Highlighting snacks from around the world, our international junk food blog is searching the globe for the very best sweet and salty treats. We have traversed all across the world and have circled back to France. The last and only snack we have sampled from France was the Eiffel Bon Bon's and we pretty much determined it was an imposter snack! The Eiffel Bon Bon's are solely made for US consumption. For this international snack review we wanted to make sure we had a genuine French treat. So World of Snacks searched for something written in French!
Little Higgy by Cemoi
This French snack definitely looks good. It comes in a dark chocolate color plastic bag that is highlighted with a caramel color. Pictured front and center appears to be a very tinny hedgehog eating a tempting chocolate snack. The text on the front is in both French and English. On the back there are several additional language making it apparent Cemoi produces for the international market. Now we know how Little Higgy chocolate snacks look, let's see how they taste!
The Taste Test
Sweet! Petit Herisson Cemoi is among one of the sweetest snacks we have discovered from around the world. This French sugary snack is a fancy marshmallow that is coated with caramel and crispy milk chocolate. I am sure this would be a hit with kids but unfortunately our test group was only adults for this review. Typically international snacks are less sweet than American snacks, however this is not the case here. Although the snack is packed full of sugar, we did enjoy it. The gooey marshmallow surround by a crisp crunchy chocolate made for an enjoyable experience. We believe in moderation the Petit Herrison or the Little Higgy is delicious, but once you've had a few you may move onto something else.
Will World of Snacks stock Little Higgy by Cemoi when we launch our store for snacks from around the world later this year? So far our selection of French snacks is limited. If we locate several more loved snacks from France than chances are we will indeed stock this snack.
