Folie Waffle "Cocoa Pleasure"


This treat has two classic flavours that when put together are generally fantastic. Chocolate icing and waffles are a pretty sure fire win in my book. They’re classic flavour combinations that always make me smile. I really can't see how you could go wrong.

Well temp fate like that, and disappointment you shall receive. It's not that this treat was horrible by any means, it was OK. I just thought that with the winning combination of waffles and chocolate icing it was going to be spectacular. There really is no single big problem with this treat either, simply a series of small problems that wear it down. While it did deliver what it promised, it just failed at delivering the greatness you might expect.

The first problem is that the waffle is way too floppy and weak to hold up to just about anything. I like a slight crispness to my waffles, but this one is just a soggy mess. The chocolate icing is probably the best part of this treat, however with the floppy and tasteless waffles it really just overpowers everything. The chocolate might improve with a bit of a nutty flavour as well.

I'm thinking the best way to fix this treat is to slap some ice cream into the middle of this treat. It would excuse the floppiness of the waffle and kill the overpowering chocolate icing. The thing is, a basic chocolate ice waffle should work well on its own.
