OFFICIAL SNACK REPORT
Sanctioned By WASAW Snack Committee

Location: An Italian co-worker's lunch
OFFICIAL NAME OF SNACK:
DESCRIPTION OF SNACK:
Two thin sponge cakes cemented together with a thin layer of delicious vanilla creme filling. Topped off with swirly frosting that is too thin to taste. (Think the top white part of Candy corn.)
SSI RATING (SNACK SATISFACTION INDEX - 1-10): 6.5
Sweet, nice ratio of cake to filling (which, for me, means: not too much creme to distract me from the delicious sponge cake). Perfect size for a snack cake, as well.
I'm not sure what it is, but to me, Italian pastries often have this butterscotch aftertaste. Actually, it could be a hazelnut aftertaste, I'm not sure. There's just something that hangs on your tongue a little too long. And I'm sure it's done on purpose and the Italians love it. I, of course, am making an assumption by saying that, but it's the sort of acquired aftertaste that would be enjoyed over time. Just not by me.

Very, very European. Pastel color, a photo of actual snack that's very true to what the actual snack looks like inside (unlike the American wrapper that makes the snack look twice as big and delicious as it really is...).
DO I RECOMMEND YOU TRY THIS YOURSELF? (YES/NO - EXPLAIN):
Yes, but it's not worth the airfare to Italy to try it.

HOW CAN THE PRODUCT BE IMPROVED:
Hey, I'm not going to tell another nation's snack company what to do. But, uh, maybe cut back on that hazelnut aftertaste.
