Nestlé Joe Hazelnut Wafers

Since watching Choc It Out's 10 Foreign Chocolate Bars 002 video I've been on the lookout for Nestle Joe wafers. So far I've seen a white chocolate variety which I didn't really fancy, and these hazelnut ones which sounded a bit more appealing. Unfortunately they're not actually coated in chocolate, they're just plain little wafer bites with a chocolate hazelnut cream filling.

Each wafer piece is about the size of the bitesize "Bitsa Wispa", for comparison. They taste as you would expect - crunchy, hazelnutty and mildly chocolatey. They're very moreish and good with a cup of coffee. Because of their size it's very easy to get through half of the bag without realizing it! I paid 39p for a 200g bag in B&M Bargains, which I'm sure everyone will agree is a fantastic offer.

Overall, I would recommend these if you see them, they're a nice little snack. They remind me of Kitkat Kubes from years ago. Anyone else remember those?

  1. Nice one Kev! I certainly do remember Kit Kat Kubes, they were really nice. I especially liked the cappuccino version.

    As for these Joe Hazelnut wafers, I've managed to track them down at last (although not at your great price!). They are nice but a chocolate coating would have made them better. I find that generally, Joe bars are not covered in thick enough choc - they need to address that!

    1. Yeah the cappucino Kubes were great weren't they? I think they also did mint and orange varieties too?

      Btw I've heard there's rum flavoured Joe wafers knocking about, definitely one to keep an eye out for!

  3. 39p is an absolute bargain! I have only seen these bags in the 99p Store. I did find the standard Joe bars quite plain and I'm not much of a fan of wafer anyway. These bite sized ones do look very cute though and I bet they tasted really good with a cup of coffee!

    1. These were probably so cheap because they were close to sell by date, as a lot of B&M stuff is. Have you seen any other flavours in 99p stores? I visited a 99p store recently, and loved it haha. They had a lot of european brands there.
