Maltesers have always been a favourite of mine. There’s something about those chocolately, malty little balls that I find kind of irresistible.
Odds are, you’re probably more familiar with Whoppers than with Maltesers – as far as I’m aware, Maltesers are hard to come by in the States, while Whoppers are quite prevalent. That’s a shame, as I feel like Maltesers are clearly the superior product, though I’d have to do a side-by-side comparison to be sure.
Basically, Maltesers are crunchy, malt-flavoured balls (the package describes them as “Honeycombed centres”), covered in a relatively thin layer of milk chocolate.
They’re lightly crunchy, with a fairly complex malted taste – there’s a hint of bitterness, but not in a bad way. They’re sweet, but not intensely so, with a vaguely honey-like aftertaste. The milk chocolate coating complements the centre really well. They’re quite good; if you’re only familiar with Whoppers, I’d definitely recommend that you seek these out.
