Hilton Head Benne Wafers are a unique sesame treat. They are like a cracker and cookie and a wafer combined. The Benne Wafer is one of the Lowcountry's most well known and loved local treats. It is a sweet, salty and nutty flavored crisp wafer cookie. Our Hilton Head Benne Wafers are adapted from old, traditional recipes and produced in a Charleston bakery for an authentic flavor for a history you can taste. These crisp sesame cookies are native to the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Sesame, a plant with a long history of cultivation, was probably first grown in Africa; West Africans, called sesame "benne" and legend had it that eating sesame seeds brought good luck! This 3.5 oz bag of benne wafers is full of southern goodness and good luck. Sounds like a winner for any gift basket. Make sure you add at least one bag when building your custom gift basket today!
