Advantages: Tasty chocolate, crunchy interior
Disadvantages: Can be unforgiving to sensitive teeth
Maltesers have been around for as long as I can remember. I've also eaten them on and off since I was a very young thing, and always got enjoyment from them.
For those who have never sampled these bad boys, their make-up is quite evident from the packaging - a crunchy malt/biscuit centre which is devoured in glorious mars chocolate on the outside.
Yet despite their obvious appeal, I have generally had quite an aloof relationship with them. They are tasty, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy them. They are the sort of chocolate snack that i'd be unlikely to choose if I was in a shop and looking for a treat. Yet, if I received a box of them for Christmas or a birthday, i'd probably gobble them away as if there was no tomorrow.
The main reason for this is that they are easy to eat, and suitable for even the healthy among us as a rare treat. On the other hand, they can be seen as quite ordinary. Every one is the same, and unlike other chocolate snacks, there has rarely been any variety (apart from a brief escapade into the white chocolate realm).
Due to it's texture, the interior malt bit also has a habit of being unforgiving to sensitive teeth.
The chocolate is undeniably nice though, and altogether they are definitely a lot of people's firm favourite in terms of Confectionery.
Summary: Buy a packet, or a box!
