When I posted about Schoko Strolche from Dickmann’s last week, I really hadn’t anticipated much of a response. Then some lovely folk on Twitter suggested the Super ones were much better.
So here I am, with a box of Super Dickmann’s …
Which leads me to what I learnt about these chocolate coated marshmallow treats on Twitter:
- They’re originally Danish | Wikipedia
- The large sized versions can be used in a party game, where the player’s hands are tied behind their backs and the one that finishes eating the treat first is the winner.
- A children’s birthday party favourite dessert uses Chocolate Kisses as a primary ingredient.
- They can be served like a sandwich! There were recollections of them being popular in school cafeterias and a 1950’s delicacy.
Clearly, there’s a lot of love for the Super Dickmann’s style treat.
There was a nice cocoa aroma from the box on opening it, with the large chocolate kisses being held in place by a protective, shaped plastic insert. Amazingly, despite having spent around half an hour in the 24°C sun with me on their walk home from the supermarket, these guys were in perfect shape. Not cracked and not melting.
Twitterers – You were right. These are so much better than their mini counterparts.
The chocolate is the same as the dark coating from the Schoko Strolche box, which means there’s a nice cocoa bitterness to it but the ratios are far improved. For each bite, there’s a good chunk of thin chocolate coating to go along with the thick, fluffy and far more substantial marshmallow filling.
As I found the filling to be the best part of the little ones, it does make sense that I would like the Super size much better. The quantity of it really does improve the overall fun munchability of the chocolate kiss. Whilst the whipped marshmallowy filling doesn’t offer much in the way of flavour (other than meringuey sweetness), it’s entertaining to eat in a childish sort of way.
The wafer is still poor but doesn’t seem as utterly awful as in the mini ones. For whatever reason, I don’t feel they’re quite as stale and chewy – but happily as the Super Dickmann’s are so large, you could easily bin the base if you felt the need to.
