Loacker: Quadratini & Gran Pasticeria

April 6, 2014

Loacker, Quadratini: Lemon - 2+

J's comment > really creamy lemon filling between Loacker's signature crisp wafers; lemon flavor not too sour, a really good balance between a cream filling and wafer

Loacker, Gran Pasticeria: Coconut - 2+

J's comment > just as good as the last trial I had back in 2012, kudos to excellent consistency; loved the shaved coconut flakes that actually tasted like coconut (and not just mystery flakes) and added an extra layer of texture to the already creamy milk chocolate and crispy wafer goodness :)

Loacker, Quadratini: Chocolate hazelnut - 2+

J's comment > very chocolaty; ratio of chocolate to hazelnut filling and wafer crisp a tad skewed towards the chocolate, but no complaints here!

Loacker, Quadratini: Hazelnut - 2+

J's comment > essentially the above without the chocolate; without the chocolate, the hazelnut flavor is definitely strong; after having tried the chocolate covered ones above, these wafers look naked and imbue a sense of tragedy ;)

Loacker, Quadratini: Vanilla - 2+

J's comment > vanilla was subtle, yet definitely present; it brought to mind that this is more like the mild (but no less memorable) sister of the family of wafers tried today

Loacker, Gran Pasticeria: Noir Orange - 2+

J's comment > this particular product had a slightly different wafer top, kind of like a rice puff (?), you can see what I mean from the picture; I love rice puffs, so base-wise, this was definitely on par with the regular wafers used on the other products; dark chocolate and orange combo was not bad, but not mind-blowing

Loacker: Chocolate - 2

J's comment > not bad, but I think the multi-layer wafer factor of the Quadratini gives it a definite edge over the simple three wafer layer in this product

Extra Note
From my previous encounters w the Loacker brand (see below) and from the products tried above, the Loacker base, ie the wafer, has been consistently crisp.

Tried these out at the 2014 GSW show that I was invited to cover by LBMG.
