These Snowballs from Milka are part of 2012’s seasonal releases from Mondelez here in Germany. They come in two varieties (that I know of) – either filled with an Oreo studded cream or with a plain and simple milk creme middle.
If you happen to lurk by the chocolate shelves at Easter, you’ll find this product very familiar. Yes, indeed – it’s a redesign of the Löffel Ei! By which I mean to say, this product isn’t exactly innovative. But it is darn cute and pretty fun.
Enjoy the first snow with Milka Snowballs. Balls in a snowball shape surrounded by delicate Milka Alpine milk chocolate and filled with an airy milkcrème filling, which can be spooned with pleasure: the waiting time can be ideally shortened!
Remember: Spoon with pleasure.
Then remember to wash the spoon before use. (And yes, there’s an advisory caution on the pack to remind you!)
Once you’re back from the kitchen sink, you’ll be greeted with a snowy foil wrapped ball… like… a snow… ball. *Ahem*
The chocolate isn’t “Standard” Milka – it’s softer. That’s because it needs to be broken into – but like a Christmas tree bauble, Mondelez want this creation to be shatter-proof. Interestingly (following on from my recent Polish Milka review) there’s no mention of the cocoa content on the packet and I do feel like this is a lighter cocoa flavour. But! This is a children’s Christmas product. The point really isn’t to consume quality chocolate… And if you think it is, take another look. This is a chocolate ball filled with creamy fluffy stuff.
Of course you’ll bite the top off (because that’s the reason you buy this sort of thing, isn’t it?) And the filling is exactly the same as in their Easter products. It’s light, sweet, fluffy, milky and mousse-like. It’s got an easy melt that (once again) leaves a fatty sort of coating on your tongue.
I like these Snowballs, much as I liked the Easter versions. I happen to think the moulding here is far more fun though – it’s a bit more detailed and textured, which I like. Fancy it isn’t, sweet and milky it is.
