Welcome to our international snack blog. Generally I create the blogs myself but our 10 year old Director of Taste headed up this one on his own. I followed up with him and helped create the snack article but on occasion he will be the solo writer of a few snack reviews in the near future. A child's perspective on treats is equally, if not more important than an adult connoisseur of international snacks. I hope you agree. Enjoy!
Today World of Snacks is taking a trip and once again stoping at the little island nation known as England. Last time we visited England we sampled Jamie Dodgers Original Biscuits, and today we are going to try the one and only, Curly Wurly by Cadbury. This English snack is a funny little snack, as it is an edible ladder of rich chocolate and chewy caramel, a perfect combination of snack components.
This tasty treat we are currently reviewing for our international snack blog is made by the well known company, Cadbury. Initially Cadbury was started when a guy named John Cadbury who in 1824 decided he would like to open a grocer's shop in Birmingham, UK. Later this initial candy shop grew and grew to become the famous Cadbury confectionary brand. One of the most popular treats of the company is the Cadbury Dairy Milk, which of course we will be reviewing in the future. Now lets take a look at the Cadbury Curly Wurly.
Will World of Snacks carry the Curly Wurly by Cadbury? Being we already have a very strong English following chances are this delicious treat will make the cut to be included in our normal inventory.
I hope you enjoyed my first blog, I did this one with my father's help but hope to become a solo contributor in the near future. If you'd like to follow along with our progress and get a notification of the launch of our store be sure to submit your info to the right.
When we developed the concept of creating the world's first online international snack store we had a list of exciting snacks and countries we wanted to explore. To be honest, Poland was not on the list. Our last visit to Poland we sampled the very delicious Milka Milkinis Candy Bar and the time before we reviewed the scrumptious Prince Polo Candy Bar. With our third candy from Poland we are noticing a trend. Keep reading to see what this trend is.
Now let's take a look at Original Dr. Gerard Choco Cool Biscuits with Cream Filling and Chocolate. Our sample is a rather large pack that contains 8 biscuits, or in the US, cookies. The top of the package is clear allowing the appetizing snack to peek through. The remainder of the package is a translucent red. The cookies inside truly do look irresistible through the clear window. They appear to be a graham cracker style biscuit with a three piece chocolate bar attached to the top. Enough about how they look, let's sample this enticing snack from Poland.
Our test group for this snack review consisted of only adults all aged 25-31. The size of the packaging allowed us to share them with a group of people to get a wide assessment of the snack. The verdict was unanimous, and everyone truly enjoyed the Dr Gerard Choco Cool cookies. Although the biscuit looked like a typical graham cracker, it had a much more elegant flavor. They reminded me personally of the free cookies that airlines give on short flights in the US. The chocolate was milky and smooth and inside was a semi-sweet cream, that we initially mistook as coconut. The combination of all three elements together was truly delicious and presented well. The Choco Cool biscuits hint to a beloved american snack known as smores, but in a refined fashion.
So what's is the trend we are seeing with Polish Snacks? So far we have discovered that Poland is home to many delicious snack and is now one of our most sought after counties for snack. The Dr. Gerard Choco Cool Biscuits are my personal new favorite snack and the Prince Polo, is my son's favorite snack. Will World of Snacks offer Dr Gerard Choco Cool Biscuits when our international snack store launches later this year? You bet we will! To be notified when our sales site goes live and to receive a special discount we invite you to submit your information to the right.
Get ready we are heading back to Asia for this week's international snack review. Although we've traveled through flavors all across the Asian content and it's surrounding islands, this is our first visit to Singapore. However, we are reviewing a snack that is manufactured in Singapore, by a company we already know is Japanese owned company. So let's take a look at his Singaporean/Japanese snack.
Will World of Snacks offer Yan Yan Chocolate Cream by Meiji in our normal inventory? We imagine so, being we are already fans of the snack. When our international snack store launches later this year, we don't intended to offer a designated Singapore food section just yet, but you'll definitely find these in our selection of Japanese snacks. If you'd like to be notified of our grand opening be sure to submit your details to the right of follow along on our Facebook page.
World of Snacks is heading for the land down under for the second time this year. Of course, we are talking about Australia. Last time we reviewed a snack from Australia we took a look at Darrell Lea Dark Chocolate Ginger Fudge Bars. We also heard back from the folks who own Darrell and we think very highly of them. Although this week's snack is not owned by Darrell, we are still just as excited to give it a try.
This snack attack is brought to you by Arnotts. This long standing Australian snack company initially opened as a small bakery in 1865. Arnott's first customers where local townspeople and crews from ships that where docked at a port nearby in Newcastle. From humble beginning this snack company grew to employ thousands of workers from more than 40 countries worldwide. Many Australians have grown up enjoying their delicious treats and the company is considered by many to be a part of Australia's history. Now let's take a look at Arnott Mint Slice Biscuits!
These Australian Biscuits literally jumped off the shelf of our snack storage facility. The package gleamed like a powerful cylinder waiting to be unleashed. Arnott Mint Slice Biscuits come in a shinny wrapped package that appears to have melting chocolate, in the process of covering mint. If you enjoy mint like we do (most of us), then you'll appreciate the aesthetics of the treat. Even before you open the package you know what you are getting into. Now, let's get into these Arnott's Mint Biscuits and get on with our international snack review.
Will World of Snacks offer Arnott Mint Slice Biscuits as a part of our normally stocked inventory? We'd love to offer a new and improved version of Thin Mints to our American clientele along with the rest of the world. The only thing potentially holding us back is the price. What we neglected to mention is they start at $8 a pack, which is rather high for a single sleeve of cookies. We really enjoy them so chances are they will be offered in limited runs when we feature Australia. If you are interested in this snack or others be sure to submit your information to the right and we will send you a coupon and announcements once our international snack store launches later this year.
