The Wafer roll is a snack made of wafers and sometimes filled with cream. It tastes very sweet and crispy. With rich flavor, it goes down well with both kids and adults. Wafer rolls are made from basic cookie ingredients of flour, egg whites, sugar, and butter. Its name comes from its appearance and method of making, which rolls thin dough into a hollow cone.

However, wafer roll is known by different names in different places. Take our country as an example, it is called the egg roll in China. In England, it is known as wafer roll while it is known as Barquillo in Spain and the Philippines. As for the origin of the wafer roll, it is more controversial between Asia and Spain to be the first place to invent this snack. 

In China, the invention of egg rolls is not for deliciousness, but to fill the stomach. In the old days, people who dig wild vegetables and grass to eat in order to fill their stomachs are everywhere, but these things are very unpalatable, in order to fill their stomachs, so So I came up with a good way to cook eggs, wild vegetables, and grass together, but eggs are not common, so I dried the boiled eggs, wild vegetables, and grass, rolled them into shapes, and saved them to eat slowly. This formed the ancestor of the egg roll.

In Spain, Barquillo is a kind of traditional street snack sold by roadside vendors known as barquilleros that carry a characteristic red roulette tin. It’s said that Barquillos were traditionally sold during festive events. The red roulette tin, known as Ruleta de barquillero, has a roulette spinner on the top. There is a small game called El Clavo when buying barquilleros. If there are several participants, the one who comes up with the lowest number pays all the wafers. If there's only one, pay a small fee and win a wafer in each roll unless it lands in the square with a nail, everything gained there will be lost, the nail is one of the four screws that hold the roulette wheel. Nowadays, wafer rolls are most popular in Asia.
