Now when it comes to food, snacks, restaurants and all that sort of malarky one of the most satisfying things is when you come across a real surprise - something that vastly exceeds your expectations and leaves you (and your belly!) feeling very happy indeed. Well we had one of those moments here today in @ChocMission towers. We got contacted by one of our readers on twitter saying that we 'had to try these amazing Loacker wafers' . We of course get alot of things like this (mostly from the companies themeselves!), but we trusted our reader today and thankfully when and bought some.

We headed down to our nearest Waitrose store and purchased a 90.0g pack of these Loacker Napolitaner wafers for just a mere £0.90. Even at this point we were well chuffed with out business, the fact the pack also had a sticker on the front called them 'Italy's number 1' further fuelled the fire that we could actually be in for something rather special here. On the note of the packaging it was was very slick indeed. The thick red foil made it look a very premium - suffice to say it wasn't required to actually maintain them over night in any state of freshness.

These were described on the pack as 'crispy wafers filled with hazelnut cream' - before anyone kicks off the hazelnut cream didn't contain cocoa so that was good enough by our reckoning to make them worthy of a @ChocMission review :) Pressing on with our review we were surprised at small each wafer was - imagine a small stubby Kit Kat finger. Small perhaps they were, but this also made them prime dunking material - so dunk away we did! Dunking these into hot coffee made these absolutely to die for! The wafer stayed crispy and the hazelnut cream inside was this dreamy, sweet, woody toasted nut extravaganza - amazing and highly addictive. The team polished off the entire pack in under 30 minutes.

Overall we honestly can't rate these Loacker Napolitaner highly enough - if you love things like the Kinder Bueno or Kit Kats you will  fall in love with these the instant they enter your mouth. Often we get recommendations from our readers where we don't quite get the passion they feel for a particular product but today we probably ended up liking them more than the reader that requested we review them. If you have any doubts whatsoever about whether you should give these a try we say forget that - go buy them right now! Have we gone mad!? Let us know what you think @ChocMission.
