Snack Review: Lotte Kancho Love Biscuits - Hazelnut

I have reviewed several filled cooking snacks before but I never had one with a hazelnut filling, so I was curious to try these when I found a package on Tofu Cute.

This was a type of filled biscuits that I haven't had before. Not only flavor wise but also the brand is new to me. These cookies are manufactured by Lotte, the same company that is also behind the Koala biscuits that I bought several times before. This biscuits aren't much like the Koala type though. Koala's have a thinner biscuit and more filling while these are more similar to the Hello Panda biscuits from Meiji. They have a thicker layer of biscuit and less filling.

The smell of this snack is subtle and not as overwhelming as some of these snacks can be. I liked the taste of the filling a lot. It was like eating a biscuit filled with Nutella. Maybe a little less creamier, but taste wise quite close. Unfortunately the biscuit itself tasted a bit stale. It wasn't as crispy as I am used to and that was a bit of a downer. I checked the package on any holes, but there weren't any, so that can't be the reason. That is a bit of a pity really, because otherwise hazelnut is surely a flavor I enjoyed. These biscuits can be bought for 0,99 pounds on Tofu Cute.


  1. Last week I took my daughter out for her first bento box lunch. really, bento tray. She loves the idea . I then told her about a new store in town that sells bento lunch boxes. She now wants one.


    I am looking forward to visiting the shop with her and picking out something for each of us. Wouldn't have happened if I hadn't been reading you blog.

  2. Thank you so much for your sweet comment :)

    I hope you will have a lot of fun making bento together and make sure you show the results :)
