Maltesers are a favorite of mine. I have never been a huge chocolate fan, never have been really, but i have always liked these. I love the crisp inside of these and the thin layer of chocolate on the outside makes them so much better than being filled with chocolate.
Maltesers, made by Mars, were originally known as 'Energy Balls', which i think sounds a little odd really. They were first made in 1936, but were first sold a year later. Maltesers were originally aimed as a slimming aid for women, which i suppose makes sense in way, simply because it would stop them eating chocolates with full fat. Maltesers did claim that the honey comb centre in their chocolate was in fact seven times less fattening than standard chocolate, therefore helping in weight loss. In my opinion if you are supposed to be losing weight, you would not want to be eating much chocolate anyway!
The ingredients of this product change slightly, depending where they are made, which is not a common practice for most products. There are three different versions, which are too long too list, but the countries using these methods are:
New Zealand and Australia
Maltesers are available in a huge range of sizes, there are the normal bags available, as well as snack size bags and even boxes. I find that the boxes make a really good gift. It is quite common in our family for at least one person to be given a box of maltesers or two from me.
Overall, i would recommend this product. They are very tasty, and much less fattening than most chocolates! Depending on the size of the box/packet, they cost anyway between £0.75-£10
I'm not a huge chocolate fan I only usually like galaxy and certain types of diary milk. I'ts been a while since I've hade maltesers but I was recently going to the cinema with friends and they wanted some chocolate so I bought a few packs of maltesers in sainsburys because it was much cheaper than buying them at the cinema. Maltesers are suitable for vegetarians a and is chocolate coated crisp with honeycomb centres. I don't have maltesers on a regular basis but once in a while I love the crunchy taste in the inside and smooth chocolate on the outside. I have to be careful at times because maltesers can become very addicted and thats not got for me.Compared to other chocolate packs such as chocolate buttons and revels chocolate, I prefer maltesers there also are less fewer calories which is good for those who want to watch their calories intake.
Maltesers are a brand of Chocolate covered malt balls loved by the public. Created by the Brand Mars, they can come in a small packet containing 20-30 maltesers. You can also get them in bigger family packets to share either at home in front of the TV, at the cinema or just as a family treat.
Personally I really enjoy a Malteser every now and again however I feel for the price of the small packets they are not usually worth it, I tend to go for the family pack and eat it over a few days. It would also be a big purchase for me at the cinema and always goes down well between me and my friends.
The Iconic red packaging with the actual Maltesers allows potential purchasers to buy the product, the packaging does catch your eye within a shop and the show of the actual Maltesers shows the buyer what they would be eating cause the likeliness of a purchase.
I would recommend to anyone I meet
I'm eating these as I type. The malteaser chocolate is famous worldwide. It's available in different size packets there also mini fun size packs part of a multi pack. They are also part of selection boxes such as celebrations chocolates in the UK. The chocolate itself is very tasty. It has a very rich texture and feel. When entering the mouth the chocolate I'm midfield is felt by your senses. If you let the chocolate melt on your tongue you can feel the inside of the chocolate slowly dissolving. This is because the centre of the chocolate inside has holes. The chocolate is very tasty and is probably one of the best I have ever tasted. The prices vary depending on the size of the packet/bag. In the UK they are available in nearly all food stores nationally or any convenience store. The wrapper itself is very appealing they also make chocolate eggs for easter and giant crackers for Christmas but u haven't seen any crackers this year.
Oh yum, I love it when it's time to review chocolate again!
I picked these up in my local newsagents earlier today for 70p which is the going kind of rate for a chocolate bar. I didn't fancy a bar today though, I wanted something in pieces that I could pick at instead of having to bite through a whole bar.
Maltesers come in a red cellophane bag and have white writing on so they are quite distinctive on the shelf with the other chocolates and sweets.
The bag is easy enough to tear open although I always cut the top off with scissors as I hate the idea of tearing the bag open and them all falling over the floor! As they are round they would roll away and you wouldn't see them again!
