I don’t think I have to explain for one minute why I decided to review these little snack cakes. There are only two reasons why you might not understand why I chose to review these. You might be a 3 year old child having never played in a schoolyard, and having never learned bad words. It could also be that you are a priest and have decided to keep a clean and wholesome mind. In both cases I’m fairly surprised you’re reading a site about candy, but in either case I’m glad you’re here and we’ll let the sick minded giggle at this treat for a minute.

The treat itself is actually a very attractive treat. They’re little mounds of chocolate with what I thought at first might be marshmallow and cookie. Quickly I realized that there is not cookie at the bottom, but instead a piece of wafer, like an ice cream cone. As I bit into it I also realized that the center is not in fact marshmallow but meringue. It appears that I’ve come across the packaged version of an Austrian treat I’ve tried before called “Schaumbecher”. Schaumbecher is an ice cream cone filled with meringue and covered in chocolate. It looks like a soft serve ice cream cone but has meringue instead off ice cream.

I’m fairly happy that this wasn’t marshmallow and was meringue, because I don’t think I could have eaten a marshmallow of this size, since I don’t really like marshmallow in large quantity. The meringue itself is fairly rich and sweet so even eating more than two is a challenge, but the texture and taste is OK, and I’m more than happy to save the rest for later.
