Review of Homekist Creme Wafers

A couple weeks ago, I started taking my lunch with me to work instead of driving home (to allow me time to go to the gym). As a result of this, part of our grocery shopping budget is spent on items that I can take with me, both for lunch time and as a mid-afternoon snack.

When we were out grocery shopping this past weekend, I came across Homekist Creme Wafers at Wal-mart . These looked interesting because they were something I knew my oldest daughter (who takes lunches with her to school) would like too. And, since they were only 98 cents per pack, I ended up buying two packages of them, one in vanilla flavor and one in chocolate.

I like this type of cookie . But, I have also discovered there are significant differences between the brands. This is especially true of cheaper brands like this one, which usually don’t seem to be as sweet. And, as a result of that, I was a bit concerned I was giving up some quality when I saved money on these. However, that proved not to be the case.

First of all, when it came to overall flavor, I was very impressed with these. They were as good as some of the more expensive brands that are out there. In fact, if I were to mix some of these in a bowl with the more expensive brands, I don’t think you could tell the difference. This is especially impressive when you realize that, for 98 cents, I got 27 wafers. I’m lucky to get 12-15 in the more expensive packages.

Another thing I found I liked about these was they tasted very fresh. I have purchased other bargain brands that seemed to be very stale the minute I opened the package.

My only complaint about this product would be the packages themselves. You have to rip them to open them and there’s no real way to close them back up tightly so the cookies don’t get stale overnight. I had to put the unused wafers (and there were a lot of them) in sandwich bags to prevent this.

Overall though, I thought this was a good purchase. I got a lot of wafers for less than $1 and they offered a surprisingly high amount of quality. If you happen to see these, I recommend buying a package of them.
