Bohemian Spa Wafers

It’s no secret that I do not like sweets.  The only exceptions to the rule are when they are absolutely decadent and/or they fall into childhood obsessions.  As a kid, I was the unusual one who would give away all of my Halloween candy, never wanted the cotton candy at the fair and frowned at the thought of eating one of my aunts famous candy apples.  Now some odd years later, I received a package that made me revisit my childhood.  Bohemian Spa Wafers arrived in the hazelnut, coconut, cinnamon and vanilla wafer flavors.

It’s funny because though I received the package and even further information on the company, it still did not click to me that these were like the wafers I had grown to love as a child until I opened the box and took my first bite.  Bohemian Spa Wafers are a long trek away from the Stauffer’s Strawberry Crème Wafers I had grown up on.  Light and flavorful without the grainy sugar rubbing against your molars which was typical of my old childhood treat, Bohemian Spa Wafers has given the wafer a drastic face lift.  I began munching on the Coconut flavor and a light bulb went off: these would make great snacks for my next get together.  Though they have that same sugar wafer flavor, they are the adult version of the old Stauffer’s suited for road trips with the family versus dinner parties with crab stuffed mushrooms.

Nostalgic and in a bit of a sugar haze, I began thinking of other ways to use these wafers.  Dessert toppers or beds for an added effect and a light snack alongside my morning coffee immediately came to mind.  For now, I’ll simply stick to the old school way: watching my favorite show while munching on my favorite snack.