Each Malteser is a light but hard honeycomb ball which is coated in milk Mars chocolate. They are small enough to pop into your mouth (actually you can put 3 or 4 in in one go!) but big enough that you can bite them in half if you wish. Each one is just over a cm across and they are round. This does unfortunately mean that if one rolls out of the bag you might lose it!!
They are crispy and sweet and extremely moreish! As they come in a nice little bag they are perfect for sharing in front of the tv which is great. The bag is not resealable which may be a problem for some, but not me as I can happily wolf the lot down in one go as they are so delicious. They are also very nice I find if you dip them in a cup of hot tea before popping them in your mouth as the chocolate melts off the honeycomb a little. Yummy
They are also great to just let them melt in your mouth as the honeycomb really does melt!!
I was cleaning one of my cupboard in my kitchen recently and at the back of the cupboard I spotted this box of Maltesers I had bought a while ago. My face lit up when I set eyes on it and I couldn't resist opening it immediately to have a good old munch. I had bought them to share with my little grandchildren but had totally forgotten I had bought them so it was a nice surprise when I spotted them.
I am reviewing a box of Maltesers. The box has the name very clearly on the front and can be easily spotted on a shelf. The box has a transparent plastic wrapper covering the box and the box has an opening via a perforated line which can be easily popped open. The smell from the box is really apparent and the usual chocolate smell.
The Maltezers as we all know are circular balls and a honeycomb centre which melts in the mouth when eating them. The centre is delicious and not too sweet but is a little chewy but a soft texture so the little ones can easily chew them one at a time. I sometimes place more than one in my mouth at a time because it is just habit, I have done this for many years as I guess lots of people do and I am not alone with this habit. Each ball is covered in a thick milk chocolate. The chocolate and the centre taste delicious and work really well together for a really nice taste which I do find quite moreish and once I eat a couple I simply cannot resist eating more from the box.
They don't have a bland taste at all and just have a delicious, pleasant taste. I like to sometimes just place one in my mouth and let it melt slowly, eating them this way allows the flavour to melt slowly so that you can savour the flavour a little more.
I have eaten them many times in the past when I have been having baking days with my little grandchildren. We have baked a sponge cake or fairy cakes and place some of the balls over the top of the cakes. The sponge and these Maltesers really taste delicious together and both the foods work well eaten in this way. Is a lot of fun for my grandchildren to place the balls around the cake and have a fun time experimenting topping the cakes.
I also place a box or 2 in a bowl for my parties at Christmas time or a dinner party I may be holding at my home so that my guests can simple help themselves to some Maltesers as and when they fancy a sweet. Some of my guests have eaten a few before sitting down to a meal or when they have arrived at my home and have felt hungry and maybe not eaten for a while and just want a sweet to keep them going until they finally eat. A nice sweet for sharing.
I like the box of Maltesers because I like to sometimes tease my grandchildren when I go into my cupboard and then shake the box and they can hear me shaking it and look at me to see what I am shaking and realise I have a little treat for them to eat. They love Maltesers and can easily chew and swallow them but not eating more than one at a time in their mouth when they eat them in the same way I do quite often.
I do find these sweets very addictive and I did eat the whole box in a couple of days of opening them because I kept going back to the box to eat a couple of more. I did buy another 2 boxes this morning while shopping in Tesco.
For a 120g box they are currently priced at £2 for 2 boxes from Tesco on special offer and I saved a little money because they are usually priced at £1.50 but I have often bought them on offer for £1 for a single box. This is a super price and well worth the money in my opinion. The quality is super too.
I recommend them and I am sure everyone has tasted and eaten Maltesers at some point in life and if you haven't you have missed out on a delicious treat.
I will keep on buying them in the future because I love them and if they ever are discontinued I will go crazy.
I give them 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
Maltesers are easily one of my favourite sweets. I just love the chocolate coated balls of crunchy maltiness and can easily munch my way through a small 120g box which I usually buy from my local poundshop for (you guessed it) a pound which is a significant saving on the supermarket price.
Each 37g serving of Maltesers contains 187 calories. I dare not do the math to work out how many calories I consume in each box but I am reassured by the fact that I only occasionally buy them as a treat because I just can't resist them once I have opened a box.
