After making the Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops for Tuesdays with Dorie last week, I had malt balls on the mind…specifically Maltesers (malt balls made in Holland). There many references that the Malteser variety was better than our home grown Whoppers. I filed a note away in my unorganized brain to give the Maltesers a try. I have a little thing for malt balls, you see. Well, today, I happen to be driving by World Market when I remembered that someone said they found them there. I pulled right in. (there is that thing for malt balls, remember?).
I thought it might be fun to do a taste test between Maltesers and Whoppers. I gathered my most distinguished panel and we gave it a go.
We poured them into two bowls and taste tested each. Then, we closed our eyes and switched the bowls around. Well, two of us did. Colin just grabbed out of which bowl was closer and pronounced it the winner.
The Winner by Unanimous Decision:
The Maltesers won both tests. They really are better. Damn you Europeans and your superior candy! (although my first preference is still the big double dipped kind)
‘Cuz I needed an excuse to eat more malt balls….
