Taste test: vanilla wafers

Published Apr. 20, 2018

When it comes to cookies, our judges are all in. When it comes to vanilla wafers, most of them admitted to reaching for the familiar Nilla Wafers in the bright yellow box. Surprisingly, they liked the well-known brand least of the seven wafers sampled in our recent tasting. All of the cookies fared well, but panelists found a few wafers they will purchase in the future for a snack, a homemade pie crust or a dessert parfait, among other treats.