I usually find that the Maltesers are not uniform in size and quite often are not perfectly round; I think this is because the layer of delicious Mars chocolate on each malt ball is not as generous as it was a few years ago.
Each Malteser is glossy looking and just begging to be popped in my mouth. Quite often I will nibble the chocolate from the Malteser then enjoy the perfectly crunchy ball of malt. The Malt is pale creamy yellow in colour and full of tiny little holes, it is delightfully crunchy when bitten into or melts perfectly on the tongue. Anyway it is eaten a Malteser does not last long in my hands.
Maltesers come in various size packs there is the individual 37g bag, the 120g small box, the larger 360g box, the 135g sharing pouch, the 88g treat bag as well as various snack packs and multi packs. It is always best to compare pack size versus price to get the best value.
Maltesers have also made a few appearances in white chocolate (usually available at Christmas), dark chocolate (can not find these in the uk anymore), in tubs of Celebrations, Malteaster Bunnies and also the new Teaser bars.
Maltesers have been copied in the past and a lot of supermarkets make there own versions but in my opinion Mars Maltesers are the original and the best.
Thank you for reading.
I have a terrible sweet tooth. I could happily finish off a tub of chocolates or a giant bar in one sitting without sharing. Gone are the days that I could do this regularly without piling on the pounds though, so I do try and limit myself, but I still have cravings all the time for sweets. Being that I've adjusted my eating habits I try and go for a treat that's a bit lower in calories than the others now. It just so happens that one of my favourite sweets is also slightly lower in calories than the others. Maltesers, how I love thee!
===Malty chocolate balls===
Maltesers are made by the huge Mars brand who are responsible for a lot of big names and products (Mars bar being the obvious one, Snickers, Hubba-bubba, skittles, uncle bens and Whiskas being less obvious Mars Brands). Their ethics used to be rather shaky with skirmishes over animal testing and exploitation of West African workers all in there. Thankfully they have since signed up to fair trade agreements and ditched their plans to include animal products in their confectionary.
The pack that these come in has some contact details so if you wish to get in touch to query anything, you can write to them at the following (and incredibly short) address:
Mars Consumer Care
You can even give them a call if that's a better option on 0845 0450042. Even better they have a website (www.mars.co.uk) that you can have a look at!
On the off chance that you've only just arrived on the planet, Maltesers are tasty little honeycomb balls (with malt in them) covered in milk chocolate. In each bag you'll get about 17 balls on average, each with a layer (about 2mm thick) of chocolate carefully coating the honeycomb inside. The honeycomb is very sweet with a slightly salty flavour kicking about in there too and this mixed with the flavour of the chocolate is simply heavenly.
There are a few ways you can eat these. Personally I have a strange habit of popping them in my mouth and trying to get all the chocolate off with my teeth before sucking on the malty middle and feeling it melt on my tongue. It's quite a nice sensation; almost fizzy, but not quite.
You can also just batter in about it and crunch them into oblivion. I don't really like doing that as it gets you through the pack far too quickly and you don't really get to experience the full flavour of them unless you let everything melt together.
===In the Bag===
You can get a few different bags of Maltesers out there. This one in particular is a 37g bag. Individual bags are made out of a flimsy plastic and sealed at both ends. The bag is the only thing that I don't like about them. It's too flimsy and when you're opening them, there's always a risk that the whole thing is going to tear. I've had it happen at least once, sending the entire contents flying. As well as that risk, it just looks a bit messy. You do get bigger sharing bags which are much sturdier, but if you want to control how much you eat, those bags can be a bit too tempting to finish off yourself.
===Lighter than light===
Maltesers are always advertised as a lighter way to enjoy snacking and mostly, it's fairly accurate. One singular bag of Maltesers contains 187 calories per pack which equates to 8 points on the Scottish Slimmers diet that I've been on and up to 9% of your Guideline Daily Allowance. That is pretty much the same as a normal bag of crisps. If you were going on what's more filling, you may wish to go with a bag of crisps on that score. Maltesers, being "light" are not filling at all. They are incredibly more-ish and even a whole pack will not make you feel like you've eaten much at all. If you are simply using them to get a chocolate fix (this is what I do) then you are in slightly better luck! Most other chocolate bars and sweets out there come in with at least 10 points on the diet I'm on (so around 250 calories) and some even nudge closer to 12 points (300 calories). Comparing Maltesers to these snacks makes you see that they are a lighter alternative. Still not as light a snack as you can get, but for the added bonus of chocolate you really will need to sacrifice some calories to the Goddess of food (Mars, but Edesia!)
