“ Brand: Fudges / Type: Biscuit „
These are not the cheapest things around but when you try them you can tell why they cost more than something like 'Cheddars', they are definitely of higher quality and I think they are absolutely scrummy!
The only place I have seen them for sale is in Booths, which is a shop I don't go into often due to it being quite pricey, but it is the place to find lesser known more luxurious items like these. The last time I went in I found these wafers were now on sale for £2.99 (for a 100g packet) which shocked me somewhat but as I already knew how lovely they were it didn't deter me from buying them.
I would probably refer to them as a cracker or a biscuit as I imagine a wafer to be like the type of thing you would put in your ice cream, but I guess they are trying to portray the light texture of the product.
They are quite a crumbly and very breakable wafer so be careful not to bash the box around too much on the way home! Whilst light they are really nice and crunchy. They contain 17% cheddar cheese, which probably explains their lovely rich flavour which tastes of a true cheese taste - rather than other types of cheese cracker biscuits which can have a slightly false taste - and you can actually see bits of cheese in them.
The packet suggests you eat them along with a nice glass of wine, which I'm sure would be lovely, and you could also enjoy them with a bit of cheese but to be honest once I open the packet in my house they aren't around long enough to think about what you might want to have with them!
They did used to sell another version of them which was cheddar cheese and sundried tomato, which were absolutely blissful, but I no longer seem to be able to find these :( If you do come across them however I would strongly recommend them.
Fudges chedder wafers are small thin round shaped cheesy biscuits, they are very tasty and can get very addictive once you start eating them, it's hard to stop. The ingredients used to make them, like the cheese and the cream, obviously mean that they wouldn't be exactly the healthiest snack, however they are the type of food you wouldn't have a lot of. They are in between biscuits and crisps because they're more like biscuits because of the ingredients but they remind me of crisps because the biscuits are so thin like crisps. They are very cheesy and creamy but they taste different to other cheesy biscuits I have tried which I think is because of the type of ingredients used to make them. The biscuits come in nice fairly small sized boxes which are good for recycling, they contain 100g.
The company that makes these cheese wafers is called Fudges; they were founded in 1926 originally as a bakery in Dorset for bread and cakes. However, in 1990, they started producing products for supermarkets and other companies including Waitrose, Tesco's, Morrison's and Sainsbury's.
I would definitely recommend them for using them for party food because they would be good as quick nibbles along with the crisps and nuts and I would also recommend them to cheese lovers as they are very cheesy.
