The Good: Good flavor, Inexpensive, Protective canister is nice
The Bad: Not truly coffee flavored, Very low on nutritional benefits
The Basics: Snakkers Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls are enjoyable, even if they are minimally flavored like anything remotely coffee flavored!
There are very few things that pop up at my local discount store repeatedly. We have a little store in my town that buys truckloads of merchandise - overstock, returns, and other oddities - sight unseen and then sells the products at awesomely low prices. And yet, despite the entirely variable nature of the rest of the inventory, the discount store continues to get in Snakkers Creme Filled Wafer Rolls. After several months of looking at the canisters, I finally picked up a few. My first experience with the brand is a canister of Snakkers Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls!
Snakkers Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls taste sweet and good, but not at all like anything even remotely coffee flavored!
Snakkers is the U.S. imprint of a Greek manufacturer with a long history. The Snakkers Espresso 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 cookie or two, the cookies seem to remain incredibly well-intact!
Ease Of Preparation
Eating Snakkers Espresso 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 Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls emit a vaguely chocolatey aroma. The scent is very mild and not actually of coffee at all.
In the mouth, the Snakkers Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls are dry, then sweet. The Snakkers Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls have a very sweet and sugary center between the wafer roll layers. The sweetness is a bit dry, much like the exterior and it is not at all unpleasant. It is, however, not at all coffee (or more subtly, espresso) flavored.
The Snakkers Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls leave a fairly dry aftertaste in one's mouth after they are consumed.
Snakkers Espresso 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 Espresso 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 Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls have 160 calories for a single serving, 50 of which are from fat. A full serving represents 15% of one's RDA of saturated fat, though they are cholesterol-free. The Snakkers Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls are exceptionally low in sodium for a cookie, having only 35 mg (1% RDA) per serving. The Snakkers Espresso 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 Espresso 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 25, 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 Espresso Creme Filled Wafer Rolls taste all right; they are fun, but they are not flavored at all like coffee. Between that and the low nutrition of these cookies, I am forced to rate them comparatively lowly. I enjoyed the canister, but I liked the crunch and sweetness; I was not consuming them and finding them to be a convincing coffee flavor for a cookie. As a result, these were fun, but less objectively good than I would like.
