It seems that "cubed" might be a trend, of sorts, over at Elite right now. After they gave us the Must Cubed Gum (which I reviewed here) they now present Mini Cubed Wafers.
There are 2 Mini Cubed Wafers to choose from; vanilla wafers with chocolate filling and vanilla wafer with nut filling.
As this photo on Artzeinu's blog points out, wafers are very popular here in Israel. I'm not sure we really needed another wafer on the (already full) shelf.
As a whole I find the filling in most of Elite wafers to be very grainy and therefore I do not particularly care for them, I much prefer Loacker's wafers. I was still curious to taste these new mini cubed Elite wafers.
The fillings were not as grainy as Elite's other wafers but it was far from the quality and taste of the Loacker wafers. I didn’t really enjoy either of these new mini cubed wafers; neither the chocolate nor the nut fillings were rich or interesting.
Elite's Mini Cubed Wafers have no trans-fats, no preservatives and no food coloring added, but to me they still had a waxy after-taste.

I don’t want anyone to "judge a book by its cover" and buy this wafer because of the bag, in my opinion the product inside was not good enough to justify that. At times packaging can affect whether I repurchase a product or not but only when the product inside is worth it.
Bottom Line: The Mini Cubed Elite Wafer was not as bad as other Elite wafers and the packaging was impressive but for me Loacker's Quadratini Dark Chocolate Wafer wins hands down.
