Pirouline made its debut in 1984. A hollow rolled European style wafer with a trademark helical swirl, it was lined with chocolate.[1]

In 1987, the biscuit was filled with a chocolate hazelnut creme filling. Over the years, there have been many flavors of creme - French vanilla, strawberry, pumpkin spice, dulce de leche, and lemon.

The most popular Pirouline is a rolled toasted wafer lined with dark chocolate. The other variety, called "Creme de Pirouline," has the rolled wafer lined with a cream filling rather than chocolate (which comes in chocolate hazelnut, French vanilla, and double chocolate varieties).

Originally sold in a 14 oz tin, the chocolate lined biscuits are always sold in boxes, while the cream-filled are sold in cans.[4]
