Disadvantages: seasonal product, hard to find in UK
One of my rare but very favourite treat is Ferrero's Raffaello. I have to admit that I haven't seen in UK since I am here but abroad you can buy it in large supermarkets for about 2 pounds. I think it is a seasonal product and you can find it just before Christmas. I read that large Co-op shops hold them but I really haven't seen it yet.
Raffaello are white coconut covered balls wrapped individually and put into a cardboard box which has two windows so you can see its content. The box weights 200 g and there are 20 Raffaellos in it. They look very appetizing. When you open the transparent packaging of a Raffaello you can feel its sweet coconut scent. It is about 3 cm in diameter so you can put it into your mouth easily. If you decide to bite it in half then you will see the thin wafer shell below the coconut coating then the white cream and the almond sitting in the middle of it. Yummy.
The ingredients of this treat are as follows: Vegetable Oils (Modified Palm, Sunflower and Safflower Oils), Dry Coconut and Dry Coconut Extract, Sugar, Skim Milk Powder, Almond, Wheat Flour, Whey (from Milk), Maltodextrin, Sodium Caseinate (from Milk), Artificial Flavour, Soy Lecithin (an Emulsifier), Rye Flour, Salt, Vanillin (an Artificial Flavour), Sodium Bicarbonate (a Leavening Agent).
The energy content of a single Raffaello is 60 kcal. It contains 4 g of fat, 3 g of sugars and 1 g of protein.
I don't understand why they supermarkets cannot store it. It is really of premium quality and available at a reasonable price. Raffaello are made by Ferrero SpA which is an Italian chocolate and confectionery manufacturer. Its products are available worldwide. They produce for example Kinder Surprise (eggs) Kinder Bars, TicTac, Ferrero Rocher, Pocket Coffee, Mon Chéri, Kinder Happy Hyppo and Nutella.

I think this Raffaello is a premium product which is made for ladies according to the advertisement but as I found men like it as well. They are perfectly sweet and have delicious coconut taste with a little almond as well. The coconut actually dominates it. The cream makes it melt in your mouse. It is a very delicious treat that makes you break your diet. It is very difficult to resist to them as they are very appetizing. The packaging makes them even more inviting. Well done Ferrero!
