Snack Sunday: Haitai Cream Wafer
Written by Ji | 10 December 2017
Last night, I started to feel ill and hoped that after 8 hours of sleep, some vitamin C, and a whole lot of water, would keep me from getting any worse. Sadly, my attempts were futile. I woke up with a sore throat, strong headache and a desire to stay in bed. But before I take the day off and sleep the day away, I needed to eat something first before I take medicine. When I’m sick, I normally don’t like to eat anything. The thought of food makes me queasy. I always have crackers in my pantry for this occasion, but for some unknown reason, they were not there. I will figure out that mystery when I feel better but as for now Haitai Cream Wafer is the closest snack I have to crackers.
When I opened the package, I became amused. It was wrapped again in a material similar to cookie sheets. When I tore the strip off, I noticed that the wafers were divided into 2 sections. A perfect snack to share for 2 people.
The wafer had a nice vanilla scent, with a hint of something fruity. When I took a bite, I instantly knew what that fruit was. It was banana. But there was something else too, something zestier. When I first took a bite, I thought my senses were betraying me. But when I looked at the ingredients, it confirmed. It was vanilla, cream, lemon and banana. I have to say, this was a nice surprising combination.
Would I buy this again?
Yes, I would. If there are any banana lovers out there, I would recommend this treat. Haitai Cream Wafer has a strong banana taste with hints of vanilla cream and lemon. It’s surrounded by a nice layer of wafer, that had a nice fresh taste (maybe due to the cookie sheet wrapping). If I could find this, in hazelnut or in chocolate, I would gladly buy a good chuck of it.