Sugar wise there are 19.7grammes which is 22% of your GDA so definitely on the high side for that. Fat comes in at 9.3g (13% of your GDA) with Saturates even higher at 5.6g (28% of your GDA). Sodium comes in the lowest at 0.06g being only 2% of your GDA. So, while it's still lighter than some snacks, they aren't exactly health food. Though I'm pretty sure you all realised that anyway.
For those of you with allergies you'll probably want to know what's in them. On the pack it'll tell you that they consist of 73% chocolates with 23% crisp, light honeycomb centres. Obviously someone at Mars maths is a touch out, either that or the extra 4% is something they'd rather not mention. 4% air? 4% hair? Who knows? Ingredients wise, the list is as follows:
Sugar, skimmed milk powder, cocoa butter, glucose syrup, barley malt extract, vegetable fat, cocoa mass, lactose (from milk), whey powder (from milk), milk fat, wheat flour, emulsifiers (soya lecithin, E492), raising agents (monocalcium phosphate, sodium hydrogen carbonate, potassium hydrogen carbonate), glazing agent (pectin), salt, natural vanilla extract
You'll be happy to know that these are still suitable for vegetarians and even suit those who require food to be Halal and/or Kosher. Vegans won't be able to go near them, but that's ok, all the more for me!
These come in at pretty much the same price as most other sweets. In the vending machines at work they are 70p per packet. In tesco's they are at the high end of 60p if you don't buy them on a meal deal where you get three things for £3. You get a lot more for your money the bigger the pack you buy so buying the packs individually is a bit on the pricey side. If you can find a big pack and separate it yourself, or a multi-buy bag then it might work out a little cheaper for you. Overall though, definitely not one of the more expensive snacks or chocolate you can get your hands on.
I really love these things. They taste great and take the edge off of my chocolate cravings easily. They do not fill you up and by no means should they be used in place of real food, but as a sweet treat they are perfect. They are even a little lighter on the calories than most bars of chocolate out there! Huzzah! The only reason I can think of to take a star off is the flimsy packaging. That leaves me giving them a rather good four stars out of five!
Well, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to write a review about one of my favourite chocolate snacks!
Maltesers are basically small balls of malt honeycomb wrapped in delicious milk chocolate. The rounded shape of these bite sized treats is very unique and you couldn't help but know it's a malteser! Even when I come across one in my bag of revels, it's very obvious from its appearance that it is a malteser in there. Pop one in your mouth and the first flavour you get is the creamy milk chocolate followed by the crunch of the honeycomb, that quickly, and rather lovely melts on your tongue, before you reach for another! They are very moreish! The only problem is that they don't last long enough, they are so light you don't even realise how many you have eaten until your hand reaches into an empty packet!
I find the Mars chocolate very creamy and not at all sickly. The texture is very light and airy. As a standard pack contains just 187 calories, they are a nice little treat without being too naughty!
The packaging itself is an eye catching red that grabs your attention when it's crammed between all those chocolate bars on the shelf, with the trademark white maltesers writing in a lovely fluid, bubbly shape. They come in different bags/boxes. Standard 37g bag which contains just 187 calories, grab bags 135g and boxes 120g there are other variants such as the treat size bags but these are the ones I tend to buy.
The maltesers range also continues their range with hot chocolate, teasers bars and special Xmas/Easter chocolates which are all equally as yummy!
Brilliant, on the go snack that the whole family will enjoy.
