Growing up, I always was fed wafers as well as other cookies. It wasn't until recently that I grabbed some of these at my local coffee shop. While lemon is not what I would normally munch on with a bitter coffee, they were delicious. I've tried the other flavors since, and I think they are so delicious. They taste like any other wafer, but the filling inside is so flavorful. Definitely not a mouthful of cardboard!
