I have always loved malted milk balls and Whoppers are still one of my favorite versions of the candy but when Easter rolls around there are a lot of different brands that put out malted milk balls. These are in the shape of an egg so they are oblong; they have a white shell to them with speckled colors to give them a nice appearance. I like that they are packaged in a clear bag because I can see if they have been exposed to heat (which will make them stick together) and to see if there are any broken pieces. A couple years ago they started making the small mini packs of these which are great to put in plastic Easter eggs. They can also be used for Easter baskets if you don't want to have unwrapped candy in it. What I love about them is that they can be sliced (with a sharp knife) and used on the sides of cakes or on top of cupcakes as an edible decoration. Even out of the bag, these have a great taste to them but the candy shell that protects the malt ball center is thicker than other brands. These are inexpensive and have a really smooth taste to them. Unlike Whoppers that only have a thin milk chocolate coating to them, the shell on this is thick. If you opt to suck on them instead of chewing them or biting into them your mouth will get discolored from it. I wish that they would make pastel colored malted milk balls that had a little more color to them so they could be used to decorate cakes without them getting 'lost' in the white frosting. The thick shell is what makes this different from other malted milk balls and the Easter themed malted eggs but they will melt if they are exposed to heat. The shell will melt if you keep them in your hand too long so keep that in mind if you are planning on using these to decorate treats or cake slices.
