and my wife did the research needed to find something truly wonderful for me. My wife found a subscription box service for new food products that she thought I might like and might enjoy reviewing and my mother decided to take the plunge and subscribe for me! The first box just arrived and tonight I thought I would show my appreciation by reviewing something right away. I chose to review the Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits right off the bat because I am a huge fan of wafer cookies.
Unfortunately, Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits - which are a chocolate-covered wafer cookie - are an imported cookie that tastes good, but is not at all a good rendition of coffee flavor for the center of the cookies.
Loacker is an Italian company and the Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits come in a box with a protective tray, that houses the dozen chocolate-covered wafer cookies. Each cookie is 1 7/8" long, 1" wide and 3/8" thick. The wafer cookies are kept well-protected and each chocolate-covered wafer cookie remains perfectly well-intact, even if it is not the most environmentally-respectful packaging.
Ease Of Preparation
Eating Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits is not a real challenge, simply unwrap the cookie tray within the cardboard overwrap and consume. Once one selects a cookie, all you have to do is stick it in your mouth and chew; there is nothing complicated or foreign about eating these cookies.
Opening the wrap around the tray of the Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits delivers a very mild chocolate aroma. The milk chocolate scent from the Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits is mild, but sweet. The Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits are not so aromatic as to be inviting by their scent.
In the mouth, the Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits are sweet and chocolatey. The chocolate is sweet, light and interestingly buttery in its flavor. The center, wafer cookie, portion of the Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits is dry and sugary, without actually having any real coffee flavor to them. The sweet, buttery chocolate accents the dry, sugary center without adding any nuance or flavor to the cookies. The chocolate flavor dominates any other flavors in the Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits.
Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits are intended as a sweet snack, not a full meal. Four of these cookies (weighing out at 33 grams) represents a single serving and they are not at all nutritious. Made primarily of milk chocolate, coconut oil, and wheat flour, these cookies are not at all an all-natural food product. The Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits were produced on equipment that forces them to add a disclaimer about almonds and obviously anyone with a milk allergy should avoid them.
Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits have 180 calories for a single serving, 100 of which are from fat. A full serving represents 39% of one's RDA of saturated fat and they have 5mg of cholesterol. The Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits are exceptionally low in sodium for a cookie, having only 60 mg (2% RDA) per serving. The Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits have 3 grams of protein, but no other real nutrients. As one who is working on getting heart-healthy, I wish they had been even a gram of dietary fiber.
Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits are easy to care for and clean up. Unopened, they have a pretty short shelf life; our box, which arrived just a day or two ago, had an expiration date of March 2017. Kept sealed, I am sure they would have lasted at least that long. As cookies, they can leave crumbs, but because the cookies are coated in chocolate, the milk chocolate can melt and require one to wash up, lest they leave milk chocolate fingerprints all over!
Loacker Cappuccino Fine Milk Chocolate Biscuits taste good, but do not have a recognizable coffee flavor to them to compete against the quality chocolate that coats the wafer cookies, making them a tougher sell for the price than they otherwise might have been.
