I really miss these, espeically when I'm drinking a gleass of milk. When I was young, they came in a long box. They disappeared for a few years, but resurfaced in a mini-box. Now they're gone, and I'm afraid it's for good. Anybody know sumthin'?

    THEY WERE CALLED COCOA SNAPS. CAME IN BIG BAG(SOME SHADE OF PINK) LOOKED SIMILAR TO NILLA WAFERS AND GINGER SNAPS(THE COOKIE AND THE BAG) I THINK IT WAS NABISCO.
    THE CHOCOLATE TEDDY GRAHAMS taste exactly the same, just smaller in size.

      My mother was an immigrant and the only one of her friends who knew English so she would take her friends to their clinic appointments and get a box of Chocolate snaps for my sister and I so we would be "good" while she interpreted for the friends. I can still taste them.

      I am not sure exactly what Chocolate Snaps are, but these ShaSha Cocoa Snaps sound very similar to what you describe. I get them at Wegmans, and at the store they come in a round plastic tub. They are sold in the baked goods aisle. They are thin and kind of hard. Here is a link to the website: http://www.shashabread.com/product/35...
      They also come in ginger snaps and lemon snaps, although I have not had either of those.

        Chocolate Snaps fans rejoice! I found Chocolate Snaps in a Nabisco Classics bag called "Cookie Carnival." It contains Chocolate Snaps, Mini Chocolate Chip cookies and Iced Animal Crackers. The Chocolate Snaps don't seem as hard as I remembered (which is why they were an essential companion for milk,) but the flavor is still there. My only other recommendation is Stauffer's Chocolate Animal Crackers. The flavor is similar.

          Man, I have been trying to find Choco Snaps myself. I have been dreaming about them and of course can taste them in my mouth now. I grew up in NYC and I could get them all the time. Where do we go get them now? Do they even exist anymore? If you find them Hook a girl up, puhleaaaase

            the disappearance of Chocolate Snaps made me very sad as well, sigh...happiness was contained in that little tiny box, with it's kitty like face draw on the cookie...I've heard Nabisco has a similar product called "Chocolate Wafers" or "Famous Chocolate Wafer" but I've yet to see or try them...good luck!

              Never had the Snaps, but I love the Nabisco chocolate wafers. They’re kind of tricky to find sometimes. Most stores seem to stock them near the ice cream, (with the cones...), rather then the cookie aisle. Hope they can help fill your Snaps craving...
