A big thank you to @Banjo_Chocolate for sending me a Tortina biscuit and introducing me to this fabulous range. After tasting one, I had to go out and buy a whole pack - they are so delicious! Loacker is an Italian brand with a fantastic heritage, and have been producing wafer biscuits since 1925. These Tortina biscuits come in two flavours; Original Milk Chocolate and this Dark-Noir, which are both available at Waitrose.
Inside the elegant box there are six individually wrapped biscuits. Each Tortina has a fantastic appearance - it's simple yet extremely stylish.
They are large circular biscuits, with a lovely dark glossy coating that is printed with the Loacker Tortina logo.
Inside is a delicious hazelnut praline type cream between two very thin layers of wafer, covered in an intense dark chocolate. The combination is completely delicious. The wafer is crispy and has a hint of vanilla. The fine dark chocolate is full flavoured and made with 60% cocoa solids. Both the wafer and the outer chocolate melt away quite quickly, leaving the smooth hazelnut flavour to linger. I now can't wait to try the milk chocolate version of these, given how much I loved this dark chocolate version. They're definitely a must try for anyone who loves hazelnut and chocolate combined (surely that's everyone?).
Thank you to again to @Banjo-Chocolate for sending me one of these to try! Please be sure to check out and support the Facebook Page to Bring Back Banjo Chocolate!
