Dolce Delizioso — Loacker Wafer Cookies

It’s not often that I eat mass-produced, grocery-store cookies, preferring instead to visit an honest-go-goodness neighborhood bakery for just-baked treats. But I do make exceptions for Australian Tim Tams, and French La Mere Poulard butter cookies.

I don’t know what it is about foreign packaged cookies, but they are pretty irresistible.

Now comes Loacker wafer cookies.

First created by the Loacker family in the Italian Alps, and now manufactured in Austria, these multi-layered cookies are now more readily available in the United States. They have been made for more than 90 years, and are already sold in more than 80 countries.

Airy, thin, crisp wafers are spread with a creamy filling, then stacked again and again, so you get a marvelous mix of sweet crunch and softness in every bite.

They come in a variety of flavors, shapes and sizes. The Classic features three layers each of wafer and filling in a plank shape. The Quadratini takes that further with four layers each in a cube shape.

I’m partial to the Chocolate Dark Noir, which is a sandwich of cocoa wafers hiding cocoa cream, with the whole shebang enrobed in dark chocolate like a candy bar. Break off a piece like a Twix bar, and it’s the best of both candy and cookie worlds. Needless to say, this one did not last long in my house.

  • I used to eat these a lot as a kid!

  • How, I used to love eating wafer cookies. They were always my favorite. I think my Mom used to get a popular brand made in Hong Kong that also did that strawberry filling. I have to keep an eye out for these, but also have to see if there are any saturated fat. 🙁

  • Wafer cookies are one of the few we purchase! I suppose we can make them at home, but we’ve never tried. One of those occasional treats, and you can buy such good ones. This is a terrific brand. And a terrific cookie. Thanks.
