World of Snacks is racing across the globe in search of inventory to eventually offer for purchase in our international snack store set to launch early next year. So far we have explored sweet and salty treats from a total of 27 different countries. For this international snack review we find ourselves back in Germany, a country I was lucky enough to explore as teenager.
Our snack under review today is produced by an Italian confectionary company called Ferrero. This snack producer has long standing roots as a multinational company. In fact Ferrero was the first company in Italy after World War II to become an international group. Today the company is still family owned and produces a range of loved snacks including Ferrero Rocher, Nutella, and one of my personal favorites- Kinder!
Hanuta, which is an acronymic for Haselnusstafel, or German for Hazelnut Bar is delightful treat. The snack is comprised of two toasted wheat flour wafers filled with a generous portion of sweet chocolate and chopped hazelnuts. The wafers are firm and crunchy. The wheat flour make up did produce an extra toasty hint and at first seemed overcooked. The creamy sweet chocolate is just right and the nuts are subtle but add to the overall presentation. Myself and our taste testers all agreed that if this snack was offered in the US that we would opt to buy it in the check out line of the grocery store.
Well all of our US followers know the Ferrero Hanuta is not offered for sale in the US, but will World of Snacks change that? Yes! At this time we do plan to offer the Hanuta as a part of our German snack selection when we launch our online snack store early next year. If you are interested in this snack or would like to know when our snack shop launches be sure to leave your details to the right. Keep on snacking!
