The Good: Very real chocolate flavor, Inexpensive, Protective canister is nice
The Bad: Very low on nutritional benefits
The Basics: Surprisingly delightful, Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls are the flavor worth picking up!
I love trying new (to me) snack foods. When I picked up the Snakkers Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls (reviewed here!), I thought I would absolutely love them. At the time we bought that canister, we also picked up a canister of Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls. The genuine surprise for me was that both my wife and I found the Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls to be vastly superior to the Espresso flavored wafer rolls. Despite our enthusiasm for the other flavor, the Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls had a more accurate chocolate flavor to them than the Espresso and that made them easy to solidly recommend!
Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls taste sweet and good and make one wish for a chocolate-coated version for even more chocolate flavor. As they stand, though, they are well worth trying and stocking up on.
Snakkers is the U.S. imprint of a Greek manufacturer with a long history. The Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls come in a metal canister that houses about fifty cookies. Each cookie is a 4 1/4" long by 3/8" in diameter tube. The wafer cookies are kept well-protected and outside removing the first two to three cookies, the cookies seem to remain incredibly well-intact!
Ease Of Preparation
Eating Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls is not a real challenge, simply open the canister, pull out a tube 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 canister, the Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls smells strongly of chocolate. In fact, opening the canister emits a chocolate flavor that is distinct and real; these smell just like fresh-baked brownies.
On the tongue, the Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls are dry and chocolatey. As the wafer rolls crack open and one gets access to the center, the Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls taste strongly like chocolate frosting. The sweetness is not at all generic; the flavor is very much chocolate and sugary, which is delightful.
The Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls leave a slightly dry, strongly sweet aftertaste in one's mouth after they are consumed.
Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls are intended as a sweet snack, not a full meal. Four of these cookies (weighing 32 grams) represents a single serving and they are not at all nutritious. Made primarily of sugar, wheat flour and palm oil, these cookies are not at all an all-natural food product. The Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls were produced on equipment that forces them to add a disclaimer about peanuts, sesame seeds and tree nuts. Obviously anyone with a milk allergy should avoid them, though there are also allergy warnings for soy, egg, and wheat!
Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls have 150 calories for a single serving, 50 of which are from fat. A full serving represents 13% of one's RDA of saturated fat, though they are cholesterol-free. The Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls are exceptionally low in sodium for a cookie, having only 15 mg (1% RDA) per serving. The Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls have 2 grams of protein, but no other real nutrients. As one who is working on getting heart-healthy, I wish they had been even a full gram of dietary fiber.
Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls are easy to care for and clean up. Unopened, they have a pretty decent shelf life. The canister we picked up a month ago had an expiration date of July 28, 2018. Kept sealed, I am sure they would have lasted at least that long. As cookies, they can leave crumbs, but because the cookies are found in a metal canister, they have little breakage until one bites into them and generates crumbs then!
Snakkers Chocolate Creme Filled Wafer Rolls are wonderful and worth stocking up on for anyone looking for chocolate wafer cookies in a cool shape! These are perfect with coffee, chocolate milk, or adorning ice cream!
