Another classic has enter the laboratory this time these little delights consist of a roughly spherical malt honeycomb centre, surrounded by milk chocolate. Produced by Mars, these are “the lighter way to enjoy chocolate” If you guessed them, a pat on the back for you. If you haven’t they are of course called Maltesers. First sold in the 1930s, Maltesers were originally described as “energy balls” and aimed at slimming women. Having only 187 calories per 37g bag. They certainly remain the slimmers’ favourite. So what do these little malt balls taste like? Pretty good actually.
As soon as the packet is open the smell of milk chocolate is in your nostrils in no time. The chocolate is coated thinly and evenly around the malted centre. Your fingernail could easily scrap it off without much effort. There is a couple of ways to can go around eating these.
1. Pop one in your mouth, and wait for everything to dissolve into mush.
2. Wait for the chocolate to melt before crunching up the insides.
3. Munch your way through the entire thing.
4. Bite the thin covering of chocolate off, then crunch the inside to pieces.
All combination will encounter the same taste sensation. The smooth milk chocolate combines well with the light crunch of the honeycomb. Simple in design and flavours, these little chocolate joys haven’t changed much during the years and they certainly wont be changing any time soon. You can’t stop with one though. The packet can be gone before you had chance to savour the taste. Malteasers are the tiny chocolates who like to tease your chocolate craving whether on a diet or not.