I am quite a fan of malteasers. As the sweet sunday cinema promotion is currently running, it was a great excuse to buy a few packs of this delicious bags. I pretty much eat them all on my own even though they are the sharing bags. That is how good they are. once these little balls of awesomeness go into your mouth, they almost instantly melt and before you realise you are already reaching for another one in the bag just to relive the experience. Once you start eating one little ball of malteaser, I promise you it won't be your last and before you know it, it is all gone and the packet is finished and you are bought back to harsh reality. These malteasers are seriously some good chocolate.
Maltesers are one of the most popular chocolate brands available and it is a great favourite of mine especially when it comes to snacking. The spherical bubbly shape of the chocolate makes it distinct and instantly noticeable. I also find that this is more fun and pleasant to eat.
These are packaged in distinct and instantly identifiable red packaging which you can easily find and buy from the chocolate section of a supermarket or a newsagent. These come in predominantly bags or boxes. I tend to buy them in sharing bags or boxes because I just find this much more convenient and economical. On offer or promotion, these chocolates are very well priced indeed at typically a pound each, though the normal retail price is higher. These also come in multipacks with many small packets inside but these are of little use to me since there are simply not enough Maltesers per bag! With both the bags and the boxes, they are easy to open and quite convenient to eat from overall.
These Maltesers consist of a malty honeycomb sphere coated with milk chocolate. The combination of the two, actually, is a good match and they taste good together with the smooth chocolate covering and the crunchy malt inside contrasting against each other. I think that the taste is enjoyable and though there is nothing quite so luxurious about it, it is great as a simple snack or just for cheering yourself up after a hard day.
Because of the unique malty taste and spherical shape, Maltesers really stand out from the rest of the chocolate snacking products on the market. I think, for chocolate, these are quite light and airy feeling which makes you feel a little less guilty about snacking on it. The round smooth texture of the outside makes it particularly comfortable to pop into your mouth and you can either crunch straight down the ball or instead wait for the chocolate coating and malt section dissolve in your mouth. Because they are quite light, the little packs of Maltesers are really great for carrying around with you for portability.
And of course, once you have had one, you can't really NOT have another!
There are also many other products in the range frm Maltesers, for example Teasers chocolate bars, ice cream pots and instant hot chocolate powder. I have tried all of these and they all have been very pleasant to experience just like the original product.
Altogether I think that Maltesers are a very good and well rounded product which are very well priced in my opinion. Though these are not exactly a complete luxury product, they are very tasty and sometimes you just want something quite casual, laid back and cheap that you can easily snack on for any occasion. For me, Maltesers tick all the boxes and they are a nice and enjoyable product to consume. For these reasons I would recommend them with 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars.
I love chocolate in most forms, apart from dark chocolate I find that a bit too bitter for my sweet tooth and I adore Maltesers. That combination of creamy milk chocolate covering a melt in the mouth honeycomb centre, what's not to love about that? Maltesers are a quick way for any chocoholic to get their fix without the guilt of eating a whole bar of chocolate, as each 37g packet contains just 187 calories. The picture on the bright red packet shows you just what to expect when you open it with a nice clear picture of the sweets on it both whole and halved.
There are approximately seventeen sweets in a bag which you'll probably find isn't quite enough, I know I don't, as they are rather more-ish. I tend to crunch my way through a bag in record time as I love the way the honeycomb instantly melts in my mouth once it's broken and then you are left with a lovely chocolately taste. I do sometimes just pop one in my mouth and let it melt slowly, that way all the chocolate goes before the honeycomb. I much prefer the crunch method though.
They've been around for years but the taste hasn't changed in decades, and long may they continue to be, although the pack size maybe slightly smaller than it use to be. But then again, all packets seem to be smaller nowadays, or is just me that's got bigger? I'll leave you to decide.
I recently recieved a Funtimes box of Maltesers for my Birthday
The box itself is the usual red colour with malteser images on the front.it was wrapped in cellophane which was so easy to remove.
The box I recieved was360 Grammes in weight and was suitable for vegetarians .
The box has a very clever opening,when the lid is opened ,there is an inner lid with a hole in you can try getting individual maltesers through this hole ,but it is easier to open it carefully ,as there is a unique little circular fastening in the lid,so you can seal the box without the contents spilling all over the place.
