When it comes to sweet things I have rather a sweet tooth to be honest! Up until recently I would have described myself as more of a savoury fan but then as I've gotten older I stuff myself with all things unhealthy and have a taste for any kind of choccy dessert or biscuit which is what brought me onto the purchase of these in the first place.
I hadn't seen them before but at 35p (In Tesco) I couldn't resist grabbing a packet for me and my mate to pig out on one night whilst watching mindless soaps and drinking far too many coffees!
The snowballs comes in a clear plastic tray and are covered by a light blue and see-through cheap looking but easy to tear open covering. On the front I am told that they are Fullers 5 Snowballs 'Mallow with a chocolate flavoured coating, covered in coconut ' and the weight is stated (75g) and there are pictures of snowballs on there. On the back of the packet other information listed includes ingredients and allergy advice being given along with a full nutritional chart being shown, storage details and the best before date are displayed and contact details for Lees Of Scotland (the manufacturer of the product are also stated. Like I have just said though the packaging does look rather economy but to be fair to it, it does serve it's purpose and it is informative enough!
The Snowballs Themselves:
Well you get 5 in a packet and all of them look the same really. Round in shape and squidgy with a thin layer of crispy light brown milk chocolate all over them and lots of white desiccated coconut evenly coated all over them. What they are of course is a white mallow that is slightly rubbery but melts in the mouth with a nice sweet chocolate taste to them and they are a bit crunchy due to the coconut! Messy to eat? Sure they are.... the coconut flakes off everywhere but both me and my mate gave a big thumbs up to these and think they are great for a more economy cake type thing. Nice size and they taste nice without being too sweet and the textures all fit well together and they certainly are not sickly! A great snacky food and once opened we found them to stay fresh for bout 3 days! Very nice and recommended from us pair of piggy's big time!
