Malt Balls

The Sweet Life

I’m not really used to flavoured malt balls. For the most part I know malt balls as being a milk chocolate flavour with a crunchy bit in the middle. The idea of giving them flavours is sort of new to me. Having said that, I think it should work, it’s a candy that should be able to change it up a bit flavour wise. Seeing as they come in 5 flavours, these handmade treats will get comments for each:

Milk Chocolate - This is pretty similar to the common malt ball or "Whopper", but the chocolate is a little thicker. The flavour is nice and smooth, and since it's been packaged with the flavoured malt balls I think some of the flavours have combined creating some subtle side flavours.

Dark Chocolate - The chocolate flavour in this is a lot deeper than the milk chocolate, and although it's not the most bitter dark chocolate, the bitterness mixes really well with the sweet of the malt center. I think I like this one more than the milk chocolate.

Lemon - Hmmmm, I'm not really sure what I think of these. I like lemon and I like the other malt balls but for some reason the lemon doesn't seem to work as well as the others, not my favourite.

Mint - I like mint and chocolate and it's not bad in the malt ball form. The mint is pretty powerful so it kind of takes over the malt centre. With some subtle changes this could really work well.

Coffee - The malt and the coffee flavour actually work really well together. I'm not a big fan of coffee and when I do drink it I tend to load it with sugar. This treat being super sweet and with only a light coffee flavour, I don't mind it at all.
