Five layers of crispy Manner wafers, generously filled with exquisite hazelnut and cocoa cream are responsible for the wonderful taste. However, it is not only the delicate wafers and the high hazelnut content of 12% in the cream and the special roasting of the cocoa beans which make the Manner wafers to a confectionery classic from Austria.
The size and shape:
Since its invention in 1898, the Manner wafer has been a bite-sized 49 x 17 x 17 millimetres.
Since 1960 Manner wafers have been sold in the pink pack with the red tear strip. The air-tight double aluminium foil makes Manner wafers the ideal snack - whether hot or cold, the handy size with the ten precut wafers are perfect to share, they don't melt and are delicious!
