Trader Joe’s – Loacker Quadratini Dark Chocolate Wafer Cookies – Food Review

Little squares, that’s what quadratini means.  But these are really little cubes.  That would be six squares in a cube, if anyone’s counting.

These are just like sugar wafers in the US, except they’re different.  The typical sugar wafer is a five layer combination of  light wafer cookie and relatively sweet creamy filling, most often in the shape of a long rectangle.

The Quadratini are a similar layering of a light wafer cookie with a creamy filling between layers.  Except in this case there are nine layers in the finished product.  And instead of a rectangle, the cookies are cut so that the length and width of the cookie roughly equals the height of the layers leaving a nine layer cube of around 3/4 inches (19.05 mm) to a side.  This creates a very bite-sized, very dainty and very light cookie.

The other difference between this and the US variation, is the sweetness.  These are not very sweet.  There’s a very European feel to the chocolate wafer and chocolate filling.  The taste of high quality cocoa predominates, minus much of the sugar that makes cocoa into chocolate.  Now, if this flavor isn’t for you, there are 10 other flavors available – but possibly not all at Trader Joe’s.
