The Hills are Alive with Wafers

I love wafers. Previously I spoke about Creamy Colons, the Japanese wafers, and also Pirouettes, made by Pepperidge Farm, of Pepperidge, America? England? I don't know.

Anyway, Europeans also make good snacks and have the packaging to back it up. I was recently at the Westside Market on 110th & Broadway. I guess this place closed a while ago, before I even moved to New York, and is now back. It's right across the street from Dagostino's Fresh Market. I have to say, the Westside Market is better. Sorry Fresh Market.

I was standing in line at the Westside Market and I noticed a section of wafers. It was very emotional, needless to say. I bought some Balocco Wafers, the milk ('latte') variety. They are good. Not as good as Creamy Colons. Not nearly as good, actually. They taste like something Keebler would make. But at least the packaging is more delightful.

Can you see the cute little wood barrel of milk, accompanied by flowers picked from the hills?

They weigh in at about 9 ounces

It doesn't get much better than eating wafers while reading FAPPAF