Upon opening you are greeted with the fantastic array of fabulous melt in your mouth ,Malteser bubbles.all sitting there ,looking choclatetly ,and glistening,just calling you to eat them,yum,yum.
And when you pop them in your mouth ,well there is no other pleasure as good as a gentle melting Malteser on your tongue.
I was really surprised how many the box contained ,lots for sharing with family or friends.
I cant tell you how much the purchase price was ,as they were given to me as a gift
But I would recommend them to all.
I am not a big lover of chocolate but i really do love maltesers and could sit and eat them all day.The prices of these can vary, and I think cost around £1.60 for a big reasealable bag of them.They are on special offer at morrisons for £1 so I have been getting a few bags at a time.
The bag they come in, is quite a thick foil bag, that has a sticky strip on the bag so that you can reseal the bag to keep them fresh. I also prefer to keep them refrigerated as I do think they taste a lot better the cooler they are, and they can tend to melt pretty quickly also.
The maltesers are honey combed centre that is coated in chocolate. You can just crunch into them to eat them, but I think they taste better if you suck them first. They do just melt in your mouth. When I suck them, the chocolate melts away first and just leaves the honeycomb ball in your mouth, which will just melt away in your mouth.
The taste of these is divine, and I would say they are the best chocolate around. If you have not had these before then you really do not know what you are missing, the honey comb is really nice and not too much chocolate around it. So even if you are not a big fan of chocolate you will still love these. I would recommend anyone to go out and buy these.
I assume most people reading this will no doubt have eaten a malteser at somepoint but, if not, maltesers are essentialy a sweet created by mars many years ago. They consist of a ball of malted honeycomb surrounded by a layer of milk chocolate. I find maltesers the perfect enduldgent snack particularly when I'm watching a film. I don't really know why, I guess because you can just grab a handful and munch you're way through without having to look at, or think about it, kind of like popcorn.
Well the packaging is always essentially the same (with odd additional bits and pieces for promotional packs) but its bright red with pictures of some whole and some halved maltesers flying about all over the place and the word maltesers in white accross the front. It is appealing, but really what I want to mention is that you can buy maltesers in all sort of different sized packs, boxes, tubs, tubes etc. As a result you can find a pack for any occasion; to munch on by yourself, share with a partner, share at a party, to give as a gift, you name it mars have thought of it. Its also worth noting Maltesers are fair trade wooo!
...The Actual Malteser...
Its spherical in shape with a diameter about that of a pound coin. Obviously it's chocolate coloured. What I love about maltesers is not only have they got a great chrunch if you bight into them but if you suck on them, once you're past the chocolate, the honeycomb slowly melts in you're mouth. When you first taste them you taste the usual good quality mars milk chocolate that is very sweet and delicous and this is greatly complemented by the honeycomb which is moorish yet not overpowering. The maltesers themselves are light and airy, as anyone whose seen their advertising will know, Mars are trying to market maltesers, not quite as a healthy chocolate, but almost like the best pick of an unhealthy bunch, if that makes sense. They've been doing this with the catchphrase "you'll have to find other ways to be naughty".
I find when I eat maltesers I open the packet and eat the first few then before I even notice it I'm eating the last one. Hense I guess the "tease", I always feel like I want just one more. Clearly not great for my waist line but the standard packets (37g) only have 181 calories and you do feel like you get a lot in the packet.
Well it's difficult to comment on the price because you can get so many different sized packets. Usually the standard packets are about 60p in most corner shops and supermarkets. I have seen multi packs of the fun sized packets in pound land so obviously if you're trying to save a bit of money this would be a good starting point especially as you'll probably find you eat fewer in one sitting as there smaller portions (19g bags opposed to 37g). In general though I would say they are priced similary to other chocolate and sweet products.
One final thing to mention is that Mars now offer other malteser products e.g. white maltesers, icecreams and hot chocolate that you may want to check out if you enjoyed this product.
The malted chocolate balls known as Maltesers are made by Mars Confectionery. They consist of a crunchy malt centre covered in chocolate. They are smooth and almost perfectly round. Milk chocolate covered malted honeycomb balls.
