Bahlsen - First Class [@NLi10]

Yum - Bahlsen make some of the nicest euro chocolate on the market - with Choco Leibniz being a personal favourite (dark chocolate of course).  When I spotted these in the supermarket (I can't remember which) I knew they had to be mine.  I took them to work and squirrelled them away for a time when they would be most needed.  That day was this Friday - so here they are!

First class is a confusing little beast as it isn't actually a biscuit - it's a euro wafer snack, but in a box instead of a wrapper.  I've reviewed lots of lovely wafers before - the best ones tend to be from the Polish grocery stores - but never one as posh as these.

You only get twelve in a box and a portion really has to be two of them so that means that you'll get to please 6 people with one box (or one person six times).

Like with other Bahlsen snacks the chocolate tantalisingly overhangs the rest of the snack, meaning it can be eaten in a variety of ways.  The praline is sweet and nutty and hides in the centre between the two main ingredients, but is a full layer unto itself.

The result is as expected - an explosion of flavour and texture that causes you to devour it all and move on to the second without hesitation.  Not cheap enough to have on a daily basis, but not expensive enough to be a one off these will be a nice thing to have as a treat and to brighten up grey Fridays. Truly deserving of the name First Class.

I've had (and enjoyed) the dark version of First Class and they cemented my view that Bahlsen are the best non-British biscuit maker around!
