After recently reviewing the Loacker Snack Pack Wafers I was sort of pleasantly surprised to read about another new Loacker product called "Rose Of The Dolomites". At this point any and all Loacker products interest me and I look forward to trying them, this was no exception.

Being that Loacker's Rose Of The Dolomites are more of a Chocolate Bon-Bon than a wafer it makes perfect sense that they would début them now; just in time for Rosh Hashanah. So many people will be looking for a small gift to bring along to the holiday meal as a way to wish their host a Happy Sweet New Year.
I thought the milk-chocolate coated roses were luxurious and tasty. They're filled with a wonderfully creamy hazelnut filling that has a generous amount of roasted hazelnut bits mixed in. I especially liked the very thin wafer at the bottom of the rose which added just a touch of crispiness. It’s a wonderful extra texture that I really enjoyed.
This delicate and elegant chocolate hazelnut treat absolutely lived up to the quality that Loacker is known for.
A few days after I tasted the milk-chocolate coated roses I found out that they are also available in a 60% cocoa solids dark-chocolate coating version. Aside from the dark-chocolate coating everything else about these bon-bons are exactly the same as the original. Given that I much prefer dark-chocolate to milk-chocolate I was thrilled to try them as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed the rich, deep, quality dark-chocolate coating on these Loacker Rose Of The Dolomites treats. I liked the stark contrast between the richer dark-chocolate and the lighter hazelnut cream filling. Again the roasted hazelnuts and thin wafer added the perfect amount of texture. For me the dark-chocolate coating took this bon-bon to the next level.
Loacker's Rose Of The Dolomites are all natural. They have no artificial food coloring, no trans fats and no preservatives.
Bottom Line: Whether you're looking for chocolates or flowers to take along as a small hostess gift this coming Rosh Hashanah, you kind of get the best of both options with either of these Loacker Rose Of The Dolomites bon-bons, since they are actually a pretty flower and a delicious chocolate treat all in one :)
