Press Release


A wafer is a crispy, thin, flat, dry cookie, often used to decorate ice cream and as a garnish on sweet dishes. Wafers are also made into cookies with cream flavourings or caramel sandwiched between multiple pieces. Some famous chocolate bars like Kit Kat and Coffee Crisp are actually wafers with chocolate in and around them. The wafer sheets are prepared by baking between pairs of heated metal plates and usually bear intricate surface patterns derived from these baking plates. Most wafer sheets are rather tasteless, baked from a simple batter containing little to no sugar. Recently, there has been growth in interest for a new type of wafer product, the hollow rolled wafer.
