I’m not the world’s biggest fan of wafers, so I’m ashamed to say I’ve had these rather awesome looking chocolate wafers from Day & Night of Bulgaria in my stash for quite some time. Other non-wafer chocolate has always seemed to find its way to the front of the review queue. Well now, it’s time.
This is actually the first time we’ve looked at anything from Bulgaria, so I had no idea what to expect. In fact, everything I personally know about Bulgaria I learned from watching The Wombles.
The first thing you notice about these (the wafers, not the Wombles) is the size. As chocolate wafers go, they’re huge. The “Choco Wafer” in particular looks as though it’s big enough to feed a small village.
The rest of the range are quite similar, but all have slightly different flavours. I was sent only a small selection of the extensive Day & Night range, but they seem to produce about 50 different varieties in all.
Worryingly, once I did try my samples, I found them rather difficult to stop eating. They’re actually quite a pleasant snack. Not proper chocolate by any means, but still quite enjoyable.
The chocolate is thin, but the wafers are light and crispy. They’re substantial, but not too heavy. Just a pleasant snack.
Unfortunately, you can’t buy these online direct from Day & Night. In fact, I think one of the reasons they sent us these samples was because they’re looking for distributors. So if you’ve been considering setting up a Bulgarian wafer shop in your area, you should probably get in touch with these guys.
