The Original Carlsbad Oblaten Dessert Wafers


Have any of you ever tried The Original Carlsbad Oblaten before? When I was a little girl, my maternal grandmother would hold tea parties with all of her lady friends and during their afternoon teas, she would serve Oblaten. I would often sneak into the room and grab a handful of Oblaten when Grandma wasn't looking and over the years, those fond memories have had me longing for more!

Well today, I get to talk to all of my foodie blog readers about The Original Carlsbad Oblaten which is rich in history and tradition. Back in 1787, the Oblaten was discovered and for over two centuries now, it is a favorite among the millions who love and enjoy it.

If you are not familiar with The Original Carlsbad Oblaten, it is a delicately crisp dessert wafer that comes in a wide variety of delicious flavors. They are made in small batches and they only use high-quality ingredients to make them.They are made with a combination of wheat flour, crushed almonds, whole milk, powdered sugar, egg yolks, unsalted butter, natural flavors... and nothing more! No preservatives are ever used and they will stay fresh for months!

Flavors Available:

* The Original Vanilla Almond
* The Original with Caramel
* The Original with Lemon
* The Original with Cinnamon
* The Original with Chocolate
* The Original with Strawberry
* The Original with Green Tea


For the Review, I received several packages of these delicious dessert wafers in all of the flavors stated above. Some come nicely packaged in metal tins and others come packaged in gift boxes. (hint: they make the perfect gift!). I decided to immediately dig in to the Strawberry and the Caramel flavors with my family in-tow and within a few hours, we had demolished two entire packages! We had some with our hot cocoa and we had some later that day with our vanilla ice cream.

The very next day I went into the assisted living center to visit with my 87 year old aunt. I decided to take several packages into the center with me, so that I could share them with her and all of her lady friends who live there. I prepared some hot tea, coffee and some hot cocoa and placed all of the different flavors of Oblaten onto a serving tray for the ladies. They all were really surprised to see Oblaten as many of them haven't seen it or tasted it in years! They have all told me about their fond memories of enjoying Oblaten in their younger years and how they had missed it. Of course, some things have changed over the years & they were pleasantly surprised to see all of the delicious flavors that Oblaten now comes in!

I spent about 90 minutes with these ladies and they had a great time chatting with one another and tasting all of the Oblaten that I had taken into the center with me. Matter of fact, they are looking forward to me visiting again and have already put in their request for me to bring in more! hahaha!

Out of all of the flavors that I got to review, my top 3 favorites were: Strawberry, Caramel and the Lemon, although they were all delicious, those were/are my top three choices! My auntie really loved the Lemon and the Chocolate Oblaten and told me that those two were her favorites. I really enjoyed spending time with the ladies and I have to thank the company for providing us with all of the delicious snacks for our visit! Yeah!

I didn't realize that these could be ordered in tin refills?! I have tins...old tins, but they are still oblaten tins that I brought back from when I lived in Germany for 8 years... Oblaten was one of the most requested things for me to send home..and oddly enough, one of the cheapest things to buy. I can remember going to Czech and buying boxes of them there for the equivalent of $.25 a box, crazy huh?! (this was in the mid 90's...lol)
